“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I've stayed at the Corn Mill Lodge a few times now whilst on business and have found it a very pleasant, good value for money hotel. The staff is quite attentive and not overbearing at all and the ladies at reception are always happy to help (they even booked a follow-up visit on my behalf!)
The restaurant has good choice and, if anything, always packed with what appears to be locals - I've always thought this to be a good sign and has not yet been disappointed...
The only thing on my wishlist is that the quality (speed) of the wireless is improved (only an issue if you are on business). I'll definitely be back if I'm in the area - thanks!

We stayed 3 nights midweek while visiting family in Leeds. The location is a bit outside the city, but there is a bus-stop right outside with buses running into town every 15 min or so. And the price for a couple of dayrider tickets is less than the parking in the city centre.
Checkin was very efficient, and our room & bathroom were large, clean & comfortable. Room rate in the week did not include breakfast, and we did not try it, so cannot comment. The free WiFi worked perfectly. There is no aircon in the room, but we were quite comfortable, despite the warm temperatures.
We had a few (very reasonably priced) drinks from the bar, and sat outside on the pleasant patio to drink them.
We had room 106, which is just above the main entrance and the drinks patio. So we could hear people chatting and the rumble of wheelie cases arriving & departing. That was no problem for us, but if you are troubled by noise, then ask for a room away from the entrance area.

You are right about the buses - every 10 minutes and only about 20 minutes into Leeds centre.

Thank you for your review.

We recently stayed here whilst on a Diamond Holidays break. Diamond Holidays left much to be desired but thankfully our driver and Corn Mill Lodge saved the day and made our break an enjoyable one.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Jamie. It was such a pleasant change to have someone who understood my gluten-free diet and with his suggestions everyday, I felt I could relax and really enjoyed my meals. He was a star!
Our room was on the ground floor near to the reception area and we were concerned as there were two weddings taking place while we were there and we thought we might be kept awake but once we had closed the door of our room, we could hear nothing from these parties.
The hotel must be commended on coping with a Diamond Holiday hiccup that meant we were very late back to the hotel on Sunday evening for our meal and the organised entertainment. Staff were kept on late and as far as we were concerned, everything went well and the day was saved. The entertainment was a bonus that we didn't expect and which everyone in our party enjoyed.
We also liked the sitting area attached to the dining room, such a pleasant space to enjoy a post dinner drink.
My only criticism is that there was no shower gel although plenty of soap was provided.
We would return to this hotel if we wanted to stay in the area again.

We are far enough out of Leeds to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city centre and have the advantage of flood lit, free car parking.

Thank you

A modern building off the ring road in the west of Leeds, the hotel is geared up for the business traveller and numerous coach parties. Our room was very clean and spacious with all the usual trimmings.
We were there for a family wedding and so were well catered for throughout the day and well into the night.
I would just point out that there is no separate guest lounge and if you are not part of a coach or wedding party then expect to wait for your meals and have nowhere to sit apart from your room or outside, as some of our friends discovered, who stayed for the night before.
Breakfast was chaotic what with a coach party leaving and regular guests all trying to eat. We had to set our own table and hunt for things like sugar etc. The food, once we got it, was of a good standard, however big notices announced that fried or poached eggs were not available over the weekend?!?
On the subject of notices, expect some humdingers littered around your room and at various points around the hotel and please do enjoy the unusual wall décor in the corridors...there is an array of ironing boards!?!
All in all we had a pleasant enough stay, but this hotel is not a place to book for a holiday.

We do not have a separate guests lounge but we do offer a seating area adjacent to the bar to enjoy a drink or relax before you dine.

We do have coach parties from time to time but aim to feed everyone at breakfast which is a serve yourself buffet style within 5 minutes.

It is true you would not spend your annual holiday with us as we are not a seaside attraction and do not aim for that business.

We do offer quality 3* accommodation at a reasonable price and the weekend rate does include full English breakfast. Sorry we can not offer fried or poached eggs on a Saturday/Sunday morning owing to the large numbers we have to cater for.

Glad you enjoyed are contemporary art along the corridors Oh I see you noticed the ironing boards which are there for peoples convenience.

Thank you for this review we do always have a good response from guests visiting with coach parties, I think it's possibly because we treat them just the same as other guests staying with us.

I'm sure Jamie will appreciate your comments about his entertaining abilities.

Stayed here 13th to 15th June 2014 on a weekend deal which included Breakfast. Our rooms were very clean, of a good size and included the usual shampoos etc. which are getting to be much rarer nowadays. The beds were comfortable and the bedding crisp and clean. One room was next to the main road, but the traffic noise was hardly audible. There was a flat screen TV of a decent size, free wifi and an internet connection. Each room also had an iron and ironing board!
There was plenty of wardrobe space with a full set of decent hangers.
The included breakfast offered a very acceptable buffet style full English plus a vast array of cold items and coffee, tea, toast etc. representing very good value. Note that boiled eggs are only available on weekday mornings - its scrambled eggs at weekends.
This is the 3rd time that we have used this hotel in preference to the Queens in City Square and we have no hesitation in recommending it.
However, it would benefit from putting the Restaurant menus on show outside of the Restaurant, rather than being available on request from Reception, which seems a silly and inefficient way to drum up any business. If they had been on show, we may have dined in the hotel, rather than finding a fantastic Chinese Restaurant.- Of which you can read more under Jade Garden, Pudsey, Leeds

Room Tip: Some rooms are for smokers, so if you want none smoking, be certain to specify when booking!

Thank you for this detailed review I couldn't have done better myself and I note your comments about the restaurant menu and I'm sure we will be able to put that suggestion in practice.
