42 The Calls is a luxury 4 star boutique hotel situated next to the River Aire and is one of the very best Hotels in Leeds. This townhouse hotel is an 18th century Fletland Mill, that was bought by hotelier Jonathan Wix in 1991 and renovated at a cost of £19.5 million. The Leeds hotel is now part of The Eton Collection. It is one of the most gorgeous hotel that you will get to stay in and has wonderful views over the river.
The original features of the mill are very prominent throughout the hotel and adds mountains of character. The chic decor of the rooms work well with the beamed ceilings and authentic wooden window shutters. Each room is elegantly decorated, with big comfortable beds and the bed linen is just exquisite, making your sleep even more delightful. The original paintings in the rooms just add to the individuality of each room. The ensuite bathrooms are quite spacious,offering both shower and bath facilities, with luxury toiletries and there is a little frog soap presented on a washcloth.
It is the little touches and treats at 42 The Calls that truly makes this a unique boutique hotel. My favourite treat is the little smarties boxes, that I found quite peculiar at first but it is just a really cute gesture. All the rooms I believe, get the complimentary fudge and shortbread, and you even get a free glass of wine on arrival. The breakfast at the hotel is simply fantastic, with delicious homemade bread and jams, free range sausages and eggs and even the little ketchup jars were organic. The hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
42 The Calls is definitely an opulent and sybaritic hotel and provides a memorable stay. The hotel is ideally located with some great bars and restaurants around and it’s only a 3 or 4 minute walk from Leeds city centre. Without having to venture too far, there are some great bars on the doorstep of the hotel, with The Oracle being just over the bridge from the and The Calls Landing which is less than 2 minutes away. The quiet surrounding of the waterfront is very relaxing and is ideal for taking a walk along the river.
