From the minute we pulled up outside 42 The Calls we received outstanding service. Check-in was very efficient and we were offered a complimentary glass of wine as we checked in. Our bags were carried upstairs and we were shown how to use everything in the room. We were meant to be heading into Leeds for the evening, but we chose to stay in and drink champagne in the wonderful surroundings, looking out over the River Aire. We ordered room service, which was not as expensive as we had originally expected, and was delivered via the hatch from the corridor. Switchboard operators knew who we were without having to give our names or room number, the TV had our names programmed on it, and when we nipped out in the afternoon we were welcomed back into our room by a personalised letter & boxes of smarties. Molton Brown toiletries, a King-size bed with Feather duvet, Plasma TV with wireless internet access and the excellent personalised service all made our stay one that will be remembered and talked about for many years!! There were however a few little niggles, such as only one window could be opened, which would have been a problem had it been any warmer. A large spider had built himself a temporary home above the bathroom door, but who can blame him, he probably had the best room in Leeds!! Also when we ordered room service the garlic bread was still frozen, but a call to reception had it replaced promptly. In comparison to the rest of the stay these were very small problems and certainly would not put us off staying there again. In fact when we came home we booked to go back for New Years Eve!!
