I booked a good value summer deal with the Mint Hotel for 2 nights in July (£79 per night including breakfast), so was expecting a pleasant hotel stay but didn't have much more expectation than that. I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of the hotel, it's rooms, the restaurant and the staff. The staff were very professional and their service was excellent throughout our entire stay.
Our room located on the 8th floor overlooking the wharf was bright, airy and nicely furnished (request a room on a high floor facing the wharf, rather than the train station).
The bathroom/shower room was spacious and The White Company toiletries are a nice touch. The quality of finishing is to high standard throughout. The bonus of having free WIFi throughout the hotel, plus a Imac computer in each room which allowed you to check email/surf the net, watch television, etc was brilliant, and something which many larger chain hotels should take note of.
The various bars are very nice and reasonably priced for a city centre location. The breakfast choice is excellent, with lots of locally sourced produce being used. We were spoilt for choice. Mint Hotel is really well located - less than 10 mins walk to both the city centre where all the shops and bars are as well as the train station.
Very much aimed at the business traveller but great for weekend's away to Leeds and Yorkshire. I would thoroughly recommend the Mint Hotel.
