The above title is the way this hotel describes itself on publicity and is pretty much spot on. We paid £70 for a Superior Double on a Saturday night for room only. It is possible to pay a bit extra for Continental Breakfast in your room at weekends (£6.50 I believe). A Full English is available Monday to Friday in The Carnegie Cafe-Bar for £7.50. My initial view was the rate was a bit steep for room only.
However, once inside the room you get a magnificent panoramic view of Headingley Cricket Ground. The rooms are used as Corporate Boxes for Test Matches so the awesome view goes without saying.
The bed is the biggest I've ever slept in and was very comfortable (which is a much more important feature). The bathrooms are more compact with a shower rather than a bath tub. The power shower was highly invigorating nevertheless.
There is a good range of TV channels available, tea and coffee facilities and a fridge in the room to store your own refreshments/supplies in.
There is car parking right outside the hotel, a half hourly train service to/from Leeds City Centre from Burley Park station less than half a mile away. We attended a party at The Executive Suite inside the stadium complex so didn't need to venture off site.
However, there are many places to eat and drink within walking distance and a discount for hotel guests is available at the well known Italian restaurant Salvo's on Otley Road.
It's a unique venue without being too far from the centre of Leeds and we enjoyed staying here.
