Conveniet location, surprisingly quiet and restful
Posted Jun 26, 2016
I took this hotel for a few nights as a convenient location for nearby family reunion and easy access for visitors. Yes, the rooms are a bit jaded and faded (and one of those had a vast empty space where a desk or sofa could/should have been), especially in the bathroom. But it was clean, serviced when asked, and the staff were friendly and welcoming. WiFi was good, except the need to log in every single time I used it. Eating options at the service station are ok: Subway, 2 Starbucks, burgers and a 'corner shop' open all hours. Best thing was how surprisingly quiet it was: plant of greenery and birdsong out the back window, and I was able to go for an early morning walk (with jet-lag) over the M62 and along a country/suburban lane into Cleckheaton, which was a refreshing way to start each day.
