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 ...

... We made the mistake of each ordering food and were amazed by the side of the portions when they came out! Luckily they gave us a take away box and we saved it for later. After lunch we walked up through the shambles and looked around a local market (purchasing some fresh strawberries and raspberries) before heading up to the York Minster. After snapping a few pictures we went to explore ...

... 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 ...

She was canonised in 1970 by Pope Paul VI along with other martyrs from England.

How lucky are we now, that we can chose what religion we want to belong to and if we want to follow religion at all.

The next story that was one that stuck with me was about a little girl with plague. She lived in a house with her mum and dad and 20 other people. These 20 others died of the plague.

Got up to find it had been raining and did so on and off throughout the day but mostly drizzle and when we were driving. We stopped at a MacDonald's for breakfast on our way out of London heading to Oxford.
As it is Sunday and not a lot of traffic on the road at 8am it was a good day to commence our journey in a new car and a system we are not sure about. Went around 1 roundabout for a second time as ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Leeds

    It put a 'Damp'ner on the weekend

    from

    Just stayed at the Crowne Plaza with my wife for our anniversary.

    Arrived at the hotel, which is on the edge of the city centre, and a reasonable treck to get into town, went to the room, and was surprised by the decor.

    Very 80's, the furniture being a sort of flat packed collection and in Black Ash! Also had a large black leather swivel chair.

    The room smelled damp and had things like the bedside lamp (there was only one) hanging off the wall as a screw fixture was missing. All very 2 1/2 star ish.

    Anyway, deciding to leave the air con on to help make the room smell a little fresher (The windows don't open), we went for a walk into city in the hope that when we returned the room would smell better.

    On return there was a marginal improvement.

    Following showers and preparation for our evening, I noticed the smell even more, and to our horror we realised that the floor by the side and the underneath of the bed was now soaking wet. There was nothing wrong with the shower seal so we could only guess that it was the bath drainage.

    We called the manager only to find that whilst he agreed with us, the hotel was overbooked and we couldnt be moved.

    It must be said however that the staff were apologetic and did all they could, and have offered us recompense.

    Oh yes and beware the car park charge, bit sneaky and pricey, if you have to pay it.

    All in all, the hotel and rooms are begining to look a little tired and is in need of some general small attention to detail maintenance.

    Have definitely stayed at better in Leeds

    Great weekend in Leeds

    from

    Came to Leeds for the weekend to do some shopping and go out. Hotel was well located for city centre, staff really helpful and friendly. To anyone who hasn't been to Leeds it is well worth a visit.

    Hotel has good pool and gym to freshen you up after a night out.

    Fantastic!!

    from

    I just organised my best friends hen party and we stayed at the Crowne Plaza. There was ten of us and the reservations team made it really easy for me to organise. I booked massages and manicures for all, the leisure club was great and we found the jacuzzi and pool very relaxing. We had the most fantastic time and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Inept in Leeds

    from

    The staff were some of the unfirendliest and most inept I have ever come across. Taxis weren't ordered, there was confusion over whether rooms were paid for or not and the general manner of the reception was extremely rude. The 'non-smoking' rooms reeked of cigarette smoke and we ended up in a suite which opened onto someone else's room through interconnecting doors which no-one had considered locking! The fact that this, and the fact that we had a key to their room, posed a serious security threat was laughed at and we were treated like over imaginative paranoids for complaining!

    Super!

    from

    Just wanted to express how happy I was with a recent stay I had at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The staff were really friendly, (something of a rarity in a city centre hotel) the food was really tasty and the leisure facilities were a super surprise. I couldn't believe the amount of choice at breakfast, and my room service meal in the evening was one of the best I've had.

    I was a little dissapointed to learn that the leisure club was fully booked on the Saturday, as I was so looking forward to a massage or a facial - I'll remember to book in advance next time!

    A good time was had by all, and I will definately be visiting again.

    Excellent Service and super Health club

    from

    Just visited Leeds for the weekend and had a great time, hotel staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay a good one. Normally dont have time to visit the pool but glad I made the effort as it was great.

    Great value!

    from

    Booked on the hotels website the day before for 50 for the room + 10 car parking. On arrival we found the hotel and parked with ease, and the room rate in the foyer started at 90! Our room was air conditioned, had 2 bottles of spring water, toiletries, biscuits, a chocolate on the pillows and a mini bar. The bathroom was a little tired, but clean, and the shower was so powerful it nearly washed us away! To top off the value, on checking out the guy on the front desk didn't charge us for car parking.

    Dreadful - one of the worst

    from

    "Never again" would be my first comment! The staff in this hotel think more of their health club members than their guests. Car parking is 10 per night - but the barriers are permanently up and the hotel car parks, access roads and double yellow lined areas are all constantly full. Come on people get a grip - business travellers often want breakfast before 07:00, we want to be able to park without being ripped off, we want room keys that work, we want the correct phone number on your bills and correspondence and service with a smile wouldn't hurt. No wonder Leeds Crowne Plaza is even further down the list than the Holdiay Inn Express!

    4 out of 5!

    from

    I actually stayed here last year and overall was very pleased with my two night stay. The room was fairly basic, but the bath and power shower were great and the complementary biscuits went down a treat. Staff were very friendly but did seem a little inexperienced. The restaurant food was excellent and very good value. The decor of the hotel is very welcoming and we had an afternoon cream tea in the lounge area which I would definately recommend. The pool and gym areas were quiet (in November) but this made it easier to relax. I would stay there again, the only downside being the lack of taxis after 12pm in Leeds makes it difficult to get back (unless or course you like walking!).

    The Good, The Bad & The Erratic

    from

    I have stayed 3 times in the last 3 years, each for a 2 week stretch and on it's good days it is a wonderful place to stay. But beware, some of the staff have not yet grasped customer service and the room service meal quality is quite erratic and overpriced. Room quality and cleanliness varies greatly from day to day and room to room. The location is great and never knowing if you will get a smile or be ignored adds a challenge to each day.
