Whitbread Plc. has announced it is to open a new Premier Inn in Leeds city centre, injecting over £7.5 million into the local economy.


Whitbread PLC is to open its brand new Premier Inn hotel in Leeds City Centre North on 9th April 2012. The property will contribute over £7.5 million to the local economy whilst creating 40 new jobs for Leeds residents.

The brand new 130 bedroom hotel is situated in Leeds City Centre North on Claypit Lane and is just a stone’s throw from the Millennium Square, Leeds flagship project to mark the year 2000 which has become a focal point for events in the city centre. The square is bordered by many of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the Town Hall, Leeds City Museum, Leeds Academy and Leeds College of Art.

The new hotel is ideal for travellers being located just over a mile from Leeds Railway station and perfectly situated near all the shopping plazas, restaurants and theatres this lively city has to offer. The hotel is also within a five mile radius to both Leeds Metropolitan University and the University of Leeds.  

David Kent, General Manager of Premier Inn Leeds City Centre North, commented: “The hotel is ideally located for those looking for a great value weekend break as the city has so much to offer. It will also be extremely convenient for business travellers looking for accommodation near the city centre.”

Each bedroom caters for up to two adults and two children (aged 15 and under) and includes an en-suite bathroom; a king size bed; remote control TV with Freeview; tea/coffee making facilities, and a spacious desk area with Wi-Fi Internet access. The site will also offer the All You Can Eat ’Premier Breakfast’ in the on-site restaurant.

Premier Inn offers all guests a no quibble ’Good Night Guarantee’ which means if customers are not 100% satisfied with their stay they will get their money back.  

With over 600 hotels nationwide, Premier Inn is at more locations than any other hotel chain in the UK. More information can be found at
