Skarch from Bangalor stayed with us at Leeds City...
One could not ask for a better location in Leeds city centre. It is close to the train station, bus stops, the best shopping and top rated restaurants and pubs.
The smart studio has a king size bed, excellent bathroom, a small sitting area with a view of the city, a very well equipped kitchenette, washing machine & dryer and a Mac Mini which doubles as a TV. The TV swivels 180 degrees to face the bed or the sitting area.
The staff are very friendly and helpful without exception. The housekeeping crew made up our room, bath and kitchenette spic and span everyday!
The property is built on a small lot and therefore the corridors are narrow for large luggage. The fire doors make your task of moving in and out a bit difficult along the narrow halls. The room doors close with a rather loud bang: so a neighbour returning late can wake you up. The wood flooring in our room (301) creaked a lot, probably due to faulty laying. These were minor irritations in an otherwise perfect stay.
Overall, we had an excellent stay and would not hesitate to go back next time.

What do we hear from our spectacular combination of serviced apartments and boutique hotels in Leeds? Westminster Abbey might be a few hundred miles south, but wedding bells are ringing in Yorkshire.
Likewise, our high-specification accommodation in central Manchester is alive with talk of Friday April 29th. Prince William and Kate Middleton are to marry in the most prestigious venue England has to offer, while up and down the country people will be getting in on the act, and celebrating in style.
As you can imagine, London will be bursting to the brim with eager spectators, clambering for a peek at the beautiful bride. But fear not, a trip to the capital isn’t the only way to make sure you feel part of the event. Many a council plans to mark the occasion, and there will no doubt be plenty going on in most towns.
It’s also the perfect time of year for a short break in a British city. The nights will be lighter, temperatures milder, and you’ll still have enough time to save for that summer holiday. So, if up North East or North West when the big day finally arrives, here are our top tips for ‘joining in’, in your own special way…
Indulge in fantasy (just don’t get too involved)
Caroline Castigliano is amongst the UK’s most acclaimed wedding dress-makers. Do some window-shopping, or dare to step inside the Headrow boutique, then resume your Leeds retail therapy elsewhere.
Remember the details
Delicacies are essential, real wedding or not. Slattery’s in Prestwich is Manchester’s chocolate heaven. Hark as complicated cakes are painstakingly crafted, before filling your boots in the tearoom upstairs.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Dazzle, the UK’s leading jewellery exhibition and fare, just left Manchester. But head across town to the Northern Quarter’s Craft Centre for perfect rings, and five minutes with the designer.
Tea at the Palace
Temple Newsam House is truly unique. Comprising a stately home widely known as the ‘Hampton Court of the north’, gardens, grounds and a rare breed farm, there’s no finer place to be in Leeds at 3pm.
A blue-blooded pursuit
Hunting isn’t a city activity. But travel 20 minutes from Manchester city centre to aim over 400 acres of beautiful woodland at Manchester Clay Shooting Club in Worsley, before retiring to the drawing room.
