We stayed at the Brittania Leeds Bradford Airport hotel last week, on a Monday to Friday coach holiday with JustGo holidays. JustGo often use Brittania Hotels, and we were very surprised and pleased with the very high standard of this one. The location is excellent, in a country park setting with a drive leading down to the hotel entrance.
Our room was on the lower ground floor, but as the hotel was built on a hill, our room, number 120, wasn't in the basement as expected but overlooked an open field. The room wasnt huge, but plenty big enough, and was clean, warm, nicely decorated and well furnished. Unusual for a 'budget' hotel, it had a small fridge, an ironing board and iron, and hairdryer.
It also has a safe, which I thought would be very useful to lock away my lap top when we were out for the day. However, when I asked at reception for the combination I was told the room safes have been disconnected, but I could leave my lap top in reception when we went out.
The only slight fault we could find with our room was the old style TV which didnt seem to have all the Freeview channels and the picture wasnt that great, but wasn't a big deal.
All the staff were very pleasant and helpful, especially the chef, always smiling and chatty. The food was buffet service, not always piping hot I must admit, but varied and plentiful. A very good selection at breakfast, including cereals, fruit, yogurt, cold meats, croissants, and full English cooked breakfast, as much as you wanted. Oh yes, a few moans and groans that the toaster was slow, but then you'll always get people complaining about little unimportant things, even at the very reasonable price we paid for the holiday.
We were also concerned that being an airport hotel we would be disturbed by planes taking off and landing nearby, but in fact I believe the airport was about 4 miles away, and to be honest we didnt see one aeroplane all the time we were there!
We often have holidays with JustGo, staying in various Brittania Hotels, and this one was definitely the best so far!
