Our room overlooked the river with really interesting view of the surrounding riverside area. The large bed was extremely comfortable, the room was spacious and clean, the wardrobe had an internal light which switched on when the door was opened.
The presentation of the food in the breakfast room [which overlooked the river] was exceptionally good, with cereal in little brown sacks, a large range of fresh fruit, a large range of preserves available [in normal sized jars, not the tiny ones normally provided], the bread was extremely fresh but what I liked most was the freshly cooked scrambled egg and bacon; there was an interesting choice of sausages available but we didn't get around to trying them.
My wife was in Leeds for business. It was her birthday while we were there and I pre-ordered a large bunch of flowers for her when we arrived; the flowers were absolutely gorgeous. My daughter also made a surprise visit to see her and I had asked for cream tea for her when she arrived. Although not normally offered the staff made a special effort to provide one for her. The cream tea was brilliant; fresh scones with plenty of butter, clotted cream and jam [we couldn't it all!]
The staff were friendly, helpful, cheerful and informative.
For anyone who likes a beer there was a riverside Theakstons pub just to the side of the hotel.
The city centre is very close with a large range of restaurants; the railway station about 10 minutes walk away.
