I was in Leeds to attend a conference and spent six nights at this hotel in late June - early July 2013. The hotel staff were professional and polite. As I was travelling on my own and paying the 'conference rate', I had expected to be relegated to a pokey room reserved for singletons. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. My room was elegant, spotless and spacious. As my rate included breakfast, I had assumed that I had to eat in the hotel restaurant each morning. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was able to have my breakfast served in my room for a very reasonable three pounds fifty tray charge. As I was on my own and some of the conference sessions did not finish until 7.30pm, I ate a couple of times in the hotel restaurant. The quality of the food and the wine list were another very pleasant surprise. The staff servicing the area were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The location was excellent, as it was walking distance from the university and the train station. My only very minor complaint was that I thought that as the hotel did not appear to have a concierge service, the reception staff needed a little more knowledge in some areas e.g. where the closest pharmacy is and its opening hours. I was told that it didn't open until 9am, when it actually opened that day at 6am and I had severe hayfever and mild asthma and could have sought relief much earlier. However, as stated, this is a very minor issue. If I had thought more carefully about it, I could have used my iPad to find this out. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling for business purposes. I was so impressed, I joined their hotel club.
