Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stevemac Recent Stay 15-19 September
I have recently stayed in the hotel and my first impressions where good. The welcome from the reception staff great Theresa and another on the daytime shift where great. The rooms are not fantastic but clean and the air con works. The breakfast is ok with a good choice and the staff again very helpful. I suppose it went downhill I wasn't given my welcome pack for the hotel with being a IHG member you get the welcoming touch but unfortunately the hotel missed this...
Gym - This where it falls apart it has to be the most uninspiring gym I have ever trained in. Staff are not very welcoming and music is not played. The equipment is out of date hence why it is important for the staff to motivate and have the room a bit more upbeat.
Lastly - Don't have your tv too loud (21 which is not loud otherwise you will be asked to turn your tv down? As after 11pm its sleep time ? REALLY...Oh and if your slightly deaf they don't take your considerations into account? They talk to you rudely and tell you to reduce your volume?
Due to having two not so good weeks at the hotel myself and my two colleagues have decided to stay elsewhere locally. Lets hope the hotel improves the gym and perhaps the attitude of some of the staff.
PS Bar area not very inspiring...I stay regular in holiday inn and I am a platinum member but I might steer clear for a few months...
PPS Thanks to the majority of the wonderful staff at Garforth

Clean well managed Hotel for a business stop over.
Gym is a bonus for the cost of the accommodation.
Food is normal hotel fare. Service is excellent..
Only disappointment was the poor reception on my mobile phone and for the WiFi due to the room location at the centre of the Hotel. But I am sure I could have move had I asked.
Would use this location again.

Only booked for one night and there were notices regarding the refurbishment but our room was not nice and in my opinion should not be used until refurb complete. Obviously had, and I think still having, a water leak as room smelt musty, bathroom ceiling badly stained and small patch of water on the floor under the sink was rusty water; I wiped it away as only small but it was there again in the morning. Only myself and my husband staying but the sofa bed was also made? On the positive side, we had an evening meal in-house as well as breakfast and the food quality was very good, with friendly and attentive staff at both meals. Staff on arrival were professional and friendly too. Will be a good hotel when refurb complete but should take room out of action.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Once a Fan Not to be repeated.
The room was small.
The bed was too small for two adults
The dinner was a disappointment.
The waitress didn't open the wine- so tasting was not a possibility
The first course was minuscule- six pancakes but a tiny portion of duck
The main course was also very disappointing- half a fillet of bream, which tasted of nothing.
We have stayed at other Ho,I day Inns and thought them excellent. This is why we chose this one. But it bore little resemblance to what we are used to I. Norwich and Huildford.
This one lets the side down. We won't assume Holiday inns will provide a high level of accommodation in future. We certainly won't recommend this one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Suehar does the job
I have stayed here many times over the years so I knew what I was getting. The hotel is in dire need of refurbishment which is underway. The room itself was comfortable and even though the bathroom was not great it did the job and was clean. the breakfast is always great. The wireless though was dire and did not seem to work anywhere in the hotel properly. The bar was OK although the range of drinks were not good. The reception was very draughty and the couches were shabby but I think this will be part of the refurb. Overall I would stay there again as in spite of everything it is good value for money and I have stayed at worse hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by melmusic Ideally situated for holiday in Leeds but a bit cramped for 4 in a room
This hotel met all our basic needs for a short family break. The pool was a welcome bonus and the staff there were very helpful and polite. The Bar service was excellent and helfpul. The food in the restaurant was good but it was a shame that 15 mins before the close of breakfast not all the items were there to select from. Also the service at dinner was slow and delays in courses.The Bedroom was adequate but too small really for a family of 4. All the rooms are the same size so I think they should consider making a few FAMILY rooms by knocking 2 into one. It also had not been thoroughly cleaned but when I bought this to their attention they were prompt in resolving it and supplied courtesy drinks which was nice. With a few tweaks this hotel has the potential to be the best for families in the area for the price

