I was browsing the website www.hiexpress.co.uk looking for availability in the Leeds area, when I noticed after logging in to the chain's Priority Club Rewards scheme of which I am a member, that the Holiday Inn in Wakefield was available on one of their offers. Using just 5000 reward points would get me a free night at this hotel and I decided this was too good of an offer to turn down.There is more information on Priority Club Rewards on the website, but basically it is free to join and every time you book a room at one of the hotels in the chain you earn points, which you can then redeem for free nights or as part-payment. ~~ Booking ~~ I decided to book a ...Read More

On a recent weekend away visiting the Leeds/York/Wakefield area we spent a night at the Premier Inn, Wakefield South.~~ Location ~~Conveniently situated on the edge of Calder Park on Denby Dale road, the hotel is less than a minute's drive from Junction 39 of the M1. Indeed the hotel is visible from the slip road off the M1 at this junction when travelling south, making it a very handy stop off point to break up a long journey.Wakefield town centre is 3 miles away and Leeds city centre 15 miles away.~~ Changes ~~I have actually visited this hotel several times, however that was when it was in fact a Holiday Inn Express...Read More

Hotel | "The best of the budget hotels"

Express by Holiday Inn have fast became my favourite 'budget' hotel chain over the last few years. In terms of what you get for your money with this chain and also the rewards incentive, I have found them better than the others I have tried.I recently stayed at Express by Holiday Inn, Leeds East, for one night whilst away visiting the York and Wakefield area for a couple of days, but I have also previously stayed at this hotel on another two occasions. It has however, been totally refurbished since my last visit, so I was curious to find out what had changed.~~ Location ~~The hotel is easily accessible from the M62 (Junction 30) and the M1 (Junction 44) ...Read More

Attraction | "Lovely food served at this cosy pub."

On a recent break in East Yorkshire staying at Dacre Lakeside Park, we visited the adjacent village of Brandesburton and this is where we came across this gem of a pub/restaurant, The Dacre Arms.From the outside, The Dacre Arms looks like a traditional country pub with its whitewashed walls. Although situated on the main street, which incidentally is called 'Main Street', there is a large car park to the rear, therefore parking is not a problem. Access to the pub is either via the front street or the rear where the car park is. This is where we entered the pub and I noticed it was suitable for disabled people too.Inside the pub is spacious and looks as though three or four room...Read More

Tantara Woodland Lodges

Hotel | "A relaxing place to stay."

Tantara Woodland Lodges Photo, Yorkshire, England
Quote:
Tantara Woodland is described as a 'stunning development of luxury two storey round log Scandinavian style lodges and contemporary cottages ideal for couples and families alike.'It looks on the website like a small, picturesque park which would be ideal for a totally relaxing break. The lodges each have their own private outdoor hot tub, making them perfect for a romantic getaway. Indeed a hot tub has came to be a requirement of ours when booking a lodge holiday, after first sampling the delights of one of these a few years ago.The park itself is very quiet and located in a woodland glade overlooking Ryedale. What I particularly enjoyed about its location whilst we were there, was th...Read More
