The Bells Serviced Apartments
These 6 self-contained apartments have been beautifully restored over the years and are situated in the grounds of Leeds Minster. This vast historical structure offers tremendous views of the riverside walkway and the regenerated riverside wharf. Dating back to the 17th century these serviced apartments are steeped in history, are spacious and have personality aplenty. They’re also a short 5 minute walk from the city centre too, placing you right in the heart Leeds.
DoubleTree by Hilton
Offering you the sophistication that you would expect with the Hilton brand, the DoubleTree in Leeds has a waterfront location, with floor to ceiling windows and stunning views across the city. Like a home away from home this hotel offers its guests a 24-hour fitness room, complimentary wi-fi and is surrounded by a wide variety of restaurants and bars for you to choose from.
42 The Calls
If you’re looking for something different, yet upmarket and incredibly stylish, then the mill conversion turned boutique hotel, 42 The Calls is the perfect place to stay. Bristling with girders, cast iron pillars, beams and many more of the original structures from the mill, this hotel has gone above and beyond to maintain the historic look and feel of the building. With a charming yet robust sense of character about the place, you will also find rooms overlooking the river and only a short walking distance from the most popular bars and restaurants in Leeds.
With 45 ensuite rooms housed inside a terracotta palace, there is nothing to not like about the Quebec hotel. The Grade II listed, the exuberant building is one of the finest hotels in Leeds. Located near to the station, this hotel is the perfect resting place to go off and explore what the city has to offer. This is also one of the four-star hotels situated in Leeds, with rooms that are stylish while also providing a heightened sense of luxury.
Another 4-star hotel, the Dakota is situated directly within the city centre near to the many bars and restaurants. The hotel boasts sophistication and is only a 4-minute walk from Leeds train station, a 6-minute walk from Leeds Art Gallery, and if shopping is what you’re in town for, then you’re in luck as the upscale shops at Victoria Leeds are only a 9-minute walk away!
There are many places to stay in Leeds from well-known hotel chains to smaller B&B’s, and what you choose really does depend on what you’re looking to get out of your trip and the places you would like to visit.
