Holiday Inn Wakefield M1, Jct. 40
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Ossett
Reviewed 13 July 2012

The staff I came into contact with during my stay were first-class. All of them without exception had a very “can-do” attitude.

The Hotel is very conveniently placed being a very short distance of the M1, however not so close as to be affected by the road noise. My room and the public areas where clean and pleasant and overall my short stay represented excellent value for money.

I would recommend staying here instead of central Leeds if you were not too bothered with short trip up the motorway.

Stayed for 1 night after several rather eventful stays other hotels (Not in the Holiday Inn chain). Whilst not being the pretiest establishment externally don't let that put you off. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was sound - Clean, confortable an well maintained. Indeed the only thing to complain about was 'there was Nothing complain about' .Will be back.

Room Tip: Book in advance on the website www.holidayinn.co.uk for rooms cheaper than the days inn motel across...

I have become a regular weekly guest at this hotel. From my first visit the staff were extremely friendly, efficient and professional. From reception, bar, restaurant, housekeeping, night security, and other department I may have overlooked , there is clearly a desire to make guests feel valued and special. The team here, (believe me they are a team), are to be congratulated for their enthusiasm and commitment to getting it right. Nothing is ever too much trouble with questions or queries being handled immeadiately. This is a gem and anyone having to use a hotel in this area should look no further. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you to everyone at the hotel for making every visit a pleasant one.

I have stayed in many Holiday Inn hotels in the past few years and this one is very functional in the services it offers it's guests. The restaurant is very pleasant and the food of a high standard in comparison to some other Holiday Inns I could mention. But what stood out for me about this hotel was the excellent customer service from all the staff I encountered during my stay. From the moment I checked in, to the staff in the restaurant and then on to checking out the staff made you feel genuinely welcome and that it actually meant something to them that you enjoyed your stay.

Spent a comfortable night in a clean, quiet room.
The hotel is close to the M1 but you are not troubled by traffic noise, access to the motorway is nearby.

This is a typical Holiday Inn that meets your basic needs, but it's location is a bit remote. The room is ok with decent work space. The restaurant has a decent selection of food that will work for a vegetarian, and there's a so-so Indian restaurant a short walk away. Restaurant hours were a bit strange for me (late), so I'd advise that you check in advance before making plans.

I was a bit dubious at first at having my wedding reception at a Holiday Inn, buit i had an absolutley amazing day!! Our wedding planner Sally Ruff could not have doen anymore for us - she guided me through everything, and calmed me down when i got stressed -she was amazing!! We were greeted with a red carpet and bucks fizz, and there is a lovely gazebo outside on the lawned areas for photos.
I provided the decorations, and the hotel did a fantastic job with the baloons and table decorations, it looked better than i could ever have hoped for! I was worried about the food but it really was 5 star!
The evening buffet outdid expectations again, with beautiful quiche's, fancy sausage rolls and gogeous sandwiches!
It only took about 40 minutes to change the wedding breakfast room into the evening do, and again, they did wonders with the decorations i provided!! The DJ was excellent! Played any song we wanted and my mum got up and danced and she NEVER does that!! He was ace!! We will book him if we ever need a DJ for anything else!!
We got the executive suite which was very nice - there was a kit kat chunky and a bottle of water for us, there were rose petals on the bed, and the next morning we realised we had forgotton our toothbrush and all we had to do was call reception and we had one delivered at 6am - 2 mins after the phone call! Thank you!
The breakfast was lovely! It was a buffet breakfast with all the usual suspects present, and also coissants etc for the more continental feel! I had a full english to help with the hangover!!
Absolutley brilliant - everyone keeps saying it was the best wedding theyhad been to - thank you Sally and everyone at The Holiday Inn!!!!! xxxxxx
