Very large clean room. staff were great and was made to feel very welcome. We took the offer of the early booking deal, with breakfast included. This meal set us up for the day. Will stay at this hotel again.

For some reason this hotel's bedroom doors are not cushioned so there's a risk that doors bang if they are allowed to swing shut. At 6 am ( as happened in my stay not just once but over a 20 minute period just long enough to make sure you stay awake) this is not a good sound and is likely to disturb. The hotel is pleasant enough, easy to find, and conveniently located if you are en route to the north. But I was irritated that the on line price doesnt include breakfast (another £10.00) making the stay not that good value compared with a holiday inn express where continental breakfast is normally included in the circa £59 on line price. That said, the breakfast was good and the service excellent. The bed was comfortable and though the room was too hot there was an opening window looking out onto a quiet corner of the rear car park away from the road. I guess the value of a holiday inn over a HI express is that it provides better facilities for the guest staying more than the one night i stayed - though I am not sure that the extra costs or the restaurant or lounge facilities are worth it for one night

Room Tip: rooms looking over the rear car park tend to be quiter I feel but beware the banging doors

Dear Alpinahed

Thank you for taking the time out to post a review on Tripadvisor where you outlined your concerns with regards to your most recent visit.

I have addressed the door issues with my Maintenance Manager, who assures me that this will be a focus point to rectify over the coming days.

Thank you for your positive feedback with regards to breakfast, we've recently launched a new breakfast product and the feedback has been terrific.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to welcome you back in the very near future

Kind regards

I stayed at the hotel while on a cross country trip as needed an early start. The hotel was everything required. Clean, well located and had friendly staff, especially the receptionist. Not too much in the immediate area of the hotel but the bright lights of Ossett are only 25 minutes walk or a short bus journey away.

We held a meeting and stayed the night at the Holiday Inn Wakefield recently and I was really impressed at their attention to detail and attentiveness during our stay.

the hotel is not the most modern but was clean tidy and well maintained. The one thing that made them shine was the personal touches and the attitude of their team. The confernce team were excellent and went out of their way to accomodate us and make us feel welcome. The nicest thing that made our trip worthwhile was the little things like when we left the conference manager left us with a couple of bottles of water for our journey and a cheeky Kit-Kat. something so small but made us feel great, especially after a hard day unloading, training and packing up again.

I would definately recommend and return again and again.
