We Stayed here for one night in December for a friends birthday. The hotel was lovely and good value. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Amazing location right in the centre. Highly recommend. 5*s

Stayed here for one night recently whilst on business in Leicester. Very much like Leicester itself it is OK but nothing to write home about. This is an 'Express' type hotel which is comfortable and OK for a basic business trip or a cheap night away. Doesn't quite meet the standards of Premier Inn though.

I stay in Leicester very often. I must admit this was the not so nice part of the city centre.Although not terrible just a bit unloved. The hotel was blandly part of a chain. The staff on check in also work on the bar and this meant I waited for about 10 mins to check in because they were busy...

Dear intrepidworldtravell Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am sorry to hear that you did not like the decor of our bedrooms which are designed to be minimalist and modern.

I stayed for two nights in November 2016. While the room was nice and large and the bed was comfortable enough, the bathroom seemed rather dated. A few items seemed quite dated. I was unimpressed with the fact that while they had a menu in the room, they didn't offer room service. I went down to retrieve my food and...

Stayed for a quick business trip and was impressed. Central location for the shops and restaurants. The NCP car park entrance is 100 metres from hotel - come out of the Halford Street pedestrian exit and the hotel is visible to the right. A substantial car park discount is available on checking out - be sure to get your ticket...

It's a nice hotel in Leicester City. Good location. Nice service. Clean rooms. Good breakfast. Wi-Fi didn't work good in the rooms it was hard to connect and the speed was very low so if you plan to work online think to buy a pre-paid internet.

Modern, comfortable, friendly hotel. Very central and perfect for the Cultural Quarter. Reduce NCP parking yards away. Well priced with breakfast just £10 extra. Excellent choice of items and all fresh and inviting. We were late coming down so expected the dregs but it was delicious. Spotlessly clean, with a very attentive waitress clearing away quickly but quietly. Definitely one...

Taken subjectively, there is little to criticise this hotel as a budget-range convenient stop-over kind of place. I would not describe it as cosy, homely or particularly east to find by car - but, it is quiet and the food is reasonably priced. The tall rooms, with hard floors and no wardrobes made for an echoey and difficult to like...
