Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Met is one of those properties which is caught in a time wrap. It must have been a glamorous, stylish property once upon a time but has got dated and tired since. You can still get an idea of the old grandeur if you use the majestic stairs. The carpet, wall paper & chandeliers will put you in another age itself. Sadly that's where the grandeur ends. The rooms are spacious but ill designed, ill lighted, dull & deary. The colour scheme is awful, furniture recycled, cheap decorations & lighting....there is simply no match of the rooms with what's outside. TV in my room was so placed that it doesn't face either the bed or the couch (See photo). I guess it was just for show as you can't watch it otherwise. The tea tray was provided below the TV on a movable shelf but there was no power outlet there. To use the kettle carry the tray to the table and use the plug there. Sofa and chair were badly shampooed (see photos). Didn't feel like sitting in it. The bath gown was 100% polyester! Towel hook was hanging loose. The bathtub has been placed very close to the wall making the shower space too narrow. etc etc.

There is a room service menu in the room but it's actually a 'pick-up service', you have to walk down to the restaurant to pick up your own order or pay a 'Tray Charge' every time.

Having said that, the location of the hotel is superb, 5 minute walk from the station, 7 min from the main shopping streets and next door to main dining areas. It's a bit far from the university area though. The check-in was fast, bed was comfortable, linen fresh, bathroom was renovated with good quality accessories. Breakfast was typical english one but with a fresh counter offering a variety of egg preparations.

Stayed here on Saturday evening for one night. The reception area is very impressive as you walk in and we were greeted warmly by the staff. Check in was smooth and we were given a room on the third floor (room 328). We’d booked a superior room and the room we were allocated was very spacious. It had a large comfy bed, two arm chairs and a table. We had a desk area, wardrobe and full length mirror through an archway which led into the large bathroom. The hotel provides luxury toiletries and a hairdryer.

We ate dinner in the hotel that evening, mainly due to the inclement weather. The menu has plenty of options and for a city centre hotel we found it to be very reasonably priced. There were options to have two courses for £15. The food was well presented and tasty.

Breakfast was served in the restaurant. They had the usual cooked options, toast, cereals etc. I believe you can order specific dishes with the waiter but we weren’t given than option, just told to help ourselves.

This hotel is in a great location. A five minute walk to either the train station or the shops, bars and restaurants. It’s spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly and helpful, the only thing that lets it down is the decor. It could do with some serious redecoration and modernisation. If this happens then we’d stay there again.

Hot and tired. These are my memories.
£20 to park my car overnight on top of more than £250 of room charges (rates which were reasonable given the location)
The grandeur of the exterior gave way quickly to a tired interior in desperate need of uplift
The rooms were boiling hot. No sign of A/C and with the external noise incredibly loud, it was a trade off between sleeping hot and staying awake cool
The room key kept on failing - primitive technology
I left quite early. No one in reception or anywhere obvious to request a coffee from.
Just a rubbish hotel masquerading as something of quality.

Staff are nice and location excellent. But much to do

There were some really unfair reviews. We had a comfortable 3 day stay in this rather grand building, and the online 3+ day IHG member offer was good value. We were greeted on arrival so warmly by Agnes at reception, in fact all staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is really central, walking distance to the museum, shops, market and business area. Parking could be a problem, expensive and limited on site, so you may have to book somewhere else ahead. Breakfast was ample, with a choice of juices, fruits , cereal which didn't run out. There are hot items in a buffet when busy, and hot breakfast cooked to order on quieter days.

I'd still give it 5 stars, because we enjoyed our stay, although not everything was silver-lined - The lift was awaiting repair, luckily our room was on the first floor. Our room (superior king) was really spacious, high ceilings, big bathroom with a bathtub that filled quickly (it had a couple of small chips, if you really needed to know) and good water pressure for the shower. In fact the water pressure from the washbasin was so high that it splashed us a couple of times before we knew better. Nice toiletries too. People complained about noises, but from the street traffic it felt like a hum and we slept well. You can faintly hear other residents but not serious.

