They know how to charge a 10% for service, they forget to clean your table between the courses!!!! Luxury moneygrabing.

Mmmm. Menu extremely limited. Crab risotto was unseasoned with no taste of Parmesan. Very bland and mushy. Main of fillet steak was fine but six chips???? Doesn't matter how chunky. Finally. 10% service charge and still an option to add tip on bill. Bang out of order. Sorry guys but risotto not possible in 10 mins so ???

Having stayed in this hotel and eaten in the restaurant quite a few times, we visited again on a Friday evening for bar food. I ordered the beef and ale pie and my husband ordered the chilli and rice. When the chilli dish came to the table, it was stone cold - at the same time, I tried to cut... More

I had dinner there while staying at the double tree hotel, the food and service were spot on. Next time in this hotel I'll have my meal here again

Lovely place to eat if the weather is nice and you can sit outside overlooking the canal and wharf. Inside is also comfortable. The food is from a basic bar food menu but the quality is really good and I have eaten here now 3 times, each time choosing something different and each time very pleased with the food.

A hen party in Leeds was the reasoning behind visiting the DoubleTree Hilton hotel on a wonderful Saturday afternoon. The building is mightily impressive in the beautiful centre of Leeds. We were greeted by some friendly doormen who showed us to the Granary Lounge. Upon taking our seats in the slightly clinical dining area, we waited for our snacks to... More

Overpriced for a 10% service charge thrown in. Better food available nearby if you book ahead. Staff were friendly but had better food at 42... More
