“Bad experience”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Hotel does not fit description on Internet and definitely not 4 Star. Not disabled friendly, steps to entrance which was locked and had to ring to be let in. No lift. Booked twin room, not delivered. Had to unzip single beds push apart and remake. No phone on room to contact reception so had to walk up and down the stairs. Went to ask why no wifi reception was told it was difficult to get in the room that I was in and if I wanted wifi I would have to come downstairs or sit on landing where reception would be better. Was then told that if I was not happy I could leave. Found another hotel Corn Mill Lodge which is fabulous. Staff brilliant.

Stayed with friends at this hotel. Owner extremely helpful and welcomed us on arrival. Room large and clean with very comfortable bed. Staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful giving as much information as they could to all questions. In a quiet area but close to all amenities. Will definitely stay there again. This is the second time we have stayed and this was as pleasant as the first time.

First of all, this is an upmarket boutique guest house not a hotel. I say that because it only offers bed & breakfast and has almost zero other facilities. It also has the look and feel of a guest house. Having said that, it providers a very good service although it does have a few areas it needs to work on. For starters, that perennial bug bare called cleaning. The place is clean(ish) but the attention to detail is lacking. For example, there was dirt on the valance in our bedroom which showed us it had not been changed with the sheets or the dusting didn't extend to the edges of frames, doors, etcetera). The owners are clearly working on improving the place as there is evidence of resent work (the on-suite bathroom clearly only had one coat of paint on the fresh plaster). The breakfast was excellent and they managed to provide Gluten Free bread (we advised them of our dietary requirement when booking).

Room Tip: If you upgrade to a Superior Room, make sure you get a large bed. They initially tried to give us a...

Booked through booking.com when attending the Leeds festival.Exchanged a few emails with hotel regarding advice for getting to leeds festival from hotel and Rachel was extremely helpful and informative. On arrival greeted by owner of the hotel who was also very helpful and welcoming. Very impressed with the hotel, it is a beautiful old house and immaculate. The staff are friendly and efficient and we enjoyed a full English breakfast! We would definitely stay again!! Thankyou to all the staff for a perfect stay :)

Our daughter has just graduated from the University of Leeds and we have visited a fair few times over the last three years. We discovered The Cliff Lawn in her second year when she was living up the road in Hyde Park and it has been perfect for us. Excellent location, very quiet, easy to leave the car free of charge at the B&B and walk into town or up to Headingley (or there are buses) comfortable rooms (not luxury) at reasonable rates, and a good breakfast. Can highly recommend if you don't want or need to stay in a City Centre hotel.

Don't expect a homely family run B&B; this is a large B&B staffed by mainly non-English staff but is well maintained and in generally good nick. Breakfasts are substantial, tasty and worth spending time over.

Our room was an adequate size with newish furniture and adequate storage and hanging space for a weekend stay. Carpets were of modern design throughout the building and looked fairly new.

The bathroom was well equipped and modern with tiled floor and wall finishes.

Bed was small and hard!

Don't expect small talk and local knowledge from the staff. Most appeared to be of southern European or white Asian extraction - competent, attentive but generally not personable or strong on small talk.

All in all a solid and decent base reasonably well located (but not in one of Leeds' best districts).

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are sunny and could get overwarm in the summer.
