The hotel is used to regularly accommodating a number of high profile musicians following performances at nearby venues such as First Direct Leeds Arena and O2 Academy.

Julian Troup, head of UK hotels at Colliers International, said: "It’s not often that hotels in the centre of Leeds come to the open market, so we expect to see a great deal of interest from a wide range of potential buyers eager to acquire a piece of real estate together with a successful hotel business in one of the UK’s fastest growing cities.

"Leeds city centre is set to be transformed over the coming months and years as plans for the former Yorkshire Post newspaper site come to fruition – the new mixed-use scheme will act as a gateway to the city centre and The New Ellington Hotel can only benefit from its close proximity to such a transformational scheme for the city."
