we stayed at this hotel recently. after reading the reviews on here i was a bit weary but some of the people that have reviewed this place do not seem to know what they are on about in my opinion. No restaurants near by apparently? if you would of asked a member of staff you may have found there's a small town center just around the corner filled with little restaurants! the one thing i would say about booking this place is that it is two hotels the wall has been knocked through into the boundary hotel and if you are paying a cheaper price that stated on the website there's a good chance your in there! so just call up if you expect a room like the ones in the pictures

I was asked by the owner to give an honest review for his hotel after staying 1 night. I had booked the hotel through a voucher deal with Groupon. Apparantly Groupon had not given the correct information on their website as to when the deal was for and unfortunately my desired day was not one of the ones the owner had told them it should be for. I however had paid for it and as it was a surprise for my partner, and, part of a bigger plan. You can imagine I was not best pleased when after pre booking the desired room, I was told the offer was not on. However, Mark the owner rang me back after assuring me he would see what he could do. To my delight he had organised the required room , The Renoir for my required day.
We were greeted by him on arrival as he said we would be and given a little history of the hotel and the surrounding area. We booked in and then told where our room was. Maybe as it is a family run hotel it would have been nice to have been shown up to it.
Our room was themed with Renoir pictures and decorated very nicely, appropriate to the age of the hotel and the theme. Beautiful period pieces of furniture and lovely curtains and wallpaper. Large kingsize bed, which was two singles together but I have to say was very comfortable and had a great mattress. Lampshade missing on the wall.
Coffee and tea making facilities with plenty of sugars and even hot chocolate sachet. As it was a double room 2 would have been nice but I am sure another would have been provided if we had asked. A nice bowl of sweets was a nice touch. Great television with good reception. Bathroom was ok. Hot water nice towels. Bath was very wobbly and thin as you stood having a shower.
We decided to eat in house for the evening. On arrival in the bar for 2 free drinks as per voucher we were confronted by a large pool table. Not maybe a large enough room for it. A few men were talking and we felt a little unsure as to where to sit with some privacy. However it wasn't a problem as we retired to the library room which was nicely decorated and very appropriate for the type of themed hotel we were staying in.
After choosing our meal from a large selection, it wasn't very long before it was ready. I chose a lamb shank which I have to say was delicious and my partner had stuffed chicken which he enjoyed thoroughly. Our starters were equally nice. It was the hungarian chef who owned the restaurant and prided himself on some of his own home cooked dishes which maybe we will partake if we stay again. However the restaurant is open to anyone wanting to book a table on an evening. I have to say the seats in the restaurant were not comfortable and the plastic green ivy surrounding us was cheap looking. Some candles might have been a thought on the tables.
After a good nights sleep which was only maybe disrupted by the fact it was far too warm we wet down for the free breakfasts. Nice fresh decor and Mark the manager met us yet again. Breakfast was fine but the coffee was not. A better coffee could easily be served for breakfast. Maybe some serviettes on the tables.
We packed up and descended down the stairs to pay our bill. We had a bottle of wine which at £10.00 we felt was a bit expensive for a simple bottle of wine sold in most supermarkets. £20 for the meal was very good.
After a short conversation with Mark we found he had not long bought the hotel from the previous owner and was in the throws of revamping little by little various areas. Heating was on the agenda and he was aware of the varying temperature. Bringing the heating boilers up to date was his next job. Having just put new televisions in all of the room, all 36 of them was the last update he had done. So little by little I am sure he will bring the hotel more up to date.
Overall it was a very peasant and friendly stay overlooking the Headingley cricket and rugby grounds .
My one and only comment would be to decide which of the 2 hotels he owns, which are attached, he would like to be the upmarket one with themed rooms and maybe couples staying and which is the one used for various workmen staying over a week at a time.
Being in the bar with workmen in their working clothes does not seem to blend with the character and look of the Butlers hotel side of things.
Lovely stay though and very friendly manager and chef.

We checked in quite early in the afternoon which was lovely, and we parked easily in the back. The man at the front desk was very welcoming and said we had the option to choose breakfast or not the next morning, which was great since we were unsure of our schedule. The main door locks at midnight but they give you a security code to get in after a night on the town.

We stayed in the Bronte Room. The room was cute and old fashioned, with wallpaper and lots of photos on the wall. The bed was a bit springy and wobbly but I had a surprisingly good sleep on it. The shower/tub was lackluster, as pressure and heat wasn't very good, but it certainly was good enough for a shower in the morning to get back on the road.

I'd probably do more research next time I traveled into Leeds but the location was fantastic visiting a friend at the University. We walked everywhere along our bar path and ended up at a nightclub that we could walk back from as well.

I have stayed the Butler's hotel for a few days, as I was trying to find permanent accommodation in Leeds. The first thing I noticed was the warmth you feel when you are in the hotel, the small pool-bar room and the restaurant are so warm that they make you feel as if you were at a friend's place! The rooms are descent and not tiny. The bed was big enough and I had a good nightsleep! :) I also had free tea in my room, to feel more comfortable! The toilete and the showers are shared, but were kept clean and in a good condition. The location was good, not in the city centre where it is noisy, but in a more quiet area with regular bus roots to the centre. The owner of the hotel was very very nice and helpful! He gave me information on how to find property agents who would help me find a flat and he even received a letter on my behalf! The food in the restaurant was great value for money: huge proportions, well cooked and delicious!! You can also find a lot of free leaflets at the reception about events, museums etc in Leeds and Yorkshire, which helps you get to know the city better. The staff are nice and friendly. There is also free wifi in the building, which helped me a lot in my research for a flat! I would say that the price of 32 pounds for a room is very reasonable and good value for money! I also get the feeling that the owner is making effort to provide better and better services to the clients, and that is very good! :)
