The rooms are a good size and the bed was nice and comfy for a good nights sleep. The location is perfect for a stay in Leeds too. That only makes it more frustrating that the negative points to this hotel are wholly avoidable but are the things that would make me pick a different hotel next time.
The bathroom needs some tlc, with a broken tap and a shower that's only setting was dribble providing an experience more akin to a Travelodge. On opening the minibar we were greeted by about 1/3 of the expected stock and the previous guest's half drunk bottle of wine. We asked for this to be tidied and restocked as we left for the evening and were told it would be sorted. Of course when we returned about 8 hours later it hadn't been touched.
The ice machine in the corridor was broken too, though ice was quickly provided to the room on request. Letting guests know things like this in advance rather than letting them traipse around the corridors would be simple and helpful. The TV also only had about 2 channels that worked, again only a minor blot but its the small things that add up. We made reception aware during our stay and on check out, they apologised and took details for the manager to call, which so far they have not done. It's all well and good building a beautiful hotel but if you're just going to ignore minor breakages and faults it'll soon become a place to avoid rather than relax in.