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JBCMS MILES away from reception
This hotel is like a rabbit warren - rooms are poorly signposted and ours were up 2 flights of stairs [NO LIFT] and at the far end of a very long corridor
At dinner the staff were more interested in setting up for breakfast than serving us - and the food was disappointing [beef -tough!]
Breakfast was GREAT - staff excellent, as was range and quality of food
Wont be going again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oggylander Comfortable overnight stop
Having stayed in this hotel before I knew the staff would be friendly and efficient and that my wife and I would have a comfortable night. The room, although a little tired and in need of refurbishment, was OK for an overnight stop. Access to free WiFi was welcomed, although it did take very much longer than normal to access it. Two contacts with reception were needed before I could use it. The overall appearance our room, and the corridors and stairs leading to it was not as good as other areas in the hotel and would benefit from some refurbishment. The dining room has been refurbished and, in my opinion, it is a great improvement from the last visit I made. The breakfast was really good with choices to suit all tastes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hoss23 Pleasant stay with no problems at all
My room looked as if it had been recently renovated and was clean and comfy. Got a good nights sleep. Breakfast was tasty with food being placed out in smaller quantities and then replaced regularly. Staff friendly and helpful at both check-in and check-out. Agree with previous reviewers that the overall building itself looks old, but the recent refurbishment has freshened up both the public areas and the bedrooms (or at least the one I stayed in).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Micki2013 Journey break.
I booked this hotel having read other reviews. The staff were great and the breakfast was up to the usual standard but from the decor to the crockery, things are looking a bit tired.
The hotel does need renovating which is being carried out at the moment. Whether that will address such things as excess sound transmission between rooms, I'm not sure. As I rarely travel this way, I'm unlikely to find out!
We did use the Health Center pool, and although small it was nice and clean and we did enjoy the dip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Qunnie Comfortable room, great service, staff very helpful
Hotel was lovely and clean, staff very helpful, evening meal lovely and not expensive the only thing was we never booked in for breakfast when we went down for breakfast we asked how much it was and they said £13.00 each, we thought this was quite expensive so we went into town to the cafe and had 2 full English and 2 mugs of tea for £10.00 so we saved £16.00. Would stay at the hotel again and definitely go back to the cafe

Well i decided to use my points for the first time for myself and wife and kids to go to York for my Birthday. On booking I requested two rooms next to each other 1 for us and 1 for the 3 kids, 17, 15, ad 10. neddless to say we weren't but eagle eyed staff saw the dilema and offered to move us right away...Great. The kids room was a double bed and sofa bed which wasn't made and the matress on the sofa bed was awful. I trundled off to the reception to get get this bed made up and Matress changed whilst we went out for a celebratory Birthday meal. upon our return the sofa bed had not been touched and it was now 9.30, so another trip to reception to report the matter. I have to say the staff are really helpful and friendly but the hotel is a little tired, the floor at the bar area was sticky, the matresses were not of the standard I would expect of a Holiday inn. I don't think I will stay here again I will try Todcaster Road one next. But your staff are brilliant shame the fascilities aren't upto standard.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nickname9999 Dreadful staff
Poor check in, misdirected towards rooms. Rambling up-and-down path to rooms through damp smelling corridors laden with linen trollies. Forty minute wait for food order to be taken. Great sleep in room. Everything worked. Bill incorrect at check out. Points had to be chased via IHG. Pretty dismal overall

This was a return visit to this hotel. Inexpensive, comfortable and in a convenient location for us. Guest rooms currently undergoing refurbishment but work is not too intrusive. Used the pool facilities as we took children with us and they thoroughly enjoyed it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gary1975 Very hungry with only Fly's for company.
I chose to stay in my room to do work so ordered room service which they said would take approx 30 mins, after 40 mins no sign of my food so called down again with no order being placed in the 1st place so all in all waited 1hr 45 mins until I finally got something to eat (22:45).
After eating so late I needed to get some sleep before a busy day the next day only to switch the lights off and be attacked by Fly's, Moths & anything else which had wings, so i really think the room could do with fumigating (128).
Middle of the night came and it was a very warm night so needed a drink of water which 2 bottles were left in the room (executive room !!) which I had earlier put in the mini bar fridge, only to find in the morning that both bottles had the seal broken on them which leaves me to believe that they are re-filled from the tap (why else would the seals be broken).
So all in all, this is the worst IHG Hotel I've stayed in and won't be back.
1 Plus that I have is Rob who sorted my food out in the end who was very apologetic and his customer service skills where 2nd to none, thanks Rob.
