I had to ask three times if we could order drinks. The staff just kept walking past us and pretending they could not see us despite It being almost empty.

Me and my husband holiday in Leeds at least once a year to stay at this hotel and enjoy the bar so we were very surprised by the poor service.

When our drinks arrived a mojito and a short and stormy, the mojito was weak and not up to the standard we have come to expect.

We did not order food due to the bar not serving any due to covid. However the review system would not let me progress to this page unless I rated it! So please ignore the food rating.

Sky Lounge @ Leeds Hilton please return to your usual self!

I booked a table for two expecting to be able to order food as there was no indication on OpenTable that food wasn’t being served and there was a menu available.
We were seated quickly and given drinks menus. The server was pretty quick to take our order but it took a while to get the drinks themselves.
Once our drinks did arrive I asked to a food menu but was met with a confusing explanation the jist of which was that they’re no longer doing evening meals, it’s afternoon tea only.
So after ringing around we found that the NEON CACTUS, an amazing and delicious Mexican restaurant on Call Lane, could fit us in and feed us...so we left. After one drink.
I’m pretty sure there will be enough walk-ins for it not to matter to their business but it wasn’t cool from a customer service POV.
Sky Lounge is hella pretentious at the best of times, and I just don’t have the lip filler or fake tan to ever look at home there, plus their range of beers is very poor. But I had a powerful lust for the delicious triple cooked chips and flat iron strips with salsa verde, but sadly disappointed.
On the up side I can 1000% recommend NEON CACTUS, Call Lane. The service, the food, the drinks, the ambiance and the value for money are all top notch 👌🏻

Afternoon tea was a delight. On a personal note we prefer more savoury to sweet so would prefer an extra sandwich or savoury pastry to sweet, but that is not a criticism just our choice. Staff very attentive and extremely helpful. We had a great afternoon thank you.

Expectation was high and looking forward to afternoon tea with my wife, the sky lounge was comfortable with a good panoramic vista of Leeds, then the food arrived, what a disaster, the serving platter was scuffed and the food on it was bland and not even a hint colour!
The bread was bordering on stale and still with crusts, not expected from such a renown hotel chain, and there wasn't even a full sandwich between us, the savories were indistinguishable and had you been blind folded it would have been near impossible to determine the taste or difference, the token sweet was undescernable, finally something to behold a scone which looked and tasted like a scone, hurrah!
When one mentions the Hilton it suggests a certain quality which on this occasion was woefully below par and the kitchen and front of house staff should be immensely embarrassed to serve this pathetic assembly of food to paying customers.
I will be pursuing this directly with the hotel management.
I will never return and if asked would not recommend this hotel.

It’s hard to rate your service when you never actually received any in the first place.

It was my first Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend and I wanted to surprise him with cocktails and tapas at the sky lounge as he mentioned he’s always wanted to go.

So I booked the deal where you get tapas and cocktails included. We turn up on time for our table but we had to ask the staff to show us too our table.
We then sit at our table, wait a while and ask a staff member if we perhaps needed to order at the bar.
She replied “this is not my area someone will be with you shortly” another 20 minutes pass still without a drink or our order been taken for food we just decided to leave. We instead went to the slug and lettuce and had a much better evening.
What a waste of time.

If you’d like to spend time with friends and chat- absolutely NOT recommended. Music is far too loud! We couldn’t hear our own thoughts so forget about conversation.

View is brilliant, however very windy on the balcony. The service at reception good, however, waitresses rude and very unpleasant to be served by. Look like upset for being at work- no people/soft skills whatsoever.

In general, good place for getting drunk with no other entertainment. Bare in mind though, drinks not cheap and you probably won’t get a smile from a waitresses!

I would visit the sky lounge again. The tapas was amazing and really good value, however, the drink prices are extortionate. I don't mind overpaying for drinks if the service is impeccable, however, it isn't. I think the management need to increase staffing levels in the bar to provide a higher quality service to cover the prices they are charging.

I booked afternoon tea in the sky lounge for a friend’s birthday, I booked it on cyber Monday so got a great deal. The waiter was very accommodating filling our glasses with prosecco before they were empty, and asking if there was anything else we needed. The food was amazing and filling. We will definitely be booking again well worth it.

Unfortunately we didn’t have a good experience at Sky Lounge. Arrived and waited over 15 minutes to get seated, it was clear they were understaffed as I had to find someone to tell them we had a booking. Got our table and no one brought a menu, we called someone over and they didn’t come so we had to stand up and literally look for waiters to give us a menu. After 30 minutes we again had to find someone to take our order, only to find out that food had a 45 min wait time... they gave us complimentary drinks for the inconvenience. Food arrives, a dish is missing and the same gruelling activity of finding someone so that it can be addressed began again. Finally, someone came over and told us that he will inform the kitchen, when asked if we could order other dishes he said that unfortunately they weren’t taking anymore orders as they ran out of food.... didn’t even have desserts left.

All in all a nightmare of an evening, getting the bill was also an ordeal.....

Staff need to be retrained on how to provide an excellent service. You can’t charge crazy prices and then have staff with no level of customer care. Staff seemed uninterested, had to be told several times for one thing. Took 15 mins to just bring the bill as the guy was too busy chatting to his colleagues, had to be reminded again. Awful service and the staff need to learn to crack a smile.

I was disappointed with the atmosphere. No table prepared for the arrival. It was a present for a 65th birthday and no fuss made whatsoever. Bread felt stale, meat very dry. The waiter however was spot on, he made sure we always had a drink.

Experience made by our wonderful waiter, Richard. Went for afternoon tea and prosecco. Not everything advertised was available, which was disappointing as we booked weeks ago. Richard went twice to the kitchen to ask for alternatives but kitchen staff refused. Richard ended up going to the kitchen himself and made 2 savoury croissants, which were fab. Big thumbs up for Richard, not so much for the kitchen as everything on the set tea menu should have been available
