“Not quite the city centre...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

Came here with a friend who was on a business trip. The hotel is typical HIX, clean, bright, free wifi and a great shower. Room was really comfy, even with 2 single beds, though, as with most hotels, more plug sockets would have been nice - I normally plug my phone in by my bed at home, I can't believe that I am the only one to do that!

Breakfast was limited, but tasty, we got down about 9.20, for a serving that ends at half past, and there were still plenty of sausages, eggs, and everything else you'd expect.

View was of the car park, was interested to see that every single car, bar one, was white, silver or black - must be rep central!

15-20 minute walk into town, not particularly well sign posted, would question if this is really the city centre! Good place to stay none the less.

Our one night stay was for a wedding in Headingley followed by a city centre reception. The location couldn't have been better. £5 taxi ride to the city centre.

Plenty of car parking, which had been one of our concerns prior to our arrival. Greeted warmly by reception and it was only 11.30am but they obliged us with an early check-in. The room was typically HIEX, clean, well serviced, comfortable. Being an IHG member entitled us to complimentary WiFi and we had no connection problems.

Breakfast was good self-service and the dining room was constantly being cleared by the efficient waiter. Reception staff greeted us each time we came & went.

Couldn't have asked for any more. Yes it's a few minute's drive from town but probably half the price of a fancy hotel with no parking.

A great all rounder which I would definitely use again and recommend to others.

Stayed here Saturday 19th July 2014 as a couple with another couple. Went into Leeds to our favourite restaurant. Good budget hotel, basic but clean, comfortable bed + sofa bed, good shower, nice bar, friendly staff and parking a bargain at £5. Breakfast was ok. Taxi ride not too far or too expensive, I wouldn't recommend walking into Leeds - too far by foot! Would stay again, good for the price.

Thank you for your review and I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay. Depending where you want to be in Leeds City Centre it can sometimes be better to take a taxi; especially as we have very reasonable rates with a local firm. My team on the front desk can help with information, maps, bus times and, of course, arrange taxis for guests.

Thank you

Stayed here over the weekend for a last minute one night stay. Booked at lunchtime, arrived early evening.
Check in was very fast, staff were friendly and polite and gave all info I needed regarding b'fast, restaurant on-site etc.
Room was clean and spacious with a double bed and sofa bed. Overlooked the main road but wasn't noisy and room had a/c if you needed it.
Breakfast in the morning was great, plenty of choice with pastries, cereals, yoghurt and sausage,egg and beans if you wanted a hot breakfast.
Easy to get to from the train station, taxi cost £3 with Amber Taxis but we walked back to station the following morning and only took 15 mins.
5 minutes taxi ride to city centre bars and restaurants, would return in future.

Nice hotel are room was great small gap between door so was letting quite a lot of light in but just covered it in a towel. beds where Cumfy my 12 year old son had a sofa bead but the same size of a double bed the hair dryer did not work but told reception and got a new one straight away. Food was great but thought there would of been a bit more choice in food lots of different teas and drinks. Staff are REALY good and helpful and great to ask for directions. Town is about a 10-15 min walk away. I would go again. I would give it a 4 and a half if I could but 4

When arriving at the room the staff who checked us in (me and my little girl) were very friendly as was the FANTASTIC bar maid who the following night got toys out for my little girl, however, they advertise bar meals without any child's menu so we had to get a takeaway and eat in our room which was ok but we had wanted a nice meal. The breakfast options are limited but fresh. And it must have been a man that designed the room as it's sooo frustrating to find no plug next to any mirror! But... Good to finally have a hotel with a decent hair dryer. Overall it's adverage but comfortable enough and I would stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel and I am pleased you had a comfortable stay. I have noted the point about the children’s menu and would like to advise you also that the small number of rooms that do not have a plug socket next to the mirror will all be altered by the middle of September.

Thank you

Myself and my partner stayed in the holiday in express for the weekend close to city centre but not in the city so night time wasnt loud with the clubs. Excellent customer service couldn't fault the staff or room. Very clean & comfy bed. Included breakfast was delish & a wide range of choice. Thank you so much be returning if come to leeds again.