We stayed in room 601 on the top floor as we had heard it’s a noisy hotel so asked for a quiet place. The room was really spacious and had two beds. The facilities are a bit basic however and it’s looking tired. Location is good and we managed to park at a cost of 20.00. Spaces are limited and it is a tight space so no big cars! Breakfast was good but the only real question I had was why would you hire the place out on a Sunday to a local church who is playing like really loud disco type music. No issues on the church front but it was far to loud and made for a rushed breakfast as it was just so out of place and felt a bit awkward as you walked through the lobby to see it all out looking like an event such as wedding fair! They told me it’s always here but often less noise. All the same it was a bit off putting when on a Sunday you want a bit of peace for the morning. Time was 10.30. Oh nice central lobby though

We paid over £200 to stay at this hotel for a concert we attended.
We purposely booked a “superior king” and paid £15pp for breakfast.
Everything about this stay was disappointing.
The room was very small, the king bed was two single beds pushed together, there were no extra amenities as promised; no robes, no slippers, no upgraded toiletries.
When asked to change the room, they only had one other left, we went to see this room and it was even worse than the original!
The biscuits by the coffee tray were crushed to pieces, it was full of dust and literally 1 plug socket available to charge your phone near the bathroom!
I’ve stayed in several city centre hotels for a similar price and expect a decent standard for £200 for 1 night.
Will not be staying here again, nor recommending to anyone.

Stayed on a Friday night and I was not only welcomed by all the staff I encountered but felt valued, from the lady on Check in (Think she was called Chiselle) to the waiter in the Bar with a north east accent to the room service attendant who helped me with per-curing an extra fan and Austin who kindly arranged for some fresh milk for my I’m room hospitality tray.

All the staff were extremely friendly and interacted in real conversations and not just cooperate scripts.

The hotel is very central but just tucked away from the noise of the city. Steps away from the business and shopping district and 3 mins walk from Leeds station.

I found the hotel charming with an old world style. The public areas on the ground floor are lovely and still have the charm of the original period with updated facilities and features. The rooms are quirky and not your standard box fit construction. They’ve had to work with the layout of the 1900 original building so there are some uneven floor boards but this adds to its authenticity.

My room was an odd shape andI slept really well if you want your tech savvy touches this maybe not the place for you. The place oozes charm and the original grand staircase is amazing along with the red brick baroque style architecture.

I believe the hotel may be flagged under the hotel indigo brand and it’s likely that the rooms maybe brought in line with the ethos of the brand and reflected in the rates, so sample it before the price hikes.

If you like good service and an era of time gone by with all the facilities you need for a pleasant stay I would certainly recommend the Met!

Kudos and hat tip to all the team!

Nice hotel, very grand looking on the outside and inside, although rooms are very dated. Shower didn’t work for us but that never bothered us as we coincidently bought bath bombs the afternoon before.

All the day time staff were very friendly and I have a sneaky suspicion we were upgraded because our room was much much larger than expected. Beds comfy and the white company toiletries a huge plus. Location was really ideal for us too as it was close to the restaurants and clubs we wanted.

Would probably stay again.

Have to agree with some reviews previously written. Hotel staff lovely, food nice enough. Well placed, central hotel. My room felt tired and TV choice basic channels like in the 1980s. Thursday night fine. Friday night spoilt by the hotels own disco going on until 1215 - earplugs provided suggest its because its a city hotel but it is internal noise which reaches the second floor 12.30 now and have to get up for work again in the am. Would recommend the hotel consider secondary glazing and their internal customers a little more!

I booked the Hotel for my sister's 60th Birthday. Firstly the Hotel is Fabulous, the architectural is outstanding. The staff are really friendly, Ben on reception couldn't do enough for us, lovely lad. Massive pat on the back to all the cleaning staff, it was absolutely spotless, I am very particular and couldn't find any fault. When we got in the room there was a lovely display of cake and chocolate on a plate saying Happy Birthday, which was extremely thoughtful and made my sister feel VERY Special.

We went down for breakfast at 10.30 Sunday morning, starving - there were lots of choice all nicely displayed. We ordered the full English and that was my only complaint, which was a shame. The actual produce was outstanding, however, it was the way it had been cooked which let it down. Most of it appeared to have been cooked in a deep fat fryer, and tipped on the plate, because the plate was swimming in grease. the sausages were under cooked and the eggs both fried and poached were like bullets. It would not stop us from going back or recommending the Hotel to anyone else, but a good Chef in there would make it PERFECT.

Sorry for the late reply, but if you are visiting Leeds, many of the city centre pubs are expensive with beer at £6 a pint. There is a Wetherspoons next to the station that is considerably cheaper.

Answer from GlennA946
Whitehaven, United Kingdom258 contributions77 helpful votes
Parking is expensive in Leeds, but the nearest car park will be at Leeds City station. This is pricey, I think my manager paid £ 8 for five hours, but probably the only place you are guaranteed a parking space.
