“A peaceful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had the normal excellent experience at a Premier Inn. However two things stood out at this one. Firstly although it's near the A1 there was only a subdued constant hum of traffic and with a lawn at the back (plus rabbits hopping around in the morning) and fields opposite it had a peaceful feel. And secondly I would like to compliment Margaret on Reception for her friendliness, diligence and obvious pride in her work.

First time ever at a Premier Inn. Excellent Inn and room clean and tidy. Bed very comfortable to the point we didn't want to get up in the morning. Staff extremely helpful and polite.
Would not hesitate in going back there again.

Travelled from Bristol on the way to York for the train exhibition at the museum. Started out at 14.30 for a maximum journey time of 3.5 to 4 hours to Premier Inn Pontefract North. After a delay on the M42 and at a walking pace between J26 and J29 on the M1 plus the closure of J2 to J3 on the M18 we eventually arrived at 22.45. Never has a hotel looked so inviting and this one was no exception. Bedroom and bathroom spotlessly clean. Night staff friendly and helpful and nightcap in the bar cool and refreshing. After a good nights sleep it was down for breakfast to be greeted by more smiley, helpful staff. Costa coffee and porridge on offer if that's to your taste plus all the usual cereals and fried foods for breakfast. It's said to be situated on an industrial estate but I've never been more surrounded by greenery than at this inn. We overlooked a massive lawn on which we saw numerous hares feeding and all surrounded by trees. We were only there for the night so if your journey takes you to this area I couldn't think of a better place to rest over.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the lawn.

We stopped for one night at this refurbished Premier Inn. What even better value for money this hotel was! New large flat screen TV, new bathroom suite, fresh decor and Costa coffee for breakfast, instead of the usual flasks. Staff very helpful and friendly.

We (4 of us) stayed at Premier Inn North both on our way to and from a holiday in Norfolk. On both visits, from first contact to leaving, we were extremely well looked after. Everything was explained to us regarding facilities, meals etc. and we found the rooms clean and comfortable - even to a back-rest for reading in bed! The soundproofing was excellent, which had been a worry as we were so close to the A1M/M62 junction, but with the windows closed, there was no noise at all. We all had a good night's sleep so unfortunately could not claim a refund due to a disturbed night!!

We have now stopped looking on comparison sites for our overnight stops, as we are perfectly happy with Premier Inn. We can highly recommend this Inn without hesitation.

I needed a hotel for an overnight business trip. This hotel was easy to find in the dark, large car park and no difficulty finding a place close to reception even though I arrived late at night. Helpful and friendly lady at check in, who even helped me with all my luggage, as my room was on the first floor. Room was super clean with a bright, clean modern bathroom. Everything in the room/bathroom worked. Breakfast in the morning was really good, continental buffet and hot selection, freshly cooked to order. Professional, friendly, caring staff in restaurant - I couldn't have asked for more. Will definately stay here again when I'm in the area.
