Stayed in this hotel with a large group for a friends birthday.
The hotel has a very lovely reception area with chandeliers and beautiful modern décor. It is open plan to the bar and restaurant and has lots of seating. Reception staff were...okay. Seemed a little grumpy aside from one kind chirpy dark-haired gentleman who I assume was a manager of some sorts; couldn't say a name because very few staff actually wore name badges!!
Upon check in we were told we needed to provide a £30 deposit PER PERSON for our stay as we were a large group. This would have been fine and is totally understandable, however we were not made aware of this when booking, and so with there being 14 of us, amounted to over £300. Ridiculous especially since we didn't know. I questioned this and the young bobbed hair girl on the desk didn't really know what she was talking about and mumbled a little. It was eventually waived for us, but just as a pre-warning to anyone looking to book a group!! Maybe a courteous call from the reception staff when the booking came through, to check we were aware would have been nice - I work on the Front Desk of a hotel myself and this would be the first thing I did!!!! Various other groups around us were also stumped about this too!
The rooms are quite nice for a three star hotel however having a little nosey I found that the cushions on the bed, however of a nice touch, were dirty and had white stains on them...didn't want to even think what it was (!!) and the pillows didn't have pillow protectors and were stained. Yuck.
The bath is very shallow, but an overnight stay meant we only used the shower anyway so not much of an issue. Rooms equipped with nice big modern TV's as well as hair dryer, iron & board, and a kettle.
About a 5/10 minute walk/stagger to the bar scene of Leeds, though worth getting a taxi further into the city to places such as Tiger Tiger and Bah Bar (If that's what it was called!) for a more modern scene.
Very good fun night out and the bar staff at the hotel were very welcoming when we staggered home in the early hours of the morning!! As were the security door staff, just make sure you have your room keys on you so you can get in!!
Breakfast was an extra £10.00 per person for us as we didn't book; one of the best buffet breakfasts I've had. Lots of food range as well as gluten free things on request too!!
Overall, a pretty great stay! On the Saturday we stayed it was very busy with stag/hen do's and parties and we made quite a few friends staying in the hotel; a saviour when you lose people whilst your out and bump into them!! :)
Would return again for the same kind of night out, but wouldn't choose this place as a weekend getaway/family weekend; 1 night only!
