This morning Emma woke up at 6.30am but we weren't ready to get up yet so I fed her and put her back to bed. Thankfully she went back to sleep until almost 8.00am.
When we woke up again, we decided to get some breakfast but didn't want to spend £15 each on the buffet at the hotel. So we got dressed and walked across the road to a …
Emma woke up at 6.30am this morning which was convenient since we were planning to head off early this morning. After her feed, I had a quick shower and then we went to breakfast.
At Holiday Inn Express hotels breakfast is free so we went to take advantage of it. It was alright, there was a selection of cereals, pastries, hot food as …
So here is our super vague plan for the first few months of travel. The aim is to avoid air travel as much as possible!
7th November - fly into Bangkok, Thailand. Hang out for a few days in the city before spending a relaxing week on the beach near Koh Chang. Then back to Bangkok to hire a card and head north ...
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...
... makes me hungry. After having explored the museum we were all ready for a good meal, so we made for the York Food Festival in the centre of town. We all got hamburgers made from local Yorkshire beef, which was really good. For desert the girls got cookies, but I just had to try one of the giant, super-manly cupcakes.
We retired to the hostel for a quick break, and where we met Susanne who is from Los Angeles. We decided to team up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Leeds
Just stayed at the Crowne Plaza with my wife for our anniversary.
Great weekend in Leeds
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.
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
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!
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
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.
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
"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!
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
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.
