West Yorkshire Reports

Leeds, West Yorkshire

Review of Leeds by Susie on March 31st, 2010
Love it. We shop here fortnightly because we love the whole atmosphere and the buzz. It's so lively and vibrant, the choice of shops and exclusive top fashion designer stores are superb. The independant boutiques that sit in the arcades are gorgeous. The Victoria Quarter is stunning it's hardly surprising it's named as the mini Nightsbridge Of The North with it's immaculately clean architecture and gleaming window displays. The cafes and restaurants are spotless and it's nice to be able to sit and enjoy a latte and dessert in pollution free precincts and arcades (unlike the odd towns). The shop staff we find are also always so happy to help and always give first class service. So down to earth and will always have a friendly chat with you. We also find them extremely good mannered and polite which is excellent. We love leeds it's the king of shopping in Yorkshire.

I was a stutent nurse in LEEDS from 1970 to 1973 i lived at ST JAMES HOSPITAL nurses home. LEEDS then was a depressing, grey city, but with warm . witty people, down to earth , kind, helpful. I loved my time there. and missed the city when i moved to SHEFFIELD.Iam hoping to return for a visit in september this year, as i believe its now alive with great shopping, good restaurants, and great theatres.I am looking forward to seeing the changes, and visiting all the places i remember from way back then.

Date 8/10/06 first of all I was born in in lancaster, but i would class myself as an honourey yorkshire man, leeds is awsome i've lived in a few cities and drunk and been drunk in a lot more. There is no were else in britian ive felt more at home the people are so welcoming apart from the knobheads you get in every city but thats to be expected unfortunatley. Please drink a the blooming rose in beeson, it not the best decorated free inn but the managers are awesome and the beer is good but not cheap.

Review of Leeds by Cath on September 6th, 2006
42 THE CALLS, LEEDS From the minute we pulled up outside 42 The Calls we received outstanding service. Check-in was very efficient and we were offered a complimentary glass of wine as we checked in. Our bags were carried upstairs and we were shown how to use everything in the room. We were meant to be heading into Leeds for the evening, but we chose to stay in and drink champagne in the wonderful surroundings, looking out over the River Aire. We ordered room service, which was not as expensive as we had originally expected, and was delivered via the hatch from the corridor. Switchboard operators knew who we were without having to give our names or room number, the TV had our names programmed on it, and when we nipped out in the afternoon we were welcomed back into our room by a personalised letter & boxes of smarties. Molton Brown toiletries, a King-size bed with Feather duvet, Plasma TV with wireless internet access and the excellent personalised service all made our stay one that will be remembered and talked about for many years!! There were however a few little niggles, such as only one window could be opened, which would have been a problem had it been any warmer. A large spider had built himself a temporary home above the bathroom door, but who can blame him, he probably had the best room in Leeds!! Also when we ordered room service the garlic bread was still frozen, but a call to reception had it replaced promptly. In comparison to the rest of the stay these were very small problems and certainly would not put us off staying there again. In fact when we came home we booked to go back for New Years Eve!!
