Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaxi66 second stay and just as good as the first!!!
This hotel was fab when we stayed in December and was just as good last weekend
I dont know what the training regime is but its so different to many IGH hotels ( and I stay in lots!) You are greated with a cheerful memeber of staff where ever you go - reception, breakfast room, the bar, in corridors and nothing is too much trouble
We stayed in room 618, great room - loads of space, such a comfy bed - we slept like babies!!!!
Its an easy walk into town, so for us a great location for a day of retail therapy, a nice lunch out and then dinner at Kendells Bistro which was also fab - a great combo!!!
Thanks to you all and we will be back again soon!
...but ...where are my 600 points that we were promised as a Platinum memeber - they have not appeaed on my account!!!!..if this is the only negative there is not much to complain about !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marmalade Wonderful stay as always!
We have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Leeds many times now. Parking is easy and convenient. Upon entering the hotel, the friendly Reception staff make us feel welcome straight away. They all go out of their way to make our stay extra special. Rooms are clean and spacious, beds are so comfy I wanted to take it home with me! No complaints at all, only praise, and will definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JamakO great service
Stayed here for one night on a business trip and from check in to check out the service was exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Hotel is not as dead central as others and sat nav guidance needs updating but the service is brilliant. Food was lovely too. Well done crowne plaza Leeds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kenneth64 Christmas at Crowne Plaza
This was our first time of staying at a hotel for Christmas.. Arrangements were easily made and confirmed with our contact Tanya, who gave us a phone call a few days before our arranged stay, to confirm any last minute details. On arrival we were expected and the rooms were exactly as booked. Reception manager Matt was extremely polite, helpful and knowledgeable.
Breakfast was the usual good standard and variety.
Christmas Dinner was well organised. Food quality was excellent as was the service. Kieran (our waiter) was prompt, courteous and helpful throughout the lunchtime and afternoon experience. There was even a visit from Father Christmas! I would recommend this event to anyone wanting a quiet first-time break away. Perhaps some entertainment could be included in future?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DP76 good staff and comfortable clean rooms
Staff are excellent and helpful.
Good location 3min walk into the city centre. Has onsite parking or an NCP just behind. Use of Gym and pool recommended.
Rooms are clean, good size and well equipped. Could do with the decor modernising compared to other hotels in the area but still good place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lee W crowne plaza Leeds
My wife and I and my 5yr old son stayed at the crowne plaza on Leeds for a few nights over Xmas 2013, the staff were very friendly and polite and the room was comfortable with all the mod cons we needed, 5 mins walk to the shops. We had a dinner bed and breakfast deal which turned out to be great value, the food was great. The pool and gym was clean and modern, although it was closed all day Xmas day and didn't open until late boxing day making it not very accessible for us but to be expected I guess. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cumbria124 Very nice hotel with extremely friendly staff
I booked the hotel for a weekend away to go Christmas shopping in Leeds and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I booked two nights bed and breakfast in the hotel in an executive room. The room was on the top floor and had a great view. The room was very clean and a good size with a nice bathroom. The breakfast was very good with a hot buffet with all cereals and pastries. The hotel was very busy at the time so there was a little delay in getting seated but the staff were working hard to get tables cleared quickly and made sure they noticed we were there and seated us quickly as they could. It is about a 5 minute walk to the main shops In Leeds so was ideal for us, the reception staff gave directions to the best shops and also in the evening best places to eat and a couple of nice bars. Really enjoyed my stay and wouldn't hesitate to return if I came to Leeds again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shirley01 Staff FANTASTIC !!!!!!
My husband is a member of The Rewards Club for Crowne Plaza and travels extensively around the world. We chose Crowne Plaza, Wellington Street Leeds to stay overnight because we were attending an event in Leeds. We found this year all the Staff were FANTASTIC, so helpful, attentive and couldn't do enough to look after us (party of eight) Our rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. Breakfast was lovely, everything being replaced frequently which meant all the food was freshly cooked and put onto buffet. Really enjoyed a 'naughty' breakfast.
Really enjoyable stay and will most definitely recommend this Leeds hotel and stay again ourselves. Thank you to all at Crowne Plaza, Leeds.

