“pleasant budget hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2010

Dont expect luxuries at this price, and you wont be disappointed. But they get the main things right, room was clean, bath had plenty of hot water, and bed and breakfast both fulfilled the needs as well. Reception staff I met were both very friendly.
Wasnt disturbed at all by noise, but this was midweek, and I was at the end of a corridor, so that might explain it.

Only downside, not that I needed it, but couldnt find the remote for the TV at all, but otherwise...

Stayed in this hotel for one night on a work trip to Yorkshire (Leeds, countryside, Leeds) in November 2010. I had the need to catch a train the following morning, so I was happy with the found deal . By the location and price it was a perfect location next to the railway station in the city centre.
Room was small, but clean. Bathroom ok. No wireless internet available unfortunately, but the reception person let me use their computer to send some work e-mails (for a fee, of course). Bought a voucher for the buffet breakfast for the morning, but was disappointed in the content. So I recommend eating the breakfast elsewhere.
For the location and price I could imagine staying in Discovery Inn again.

Stayed for 1 night when Leeds Utd were playing a home game in Elland Road. Hotel centrally located across road from train station, next door to nice pubs and plenty of eating options available locally.Hotel room was located through numerous doors and corridors, up stairs, down stairs and through more doors to what seems an older musky smelling part of the building.Room was dated but clean, television had no remote, very little spare bedclothes and bathroom window had a broken fanlight that made bathroom very cold.
If you want a cheap no frills stay in central location, can put up with musky smelling corridors and cold bathrooms then do stay here.Bedroom was clean ,sleep was good and yes I probably would stay here again.

we travelled to leeds to celebrate a friends birthday and wanting somewhere cheap and cheerful to stay we opted for discovery as it was close to town. we arrived at the hotel and i was pleasenty suprised at how clean it seemed to be as we entered the lift to go to reception. we had 3 rooms booked ( all of which were on different floors ) as we walked to the the the first room to drop some bags of the smell of urine soon became appparent. having dropped the bags off we got back into the lift to find our 2nd room. back down to floor one! after traveling all day we wanted to have a shower and freshen up before we hit the town. no such luck. the shower had come away from the wall!!!! no problem you may think just have a bath..... it was coverd in brown stains and looked like it had never been cleaned. the bathroom window wouldnt shut and had mould and i dont no what else growing around it then the toilet wouldnt flush!! in the bedroom the sockets were hanging off the walls. and the walls were covered it stains. the lamps were all wonky, i made me nervous to switch them on. having eventually managed to get ready we had a great night out. cant say the sleep was great though. very noisey and the beds were very uncomfortable!! we only had thin sheets as covers. having get up early in the morning ( i didnt want to be in that bed one second longer ) i had to go up 3 floors to our friends room to use thier shower. not ideal!!!! 8 of us stayed in the hotel that night at a price of £25 a person. definatly not worth it!! will not be returning EVER.

I booked this hotel for £38 for a double room so I knew this was a budget hotel but was still disappointed. I was half expecting what I got but cheap and near the station were my priorities. The positives are the excellent location near the railway station, cheap continental breakfast at £3.75 and the cheap rate for my room . The bed and shower were ok and I had a decent night's sleep. The staff were fairly helpful too when I needed directions in Leeds.

The real downside is that this hotel is really tired. It looks tired from the outside and it doesn't get better when you reach your room. My room was inward facing and the view was one of delapidated buildings, rusty barbed wire and bins full of water. There were stain marks on the ceiling ( presumably damp), what looked like tea and coffee splashes on the walls that couln't have been painted for 20 years, damp marks and cracks in ceiling above the shower and a broken toliet lid. There was also a stale and smoky smell in the room. The dirty walls and poorly maintained rooms are unacceptable at any price range.

This hotel might be ok for backpackers or people who are desperate to be close to the railway station but I would not return. I definitely would not bring my family here and feel particular sympathy for those who paid far more than I did. I am no fan of the corporate world but the budget name corporates ( you know who they are! ) do generally provide clean rooms and reliable standards.

This hotel could be greatly improved with some routine maintenance that would not cost huge sums of money. A few coats of paint would be a decent start!
