Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Si21 Great service and overall friendly experience.
We have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express' over the UK and have found some of them unable to provide the friendly service that this small but well catered hotel offers.
The staff are attentive to the residents wishes and you feel special with the warm and welcoming nature that they project.
Cleanliness is above reproach and you have all that is required for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JamieJean Locality excellent
More than adequate, although we were hardly there during our two night stay, and did not use tea making facilities or television. Found shower stall design more to our liking, although shower head was barely adequate. Toby next door was superb. The 'complementary' breakfast featured watery orange juice and susages but no bacon.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AW123 Poor breakfast choice
Generally high sugar/fat. Insufficient fresh fruit/nuts/continental style. Not enough space around serving area.
Staff very helpful both reception and dining area
Electric heating in room not very good i.e. cold on arrival then the air is very dry . Radiators with radvalves would be much better.
No heating in bathroom - very cold floor, everywhere has heavy condensation. Extractor fan not working - otherwise very clean and good fittings

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GT50 Good people, nice place, good experience.
We are regulars here - family live just up the road. It always provides a pleasant and comfortable place to stay for a night or two. The rooms work very well. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are generously proportioned with a sofa bed if needed, the "bathroom" doesn't actually have a bath but is well-designed and works well with a great shower cubicle and a cleverly designed toilet/bathroom door.
The breakfast facilities are just right. The bar area from the previous evening neatly converts into an effective dining room in the morning and the choice of self service fruit juices, cereals, hot food and bread/toast/croissants with jams together with a full range of hot drinks enables a quick, convenient and satisfying start to a busy day.
Our experience of the staff has been consistently good. They are friendly, cheerful and helpful and seem to want you to have a pleaasant stay.
Overall it's excellent value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colin24 Easy access to motorway and comfortable
Although on the roundabout of a main road it is a good nights sleep and excellently placed for Leeds and motorway access. There is a pub next door but a choice of a better value pub a short walk up the road for food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FIFI57 very friendly and helpful staff
THE STAFF WHERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL, AND THE BEDS WHERE AMAZINGLY COMFORTABLE. THE CHOICE OF PILLOWS WAS ALSO EXCELLANT. WE ALSO FOUND THE HOTEL WAS VERY CLEAN. THERE WAS ALSO PLENTY OF CHOICE AT BREAKFAST TO SUIT EVERYONE. THE ONLY DOWNFALL WAS IF IT WAS BUSY YOU HAD TO WAIT FOR A TABLE, BUT SAYING THAT AS BREAKFAST AT THE WEEKENDS IS FROM 6.30AM TO 11.00 AM YOU COULD ALWAYS GO BACK TO ROOM AND HAVE A COFFEE UNTIL IT BECAME QUIETER

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobBobbins Great service
Lovely, clean room at a high standard consistent with Holiday Inn Express. Room bit smaller than used to, due to sofa bed, but didn't detract from stay.
Very friendly and helpful staff, who made it a real pleasure to stay there

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GrahamB AVOID ROOM 104
The hotel staff were very good as they were on the 3 previous times we have stayed there. Though this time we had room 104 and it is no smoking room like the rest of the hotel but there is a " SMOKING BENCH" just outside the window and the stank of cigarette smoke when we arrived. We asked to change our room and were told that the hotel was full and no room was available. The hotel had a large party of young oriental tourists who's coaches stopped outside this room both dropping off and collecting there parties, at 8 on Saturday morning they were banging about outside even knocking on the window. When told about this the manager seemed completely disiterested

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by andrewgo excellent staff service and nice clean rooms
stayed for 2 nights in mid August. We are traveling with a lot of luggage and were most appreciative of the reception staff who not only organised a room with easy access but helped us with taking some of the luggage to our room! Breakfast staff were also very friendly and made sure the breakfast room was kept clean and well stocked. a most enjoyable stay

I have now stayed at this hotel a few times and I have to say the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and restful. I always ask for a room at the back of the hotel as it is quiet and cool. Can't really fault the place.

We had a pleasant stay in that hotel, which is quiet, and nicely decorated. Thanks to the curtains the rooms are dark at night, and the staff is very friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jackyp61 Spacious room
Room was in the basement and when we got into the bed the sheets felt damp. On arrival the room was cold and we have had a mini heat wave!!
The staff were helpful and the breakfast had plenty of choice with items being replaced as soon as possible.
All in all I would stay at this location again but not in a basement room

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dez1970 Friendly service
Arrived on the hottest day so far. Receptionist very happy and welcoming. Requested a ground floor room facing car park, got it. Parents staying in room next door also. Perfect. Room very hot and no fans left. Room very clean, well furnished and to a good standard. Breakfasting area a bit compact. We went for breakfast at the busiest time and the area where the breakfast was presented was very compact, lots of bumping and minor spillages. Breakfast excellent as usual with branded names rather than cheaper alternatives like some others, however was still very hot, Air con struggled I think.
Would definitely stay again, just maybe go for breakfast when my parents did 7am!!!!

This is the second time we have broken our journey at Leeds East and find it very convenient as a comfortable nightstop. Nice and clean, comfortable beds and reasonable buffet breakfast at a bargain price. Good parking on site and near a Toby for evening meals.

Very happy with staying here. The only suggestion would be to make the breakfast times later for those who arrive late at night and want to check out later to have a lie-in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave1912 Great Stopover!
We chose this hotel for a Friday stopover on our way to Northumbria and it proved just the ticket!
The staff were very friendly & helpful, arranging for us to check into our room early. This allowed us to jump on the bus into Leeds at the nearby bus stop.
The room was very comfortable & to top it all we had a free buffet breakfast on Saturday morning which set us up for the day. All in all a great quiet nights stay!

A credit to The IHG Brand the staff are great the room clean and tidy
The hotel does not do food except breakfast but has a Toby carvery outside plus a couple of nice pubs down the road.
The hotel seemed to have a few elderly and it was nice to watch the catering staff stop and share a joke pass the time of day with them at breakfast which added to the pleasant experience
