Holiday Inn Leeds – Wakefield M1 J40 – Hotel Review

Holiday Inn Leeds – Wakefield – Queen’s Drive Ossett, Wakefield, WF5 9BE…is a 3-star hotel for business and leisure with meeting/event rooms available for holding conferences, board meeting and private functions. The majority of bedrooms are spread over three floors with interconnecting corridors served by a few stairs up and down and a lift. Location: Situated close to M1, Jct.40, so a little too close to Leeds to be pulling in the punters if that’s the end destination perhaps, but is ideal for those driving up the M1 from the South as this provides an overnight break from the travelling which involves a longer journey to any ongoing Yorkshire destination, and beyond. For horse and greyhound racing enthusiasts for example, Wetherby racecourse is situated 26 miles to the North and The Kinsley Greyhound Stadium is South East of Wakefield, approximately 10 miles away from the hotel. Ideal too for business meetings being so close to the Motorway and with Wakefield Westgate train station being just 2.3 miles away and Wakefield City Centre itself under 3 …
