Whilst the hotel building was excellent and really smart the mattress in the room was awful and the breakfast unacceptable. My eggs were raw in the middle and sausages microwaved. After a 30minute wait for my breakfast to arrive, when we were the first and only people in the dining room, we really expected more.

Great stay. Bathroom was perfect. Cleanliness needs more attention, bath had limescale and there was some dust in the room. Overall, great stay.

Nice boutique hotel not ideal for business travel

3 out of 5

Posted Oct 18, 2016
Headlines: Good central location No car parking (local discounts) Noisy, despite partial secondary glazing. Ask for a room overlooking the canel. Friendly front desk staff Quirky rooms, nice interior design Chunky room key that you wouldn't want to carry out with you unless you have a handbag. Uncomfortably hard bed which smelled of the previous sweaty occupier. Very poor wifi speed Nice toiletries Cleanliness could be petty (hair on carpet) Breakfast overpriced (c.£17 in restaurant or £7 for a muffin and coffee to take away). Just a few doors away, left out of the hotel, there's a small local cafe place very good value. Overall, paid £103.50 for a 'Deluxe Double' without breakfast. This wasn't good value especially concerning the room standard. Style over substance.

Not a boutique hotel

The rooms were last decorated in the 80s, the bed is extremely uncomfortable and the room very dirty. The manager is quite the rudest man I have ever met. Oh and there is a sign in the bathroom saying 'this is not drinking water'

Average for the price

The room itself was lovely decorated and quirky looking.. it's also situated in a great location. However the bed was ridiculously uncomfortable and dipped in the middle, it was dusty, numerous hairs in the bathroom and spiders all over the window due to the old barn door (looked nice but full of cobwebs). Staff were nice however I didn't like the fact I had to pay another £50 on arrival "just in case". The free glass of wine helped though! I would come back and recommend it to friends however the mattresses needs changing and a more thorough clean would be useful for how much the room cost.

Historic Character and great location

4 out of 5
by from Hertfordshire
Posted Jul 29, 2016
Pros: The historic character and the central location.
Cons: Carpet looked worn
Location: Great location within walking distance of city centre shops, eating places and attractions. Great day spent at the Royal Armouries.
Enjoyed a three night stay in the heart of Leeds overlooking the River Aire and within easy walking distance of the main shopping districts and the Royal Armories. The hotel was full of character as it was a convertion from a historic riverside building. Lots of exposed beams and slightly quirky rooms. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Room clean but carpet in need of replacement. Good size. Bed comfortable and plenty of hanging space.

Lovely boutique hotel overlooking th canals

4 out of 5
by from london
Posted Jul 13, 2016
Pros: Location, spaciousness, boutique character
Cons: Dressing gown in bathroom needs replacing.
Location: Very central to all the city activities in leeds galleries night life restaurants, brilliant.
I ahd a delightful night at the calls, with three large windows in my room overlooking the canals. The location was great for the city and station, the room was large and all the facilities good. The shower and bath nice and hot water plentiful. Nice soaps and shower gels, and tea in the room was a nice touch, only the dressing gown supplied in my bathroom was frayed and stained and could have done with throwing away and replacing. Otherwise great.
