What an amazing hotel! I couldn't fault anything. As soon as I walked in I loved the feel of the place. Very funky decor. The staff were so welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. I was on my own as I was visiting from overseas to visit my daughter who is on exchange at uni in Leeds, so their welcome and thoughtfulness was very much appreciated.
Then the room - wow! Luxurious. I couldn't believe it for such a reasonable rate. Huge comfy bed, plenty of room with a desk and comfy chair. It even had a nespresso machine and trouser press. The bathroom was lovely too - great shower with huge fluffy towels, heated towel rail etc.
I had breakfast at the hotel twice. It was great, the best scrambled eggs I've had since I've been in the UK! They clearly have a great chef as the room service food was outstanding as well as reasonably priced and prompt.
I loved the location in a very quiet street but an easy walk to the centre of town and literally a couple of minutes walk to the train station.
After a weekend away, I returned to find they had given me a free upgrade to an even better room! The staff were also very helpful with travel tips around the region. I am sure it helps that it is a small boutique hotel so the staff get to know you.
If I return to Leeds I would definitely stay there again. I would highly recommend it.
