History of Leeds

Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Leeds can trace its recorded history to fifth century when the Kingdom of Elmet was covered by the forest of "Loidis", the origin of the name Leeds. In the 17th and 18th centuries Leeds became a major centre for the production and trading of wool.

Then, during the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major industrial centre; wool was still the dominant industry but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing and other industries were important. From being a compact market town in the valley of the River Aire in the 16th century Leeds expanded and absorbed the surrounding villages to become a populous urban centre by the mid-20th century.

I found all aspects of the stay to be very good. The accomodation offered good value for money; staff were extremely helpful. I would recommend the accomodation to people who were looking for on a low budget and I would definately book again in the future.

(Review Of Clarence Dock Residence, Leeds)

We were impressed by the standard of the rooms and loved the organic toiletries. We were disappointed that the pool did not open until 8.30am on a Saturday, as this meant we were unable to use it before the start of the uni open day.

(Review Of Storm Jameson Court, Leeds)

I was very impressed overall with the standard of the room and the welcome additions such as tea/ coffee making facilities, fresh towels and wifi and access to the pool. If I ever were to travel to Leeds again over the summer months, I would certainly rebook here.

(Review Of Storm Jameson Court, Leeds)

All good except 2 things: 1. TV ridiculously complicated to use. I spent 30 minutes reading the manual, but no success. Then even the site handyman couldn't get it working. He agreed they should have a simpler TV for people who are mostly only staying a couple of nights. Mine didn't work in the end. 2. Radiators are confusing - you can't tell there the dial needs to be for it to be on.

I really enjoyed the stay. Good location, very comfortable. The only improvement I can suggest would be to offer a with-breakfast option. Although perhaps the Refec isn't always open as it was this weekend....?

(Review Of Storm Jameson Court, Leeds)

Very helpful reception staff especially when I had problem with internet connection. Really enjoyed my stay, appreciated use of sports facilities, very convenient for course I was attending and fun to feel part of university life

(Review Of Storm Jameson Court, Leeds)

Very convenient for me as I was visiting my daughter at Leeds Uni. Room was basic but had a comfy bed, was quiet, the shower was good. They provide towels and a hairdrier . It was all I really needed and I will stay again.

Excellent base for a short break catching up with developments in this vibrant city. Tip: Outside term-time the University refectory doesn't open for breakfast until 0900 (unless there are conferences running). If this is too late there is a diner at the bottom of Mount Preston Street, 200 yards from the Hall.

(Review Of Storm Jameson Court, Leeds)

There are 2 very special people who made our stay at Storm Jameson memorable. Colin and Tony went out of their way to assist us. They offered advice, helped with scheduling our various trips and were in general very friendly and kind. They even remained after their shift on a couple of occasions, to assist us. Please pass on our sentiments to these 2 gentlemen and to their supervisors.
