We absolutely loved the Malmaison in Leeds.
We only live about four miles away (!), and I had initially just booked the restaurant for my boyfriends birthday, but thought it would be really nice to stay over (Friday night) and managed to get a room at 3pm on the Friday for £89. Having booked so late I wasn't expecting to get the best room in the hotel, but on opening the door was just so giddy and overjoyed as the room was amazing and very spacious. The beds are very large, and the bathroom did the trick for a lazy pre dinner soak and to indulge on the minibar - pure luxury.
Well, what can I say about dinner. Truly amazing. The restaurant was busy (although not packed) and we felt well and truly fussed over without the waiters/waitresses being intrusive. We also didn't feel rushed at any time and were the last out of the restaurant having spent 3 hours enjoying the culinery delights. Not cheap at £160, but we had the full works including champagne, and would definately return just to experience the restaurant again. The service was first class. You must experience the cheese board - WOW!!
Our evening was made complete by the fact that we were able to chill out in the bar after dinner without worrying about having to get a taxi home, and having a sumptious room to return to.
For those of you who don't know Leeds and want to come to drink, eat and shop, the hotel is in an excellent location at the bottom end of town and is only five minutes away from all of the action.
I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
