“Wonderful room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Oh what a nice room. Such a big bed and a separate room for the third member of the family within the suite. I really enjoyed my stay in Room 12. The restaurant is just next door accessible from the Premier In without needing to go outside.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 12!

I think it is safe to assume that this isn't a purpose build Premier Inn, lots of narrow hallways and staircases, although it didn't affect my stay. Just seems like the place could do with a bit of a makeover.

Service was slow on arrival but staff friendly enough.

Room was one of the smallest Premier Inn rooms I have stayed in and the bathroom was tiny. Shower cubicle could barely fit me in. One of the towels had loads of hair on it, so good job that two were supplied as the other was clean.

Service at the adjoining pub/restaurant was also quite slow but the food was served very quickly and was very pleasant.

No problems with parking or noise etc. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you like a nice long shower, ask for a room with a decent sized bathroom.

Welcoming Receptionist.
Hotel needs to be modernised to have accessible access through the main door in Reception rather than through a side door of the pub.
Wheelchair users should be given the dignity of entering through Reception.
There may also be issues that some guests may not find it acceptable to come through licensed premises.
The 3 steps in the ground floor corridor have no warning markings .Altogether an inaccessible Hotel.
Pub attached had a queue of 20 waiting at the bar.Spend some money hire more staff.
Not enough plug sockets in the room.

Room Tip: Not suitable for the Visually Impaired.

We used the Pontefract South Premier Inn as a stopover on our way up to Scotland. The accommodation was fine, if showing a few signs of the very heavy wear and tear its clients subject it to (e.g. dirty work boots). Cleanliness was fantastic otherwise, as carpet apart, the place was spotless. The restaurant menu, on the other hand, left much to be desired. It was just one fry up after another. However, the staff came to the rescue by happily substituting healthier options so I got a decent meal in the end.

My partner and I stayed for two nights while attending a wedding nearby. Room was clean and comfortable. At the end of the day, these rooms are for sleeping in and not sitting in all day so they serve their purpose. Staff were very friendly and would ask about your stay etc. Breakfast was just what I needed after a night out, plenty there and beautiful.

Every effort made!
I had last minute booked the last room in the hotel- a twin, however being a solo female traveller in line with Premier Inns policy to put single female travellers on at least the first floor, for our saftey, every effort was made to accommodate this. As it was it was so late this was not possible, this led to my room being up graded to put me right next to reception. - I felt very cared for.

Comfy bed
Clean room
Tired and dated bathroom
Great breakfast

Stayed here for 2 nights while attending a family funeral & we parked our car in the car park near the road and came out in the morning to find the windows smashed and serious damage to our car,

the staff were helpful and very supportive ( thank you ) but sad to say didn't seem surprised ! When the police attended & checked the CCTV

that part of the car park isn't covered ! Sadly on our 2nd morning we saw another poor customer dealing with exactly the same issue having parked in the same place. Again the staff were helpful but not surprised !

I spoke to the manager & suggested he needs to make people aware of the issue in that part of car park by putting up a sign , whilst he was polite but was clear that he didn't see it as his issue.

We are now faced with a very large repair bill.

As for the hotel the rooms were freezing as the electric heating kept tripping & the bathroom was Baltic !! The room was reasonably clean but everything about the place was so old and worn no one could have made it shine !

The wifi is awful and Absolutely no phone signal on O2 or vodaphone .

The staff are Absolutley fantastic though the were helpful polite friendly and went out of their way to help at every opertunity they deserve to work in an appropriate environment not the run down shabby unsafe excuse for a hotel !!! I bet Lenny Henry won't be staying here anytime soon ?
