You only get what you pay for is not true.

Posted 19-Feb-2017
Pros: Great location, friendly cheerful staff and inexpensive for a city center hotel.
Cons: Nothing, you get more than you pay for already.
Location: The location of the hotel is right in the heart of the city. Things to do, there is so much around that I would need to write a book to cover them all
The Discovery Inn couldn't be closer to the center of Leeds, you can see city square and the railways station from most windows. This is what is probably called a budget hotel which gives outstanding value, there is no bar or restaurant. That said my experience with this hotel was extremely good. It is minutes walk from Leeds City Station and within an absolute maximum of five minutes walk from all the shops, bars, culture and entertainment you could wish for. One of the many shopping centers The Trinity is two minutes walk away. As to the lack of a hotel bar the hotel is sandwiched between two pubs and faces two more. One of the next door pubs, The Scarborough Hotel has a history dating back to 1765 becoming a pub in 1826 and having strong ties to the music halls in the 1890's. As to the Discovery Inn not having a restaurant it is surrounded by places to eat, however they do serve a continental breakfast in their ground floor meeting room. All in all my stay was very pleasant: the room was clean and a good size, it had the usual tea and coffee facilities, a trouser press, flat screen TV and free wifi in the room, my bathroom was very large and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was an ironing room on the third floor which I found more sensible than having a board and an iron in the room. Be warned that the hotel is six floors but the lift only services five if you have a problem with stairs ask not to be put on the top floor. Definitively cheap and very cheerful

Good price for location

Posted 19-Feb-2017
Pros: Location, low price
Cons: No plastic undersheet on bed. Would prefer a cooked breakfast but understand the extra work and cost for the hotel.
Good value given that it was right next to the train station, and staff helpful in ordering a taxi. However I do not like rubberised undersheets on beds, and removed it.

Great location

Great location for Leeds train station and close to shopping , cafes and bars. Hotel was good value for the price, bed was comfortable but a bit on the small side. Strange smell in the lift/ ground floor lift area.

Getting to and from our room was a bit of a trek as the hotel seemed to encompass two separate buildings. But the room was clean and comfortable and warm with a very good shower in the bathroom

Great location

Posted 09-Feb-2017
Nice hotel, in the city centre and round the corner from the shops. Room was very clean and warm. All facilities worked. Staff could not have been anymore friendly especially the woman on reception who checked us in. Always said 'have a good day' and 'hello' when walking past. Can't fault anything about this hotel. Great location and incredible value for money

Excellent value hotel. Nothing "spectacular" per se, but comfortable and located very conveniently to the train station. Bathroom/shower was a bit average but, again, perfectly reasonable given the great value/price of the room.
