“Great on a nice sunny day.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

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.

“Great view to wake up to!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

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.

“Looking tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

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.

“Wonderful day out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Eight of us (plus dog) hired a canal boat for 1 day from Snaygill Boats and what a wonderful experience it was. The boat was ready for us at 9:30 and a friendly staff member gave us a 10 minute instruction and safety brief & ensured the kids had well fitting life vests and off we went. The boat was clean & tidy with on-board fridge, sink and toilet and enough room for us all to sit around the removable table for a picnic lunch. The adults took turns at the controls (some better than others) and soon got used to steering and berthing. The gates were a challenge to start with but soon mastered and we sailed 2 hours West (to the first lock) then back to start & 2 hours East (to a village with a pub) and back by dusk. Our photos & video of this day will be a reminder of an excellent days entertainment for years to come.

“THE BEST ALL-INCLUSIVE BOTEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

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.
