I stayed here for a business trip to the nearby university, and I thought Spindle Lodge was perfect for the occasion. The lady who greeted me - I think her name was Melba - couldn't have been more accommodating, and made me feel very welcome. The room was fine; I opted to pay more for a private bathroom but I...

I had the pleasure of staying in this delightful lodge and quite frankly, I wish I could live there! The room was incredibly hot just as I like it, and the artwork on the walls is amazing. After a thoroughly delightful evening I awoke to the best part of my trip.... The breakfast! The one egg one tomato one sausage... More

I stayed here in November 2013, due to having an interview to attend at Leicester university. Being a female travelling alone, safety was a big issue, yet I soon found out there was nothing to worry about at Spindle Lodge. It's quiet and I was able to study without disturbance; it's clean; the manager is a friendly woman; and I... More

I booked a single room for my 17-year-old son who had to be in Leicester very early in the morning for an interview at the university. He found the staff very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and the en suite facilities ideal for him. Breakfast was very good too. As a mum who was concerned about her son... More

A very friendly B&B in the University area. The interesting mid-Victorian building has limitations as to room size, but it was clean and comfortable. The owners are very honest about what it is, a 'Guest House', that caters for people visiting Leicester. It is very close to the University and appeals to (and is indeed run by) academics visiting. The... More

Stayed here when seeing Ken Dodd (absolutely brilliant at the age of 86) at the De Montfort Hall. Five minutes walk from the station and then another five minutes walk to the De Montfort Hall. In a nice, quiet, and leafy location. A good looking old fashioned building. My room could have done with a touch of redecorating but was... More

A beautiful old, solid building on a quiet, leafy street. Thick walls - so nice and peaceful. Rooms of decent size - also warm, and clean. Very old-fashioned where decoration was concerned, but, definitely in keeping with the period (why do people always seem to want cutting edge modernism...'old-fashioned' was not that long ago, and is certainly nothing to mock!)...

Clearly hasn't been updated in decades - really shabby. I could deal with the place being shabby, but the fact that it was very noisy, there was no way to cover the window to block out light and the bed was so soft that I felt like I was falling into a hole meant I had to leave. I was... More
