Recent guest reviews

Stayed one night whilst in Leeds for a concert. Staff were courteous, room was on the small side but perfectly fine. I can see why it might get noisy but it wasn't during my stay. You get toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities and a tv and it was absolutely fine and tremendous value compared with other options in the city.

I stayed here in a single room for 2 nights and was really happy with my stay. I have walked past this place and never really noticed it before and it's a real find for a cheap easy no frills stay in the heart of Leeds. The hotel is across the road from the train station, literally two minutes away and is a perfect base to explore. It is just a 10 minute walk to the arena, city hall or Royal Armouries Museum. The hot l offers single, double, twin, triple and quad rooms. This is perfect for large groups, hen and stag groups or just an easy base for a shopping trip. Breakfast is £3.95 per person and this is continental - toast, tea, coffee, meats, cheeses etc. Perfect for £3.95 and all that is needed. Rooms are large, bright and comfortable. The beds are exceptionally comfy and extra pillows and blankets are provided if needed. There is a TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a hair dryer in every room. Ample towels and some basic toiletries are provided. The shower was piping hot and really powerful which was very welcome. And I was super happy that the towels were extremely large to fit all the way around me! I cannot give a 5 star review as it was at times noisy. This was not the fault of the hotel but inconsiderate people staying here being loud in the corridors but this did effect my sleep a little. Overall I would recommend this hotel for anyone and everyone. The staff are great and no request is too much for them they will really look after you. For a 2* hotel you're onto a winner here.

Stayed overnight what a lovely place staff very helpful and straight across from Leeds train station. The rooms are a decent size and clean the bed is very comfy ideal for a base if you are planning a visit ... we stayed for a concert . Breakfast is basic ( no full english ) toast and marmalade for me but its fine there are other places near by if you need more ... would stay again recommended for a stay and i would again .... Dean and Louise ...UTM

We booked this hotel the day before we arrived as it appeared central location. It was a little diamond. The rooms were clean, spacious, the staff were friendly and welcoming. The location is superb for the night life Leeds has to offer. Leeds is a beautiful city, it has many hotels that could be a little outside the Centre or a good walk away from the main night life. This hotel is a all round bargain and I would highly recommend. We booked two separate rooms as we traveled with another couple and both rooms were the same standard. Parking is a 2 min walk and the hotel offer a significant discount on 24 hour stays so please ask for a ticket (this is for Q parking)

Just came back . Room was freezing cold rusty bath not worth the £44 we were charged .Draft blowing through windows and the room my friends had radiators were broke so has a electric heater to hear a huge room for 4.woud not recommend a stay here

I stayed here for one night back in February 2018. Room was very clean and tidy, but a bit "tired" Still, what do you expect for the price. It's a good decent hotel fro the price. The bed is very comfortable and room was warm enough for the night. We didn't take the option of breakfast. Staff were all very helpful.

Hotel accommodation in Leeds used to be pretty dire: mostly rather dodgy B&Bs in the suburbs. So it's great to see a range of hotels in central Leeds beyond the Queens & pub accommodation. The Discovery Inn is a very friendly, clean, safe hotel in the centre of Leeds - about 2 minutes from the railway station. Yes, some of the standard of bathroom is a bit old & tired, but I had excellent hot water. I had a single room - very spacious and very comfortable bed, with lots of space in the separate little closet room (between bedroom & bathroom) for my luggage. The main thing is the wonderful friendly staff - David on Reception particularly. Nothing too much trouble for him, and a sense of being greeted like an old friend! The place was old-fashioned, but felt like home. My only issue was very thoughtless guests shouting in the corridors at 2am. But I suppose no hotel can guarantee the manners of other guests.

First off the hotel's location is great, right in the heart of the city. But that's where all the positives end. The room was dated and the bathroom was grotty, I refused to get a shower because of the state of it. Our room was located just above the main road and the loading bay. This wouldn't be a problem (we've stayed in many hotels that are situated on main roads before), however the single glazed windows let all of the street noise in. I don't think me or my husband slept a wink all night due to drunken shouting, cars revving in the nearby tunnels, vans/lorries unloading in the bay. For £50 you can stay at either a Travel Lodge or the Ibis Budget and receive a much nicer/quieter room.

This was our second visit, lovely last time, again a lovely stay but the shower was scalding or freezing, making it impossible to have a nice relaxing shower. TV quite small but adequate. We will stay again if they can get the shower situation sorted out

It would have been perfect for me if only the bathroom has a soaking tub. Getting to the railway station was so convenient. Shopping ,dinning and the cultural centres were just a few walking steps away.
