“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Stayed here a few times on business trips, always clean and comfortable and friendly staff. Breakfasts and evening meals excellent. Very good value for money and free Wi-Fi in most rooms - but not all!

Room Tip: If you need Internet access ask for a room that can receive Wi-Fi.

Dear Simon,

Thank you for your kind review of Heath Cottage, we are glad you had an enjoyable stay with us.

As you mentioned the wi-fi is not accessable in all rooms, this is something we are looking to improve in the next few months, as always the wi-fi is accessable in the lounge and bar areas of the hotel.

We hope that if you have business in the area again then you will chosse to stay with us again.

Kind Regards

Chris Hayes

Dear Mary,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the service you received at Heath Cottage, although I wasn't the manager at the time of your visit I just thought I would respond to let you know the changes we have made.

Heath Cottage is now under new management, we have worked very hard over the past few months to ensure the standard and service we deliver is consistant and to the highest standards possible, I am sorry that when you visited you found items of food undercooked. We are currently working on a new website which should be up and running in the next few weeks so please keep your eye out for new menus and special offers.

We do hope you will consider us again in the future as I am sure the next time you visit will be a better experience.

Kind Regards

Chris Hayes

Had a baptism reception here yesterday very very disappointing, the buffet was half cooked and missing items asked for, tried to sort this out and was fobbed off as no managers on site, that in itself is very poor, the day after when i called the staff member whose name i wont dispose here was very rude, didnt help with my complaint, was completely disgusted as was pretty much called a liar. The room carpets were not cleaned, there is a hole in one of the room floors very dangerous deffo a hazard. Definitely overpriced and i would not recommend this place at all for functions, i would have done a better buffet myself. Definitely overpriced please don't make same mistake i did and book here

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very accommodating. We made them aware of our need for early check in and our room was ready at 10.30am. Room spotlessly clean and the bed was fantasticly comfortable with crisp bedding. Landladly welcoming, helpful and accommodating. bathroom was a little dated but again, spotless. Overall good value for money and would definately stay there again. Within easy reach of Dewsbury rail station so good location for links to surrounding areas. As a family run hotel who are up against the likes of premierInn etc, Heath Cottage do a fantastic job. Breakfast brilliant. Well done Heath Cottage.

Room Tip: Good value for money

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This hotel is in a good location for the surrounding area of Wakefield, Huddersfield, Leeds, etc and close to the M1. There is ample parking and the hotel itself, whilst somewhat dated, is quite comfortable. Our room was at the back of the hotel and quiet although those guests at the front may experience some traffic noise. The room was pleasant and clean but unfortunately the bed was only a double - king size is always preferable - and was rock hard and the two pillows were so thin they were almost useless! Breakfast the next morning was pleasant, there was a reasonable choice and it was well presented. The coffee was lovely. Staff seemed a little thin on the ground but then the place wasn't exactly heaving with guests! The one member of staff we encountered was pleasant and helpful. If we really needed to we would stay again.

Room Tip: As there may be some traffic noise from the main road, ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

Wedding 17th August - just perfect. The hotel is ideal for a wedding venue with different rooms to use including outside patio which made sure all guests were comfortable. Food was excellent and all the staff could not do enough to ensure the day was perfect.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
A big thank you to all the staff, you were great.
