Jurys Inn Leeds

Day 8. We made quite a late start leaving the hotel at 10.30 am. We walked from the Hotel which was located next to the race course back into the old city centre about 25 minutes away by foot. We entered the city at the "Micklegate" from where we walked up onto the city wall. York is an historic walled city. The wall surrounds much of the old city which can be entered by the various gates. During the day we managed to walk most of the entire length of the ...
... gardens and take a walk down the river. We sat by some ruins and ate fresh strawberries in the sun. Next we walked along the top of the old city wall, enjoying the views and learning about the history of the city. At one of the old towers there was a small museum that we entered and learnt all about King Richard II and the war of roses (the York family vs the Lancasters) and the brutal ...
... Lane Farm the following day. I rode up just to look around and then ride back to town. Barriers we going up all along the route. There was bunting and yellow bicycles galore and every pub seemed to have a "jovial" crowd getting ready for the next day. Although there were people along the route it took quite a bit of imagination to visulaize the projected huge crowds for the following ...
... pub. Here there were stories of ghosts. Rachel thought her straw moved in her glass, i videoed it twice. The video evidence shows there was no movement therefore no ghost. We asked the girls if they wanted to stay the night in the pub.......the answer was NO!
There is one more terrifying story.
When we got back to the car, we had a fine on our car. Unlike Australia though, if you pay within 14days you get it for half price. A bargain ...
... as I could! Hannah and Andy came round for a bit which was lovely and I made the usual curry, not as hot this time!! Then the tunes came on, drinks came out and pool was played :-) another fab night with everyone!
It was this night as well that I decided to let my godparents know I was back. I did want to surprise them too but I'd been back so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jurys Inn Leeds
For a good nightly rate (£70 - room only) I tried this new hotel in Leeds.
Stayed here recently when in Leeds for a night out with friends
Great base for weekend in Leeds
Ideal as a handy base for a weekend in Leeds. Check in was efficient and no problem changing rooms from 3 doubles to three twins. Reception staff very helpful at all times. Hotel spotlessly clean, did not have breakfast, it was 26 pounds per night after all. recomend a 10 minute walk to Weatherspoons on Greek St (more or less), breakfast from 10am to 12am, full breakfast, the works including tea or coffee 3 pounds 60 pence! better than most hotel breakfasts I have had although a bottle of J2O orange was 1 pound. Use this hotel as it was built for, if you want 5 star service etc go to Clarridges but this place is in a super spot opposite the Tetley Brewery around the refubished canal system. Tip Top!!
Nice new hotel, typical new Jurys property
On a one night business stay, reception efficient on both checking in and out. Room standard Jurys fare but spotlessly clean, shower a bit underpowered but still ok. Breakfast improving in standard from previous visits to Jury's Inn's. Overall ok and just a touch above average because of the newness of the hotel.
Stayed for 4 days at the end of May. The Hotel looks good and the room I stayed in although small was comfortable and clean. The location is good (by the water and near to some good bars/restaurants). There is no room service at the Hotel and perhaps this is just as well. The buffet breakfast was small and barely adequate (No fresh tea or coffee-it all comes from a machine). The bar food (did not use the restaurant) was poor and the bar service was slow and incompetant. My wife rang down to reception merely to ask when bar food was available and was put through to 3 different people before someone was able to answer the question ! My advice is to eat and drink elsewhere if you can. The Hotel should in my opinion have concentrated on being a budget option hotel and not attempt to compete on food and service which it clearly can not manage. One other thing- the porter/cleaning staff have a habit of lounging around on the landings -sometimes sitting on the floor-when not busy, which creates a poor impression.
Good affordable enjoyable stay
We stayed two nights over the new year and found the hotel reasonably positioned, with good facilities. The new feel to the hotel assists the clean feel and its modern features were a pleasure. No room service, and not sure how this place with weather after time. However, for us, enjoyable.
Judging from previous reviews, we were disappointed to discover that the "superb shower" was a "normal shower", we couldn´t even manage to get at the right temperature. Furthermore, we could not turn it off. 4 hands were not enough! we reported to reception before going for breakfast and when came back (1h later)...the shower was still running. They did not seem to care very much. It was certainly the only place in the room where it was nice to be, the steam kept it nice and warm, as opposed to the rest of the room. OK, it was snowing outside and we had a room which had one of the walls in glass, floor to ceiling. But even turning the heating to 32 degrees did not help. It wasn't working properly. Here concludes the negative experience. The good side was its location - 5 minutes from fashionable restaurant-grills, the Corn Exchange shops, The Wardrobe, The Playhouse - The buffet breakfast did not make us dance, but it was OK. Tables were not piled up with plates and glasses, which is always nice. I hate messy mornings.
Great Value, Great breakfast, Great room and service!!!
This is a great budget hotel...the self service breakfast is great and is the service!
If you want to have a cheap, but nice break then this is the hotel for you!
The rooms are clean and facilities are ample - hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities etc!
This hotel is central an well worth the visit.
As you walk into the hotel the new shiny feel is delightful, everything is well presented and the staff are very helpful. Check in is smooth and efficient; the staff are friendly and welcoming. The room we eventually got was clean and the double bed we got was excellent quality, if on the slightly small side. We had a good nights sleep and breakfast in the morning was also excellent, I think that maybe continental visitors might be slightly disappointed by the selection but the full English was lovely.
Stayed in jurys Inn for 2 nights in July/August. First impressions were very good, hotel is new ( having only opened the previous February ) and modern looking. The reception area is large and spacious with bar & restaurant adjoining it. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room as on the 9th floor overlooking the river and central Leeds, and was spotless and tastefully decorated and also air conditioned. The bathroom was bright and airy and also spotlessly clean with good towel supply and a superb shower. The hotel is situated on the bank of the Aire just 5 mins stroll to the city centre ( across the milennium footbridge) and forms part of a very impressive new development of offices /shops /apartments which are not yet open. If you are looking for a good quality, centrally located budget hotel I would seriously not look beyond Jurys Inn, especially if like me you get the benefit of a special offer rate ( £29stg per night !!). Wonderful !
