I stayed at the three star Jurys Inn Leeds for one night in mid February 2012. I booked the day before I travelled to Leeds. I wanted to find a hotel within a ten minute walk from Leeds railway station at a reasonable price for a late booking. I started off searching for Leeds hotels on the HotelsCombined price comparison site. The Jurys Inn Leeds came up at £66 a night for single use of a double room including breakfast on the Hotels.com site. I had a 10% off Hotels.com discount code, bringing the price down to £60.

Jurys Inn Leeds is located at Brewery Wharf at Leeds Waterfront. It’s less than a ten minute walk from Leeds railway station. The hotel lobby was spacious, light and modern.
I was delighted that my room had a view over the Wharf. The room was a fair size with a very comfortable bed. The toileteries were good quality. The desk area was large and there were two chairs in the room. The double glazing blocked all exterior noise. There was a sound like continiously running water in the bathroom (maybe the extractor fan wasn’t swtiching off) but I couldn’t hear that noise in the bedroom once the door to the bathroon was shut.
To me the negatives of the room were the shower curtain, as I much prefer a proper screen, and the price for internet access (£5 for one hour or £10 per day). In my opinion, the hotel could, at a minimum, offer free WiFi in the lobby. Fortunately I was able to pick up a fast T-Mobile mobile internet connection through my USB modem, which costs £10 a month for 1GB of data.

In summary, I was very happy with my stay at Jurys Inn Leeds. I loved the location at the Leeds Waterfront, all the staff were very pleasant, my room was comfortable and quiet with a great view over Brewery Wharf and breakfast was tasty. However I think that charging £10 a day for internet connection is unjustifiable.
