    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.

    Day Sixty Six: Barnsley

    ... it to go to the boundary, I have to nail the cover off of it and it only just trickles over. The start for Yorkshire didn't go well, Finch getting cleaned up for 14 and losing wickets regularly throughout the innings. If it wasn't for some late order hitting from Yorkshire then it would have been a fairly one-sided game. Northampton ended up winning by 10 runs. We ...

Jenna was already upstairs sitting behind her laptop looking into accommodation and the like for the different countries we will be travelling.

    I have absolutely powered through Homeland today, I managed to watch five episodes! There wasn't anything else to do today so why not! That was how the majority of the morning and the afternoon was spent, only broken up when we went down to the park and I did some exercises on the play equipment. We tried to avoid eating much food today as we were getting picked up at 6:30 ...

    Got back early and got an early night, after getting a few emails off to confirm my flight on Sunday and check with my mud hut for the next few weeks. The airline got back today, but no news from the hut! Hope it ain't blown away....
    Will post this now with a few pics, then have a break before my next one. Just in case I loose my Wi-Fi again...

    We finished our day in Leeds where we spent the night. We had a wonderful welcome dinner that was most delicious. After dinner, we enjoyed a few drinks with some of the others on the tour. But, it’s another early day, so time to close! See you tomorrow on our way to ...
