Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mel10 Poor value for money
room that I had booked but was unavailable. Rooms need updating. Breakfast ok but needed replenishing and no staff to do this. Poor value for money considering other accommodation available
Staff friendly though

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by morgana44 Missing breakfast
The quality of the breakfast was deplorable. I have stayed in very many hotels and guest houses in York and Leeds over the last 10 years and none offered a breakfast of this poor quality - and most were cheaper. Even the cheapest, lowliest transport cafe would have done better. There seemed to be an economizing on staff. The only tea was serve yourself from hot water machine with teabags. it was weak and tasteless.
Apart from packets of cereals, there was no fruit selection beyond tinned grapefruit. Economy 1950s style. Even if you liked this, many people cannot eat it because of commonly used medications.
The bread was sliced budget shop.
Worst of all was the 'cooked' breakfast. Only baked beans, sausage and scrambled eggs. Again, there seemed to be a shortage of staff - so no bacon, fried eggs, omelettes etc., No cold meat, fish or cheese on offer either.
The sausages were truly awful. They might as well have been made of paper pulp or soy. Overcooked and doused with over-powering herbal flavouring (thyme). Scrambled egg like plastic scraps.
Not to be recommended. Avoid!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kitkat6o4 great location, great staff
Would certainly recommend this hotel. Excellent location next to river with restaurants, bars and city within easy walking distance. Staff very helpful and friendly, great service. Only niggle - no bacon at breakfast & suggest don't bother with scrambled egg.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paultco Always a warm welcome!
Yet another great stay. The staff are first rate and always go that extra mile to ensure you have a great stay.
Being away from home on business is always a chore but the team make this hotel feel like a second home.

I would like to commend one member of staff at the holiday inn Armouries Leeds, his name is Dom and he is the one member of the staff who made our stay most enjoyable. He always had a
smile and a welcoming word,he was willing to help us in any way and seemed to be doing most jobs in the hotel. Well done Dom!

On arrival we were greeted by Andy who asked us the purpose of our stay (a w/e break)
Andy provided us with on line booking facilities for the ballet at West Yorkshire Playhouse, ordered our taxi and recommended a nearby restaurant. He couldn't do enough for us and continued with friendly service whenever on duty. We felt very much at home.

