We had a perfectly pleasant stay at the Campanille. The setting is certainly nothing to write home about (it's situated on an industrial estate) but the staff were friendly and the room was clean.

The bed was huge and very comfortable, the shower was powerful and the bathroom was well presented with plenty of fresh towels.

The exterior of the hotel was a bit tired but the rooms appeared to have been recently renovated. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast, which was cooked by the receptionist who appeared to be multi-tasking!

The hotel had a very French feel to it, which was added to by all the staff being from there and speaking in their native tongue to one another.

If you're looking for a low cost no-frills hotel we'd definitely recommend the Campanille over other budget hotels such as Travelodge, Premier Inn etc.

We paid £35.00 for the room and opted for the full English breakfast which, though not cheap (£6 a head), was very tasty.

  • Liked — The bed
  • Disliked — The three flights of stairs to our room.

You could be mistaken for thinking you were in France staying here. The accommodation was identical to those I've stayed in before in France.

The room was comfortable, service was friendly and breakfast was good.

I'd be happy to stay here again.

I held a conference here in June, and stayed the night before. We chose the hotel due to it's competitive delegate rate. We have used many Campanile hotels in the past and found them of varying quality- this certainly wasn't one of the better ones!
The accomodation was good for the price, with everything you require for a business trip.
The conference room was very hot and we had to open the fire doors on a very windy day to let in some fresh air.
The extractor fan didn't work at breakfast so the whole reception/restaurant/conference areas smelt like burning fat, which set the fire alarms off 5 seperate times.
The delegate meals were ok, but came out at such varying intervals some people had finished before others had even got their meals.
Staff did what they could, but some issues were beyond their control.

The location of this Campanile is on an industrial site on the outskirts of Wakefield. But don't let that put you off; this is actually the nearest you'll get to the genuine French Campanile in the UK. And ignore the comments which are not recent - this is not Bates Motel or a threatening place or full of drunks. There's been a change of local management who know how to run budget accommodation properly. There was even a red Ferrari in the car park.

It is run by young French people, which lifts it out of the ordinary, and the bar/restaurant seems to be a hang-out for French people living locally. The motel is exactly the same design as most of the French Campaniles - they must have imported almost every part of the building from France. It also has the restaurant with the salad bar and "dish of the day" for £10.95 at which Campanile in France excel. All of this makes you feel like you are actually in France and on holiday - now you can't say that about a Premier Lodge!

The room was exactly as any other room I've been in in a French Campanile, down to the weather proof carpets on the external access routes, the shutters on the windows and the electricity socket partially hidden behind the curtain.

There was lots of hot water in the perfectly adequate bathroom and the big bed was extremely comfortable with good bedlinen and pillows.

We were there the night England played (and beat)France in Paris in the RWC, and there was great atmosphere, enhanced by watching the match on French TV5Monde and not the ITV.

We had a great time, lovely food and wine and good night's sleep for £40.95. Merci beaucoup!

(One complaint - they'd run out of Rémy Martin and the only cognac was Courvoisier!)

  • Liked — The ambience/service/hospitality
  • Disliked — Industrial location, but it convenient for us.

I stayed in the hotel with my boyfriend after we had attended a wedding reception close by.

The rooms were large and the beds were very comfy after a long day.
The rooms had everything you could need in them for a one night stay and the check in staff were very friendly.

I would definately stay in another Campanile hotel, as if they are anything like this one they would be good value for money and provide you with everything you need for a short stay over.
