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.

Last day in York. We walked along Bishopthorpe Road towards the city. We passed the old Terry's Chocolate factory. This beautiful building is now being turned into offices and flats, the land is being redeveloped for housing and the estate is called The Chocolate Works, rather apt I thought, I wonder if the houses will look like chocolate boxes. We visited York Minster which is the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. It has the ...
... as with other locks onto a tidal stretch to come out with a lot of revs to help with the steering control, save it for the bridges!". I see what he meant, the river is flowing pretty fast, so we are already doing twice the normal cruising speed circa 7/8 knots and there are two big bridges right in front of us. Power is needed to control the boat to make it safely through the arches with cars ...
... a "duck weed" issue on the Selby Canal but were surprised on how much there was and how green it was, it didn't look like there was a canal at all, under the luminous green covering.
Selby is a very pleasant small town and we moored in the basin at the junction with the River Ouse, well placed for our for our early set off time with tide on the way up to York ...
We are on the way again after a week at home. John and Vanessa join us at Lemonroyd Lock by the Marina and we head off on the second stage of our summer trip. First stop is Castleford to fill up with diesel, a simple process you might think, just like filling the car!!
Not quite so easy on the boat.
Two hours later after the chap at the Marina who was ...
... suites to get ready for the big event. Apparently this was a big deal cause we got like an hour and a half to get ready.
Bit of background here- as it was our hotel we were given the nice suites with an amazing view of a canal and a couch and apple tv.
After getting ready we headed up to the sky lounge for drinks and cocktails in "our party clothes". To be honest it really just felt like an opportunity to assess each other... cause of ...
