We were lucky enough to have sunny weather whilst visiting Leeds for a couple of days and spent a few hours sitting and walking along the canals. Lovely a peaceful watching the canal boats moving up and down through the locks.

We stayed at the Doubletree Hilton for the weekend to see family, and I had a amazing view of the canal. Loved watching the boats from my window! I wish we had actually got to visit it in person though.

The canal is one our major pieces in the history of Leeds and I am afraid its not getting the attention it needs, if it was a building it would be looked after better. The towpaths need attention and there could be better signage to inform people about the canal and locks.

Not cheap but all-inclusive so bear this in mind when you are comparing with just b and b's. Very clean but understandably boutique.Will not suit everyone but excellent hosts and in a lovely part of the country and one can see premiership football and go to "Bank on Dave " , so many reasons for visiting.