A modern, attractive and well situated hotel - the only down side is that the Armouries area didn't take off and is therefore a bit of a ghost town.
Not the hotel's fault, though. And the staff here gave excellent service. We came in late and a little worse for wear and the guy on the counter provided us with a complimentary bottle of water to help us out! Excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnt1612 Great hotel - strange hot breakfasts
Everything was great about the hotel apart from the revolting economy sausages served at breakfast. Even though I only had one, it's greasy aroma revisited me during the course of the day. Wish I'd only had the continental option!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Bed was spot on
Managers attitude to other guest was abysmal. No explanation re electrics in room therefore no cuppa in the morning. Breakfast was suited to a 12 year old. Generally not a comfortable stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Julita Leakage shower head joints and weary bed and beddings.
We travel a lot nationally and Internationally. My son and I first impression when we arrive in the hotel lobby, "oh know! we pick the wrong hotel" and we nearly cancel our two nights stay. We booked for double room with sofa bed through booking.com but not in there system the check-in desk receptionist told us, so she's good enough to change to twin room at the end. My son bed was okay but not my bed 'old and uncomfortable', and the beddings was wear and tear. The next day of our stay, I reported to the front desk receptionist regarding the shower head and water hose joint is leaking very badly and she assured us it will be repair same day but it didn't happen. Breakfast menu choices very poor, breakfast area 'over crowded and noisy' , unclear tables and short of staff. Our last day, one of the towel we been given had someone blood stain and it seems not been wash, it made my blood boil. I show the towel to the front desk receptionist 'Andy ' cannot stop saying sorry to us. Wow! it's the worst accommodation we ever had here in UK. We decided not to stay to any Holiday Inn Express UK branches from now on! Very disappointing! Not a value of money at all!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caz11 Excellent location. Helpful Staff. Comfortable Room.
I stayed here with my partner and have stayed 3 times in the last week as I have found the hotel is excellently situated, almost bang in the middle of the city centre. THe hotel offers excellent privacy as is located behind the royal armouries which overlooks the canal and the calls. Very much ideal for families as is wishing couplebof feet from the royal armouries museum and dino jaws museum for children, but also for couples who wish for privacy and a quiet location. The price was excellent! I paid very cheap price and the room was a pleasant size and cleanliness was good. Smoking rooms are available in request, but in availability basis. Hotel made me aware that I had breakfasts included on our rooms and that was a pleasant surprise as was not aware beforehand. Check in was fast and easy. I have registered as a member of this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Soumch Overall Experience
I am afraid I cant say that I had minimum basic expectations being met
1. The extra sofa bed which was provided could have been easily provided a extra mattress .Instead 3 nights have to go through bearing the pain of iron rods of the sofa bed which was piercing in the night
2. The amneties available for tea and coffee in the room was so low that even as couple we wanted to have extra cup we had to be g for it and was asked to come down from 5th floor to collect the same
3. I wanted to have dinner for my daughter and mentioned please provide some lil more rice and no nun...I was straightaway said it is not possible with loads of reasons which I do not intend to hear
4. Internet was so down that I did not get connected for 2 nights and was told it is down
I have paid to receive a certain mandaotry services. I am not sure why did I still pay compromising my services received on a holiday
Hi Chris- I know you are the most understandable person and wanted to retain and convince me , but this time I am adamant probably with my fifth or 6th stay that I will not come back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Siddurst Another Excellent Stay
There is nothing really to say other than excellent service from check in to check out. Staff are amazing and really friendly.
My membership status was recognised not that it bothers me as I sometimes I make last minute bookings.
We had the fire alarm go off at half past mid night, one night all the guests evacuated the hotel and assembled at the assembly point and staff managed and controlled the situation really well. So much so it did not ruin night sleep.
We were back in the hotel within an hour. That in itself is impressive considering the amount of people that have to be accounted for.
Not much more to say other than keep up the good service always a pleasure to stay at this hotel.

We had been driving all day, and were desperate to relax in comfort..
The young lady that booked us in, was so friendly and helpful, recommending parking etc. It was just as if we were amongst people that knew us and really cared...
We wil most defiantly be returning !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EssentialBusTraveller Superb Customer Service
Arrived early and asked if possible to have one of the rooms ready to unload baggage. Guest reception/manager Dom was excellent in arranging for us to have both rooms and took us through everything we needed to know. Room was showing age especially bathroom where tiles needed regrout. Sink had no plug and was draining slowly, Dom took the message and sorted this out. (Thank you).
Breakfast was good but the fruit had passed its sellby and didn't look appetising on the first day. The location is superb and the car park is convenient. Able to walk along canalside to the centre of town.
Cant fault location and staff, maybe some of the rooms need re-energising but I recommend this hotel as the perfect place to stay when visiting Leeds

This is in a great location and delivers the exceptional standards as normal with Holiday Inn Express. Was given excellent customer service and advice from Dom at reception.
Only issue i had was that i was there on business which meant i was working nights so tried to sleep in the day but there was maintenance work going on above me in other rooms so the last sleep that i had was limited and i was not told about the work on my arrival.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BRyan28 Friendly staff and good location
Good value and great location. A pleasant stroll to the town centre. Breakfast options were plentiful rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and professional. We had a fire alarm in the early hours of our first night stay and I'd like to compliment the lady and gentleman on duty that night for their calm manner in dealing with some very rude customers during the evacuation. Personally I'd rather suffer the inconvenience of standing outside for a time whilst the incident is looked into than being trapped in a burming building!! We would stay at this hotel again when visiting Leeds.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aitch57 Dissapointed with breakfast!!
Breakfast with no bacon and fried eggs, that's not English breakfast! No flavour at all to the scrambled MUSH, all the cooked food was cold, sausages were very herby and not cooked properly. Overall would not stay here again with my staff, as we need a good breakfast for a long day ahead of us in the hospitality industry.
