As far as hotel chains go, you could do a lot worse than choosing the Malmaison / Hotel Du Vin chain. They always offer exactly what I look for in a hotel and my most recent visit to Mal, Leeds was no exception.
Tasteful and modern with a classic design twist, the guest rooms are as aesthetically pleasing and attractive as the public areas are, though public areas such as the lobby are generally a tad more theatrical. There was a flat screen TV and DVD player in the room which was large and spotlessly clean. The bed was also very large and extremely comfortable, there was an extensive pillow menu, in-room internet access, a nice sized bathroom with great complimentary toiletries, room service was fast, tasty and decent value (for a hotel!) …everything you could possibly need or want and I really can’t think of anything to complain about!
Whilst the Brassiere downstairs is not the best place I have ever eaten at, the food was reasonably priced and the menu gave adequate choices. A nice touch was the new seasonal menu options they offer and although the bar area was very busy and rowdy (Saturday night), the dining area was quiet and we dined in relative seclusion. The waiter service was good, and he was helpful and knowledgeable in assisting us to make our meal and wine choices.
Service at Malmaison Leeds is always efficient first and friendly second. It would be nice if they did pull out the stops a little more on the customer service side and tried to make you feel at least a little special; smiley, friendly banter never fails to win me over it must be said.
In my opinion, Malmaison Leeds is the ideal place to choose if you want to treat yourself to a special night or weekend away and I will definitely book to stay there again in the future and have no hesitation in recommending it.
