Boutique Hotels in Leeds

Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor

If you’re looking for a place to stay in style, you won’t go far wrong with one of its many of  the boutique hotels in Leeds. Small enough to give that personal touch, but with a focus on quality, professionalism and luxury, these will provide those all-important bragging rights when you return from your vacation.

Here are five of the most stylish small-scale boutique hotels in Leeds and its surrounding areas.

Here are our picks

  • 1. The Chambers

    The Chambers, 30 Park Place, Leeds, LS1 2SP - Visit now

    A few minutes walk from both the train station and Leeds’ main shopping district, The Chambers boasts 58 rooms, all individually styled with chic, modern decor. This is first class luxury in a gorgeous old turn-of-the-century building, restored and refitted but retaining plenty of that old world charm.

  • 2. Mercure Leeds Centre

    Mercure Leeds Centre, 23-25 York Pl, Leeds, LS1 2EY - Visit now

    Yes, you guessed it – this jazz-themed hotel takes its inspiration from Duke Ellington himself, who played at the Leeds Music Festival in the late 1950s. Jazzy touches are dotted throughout the 30-odd rooms, with framed sheet music and appropriately-named cocktails. As Nat King Cole might say, if he’d lived to the ripe old age of 99, unforgettable.
