Hotel was fairly central about a £5 taxi from the train station. The staff were friendly and our room was ready 30 minutes before check in time. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom had a large excellent quality shower. Continental breakfast was included in the price and we discovered in the morning this included a limited hot selection... More

This is a small hotel situated away from the centre of Leeds but within easy walking distance and very near to the university. We used it whilst attending a cricket match at Headingley - a short cab ride away or, alternatively, a good 20 minute walk. Very pleasant reception which was welcoming and manned by very polite, engaging and happy... More

Stayed on Saturday as had a 40th birthday bash in the centre of Leeds. Hotel is located on the outskirts of the centre, but it was only a 15 minute walk in so not too bad. Car park is relatively small, so if you don't get a space, not sure where you would park. Incidentally, it's only £6 to park,... More

An average stay in an average hotel- no complaints but very impersonal. The staff, all except one I am sure were robots. I have stayed at better, including other holiday inns to fair to Holiday inns. I will not be rushing back.

I am not sure what this brand is trying to be anymore. At this venue it is best to avoid rooms on 6th floor as they are smelling of stale smoke. My second visit and both times I was offered another room but wouldn't it be simpler just to fix the smell? The venue has a fairly large car park... More

The room was modest but perfectly functional and clean. The bathroom was good and included a large shower. The location is quite central and within walking distance of much of the town centre. The breakfast had only 3 hot dishes, sausages, beans and scrambled egg. The rest was mostly what you'd expect from a continental breakfast. It was fresh and... More

Once we finally managed to understand the road layout we found the hotel easily! Good car park. Nice welcome and nice room. Bed a bit lumpy but fine for the night, we slept well considering on a main road, didn't hear much noise at all. Had a nice drink in the bar after the concert we had attended at First... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a wonderful room. Comfortable bed with a great little sofa to relax. Only downside is that there are no sockets near bed to charge technology. The location is in a student area so not much in the local vicinity; shop opposite was nearly empty and proprietor said it would be closed for summer.

The staff are very courteous and attentive. This is an average hotel/motel, so I wasn't expecting The Ritz, BUT: the "New Look" décor, more form than substance. The electrical sockets are all on one side of the room (opposite the bed(s). This means if you want to put your mobile devices on charge, you can't sit in bed to use... More
