Been to the mint in Leeds a couple of times and you will not be disappointed. The decor is modern, the staff are attentive and the facilities are very good.
Room - modern room with all the mod cons, in the main this is great however the tv controls are through the imac and this makes the switching between programs. Also you cannot see a tv guide which means you have to flick through the channels to see if there is anything you want to watch.
Gym - The gym is well equipped with running machines, cross trainers and weights. There is water and towels available, just remember you can only get to the gym from the right hand lift.
Food - The breakfast is great and all very tasty. I also had dinner in the Mint and some bits were excellent while others were OK. The risotto starter was pretty tasteless, there was nothing horrible about it but also nothing right. The main course of pork belly was very tasty and also well presented. The only criticism was that the portion size was so small it resembled a starter. This meant I also had to have dessert (which I usually miss) as I was still hungary, and the rhubarb crumble was excellent if again a little small.
Staff - Very helpful and attentive and check in and out was pretty painless
Overall I would definitely return but I hope they sort out one or two minor issues.
