I recently stayed here on business as I had meetings nearby. It's in a great location, just a few minutes from the M62 and ideal if you don't have to be in the centre of Leeds.
My initial one night booking, via Laterooms, cost me just £79 (inc. breakfast) for a double room; I then had cause to stay a second night and managed to add the second night by calling the hotel's central reservations direct. This shows that, in many cases, 'cheap' hotel sites are not necessarily the best place for a deal as hotels wise up to giving customers what they want - at the right price.
My room was a standard double of a reasonable standard although the MP3 dock didn't work and the bathroom on the small side, although clean. To be honest I've stayed in far better rooms for the money but this isn't bad if you just need a room for business.
A note of caution though - check the football fixtures when you're staying.. I arrived the night Arsenal met Leeds in the FA Cup and this meant that the pub, just off the lobby of the hotel, was packed out with local residents getting the run of the place over paying guests!
One final moan would have to be the room service; the menu is the same as the restaurant and isn't much use if you just want a sandwich so the saving grace is that there's a Starbucks in the lobby.
So on to the positives - the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the location is great if you need to get around Leeds / Bradford and other parts of West and South Yorkshire. There's also a retail park just one junction away with many food-chain outlets to offer choice, if not quality, to the hungry visitor.
In conclusion, this is not a bad hotel but don't expect luxury or frills - just a decent bed for the night.
