Adequate wifi access which is great. Clean and snug. Parking if booked in advance. Had room top of building. Private bathroom was very nice. Good recommendations re restaurants close by... More

Spend a night for university business - ideal location for the main campus. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating (thank you, Melba!) - the breakfast time (normally 8-9am) has been moved backward to 7.30 just to allow for an early meeting start. The twin room was clean and comfortable, while preserving the vintage atmosphere at the same time... More

Spent a couple of nights there on a business trip. Good location, small but clean. The landlady is the asset: she serves fresh and good breakfasts and is always available for a good tip about the city.

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
