The Independent news explores the best hotels in the vibrant city of Leeds. Previously an industrial city, Leeds now hosts a lively scene of international cuisine, flourishing parks and even heritage mills reinvented as craft-beer bars. Over the years the city has attracted substantial investment and today welcomes business travellers and tourists alike.
In early 2017, the Dakota brand stepped foot onto English soil with a brand new deluxe hotel in Leeds city centre. They refer to themselves as a modern classic, offering a truly luxurious experience with a unique sense of identity. Upon arrival you are greeting by the concierge in a flat cap and a rope dog “Fetcher”. The small Scottish hotel chain is jointly owned and operated by Evans Property Group and Ken McCulloch along with his award-winning interior designer wife Amanda Rosa. Together they ensure elegance and provenance with custom-made contemporary sculptures on display, alongside full-length lifestyle photography.
Defined by muted grey interiors paired with super-soft mohair throws, the rooms epitomise elegance and comfort. Rooms at the Dakota Deluxe include 48” wall mounted TVs state of the art technology and wonderfully appointed bathrooms.
Currently ranked #1 in Leeds and maintaining a perfect score of 5/5 on TripAdvisor, this hotel is highly recommended for all occasions.
