Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Leeds Centre
A very nice clean hotel that has most of what you need; nice size rooms,gym, sauna, nice breakfast. The hotel staff are nice and accomodating and helpful. Not too far from the centre of town.
Would recommend it wholeheartedley.
Not bad at all!
Stayed over for one night with my girlfriend and although it's not a spectacular hotel, it was very good for the money.
Room was clean and staff were friendly and very helpful. Location wise it's a great place - very close to all amenities etc.
I'm glad I got a parking space (the last one!) otherwise I would have had to park at the station but I'll definitely stay there again.
I chose this hotel because it was one of the cheapest in central Leeds (on a Friday night). I was not expecting much, but we were amazed by the quality of the hotel. The rooms were larger than normal, everything looked new and clean, and everything worked. The hotel was very quiet for the central location.
I stayed here for one night, and was expecting the usual chain hotel with corresponding 'couldn't care less' service. I was surprised by the standard of the room and the friendliness of the staff. It was the first time in many years that I've actually felt as through the staff, both at the front desk and restaurant, cared how I was and tried to make my stay comfortable.
The room was large and well appointed, and the breakfast was good. All in all a great experience.
Stayed for one night at the weekend, and I thought the Novotel was good value, but I suspect it may be more expensive during the week.
The hotel is brand new, indeed there is quite a lot of building going on in the area. It is nicely, if blandly decorated. The lobby and bar are pleasant, but we did not try the restaurant.
Rooms are smallish, we found evidence of some slack cleaning - carpet was not vacuumed etc. Having said that it was not dirty, and there were no problems otherwise.
I would stay here again if I needed somewhere cheap for the weekend - the location is handy for the city centre, only 5 mins walk.
Good enough at the price
A classic hotel for those on expenses. Have stayed quite a few times. A quality Novotel experience - the same room as if you are in a Novotel in London, Dijon or Vienna. Friendly, helpful staff. Clsoe to town centre and station.
Tidy, clean well sized rooms. Gym etc somewhat minimalist.
Breakfast very good - worth skipping solids the previous night!
Not bad if can't get a room at the Park Plaza
Generic Scandanavian interior lacked personality, but room was clean and well maintained. I wonder how long it will take this hotel to start to look a little scruffy around the edges however, as the fitting out is clearly of the budget Ikea genre.
The bathrooms are pre-fabricated "capsule" bathrooms and are just horrible - clean, but plastic everywhere. The WC was separate from the bathroom however, which was nice.
I had a room service dinner on the evening I stayed here and the food was served promptly, was hot, and of truly excellent quality.
On a trip to Leeds this place had a good location, and I would stay here again if I couldn't get a room at the Park Plaza.
Stayed at the Novotel for 1 week commencing 22/11/04-on business.
Without exception all the staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome. The hotel is clean and modern and very well sitiuated for Leeds town centre and train station( 5 minute walk). I would recommend this hotel.
Another week, another business meeting. Leeds Novotel was booked on my behalf and the Accor group are pretty reliable & this hotel didn't let them down.
Room was comfortable in a modern functional way. Big king sized bed, plus a sofa bed, spotless bathroom and unusually the toilet was in a separate cubicle (this was a bit spartan and could have done with a picture on the wall!)
Fab shower - like a waterfall on a hungover head.
Dinner was excellent. We had private dining, but the food was from the table d'hote menu. Top notch ingredients - seared duck starter - perfect rack of lamb for main. Service was attentive throughout my stay - from reception to passing room-service waiters in corridors.
Room service breakfast was continental only and a bit disappointing.
Very centrally located - would recommend to any visitors to Leeds.
The hotel is new which is in keeping with the "new"Leeds that is growing all around. Location is ideal as you are five minutes walk from the railway station close to all the shops and nightlife. The reception and bar areas are bright and clean with young staff eager to please.
The rooms are clean, functional but slightly dull in decor which was in contrast with rest of the hotel.
The bar downstairs seemed to be a popular meeting place and there were plenty of eating places within a few hundred metres. Breakfast was buffet style and service was brisk, efficient and friendly.

... a couple of episodes of House Rules and went for a walk to fill in the afternoon. Unfortunately I had to head back over to Nikki's so we could go down to the club and coach the juniors for the night. So again, they continued to dribble on about how good England are and how "****" Australia are. Only five kids turned up to training out of both the under 11s and under 13s. It makes it difficult ...
I think I have developed fantastic selective hearing after the last two days watching the Ashes. The amount of dribble that comes out of both Nikki and Barra's mouth is incredible. We were up and out of bed bright and early to get a gym session in before the cricket started. Finally we are back to putting this gym membership to good use by going to the gym more than once a week. Nikki ...
... amusement ride through a mock-up of that settlement, and museum exhibits of battle scarred Viking carcasses, weapons, gold, etc. The kids moved on to their 'Dig' where they had lots of fun excavating pre-set bones and other prizes from a glorified sandbox. Following our Viking immersion, we walked about Old York and ultimately ended up at York Minster Cathedral. Having been somewhat Cathederaled out at this point, I wasn't anticipating too ...
This was Valentine's Day and all the hotels and hostels were fully booked for the night so we ended up staying slightly out of town in a place called Wakefield. We spent the day exploring the city, browsing Europe's largest indoor market and ...
... sure I took at least 50 pictures of it. It was so beautiful and tall. Every inch of it was carved, and I was constantly finding new carvings everywhere I looked. I could have stared at it for hours.
After being awe-struck with the Abbey, we grabbed some lunch at a pub, and explored the rest of York. We found this massive fortress wall that wrapped around the city, and you'd better believe we tried to walk the entire thing! It led us to one side of ...
