Central location and good value

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 24, 2012

The Discovery Inn couldn't be in a better location if you're travelling to Leeds by train - it is literally a stone's throw from the main railway station. It is also extremely good value - I booked myself a single room (admittedly on an off-peak night) for £30. A very basic buffet-style continental breakfast is an additional £3.75. The building is old, with some character and several eccentricities - for example Floor 7 is on the, erm, third floor, as is the main reception desk!

On first sight my room was fine, very clean, with a TV, coffee and tea facilities, a hair dryer, bedside lamp and an alarm clock/radio. The bathroom was also very clean and roomy. The water was piping hot. On the downside the bathroom plug was stuck closed, so slowly filled with mucky water. The pillow on the bed was thin and uncomfortable.

Wireless internet is available but you have to pay extra for it. There was also a computer in the lobby available for use, at £1 for 20 minutes.

All in all, the experience was fine, the staff were friendly and, for the price, the hotel was quite adequate for a good night's sleep.

Directions: Immediately west of Leeds main railway station.

This is rare tip of a Leeds Hotel/Accommodation Review because I live in Leeds and usually wouldn't stay in a hotel.

I received the following reviews from a VT Member and a friend of mine who stayed at The Discovery Inn when visiting Leeds.

"It was ok but breakfast was charged!" (Ruth, a friend, March 2011)

"Would recommend Discovery anyway!" (Suvanki, VT Member, May 2011)

Unique Quality: There are 80 bedrooms and breakfast is available at 3.75 gbp (October 2011)

Directions: Adjacent to Leeds City Station

If you like ancient buildings with a "different" shape, far from the exclusive but plain modern ones this is your hotel. Enclosed into an old thin curved building -but very nice- this hotel shows a strange inner geometry, i.e: reception is at the third floor while breakfast room is at the first one and elevator only reaches fourth floor -reaching the fifth one is through the stairs, as it was my case-. Nevertheless it has a warmth and comfortable atmosphere that you will not find everywhere. Room was ok, clean, comfortable, without luxuries and bathroom worked well so I have nothing against it.

I chose this place after having been searching hotels at York -one of my leading destinies- because I discovered Leeds had much more -and better- hotel offer and prices are better too. And Discovery Inn, i.e., being cheaper had even breakfast included!.

Unique Quality: I think the closest hotel to Leeds railway station, which was key for my trip. Having a Britrail Pass and a list of dozens places to visit it was undoubtedly the top option and I can say it worked perfectly for my purpose.
