Great centrally located, clean, good value hotel. Chain hotel so you know excellent what to expect and are rarely disappointed. Free car parking and a decent free breakfast but can get busy and occasionally food runs out / runs low. Breakfast was shockingly bad today and we had

Thank you for your review! We are pleased that you enjoyed Strictly Come Dancing, however, I believe your review may have been miss-posted on our hotel instead of the Holiday Inn at Junction 40. Our team at the Holiday Inn Express Wakefield welcome you to come stay with us and we will accommodate for your every need. We are located right in the centre of Wakefield surrounded by wonderful places to eat, entertainment such as the Theatre Royal, the hop; a real ale pub which has live bands each Friday and Saturday and great shopping areas. Our breakfast is included as is our WiFi, but due to popularity of the restaurants nearby we no longer have an evening menu. Should you decide to take any breakfast items with you, we will do our best to provide you with something to put them in so you can enjoy them later. We have takeaway travel cups also, for when you want to take a tea or coffee with you. Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to your arrival. - Hiex Reception Team!

Had a night away from Nottingham with my husband and at first we were really pleased with the location, then really pleased with the exceptionally friendly and helpful receptionist....sadly though our room was very basic with an awful view of the bins. This wasn't the worst

Nicola M, Reading your nice words on our staff and location is very encouraging. But I'm disappointed at the same time as you only had an average stay due to the issues you encountered with your room. Our aim is to provide a trouble-free experience, and what you described certainly fell short of that. I've shared your review with the hotel, and I'm very positive that they'll take the necessary steps so that similar situations won't occur again. Thank you for being our guest and for choosing to stay with us! We hope to accommodate you again for chance to provide you with a much better experience. Best regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService

May be best to call the hotel. Otherwise there's loads of other places to go locally. including a nice Wetherspoon pub a few minutes walk away.
