      Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Leeds

      The management were superb

      from

      This hotel is very nice, however the rooms are not all perfect. We stayed here a couple of weeks ago, celebrating a birthday.

      The room we were originally allocated was art deco but we changed to a high tech room. We paid an extra 35 for a business class room, in order to get movies, breakfast and use of the health club included.

      The first room we saw was nice, but one sheet had a hole in it and the decor was quite damaged (which for a fairly new hotel was not acceptable).

      We eventually changed rooms to the high tech room shown on the official hotel page - don't be fooled, not all high tech rooms are as big as this. This room is a corner one, with a separate lounge area. This was the forth room we looked at and decided to stick with it. I am a particularly fussy consumer and I have to say the management were the most helpful and accommodating I have ever spoken with.

      The motto of the Radisson is something along the lines of "If you have a problem, tell us. If we can't fix it, you don't pay. This was certainly the case; I felt the management had genuine concern for our enjoyment during our stay. We were treated very well, which ensured that we will go back again, as we know that any problems will be resolved effectively.

      The buffet breakfast was nice and the hotel itself is very well looked after. The health club is upstairs, separate from the hotel, it is nothing special, but is a nice place to relax.

      Please note, high tech rooms do not have a plasma tv or a playstation, as is described by one reviewer.

      Amazing

      from

      I booked this hotel directly through the hotels website a got a great deal for the bank holiday weekend. I phoned them nearer the date and tried to request a high-tech room and although they couldn't guarantee this we ended up with one. The room was very modern and had a lovely bathroom with a fabulous power shower. Had a great time and I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for comfort, style, friendly staff and a central location.

      Clean & modern hotel, great location

      from

      Spent a weekend at the Radisson at the end of July 2004. Great location, right in the centre of town, but unlike other city centre hotels I've stayed in I wasn't kept awake by traffic or street noise all night. The reason for this was probably that we had an internal room - there are 2 large windows, but these overlook an internal courtyard rather than the street. Meant the room didn't get much natural light, but at least I could get a decent night's sleep!

      Room was quite small, but still space for a desk, proper wardrobe etc, and very clean & modern. Same can be said of the bathroom - not huge, but there was a bath with a good shower over it. Would definitely go back.

      This hotel has the most fabulous location. Shopping, restaurants, bars and clubs are all at hand.

      The rooms are beautiful, and the staff could not be more friendly or efficient.

      I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in the heart of Leeds. Over the past 5 years i have visited Leeds many times, and i would say that this hotel is the best i have stayed in by far.

      I shall be returning.

      Only one thing to point out, if you want a room with a bath in, ask not to be put in a hi-tech room as they don't have a bath (but have a playstation2 and fab power shower to make up for it!!!!)

      Fantastic

      from

      Great place to stay. Rooms fabulous, location fabulous. Only fell down on the breakfast, it is buffet style and the cooked items are not kept very warm if you are a late riser. At 10.30am it was lukewarm but still very tasty after a night on the tiles.

      Fabulous Hotel

      from

      We've just completed our 6th stay in the Radisson SAS Leeds over the last 12 months, and again the hotel proves to be one of the best we've ever stayed in. The hotel is absolutely superb, with spacious well-equipped rooms, which are beautifully decorated. The staff continue to be ultra friendly and extremely efficient. On 2 occasions they have upgraded us to a Business Class room for no extra charge. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Leeds.

      Snooty Staff

      from

      Tried to book conference rooms - met with inflexible staff member- completely unhelpful and unmoved - the least she could do was make an attempt. Very unimpressed with her lack of accommodation for our situation.

      Excellent

      from

      Great hotel - one of the best business places I have been to in England. Large rooms, superb bathroom (no bath though!) interesting toiletries, good TV. Didn't see much of the rest of the hotel but room service food good.

      A real success and a credit to the north (and I'm a northerner!) Show the SE how to run a hotel!

      High quality hotel in centre

      from

      This new hotel has an excellent location in the centre of Leeds. The public areas are impressive and the rooms are top notch. Service is very responsive. Can't find anything to fault but be sure to ask for an interior room as the street noise can be loud at night.

      Great new addition to Leeds

      from

      Hotel in great location - step out of hotel and into the Light Centre which is undercover shops, restaurant, cinema complex etc.

      Rooms had lovely art deco design with interesting mirrors in different coloured glass on walls and behind bed. Very cosy and comfortable.

      Bathroom was good with lovely unusual toiletries. Breakfast taken Japanese style in the lounge/bar area. Huge choice and very good.

      Lovely lounge area - great feeling of luxury at a good price.

      ... not appear dripping from any of them :( we also visited Bakewell to sample a Bakewell pudding (yes it's different from a Bakewell tart).
      Today we said goodbye to our wonderful hosts and drove into York to catch the train back to London. The Viking museum of Jorvik is fascinating and the 'Shambles' is unbelievably quaint and cute.
      Tomorrow I get to experience the great British railway system up close and we will be visiting Kings Cross station and Platform nine and three quarters ...

The trip took in a short stay for a roadside spice presentation, a visit to the Annandale Falls, the Crater Lake and then St Frederick's Fort before calling in St The Great Anse beach. We returned today the ship at about 1pm or thereabouts, had lunch in the Waterside restaurant then chilled out on the sun deck for an hour or ...

      Last day in London so wake up, ****, shower and shave. Had enough breakfast to feed a small family, then Tina and I headed to the airport to pick up the hire car. Now I never was one to have car posters on the wall as a kid and even now see them as being a means to an end. But not today ...

      Last day in York

      A travel blog entry by martina.elise3 on Nov 19, 2014

      Quite day in York with everyone else now gone. My dorm now is just myself and another girl who keeps to herself. It's boring without other people. Went for a walk around town and found the markets and disney store then headed over to see the Clifford Tower and the York museum. Not a very full on day, just a quite one plodding along before heading up to ...

      ... rebuild with all the architectural atrocities that economic rationalism can provide.
      The 70's council flats are a real highlight.

      But I'm not here for the scenery, I'm here to visit the Royal Armouries.
      Five floors of amazing displays of arms and armour from England, Europe , the rest of the world and even some from Middle Earth, thanks to Peter Jackson's Weta Workshops.

      After my lazy morning in York, and the ride down, I don't get settled ...
