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.

Was well pleased! Will come again next time I visit Leeds Univ' Library. Apologies to the two night reception guys, I must have bored them rigid with my waffling! :)

(Review Of Storm Jameson Court, Leeds) Storm Jameson Court, Leeds

Overall, excellent. Room 4.11 unfortunately overlooks the court entrance and sometimes there is a lot of noise late at night of the front door opening and closing (automatically) and of people on phones talking in the court. Otherwise, it was really very good. Very comfortable room.

Bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Shower was perfect temperature and flow of water. I enjoyed the cookies and tea. Wonderful experience! A close walk to my university child who lives in residence. Very secure building!!

Perfect for what I need. Working as an IT Contractor at the University, the location couldn't be better and the rooms, for the price, are perfectly OK. Only problem at this time of year is the Refectory closing early with not a great deal of time between breakfast and lunch... Otherwise, no problems and am staying here again week commencing July 16th.

We arrived in torrential winds and rain to a very warm reception. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. It was a great start to what turned out to be a great stay.

1) it would have been useful to have a map in the room which indicates local food outlets, especially since breakfast was not provided, nor was the refectory open for one of the two days I was there 2) the mechanical window opening device was broken Otherwise, very comfortable room. I wish they'd been like that when I was a student!

Everything as expected as I have stayed in like accommodation before. The only thing I can pick fault at is there was only one larger towel to shower with when we booked for two.

(Review Of Arena Village (Campus Accommodation), Leeds) Arena Village (Campus Accommodation), Leeds

Very clean, quiet room and ensuite. Good supply of towels, pleased to have kettle, hair dryer and a good wifi connection. Much more enjoyable and better value than some 'cheaper' hotels.( Did not have breakfast )