We have used on several occasions and always pleased. Parking is expensive but the benefit of being able to stroll into the centre is great. Ideal if you are visiting Leeds centre and easily accessed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DRMAYR Christmas party night
I have stayed at this Crowne Plaza many times. This night was for my client's Christmas party night.
On check in I was met by the usual very friendly and efficient welcome at reception. Well trained staff here do the hotel a great service.
Some of the party members had arrived early and used the leisure facilities. They spoke well of the pool, sauna etc.
The party night was one of a few on the same evening. Ours was in the dining room. Efficient and friendly bar service where the drink prices are high enough to cause quite a lot of comment. This was followed by a very average meal. Pleasant soup for starter. I am afraid that the turkey main course was very basic. Looked like the vegetables had been counted out on to the plate and the meat was completely forgettable. Cheese board was fine but as usual 3 crackers and 2 very small pieces of celery does not allow you to do much with the cheese selection. I recognised all the dining room staff from breakfast duties. Well done all of them - they served quickly and efficiently and always with a smile. The disco was good. Unusualy good sound levels which made talking possible and well chosen music created a good party atmosphere.
A good night was had by all. If I was judging value for money on the meal and drinks it would be in the poor category. However this Crowne Plaza is made for me by the training and attitude of the staff.
Checkout was as usual efficient and friendly. Best reception team I have ever experienced.
I am not planned to be back in Leeds again but if I ever do I will make this Crowne Plaza my first choice in Leeds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by monkeychops Excellent
Stayed just for one night in November, family of two adults, two children. Great deal, bed, dinner and breakfast. Main comments and compliments have to go to the staff - completely blew us away with their friendliness and extremely helpful in relation to absolutely everything!! Really cannot praise them highly enough, in all departments (spa, front desk, restaurant) they went above the normally expected hospitality level of care. We stay frequently in hotels as a family but this really was impressive and exceptional customer service.
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable

We 3 ladies of a certain age, stayed here before and after the Bocelli concert at the excellent new arena in Leeds. The whole experience was a total joy. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, even as we arrived back to the hotel at well after 2 am.Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and comfortable and roomy, beds lovely with very nice linen. This was a great weekend and a big thank you to the staff and management. we will return!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathbec5901 Best night sleep and fantastic staff
The girls on reception must be praised for their service and knowledge and recommendations of the area nothing was too much trouble and offered suggestions and solutions without prompting. That even extends to the bar staff who overheard our conversation of where to eat who went on to give recommendations,gave us a map and some taxi numbers. Brilliant service.
Rooms I had 2 of the best nights sleep I'd had in a long while , extremely comfortable and clean rooms. Great experience

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dami3666 My 4yr old son really enjoyed the swimming pool.
I booked this hotel over the Leeds Abbey dash weekend, I stayed in a double room with my 4yr old son and husband. the price was extremely reasonable, considering that most hotels increase their rates during these events. The location was perfect for what we needed, not to far from the Trinity Centre and right on the doorstep from the start line :-)
We all used the leisure facilities, we were happy with our experiences. The 12pm check-out was ideal for us too.
The room was really cosy, clean and comfortable, with modern t.v, hairdryer, iron, kettle,air con etc... The empty mini bar was a bonus too, my husband likes to keep his drinks cool.
The staff were extremely helpful,with excellent customer service skills. During our stay, we never saw one member of staff without a friendly smile on their face. A credit to the team and management!!
As we checked out, I was expecting to pay for our parking, but was told that it was ok, we didn't need too, as our parking was free for our stay.
We enjoyed our overall experience and would definitely stay at the Crowne plaza again.

This was a business trip and I was made very welcome on check in.
Location is good for the city centre for meeting my clients.

Bar costs a bit pricey, but a nice atmosphere in that area.
Breakfast was extra which I purchased and was not disappointed.
Overall a very satisfying stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DRMAYR Good location made excellent by front desk staff
I have just finished 3 and a half months based in Leeds. I tried a number of hotels of similar quality and there was little to choose between most. The Crowne Plaza is about 10 minutes walk from the railway station and others are closer.
The hotel is a good standard The beds are very comfortable which is a real bonus. Dining was ok but breakfast lacked imagination. I did not know they did anything different from the buffet until close to my last week.
The hotel regularly sells out mid week. Because of this the prices are above average. Sometimes you cannot book a full week and the online booking rejects your request because one night they are full. They must lose a lot of bookings because of the way their system is set up.
The one factor which brought me back again and again was the front desk staff. They were simply superb. Even if they did not know you they were extremely helpful and happy to help. I cannot recall the number of times I heard reception staff greet a new customer like a genuine long lost friend. I won't name names because that is unfair but if you wanted advice on where to eat or the nearest electrical shop ,,,, the front desk came up trumps every time. I have no idea who recruits them and trains them but someone has a real focus on customer service with a Yorkshire smile.
I will look back on my stay in Leeds with fondness and the Crowne Plaza brand has left me with a great impression which I hope is matched elsewhere.
