We stayed at the Mint hotel on a Saturday night in April.
We arrived around 10pm and there was no space left in the car park (which is £12 per night) and so we reluctantly agreed to the valet parking (£16 for the night.) Having driven for 5 hours to get to Leeds, I was keen to unwind rather than explore the nearby dark streets and tunnels searching for a more reasonable parking option.
Check in was reasonably fast and we were soon in our room. The room was bright, clean and modern with an imac TV/internet terminal. We were on the canal side which was quiet. The bathroom was clean with a powerful shower.
We ventured upstairs to the bar (which was packed) though a staff member did welcome us and showed us to a table near the windows. We were just too late to go outside onto the terrace, but it looked like a cool place to have a cocktail. We opted for a nice bottle of wine instead (second time lucky as they didn't have the first choice in stock)
A delicious, full cooked breakfast was included in our room rate (though after the parking price we did check with one of the very friendly and helpful staff that this was the case!)
We'd stay here again, but do feel slightly ripped off by the parking which cost 22% of what we paid for the room.
