42 The Calls
Ranked #43 of 87 Hotels in Leeds
Reviewed May 13, 2008

Have stayed here twice in the last couple of months and cannot recommend highly enough. You could almost miss the entrance as it is a small revolving door off "The Calls" squeezed between 2 restaurants. It is a former cornmill and still retains a lot of the original features. From the moment we entered the premises we found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The little touches such as a complimentary glass of wine and honesty bar are just the beginning. The homemade biscuits and fudge in the room were so much nicer than the packets of biscuits you usually get. Our room overlooked the River Aire and was light and airy. The shutters on the windows added to the ambience. The choice of Molton Brown toiletries was luxurious and plentiful. So onto breakfast - my husband loved the fact you could order any 2 sausages from a selection to have with your cooked breakfast. The only point on the downside was that my kedgeree was disappointing - it appeared to be overcooked. However the waiter immediately offered me an alternative and when we checked out later that day we were impressed that they knew and apologised again about breakfast. All in all a really impressive stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we were in Leeds.

I booked a suite for my partners birthday and when we arrived we received a very warm welcome. We had stayed once before in December and the receptionist recognised us. They upgraded us to the Penthouse suite which was amazing. Had a lovely stay and would highly recommend this hotel - the best hotel in Leeds.

What a fantastic hotel, I went for the delux double and it was huge. Very comfortable with a fantastic bathroom and large tv/sound system.
We went out in leeds and upon returning to the hotel the man in the room above had let his bath overflow. Spoke to reception and within 10 minutes were in an even bigger room.
Brilliant service from the staff. Parking is good, as you just hand over your keys and its all sorted for you.
I could go on... Its just a realy good hotel and i will be visiting regulaly.

We booked a King Executive room and on arrival were told we had been upgraded to a junior suite, which was totally unexpected. The receptionist was very polite and friendly and offered us a welcome glass of wine. A very nice porter took us up to our room which was gorgeous! It had a bedroom and a living room and a big bathroom, it was all very clean and cosy too, didn't see any signs of it needing refurbishment. All the staff that we dealt with were really lovely, we would definitely stay here again. Bit expensive but worth it for a special romantic stay.

42 The Calls is less than 10 minutes walk from the excitement of Leeds city centre but at the same time in a peaceful location.

It’s a town-house-hotel overlooking the river, converted from a corn mill in 1991 and a member of the Design Hotels group.

The rooms are quirky, warm and well furnished with personal touches. A standard double has multi-channel TV (Freeview channels), Internet access, DVD and CD player and costs around £89 per night (without breakfast which is £14).

There is a good welcoming service and helpful staff.

Not wheelchair friendly.
Valet parking is available for £10.75 overnight.
Didn’t eat here.
Would I go back? Definitely – it’s an award winning hotel with good reason.

We visited 42 for two nights in October half term - one double and one twin which were next to each other. Both rooms were reasonably furnished (in common with other comments a refurbishment is probably due as carpet a bit stained and curtains not exactly luxurious, but the beds were comfortable and bed linen was in good condition. The bathrooms were well equipped with Molten Brown toiletries and superbly soft towels / robes but tiles and grouting are beginning to look their age). Our rooms were both 'deluxe' which is perhaps stretching it a bit and if we were to stay again we'd opt for a room overlooking the canal as this would reduce the city noise levels. At weekends you can street park at virtually no cost directly outside the hotel door. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious, and an honesty bar in the small sitting area appears to work well (not exactly an honesty bar as a camera constantly zooms in on you!). Service by the staff at breakfast and reception is second to none. Once home the hotel had the decency to ring and asked if we had consumed a bottle of champagne and not paid (we hadn't!), which was a nice touch I thought. Would probably not stay again but only because there are too many hotels in the world to explore!
