The grande-dame of York in the heart of the City with views of the Minster

Principal York, just steps from the train station, is the perfect base from which to discover the historic city of York.

Award-winning interior architects Goddard Littlefair have refurbished and restored the hotel, blending the grandeur of late-Victorian architecture with the comforts of modern travel to create 155 elegant, comfortable bedrooms and suites in balanced, neutral tones that offer more than a place to sleep.



Opening in the late 1800’s, The Met Hotel Leeds has welcomed guests for over a century. Designed by local architects, the hotel is renowned for its Victorian terracotta facade and stone cupola taken from the city’s demolished 4th White Cloth Hall. Today, The Met Hotel Leeds is still a much-loved landmark in Leeds’ cityscape, blending the original design with contemporary interiors to create a 4-star city centre retreat. All guests have access to an on-site gym with a range of equipment to ensure you don’t need to miss a workout.

The Met Hotel is also home to the Tempus Restaurant & Bar. Guests can enjoy seasonally inspired all-day dining, with menus crafted from local ingredients served in a stylish setting. Perfectly suited for weddings, meetings, and conferences in Leeds, The Met Hotel is home to 18 modern event spaces ideal for any occasion, including the famous grand ballroom.

Just minutes from the train station and close to the city’s prestigious shopping area, bars and restaurants, The Met Hotel Leeds is ideally located for city breaks, business trips and events.

You’ll receive a warm welcome from our friendly staff and be treated to fantastic hospitality throughout your stay with us.
