Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Deepee2 The Fire Alarm is very Efficient
Stayed here because I couldn't get a room at the Brighouse hotel were I usually stay. Entrance to the room did not impress, with threadbare carpet right outside the door. The room decor was dated and not particularly inviting.
As in all Holiday Inns, there is no form of heating in the bathroom, this is fine until you have a shower of a bath, and then it is impossible to use the bathroom mirror. For me, it gives me a problem shaving, for my wife, she can't see to do her make-up. Why??
The food was OK, and service was energetic and enthusiastic. Although the room decor went with the rest of the hotel, dated.
Reference the Fire Alarm, there was a fault with the system, however the alarm sounding 3 times during the night, beginning at 11.30pm and the last being at about 04.30am my nights sleep was non-existent. There was no mention of this when I checked out or any apology, not very good I'm afraid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AnnieO52 Excellent staff
Our son was having his wedding ceremony and reception at the Holiday Inn and we decided to stay overnight.
We booked 3 rooms. One for ourselves and 2 for our parents.
We requested ground floor rooms for the parents which was accomodated.
We were able to check in early before the wedding ceremony which was good.The rooms were very clean and spacious.
Approx 40 people from the wedding stayed overnight.
We were all able to sit together for breakfast which was thoughtful.
The food at the wedding and at breakfast was excellent.
The waiters and waitresses were very efficient and cheerful.
Reception staff were polite and helpful.
Well done to all the staff at the Holiday Inn for making it a good experience for us all.

Poor state - carpets bare, bathroom straight out of 1975!
Breakfast very poor, watered down fresh orange, awful coffee, and dirty plate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fatrep32 Bring your own bog roll
Great location, big rooms & nice staff are three of the plus points along with many superb curry houses a short drive away.
Down sides are the the rooms are in need of a little modernisation and as the title suggests the toilet roll is dreadful cheap tat so best to bring your own for comforts sake!
As a business traveller I also find that the broadband is very expensive (£12.95 for 24hrs) and awfully slow (1mb) and is not acceptable in my opinion.
Still like staying there as the plus points out way the negatives!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soojon Excellent hotel
This hotel is great value with service levels that mean the price will rise. PCR membership is recognised and room upgrades when available are excellent. No hesitation recommending this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by olly Long term stay
I spent 2 years at this hotel usually 4 nights a week.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the hotel.
This was made possible mainly due to the friendliness of the staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jas1 Poor hotel, poor service
From arrival in the car park the hotel looked tired and dismal. The check in was slow and staff seemed completely disinterested. The bar was cold, looked bare and as though no-one ever used it. The terrace similarly. It was a struggle to get service even though it was empty. The room was VERY dull and a really long & difficult trek from reception even though the hotel only had a handful of guests. Did not therefore eat in the hotel at all. On the way to check out found the housekeeping staff folding the "new" clean towels on the corridor FLOOR yes FLOOR before taking them into the room. When highlighted at reception - they did not appear to consider it alarming / cleanliness issue at all and merely stated that they would bring it to the attention of housekeeping when they had time! One to avoid

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chewie007 Well kept secret
Nice hotel, long corridors with stairs part way along. The evening staff were preoccupied amongst themselves. Not used to that. Breakfast was as good as always in a Holiday Inn, No cold meats though which was odd. Lovely setting, Would be fantastic for a summer wedding, out of the way in countryside but within easy car distance of Leeds/Bradford/M62/M621/M606 junction. Would certainly recommend here to anyone visiting the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Grajohn Delegate Room
The hotel is actually very good as are the staff however, I am a Priority Club member and I was allocated a delegate room complete with a fold down bed, I find this unacceptable especially considering that I was charged a full room rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RaeRae Perfect Stay for Our wedding night
My parents booked the room as a reception night treat, after our wedding party.
The hotel was beautiful. It's very clean, the staff were very efficient and welcoming. We stayed in an executive room which was really impressive.
Although basic looking, it was extremely spacious, clean, comfortable...just lovely!
Breakfast was included in the price (which was fantastic also) the food was delicious and there was a fairly good choice to choose from.
Again the staff were very efficient and welcoming.
We really didn't want to leave :-) would deff go back there again.
