“modern hotel close to city centre-could be better”
Reviewed 12 December 2011

We stayed here 9th December 2011 for 2 nights. Hotel was quiet and well decorated in the bar and restaurant but starting to look worn around the corridor areas. It was a close walk to the centre but in business district, so lovely and quiet.
Our room was great. It was decorated nicely with a huge bed, which was incredibly comfortable. There was a coffee machine but a few biscuits wouldn't have gone amiss!
The food in the restaurant was beautiful, it was very quiet and relaxed and I liked the idea of late breakfast on a weekend (11am) and check out wasn't until 12 noon.
A little overpriced, but this hotel could be great.

Room Tip: ask for an upgrade for a quiet night sleep

Loved it! Rooms not masdive but so comfy; fresh milk in the fridge, gorgeous fluffy towels, great bathroom. Proper ironing board and iron. Only negatives: no mobile signal and no biccies!! Location excellent, very friendly and professional staff, great ambience - there was live jazz the night we were there!

I stayed at this hotel on the evening of Friday 2/12/2011. From the moment I arrived the service was personal and attentive. I got a good price for the night (£92.50 for a double room including full breakfast) and it compared favourably to anything else on offer. The hotel itself has been designed to a very high standard with a boutique feel to it. My room was a fab size, with a bed that must have been 7ft wide! As another reviewer has said, the room had a Nespresso coffee maker which was a nice touch and the bathroom was fitted with a full sized bath and fantastic "rain shower" as well a hand held shower. We had a drink in the Gin Bar and the ambience was really lovely, the drinks were a good price (less than £5 for a gin and tonic) which I thought was surprising given the surroundings and usual hotel prices. I didn't hear any noice at all during the night; in fact I was worried about oversleeping as it was so quiet! I really cannot think of anything to criticise; if you are in Leeds and fancy something a little bit different, do try the New Ellington!

Nice hotel, over priced and missing silly items such as biscuits in the rooms.

The staff say that they get so many complaints and management are looking into it! Just provide them and stop the inexpensive offer becoming a cause to write a negative review.

Minimal staff on duty.

Poor room allocation created an unnecessarily noisy night.


FANTASTIC BEDS, and linen

Stayed at this hotel 21and 22 November on a short break deal 2 nights bed & breakfast and evening meal on 1st night.The room was very nice but when we arrived the blind was half up and half down and when I went to pull it up the chain was not attached to the blind so the blind just fell down to the bottom and you couldnt then pull it back up which made the room very dark.I reported this to the reception and was assured it would be fixed for when we got back, it wasnt and the room remaind in semi darkness for the rest of our stay.The room was quiet and we had no road noise at all.The meal we had in the restaurant that was included could have had more choice as there where only 3 starters 3 mains and I think 3 desserts.We ended up having something from the A la Carte menu and paying the difference so did not use the Restaurant on our 2nd night.Breakfast was good on the 1st morning but on our 2nd morning the portion was only half that of the 1st which was not good.We went to make a coffee in the room using the coffee maker only to find that it wouldnt work either and as I had no luck with the blind decided against telling anyone about this and just used the kettle.The hotel is in a quiet location and only a short walk from the train station and the city centre.

This is a fantastic hotel and a real oasis within the city. The service is friendly, efficienct and understated. The rooms are larger than you would expect for a city centre hotel.

This hotel is tucked in a back street which was surprisingly noisey during the night. The check in staff was helpful and friendly and the rooms well equipped but i was disappointed that the blind in the room was broken and the hotel knew about it but still let the room. I had to climb up to pull it down, then it wouldn't go back up. The bed head was really quite grubby and stained and the room felt quite small. When i raised the issues i didnt really think they were taken on board seriously. It just seemed a bit expensive for what you get.
