42 The Calls
Ranked #43 of 87 Hotels in Leeds
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 1 night and were disappointed. The little touches such as homemade shortbread and glass of wine on arrival are lovely but this is not a boutique hotel. It has potential to be but the rooms are in need of refurbishment and the noise is exceptional! We expected it to be a bit noisy due to the location but it is genuinely awful. Such a shame but because of this we wouldn't recommend or return.

This was our first visit to 42 The Calls. We usually stay in large corporate type hotels, but this time we decided to stay in this boutique hotel overlooking the river Aire in Leeds.

The hotel from the outside doesn't look much, but this should not deter you from trying it. Check in was quick and easy and we were offered wine on arrival before making our way to our room on the second floor. This was a large director room overlooking the river as requested on booking. The room had two easy chairs and a table with plenty of glasses to sample the mini bar!! The bathroom was very spacious and was spotlessly clean with good quality toiletries. The frog soaps are a nice touch and made us smile. There were towelling robes and plenty of towels.

We ate out at Brasserie Forty Four which is next door and so convenient. Incidentally, we can definitely recommend this restaurant. Afterwards we went back to the hotel and found that there is an honesty bar below the lounge area which we sampled! On arrival back in our room after drinks the beds had been turned down and two small boxes of Smarties had been left at the bottom of the bed. Thankfully, our dog hadn't eaten them!

The huge breakfast was delicious with 12 different sausages to choose from with the full English breakfast. This set us up for the rest of the day and we didn't need anything else to eat until the evening.

All in all we had a lovely overnight stay at this hotel and our dog enjoyed his stay too. They even provided a dog bowl with bottled water too!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river Aire as its worth it. Also choose a larger room as its worth pa...

I recently stopped here for two nights, the hotel is lovely and the staff are faultless, unfortunately I can not recommend it, If you want to sleep at night. The hotel is next to a canal crossing bridge it has a bar close by and we heard shouting and loud noise from mid night to around 4.30 am, what a shame, if you book here you must ask for quiet rooms, we were not told about the noise issue until we complained after our first night.

Spotless room, but looking a little tired, very comfortable room, nice linens and toiletries. The hotel is in a nice part of town with good bars and restaurants. Downside is no onsite parking but there is plenty in nearby NCP. Very nice, helpful staff and very nice cooked breakfast

Room Tip: Ask for rooms overlooking the canal

Second visit to 42 the Calls & second review! The place is still great & some tired carpets etc have been tidied up since our last visit. This time we had a superior room & again it was spotless, quirky, comfortable, & lovely. Only downside this time was that it didn't overlook the water & being a bank holiday weekend, the entire student population of Leeds seemed intent on staying out all night, getting very drunk & keeping me awake. As one other reviewer said maybe air conditioning is the answer? Still got a glass of wine on arrival, & staff & atmosphere still great tho!!! Keep it up.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the river probably quietest

I have now stayed here a few times through work and I love it!! From the most comfy beds and pillows to the White company toiletries, not forgetting the best cooked breakfast around!! It has close by parking, bars and restaurants right on the river.....perfect setting! Reasonably priced too!!
