Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What can I say about the service at Premier in South. After being let down by our air bnb the day before we traveled what should have been at 3.5hour journeying I called Premier Inn South Shak was amazing, he arranged for our family of 5 to have joining rooms so no stress or worries. After 4.5 hours in the car we were greated in the lobby by Louise and team with a complimentary drink, activity gifts for little one, checked in and off we went to our room. Our rooms were lovely and clean and super comfortable with a few bubbles added to help unwind. We were off to a wedding the next day close by but also celebrating our youngests 5th birthday, we all headed down for breakfast in the morning which Shak, Louise and team had laid on a special birthday celebration for our little lady with gifts and banners. After a magical morning with everyone including other guests singing happy birthday off we went to the wedding, had an amazing time and returned to a welcoming and cosy place to stay for our secound night. I honestly can't thank this team enough for making a very stressful beginning into an amazing wonderful stressfree weekend. I was overwhelmed by Shak, Louise and the teams efforts, attention to detail, genuine love for their job and customers. Thank You all for our fantastic stay and can not recommend you all enough.

Back to stay at Wakefield South again and the service hasn’t disappointed so far. The rooms are clean, beds are comfy and staff are friendly and helpful. Shoutout to Jamie who checked us in; he was super friendly and gave our little boy a small gift which went down well. A really lovely place to stay if you’re visiting Wakefield.

This is my favourite hotel in the whole of the UK. The staff are beyond wonderful and the rooms were spotless. Really comfortable beds and the best full English breakfast ever. It's known as Premier Inn Wakefield South and is easily accessible. Thank you to all of them.

Pleasant, helpful staff (thank you Jamie for the information regarding evening dining). Breakfast was of a good standard. Hotel had many features we’d like to see in all Premier Inns - a lift, opening windows and a breakfast area with space to move around.

Before we booked we were advised that the hotel was about to be refurbished and checking out reviews on Tripadvisor many comments referred to the inferior condition of the rooms. That said we went ahead and booked three nights here whilst visiting family in the area. The welcome was first class. All the staff we met excelled in customer service skills. Yes, the rooms are tired and in need of refurbishment but our room was clean and functional. Cannot wait to see the refurbished hotel and would definitely stay here again.

The room had a smell on arrival, we couldn’t make out if it was a smokers room and some sort of disinfectant was used, we became nose blind so it wasn’t too much of an issue. The heating didn’t work and it was quite cold, especially in the shower room and there wasn’t a heated towel rail. The fan in the room was very dirty and the shower room floor was extremely worn, the skirting board in the shower room was disintegrating. Only one of the two bedside lights was working. We stay in premier inns frequently and I have to say this was the worst and I would never stay here again. The whole place needs a total upgrade and revamp.

Lovely welcome at the hotel, really easy check-in. We had an accessible room which was clean and had everything we needed. We had a breakfast at the hotel the following morning which was delicious and really good value. Natasha and Sue made our visit a really excellent experience so thank you to you both. Natasha for the wonderful welcome and Sue for the fabulous food. We will be back ☺️

This Premier Inn is very convenient for Wakefied, set back from the main road it is a relatively quiet location. Breakfast is excellent as freshly cooked and not served from heated trays, definitely a plus. Room was satisfactory, bathroom on the small side, shower tray small for larger person, and shower curtain inadequate, water sprayed over barthroom floor! Television was small for room, I watched a football match and could hardly see players. The tv handset was not very responsive.
