Arrived at the hotel late Sunday afternoon after a few detours around Leeds. The receptionist was very friendly and directed us to a good car park. Once back at the hotel we were offered a glass of wine which was very acceptable. They ordered a taxi which took us to the new arena. Arriving back after the concert we were...

We stayed one night at 42 The Calls on a Friday night, visiting my son at the Uni. We phoned a few days before and got a better rate than offered on the internet - and at £85 for the room, it was very good value. When this hotel opened in Leeds it was the first 'boutique' property in the...

Thank you for your review. Overall it seems you enjoyed your stay, however I was concerned with some of the points you mentioned. Please accept my apologies that there was only one bath towel in your room, if a room is booked for two then two bath towels should be placed in the room. There are plans to refurbish the...

The hotel is in a quite street with on street parking - as I have a Blue Badge it was a big plus as we could park for free. The location was great as the shops where nearby. When you go through the swivel doors it's like going into the tardis! Very small frontage, but beautiful interior. We were greeted...

This was my second stay & it was every bit as good as the first. Very friendly welcome and staff. Excellent use of the building, a former warehouse, with lovely views over the river and a really comfortable room. Great value too.

Our room overlooked the river with really interesting view of the surrounding riverside area. The large bed was extremely comfortable, the room was spacious and clean, the wardrobe had an internal light which switched on when the door was opened. The presentation of the food in the breakfast room [which overlooked the river] was exceptionally good, with cereal in little...

Thank you for your 5/5 review. I am glad that the surprise flowers and afternoon tea went well, our chef Nigel will be pleased you enjoyed his homemade scones, which I have to say are my favourite. I hope your wife thoroughly enjoyed her birthday whilst on business in Leeds and we do hope to see you both again soon....

First stayed here about 3 years ago and was really impressed that time. This time... nice glass of complimentary wine offered at check-in and key given to room on second floor, no directions.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I was most concerned to read your comments, especially as a return customer. All guests are offered the porter’s assistance and you should have been offered this service with your check in and I am sorry that this was not the case.

Stayed on business as presenting at a conference in Leeds. I do a lot of business travel and one night stays and I've always said all you need is a good shower and a comfortable bed.

I like staying here as it is such a change from the big corporate hotels and what they get right here is the slightly quirky design and approach.
