Like other hotels in the Premier Inn chain, this hotel is clean and well maintained offering a great value accommodation option but it is somewhat lacking in character.It is located in a residential area 6.5km (4 miles) east of Leeds city centre. Buses run regularly into the city centre with a stop near the hotel on Selby Road and another stop, a five-minute walk away on Ring Road, which has more frequent buses. You can also walk to Cross Gates station in around 12 minutes, where there are trains running every half hour into Leeds with additional peak hour services.
Although it doesn’t appear that there is much in the immediate area, there is a pub next door (the Brown Cow) and there are a couple of shopping areas within a 15-minute walk from the hotel including Cross Gates and Colton Retail Park.
It is the closest hotel to Temple Newsam, which is around a 25-minute walk. Just cross Selby Road and then walk down Colton Road and you’ll eventually get to the stately home.
Premier Inn is the largest hotel chain in the United Kingdom and it usually scores very high on customer surveys when compared to other UK hotel chains. It operates at the budget end of the market and provides a reasonably high standard of accommodation for the price, and is comparable to ibis and Travelodge hotels.
