Here is our short guide to LGBT Hotels and Apartments in and around #gayleeds.
OK, so maybe the title of this article gives the wrong impression. For a city the size of Leeds, there are no (or none that we know about) LGBT Hotels.

So below are a few hotels that we would recommend if you wanted to stay in or close to Leeds city centre.
