Struggled to find the hotel as it is set back, turns out it was the first building to be built and then the estate expanded in front of it, nice quiet area. River down down the back, which adds to the rustic feel. Reception great service, greeted by Belinda who made check-in fun. Room was more than adequate for the price paid, only staying one night. Decided to try their restaurant, expecting the worse but to lazy to go into town, this time greeted by Belinda in her chef whites, she not only took the order, cooked it perfectly, the food was great, Belinda also serves the food and comes back to check your happy, I have had worse service in 4 star hotels, wow, then she sold me a pudding, sticky toffee pudding with custard and ice cream. Last time I stayed in a Campanile was in France, I think they need to send some of their French staff to learn from Belinda, she really is an ace. The rest of the staff are good, its just Belinda goes the extra mile without having to try.
Went here in Feb 2017 and managed to leave with quite a large case of scabies across my body. Not to mention the broken bed and stains on the carpet... Just spend the extra ten quid and go to a Travelodge, at least they're parasite free.
I was on business in Wakefield for three days and stayed here. It is in the middle of an Industrial estate, and is great value. While the rooms are dated, the staff are friendly and you get good fast wifi if you book through the Campanile website. There is great food at the Cafe Campanile - French style and a good choice. It is the cheapest hotel in Wakefield - and it's not bad! I will stay here again
Have booked without checking Tripadvisor, which was first mistake. The guy at reception and girl at breakfast were both very nice and cordial? My room, 59, smells has signs of water having come down the walls and is underneath what sounds like the boiler, so noisy. Asked if this was the standard room and was told it is but offered another room. This was number 72 and is directly behind number 59 so has a boiler above it. Asked if I could cancel second night and appeared that I could not but they later changed that and refunded my second night. If you look at my many previous reviews you will see that if anything I am over generous with the Stars. Giving this dump even one star Is being way too generous. Was £110 for the two nights including breakfast but the bar come restaurant smells so strongly of chip fat that I ended up eating in a nearby 24hr Starbucks just so I knew the food would be OK. However, the continental breakfast was better than most. Have stayed in several Camponille and was expecting much more and this is little better than a grubby back street boarding house type place. Not sure what the smell is but was like damp and dirty. Unfortunately too late to find somewhere else tonight. If you are foolish enough to think I am being too critical then please come and try yourself...then send me a note telling me I was wrong😀
Just a one night stay while in Wakefield on business. The hotel is very similar to the Super 8's you get in the states - basic but clean and relatively well equipped. Our room had a flat screen tv, comfortable bed; tea/coffee; bathroom with over bath shower. The rooms are in one block and the restaurant in a separate building. We didn't have dinner, just a drink in the bar. Breakfast was ok, nothing special but ok. Its located on a business park backing onto a canal. which makes it sound worse than it is. Really for £35 a night it's excellent value.
Yes this hotel is on an industrial estate yes it did remind us a bit like a Butlins holiday camp but for the price we paid for two nights we were not expecting the ritz, it is cheap and very cheerful would have got a better mark from me if I hadn't been shown to a room with a dirty bathroom which was rectified immediately and we were moved to a different room the gentleman behind reception was mortified and extremely apologetic. Had decent sleep and breakfast was good. On returning in the evening we decided to eat in the restaurant we were greeted by Belinda who was working on her own this woman is a diamond she had a lot of guests to serve and cook for and the standard of service did not slip at all, I heartily recommend the fish and chips they were cooked to perfection, Belinda needs a medal for how well she works under pressure with fantastic results. We will stay again
Hotel in a industrial state hotel shuts at 11 absolutely basic not enough towels and working hair dryer ample parking nice expensive bar hence 3 points because of the receptionist she was professional and friendly Important if paying cash you still need a credit or debit card having 20 as deposit
I booked a room for a Saturday night through booking.com as myself and partner had arranged to visit the Christmas markets in Leeds the following day. All had been confirmed through booking.com stating arrival times and the room type and this had been confirmed 2 weeks prior to arrival. As we had travelled from Gloucester on the day we decided to stop for some food at a restaurant called the red kite approximately 5 minutes from the hotel. The red kite is fantastic and I would recommend to anyone unfortunate enough to stay at the campanile wakefield. As I left the restaurant I was alerted to an email on my phone stating that my booking needed attention and that the room would be cancelled should I not respond within 15 minutes. As soon as I went to amend the details (still within the 15 minutes) I recieved another email stating that the booking had been cancelled. As the hotel was only 5 minutes away I decided to find out what had happened with regards to the random emails ? having located the hotel plonked within a large industrial estate I was already having doubts wether I wanted to stay here. The building itself looks like butlins with a block of rooms across the car park separate to the reception. There was a large gathering of chavvy individuals outside the reception spitting in the floor and swearing fluently. Once inside the reception come social/ kitchen/restaurant area which had a pungent smell of sweat and greasy food I was met by a young girl who was quite friendly. I explained to her about the emails and she called for another lady who came plodding out of the back dressed in chefs whites. I explained to the lady in chefs whites about the emails and she stated that it was in fact herself who had sent the emails as she had noticed a problem with the expiry date on my credit card. The problem being that I had put the expiry as 2020 rather than 2016.Either way the card was still in date. I asked why the lady had not called rather than just cancel the booking and she stated that an email with notice is satisfactory. I then asked for a manager to which she replied quite aggressively that she was the manager. I asked if the room was still available to which she replied no. I then asked to speak to a higher Manager to which she declined stating that she would see if a room could be turned over? which contradicts her earlier response of their was no rooms available. Anyway to conclude .. if your a hooker then yes this place provides a bed and a roof. If your after a decent reasonable hotel go elsewhere.
This place feels as if it was built in the 60s and has barely changed since. I could cope with that, but the room smelled of dogs, was very small, the bed was big but sagged in the middle. The bathroom was very dated, but clean, and the shower was good. If you want to plug a phone in, you'll need to unplug the lamp or the kettle. We had the continental breakfast. The selection of cold meats was two slices of ham, though they did bring more out. The remainder was adequate rather than spectacular. As others have said, it is on an industrial estate, and the bedroom block is separate from reception. The staff were friendly enough, and when I went to ask for more milk to supplement the one sachet of milk left in the room, they provided many. If you want more than 20 minutes wifi you have to pay. This is 2016 - why can't hotels include a basic free wifi package that allows internet browsing and to pick up emails? We needed to extend our stay in Yorkshire. Do what we did and go somewhere else.
Dirty, cold, run down. Arrived after dark which was probably a good thing. Reception smelt of stale fat and cooking. Outside lighting very poor, it was like going to 1960s maisonettes. Is photos of bathroom. Checked out in the morning and paid £20 more for the premium inn.
