Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor

Struggling to find family hotels in Leeds that can cater for you and the kids without turning into a cartoonish hellhole full of neon and E numbers? Relax, we’ve got you covered.

Here are the best family-friendly hotels in Leeds, that offer as much for grown-ups as it does for your little urchins.

Our top picks

Innkeepers Lodge at the Calverley Arms

Innkeepers Lodge at the Calverley Arms, Calverley Lane, Leeds, LS28 5QQ - Visit now

Set in the picturesque village of Calverley, just 7 miles from Leeds, this 19th century inn has enough rustic charm to keep everyone happy. And if the Victorian stylings don’t encourage your children to be seen and not heard, you can always drown them out by methodically working your way through the range of cask ales. Cheers!
