The hotel is a large Victorian house tucked away in a leafy, tranquil area, but is close to main roads, tourist sites, and the cities of Leeds
. The family-run hotel offers good views, individual decor, and an informal style, not to mention comfy sofas, interesting artworks and excellent food. In short, it’s the antidote to all those identical, anonymous chain hotels. The historic locks on the Leeds and Liverpool canal (after which the hotel is named) are nearby.
