We first stayed at the Cliff Lawn Hotel about two years ago when the refurbishments were just getting under way. With another overnight visit to Leeds coming up, we had no hesitation in booking there again and our faith was well-founded.
The hotel is in a great location, especially if you have business at the University which is within easy walking distance. The house and grounds are very attractive and parking is easy in the spacious drive at the front of the hotel.
Arriving quite late in the evening we were made very welcome and it was nice to see the improvements which had been made since our first visit. One of the two doubles we had booked was on the first floor and, although one of the rooms still to be updated, was of a very decent size and still perfectly presentable. Our other room, on the top floor, had been tastefully modernised and while quite compact, was quiet and very comfortable, so we had a good night's sleep.
In the morning, the breakfast staff were very helpful and attentive and the cooked breakfast itself came very promptly and was excellent.
Proprietor Terry Day is charming and extremely accommodating, as is the lovely lady we assume to be Terry's partner. Room rates are very reasonable and give excellent value for money. All-in-all a very comfortable and enjoyable stay - we know where we will be staying as and when we get back to Leeds again.
