“Excellent stay with our baby”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed staying here. We attended a wedding over the road at Oulton Hall during the day. The hotel room was spacious and nicely decorated. Everything was modern. There was tea and coffee in the room (but no biscuits). We stayed on the ground floor and the room was nice and quiet at night over looking fields. Breakfast was pastries, scrambled eggs, sausages and beans with toast, cereals, yogurts and fruit. The cooked breakfast was really good and I had a lovely hot chocolate for my morning drink (they also did tea & coffee) :) The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

I have stayed here twice before and the stay has been great. Exactly as it should be clean, nice rooms and nice staff.

I stayed in April after being unable to get a hotel room in the centre of Leeds I managed to get the last room here. I checked in about 6 and the staff were nice and quick. I was advised I had a disabled room with wet room, no problem at all stayed in plenty of these before and no issues.

I literally had time to open the door and throw my bags in the room as the taxi into town was already outside.

I got back to the hotel after midnight and got into the room. As per the norm, nice room and clean until i go to the bathroom. The shower area was disgusting. Please see the pics, the drain was so choked with hair and fluff that the rest of the bathroom flooded when in use. Dirty moulded tiles. Really not the standard that the Holiday Inn has shown in the past. Anyway i already knew it was the last room and it was well past bed time.

The bed was clean and comfortable and the room was quiet until the morning when the usual sound of doors etc... started.

Breakfast was quite poor. The hot food was not great looking at all and the scrambled eggs i had i assume were make from powder from a packet.

At check out i didnt complain about the shower. It was early and i just needed to be out and on my way so I cannot say how the hotel would have handled my complaint but thats my fault and i entirely accept that. However surely the cleaning staff should take one look at that shower drain and see that it is completely unacceptable?

3 stars out of 5 as previous visits have been great.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Firstly I would like to apologise regarding the shower area within your guest room, I was horrified by the photographs taken and I would like to thank you for bringing the matter to my attention as I can now investigate the cleaning schedule in place during your stay. Please be assured that guest rooms are cleaned and maintained to high standards and unfortunately this fell below a satisfactory standard during your visit.
The cooked breakfast is standard and of high quality and I am sorry that you found it unsatisfactory during your stay, I would also like to reassure you that our scrambled egg is cooked fresh and not from powder. If we are aware of imperfections we would always rectify the problem.
Once again thank you for bringing these matters to my attention to enable me to investigate and I hope that we can welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

Kind Regards,
Karen Wood

We spent a lovely night at the hotel last week whilst visiting Leeds. We have stayed here before a few years ago and it is still as good. It has very friendly helpful staff and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is a help yourself and offers very good value as included in the price of the room. It is a way out from the centre of Leeds but we caught a bus at the end of the road and seems to be a very good bus service. We had a meal at the next door Toby Carvery which was also very good. All in all a good overnight hotel especially if you get a good rate. Many thanks to all the staff and well done. Look forward to our next visit.

Fab hotel !! Everything you need !! Great for when coming out of town as easy links off motorway.

Clean, modern and friendly staff. And always very good rates as its couple of minutes outside city centre.
The female receptionist with glasses and short blonde hair is always really lovely stayed her 5 times and she always leaves a good impression and chats to us when checking in !!

Highly recommended.

Great location out of town about a mile from Woodlesford train station for trains to Leeds and beyone. Friendly staff. The rooms have heaters and windows (that open). You get a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, heating and ventilation. All that you've ever wanted. Stay here before the idiots at Holiday Inn decide to downgrade it by removing the heating!

Stayed here after checking other places, next time i will check here first, rooms were warm comfortable, staff were brilliant, efficient and friendly, and the carvery nxt door was great for food and drinks. We will definately be staying here again. We were in a car visiting friends and family and it's only a short ride to Leeds city centre and there's lots of places to visit nearby if you want. couldn't find any faults at all with this place. Highly recommended.

We were there for just a night stop over. We selected this hotel because we wanted to have dinner at "Prashad" an Indian Restaurant at BD11 1AT which has outstanding reviews.
The dinner was fabulous, in fact the best we have had in UK so far.
The staff is very friendly. The receptionist helped my wife with the bags and also printed out the directions for Prashad.
Room size is a tad small for 3 persons... otherwise the hotel is clean and good.
