Stayed here in early July. Friendly greeting on arrival. Reception very dingy. Half the building is called The Butler Hotel; the other half is connected and called the Boundary Hotel. We stayed in the Butler Hotel half on the top floor at the front. All exposed woodwork is stained a streaky dark brown; all pipework and radiators are painted dark... More

Oh Dear, another one of these difficult to rate places, it's not really good, but not too bad either. Very aware of the mixed reviews i've booked it anyway, simply because it was very close to where i needed to go. Good things are... plenty of (free) parking space, surprisingly good breakfast, free WiFi and windows do open. Some good... More

I stayed here while working in the area, after reading some reviews I was beginning to regret the booking. However, for my purposes the stay was fine. I was greeted by friendly staff.The hotel is very dated but my room was clean and had everything I required, tea making facilities with a decent sized mug, which is a rare!! shower... More

This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stopped in, its not been updated since the day its was built (pre WW2) its was like stepping back in time. AVOID at all cost.. Its close to the cricket ground so it has one plus but even that benefit is not worth staying here, I didn't believe hotels like... More

We booked this hotel via booking.com, had good reviews and the pictures looked OK. We had just come from Leeds city centre, had actually tried to cancel this booking but they required 48 hour notice so we had to stay really or would have been charged anyway. As soon as we arrived i felt instant regret for booking this..the outside... More

We booked this hotel via Groupon so in fairness it was a "good deal" but in reality it certainly wasn't! We got the Ascot room and how it was called Ascot I do not know. Dirty carpet, a bathroom that stunk and it is in the attic up several flights of rickety stairs. It was that bad that despite driving... More

Not our normal hotel, we usually go for modern and contemporary. this hotel is neither of these but we had a lovely time. We stayed in the Bronte Room and it was like walking back in time with a small four poster and lace curtains, cue dressing table and plenty of pictures on the wall. We went for a drink... More

We booked into The Butler's Hotel by default, having unsuccessfully tried two other hotels in Headingley. I use the term hotel only loosely to describe Butler's because I've never stayed anywhere that so poorly serves of its guests, however undemanding they might be.The location is convenient, close to local amenities, bars and restaurants. If a hotel reception usually sets the... More

Horrible place, very dirty and impolite staff. Showers out of order,1 toilet working on our floor we stayed on. The "clean" towels were thrown on the dirty floor, even our cups in the room were filthy
