We have previously stayed in the Malmaison Birmingham and when we got into our room in Leeds we were a bit disapointed, the bed seemed small even though we were promised a Queen sized bed. We complained that was not what we had booked but they moved us.. to another room which was exactly the same! I guess its the thought that counts!!

The staff were very friendly and accomodating.

The food was delicious although the service was very poor at breakfast time.

stayed here for one night, when out in leeds. Great location, in quiet area of the town but also in the centre! - car park large 5 storey one just opposite( expensive).

service good, food good, stacked fat chips! - room dark brown modern, but looked expensive, clean and tidy.

this hotel has a very french feel and is also very trendy.

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel to watch the England v South Africa Test. Room was on the fourth floor which was extremely quiet, and with the addition of the comfortable beds, gave us a great night's sleep on both nights.

The room was spacious enough with fluffy towels, a flat screen t.v., large wardrobe, bath with shower overhead and decent toiletries. It could have done with the furniture and bathroom being cleaned a bit better e.g. some mould on the bath and marks on the upholstery but apart from that it was good.

We ate in the restaurant on the first night. The food was ok, as was breakfast the next day though expect to wait for a table at breakfast if you eat at peak time as the brasserie is quite small.

The staff are extremely friendly, something that is becoming increasingly uncommon in UK hotels. They couldn't do enough to help and even offered to walk us up to a bar in Leeds that we were having trouble finding.

All in all it was a great weekend and we'd most certainly go back to the Mal next time we're in Leeds.

I booked the special weekend deal of B&B for £119 as a treat for my girlfriends 30th.
She knew nothing of it until the day and she was thrilled to bits and we weren't disappointed.
Now niether of us are big hotel stayers but this was a great hotel with great rooms.
The hotel & rooms were spotless and furnished to the highest standard in deep purples, reds etc...
The bed was without doubt the most comfortable bed we'd both ever slept in, and we got up early at 9am for our full english brecky which was yummy and then afterwards went back to bed until 11.40, as check out was at 12. Which is just what you need after a night in Leeds and not getting in until 3am!
Overall I would recommend this hotel to everyone except maybe families.
Can't wait until another birthday comes around!
Even if I do live 5 miles out of Leeds! he-he

We stayed at the hotel for the wine and dine package on a Sunday to Monday. The £99.00 offer is a great deal. The hotel has a lovely ambiance with candles and tea lights that light your way down the stairs to the lift. Our room was spotless and we loved the style of it. We had a lovely three course meal with wine and the service was the best. We did buy water and a bottle of wine which was extra but that was fine as it was my birthday and we also have our 20th wedding anniversary this year. The buffet breakfast was set out beautiful and and the cooked breakfast was cooked to perfection. We had a beautiful time at a beautiful hotel and we will do it again!

I was going to start this review with how difficult it was to find but as I parked up in Leeds to tell my partner I was lost I actually found I was outside the hotel. The car park is a bit further up the road but I was able to park outside the hotel unload my bags and check in before moving the car which was handy.

Location is fairly central and you get the benefit of views over the canal or even go for a stroll and watch the swans and cygnets.

Like the earlier contributor we also had room 409, which is very nice but down some dark and eerie corridors.

Lovely bath, excellent shower, could have done with a few more towels though.

Neither the internet nor the air conditioning worked, luckily the windows opened.

We didn’t eat or drink there so can't comment but there are plenty of places nearby to try.

Stayed here with a friend for just one night and thought it absolutely fine. I booked a superior room with twin beds and on entering found the room to be spacious and very light. It had a lovely high ceiling and two tall windows, of which one opened. The bathroom was small and had these insane little black and white tiles on the floor which made me a bit queasy the next day, (probably due to visiting too many bars....). The shower was powerful and I liked the fact that you could take the toiletries away with you, especially as they were pretty decent! The beds were comfortable and the pillows soft and fluffy, as you'd expect from the group that has the Hotel du Vin as it's sister hotels. The front desk staff were helpful and charming, quickly getting to us even though there was a throng of women "hens" clucking around. The bar was dark but we liked it and it seemed to be popular before we went out and when we got back around 2am! We didn't eat in the restaurant but it was busy which must say something.
It's an easy 7 minute walk to Harvey Nichols and the Victoria Quarter for shopping but also has a large number of bars within easy walking distance too.
All in all I would definitely stay here again.
If I could face going out in Leeds for a night again that is!!
