Positive Reviews

Great location for tourists

Guests staying at this hotel for the purpose of touring Wakefield have been pleased with this hotel's location, especially in respect of public transport stations. This hotel is just a few minutes away from the Wakefield Westgate Station and the Wakefield bus station giving guests the convenience of having easy transport to many popular sites.

Popular restaurants within walking distance

This hotel's area includes very popular and well-rated restaurants including Iris, Thai on the Square and the Mex Cantina. So, guests who have not felt like the hotel's on-site restaurant for the night have not gone without a good meal.

Attentive staff make all the difference

Reviews suggest that the staff members at this hotel more than go out of their way for guests on every occasion. The front desk staff ensure an efficient check-in, the restaurant staff are cordial and polite and the housekeeping staff are always happy to share a warm smile and greeting.

Negative Reviews

Walls seem paper thin

Guests have not been pleased with the noise levels experienced. Guests can clearly hear neighbouring guests due to the fact that the walls separating rooms are thin enough to allow sound to pass through them quite easily to other rooms. This caused frustration as some guests struggled to get a good night sleep.

Situated in a noisy part of Wakefield

Several guests have made mention of the buzzing nightlife surrounding this hotel. Many bars and pubs are in the area which makes for an entertaining night out. However, on the other hand, also makes for a noisy stay for guests choosing to get a good night sleep.

Better to eat off-site

Although not many reviews complained about the food at the on-site restaurant being unbearable, several reviews did indicate that guests are made to wait a long time for a table due to the small size of the restaurant and the menu is not as extensive with choices as some of the nearby restaurants.
