              Friendly staff, free upgrade to executive room, good bar

            • Couple

              Lovely hotel, staff excellent, food good, nice large bed.

              We had room 209 which faces the front of hotel on the street.I did not sleep all night with the noise from the street below, felt like I was in a war zone!. People shouting, screaming, cars hooting and reving all night. Perhapes because it was a Saturday Night. Triple glaze the windows would help. Apart from that the hotel is brillant.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              ideal for town centre

              size of room suitable for single occupation, the wardrobe made it difficult to use bed on window side, it was a tight squeeze to get passed

            • Group of friends
              6.0

              Proximity to University of Leicester, Reataurants and that it had a secure car park.

              Breakfast was poor for the price, with staff not really very friendly or outgoing. Also, confusion regarding my name at reception as they had my details incorrectly recorded.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              We enjoyed the close proximity to local restaurants, comfort of the hotel, rooms very nice to suit all needs

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              The location was good right in the centre of the city. Close to show and bars.

              Room was tiny, very noisy, and I have to say not very clean and the fittings were shabby

            • Couple
              9.6

              The staff were very kind, friendly and helpful, and the rooms were very comfortable. You could just sink into the bed, It was lush.

              I probably would have liked a bath in my room, as well as a shower, but i think if id of approached the staff about this, they would be more than accommodating into moving us.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Unhelpful nature of reception staff. Did not make us feel welcome - bit of a jobsworth type. Everybody else was fine.

            • Couple
              6.2

              Decent price for city centre hotel

              Rooms average - wouldn't class as 4*. Had to move rooms as the first one we were allocated was out the front and noisy as a Friday night. The second room was better, but both rooms didn't smell particularly pleasant and beds not very comfortable.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Nice clean hotel with lots of period charater. Good parking facilities

              Room located at front of hotel, Quite noisy art night due to the sash windows.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The breakfast and it finishes at 9.30 am bit too early for us

            • Couple
              8.8

              The breakfast was the best thing about this hotel! Lovely breakfast room, very polite staff, very good food and lots of choice. Our room was in a new section of the hotel so was modern and very well equipped. Great location.

              Our room was on top floor and lifts didnt go that far so it was a bit of a trek with suitcases up stairs and around corridors etc. Walls are paper thin in rooms aswell, but having said that we didnt have any problems sleeping.

            • Group of friends
              3.8

              The Hotel says its a 4 Star but in my opinion it is less than that. Not as good as the pictures.

            • Couple
              9.2

              Location was perfect for shopping and evening out. Good on-site parking too.

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Staff were polite and accommodating, especially when I had to leave my luggage at reception for a couple of hours while I waited on a train.

              I booked a double room and expected it to have a double bed, instead it was a bed with two single mattresses in it and wasn't that comfortable.
