The 80-year-old Leeds hotel has seen a huge transformation over the last few years and it’s been noted. The eagerly awaited Sunday Times Top 100 list sees the beautifully refurbished hotel in the city centre make the list.
Costing £16million, the hotel’s bedrooms were transformed with the addition of 17 rooms, totalling 232 including a Presidential Suite with an outdoor terrace. The inspired art-deco restaurant was praised, with the reviewer calling it “magnificent”, a word becoming more frequent when describing the West Yorkshire city, which is quickly becoming one of the countries top cosmopolitan cities.
The ground floor is now how to the luxury Grand Pacific all-day restaurant, which is a Raffles-inspired restaurant and bar recreating the golden age of high society.
Guests can enjoy opulent art-deco interiors inspired by the age of exploration. The Queens Hotel has been transformed into a striking venue styled on the grand old colonial hotels of south-east Asia.
There is also the Café Pacific coffee lounge, which is a social hub that offers co-work spaces and acts as a social hub for the city centre. Enjoy an indulgent High Tea or grab a bite-sized treate and sandwich as well as fragrant teas and cocktails on its afternoon tea menu.
The Queens Hotel general manager, Alistair Campbell, said: “It is a huge honour to be included in The Sunday Times top 100 Best Places to Stay guide.
“It’s a testament to our incredible team and demonstrates the quality of the refurbishment, which has allowed us to welcome guests back to this iconic Leeds landmark.
“We’re thrilled that there has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the transformation and now that people are excited to get back out and about, we can’t wait to showcase the new look to our guests, whether they are staying, making use of our co-working and meeting spaces or simply enjoying the relaxing surroundings of Grand Pacific.”
