We attended a family wedding where the ceremony and wedding breakfast were held at The City Rooms and we had a lovely day. The room where the wedding in was beautiful and a perfect size for the number of guests (around 120) and the staff were well organised and attentive. The meal was nice and served to each table in...

A very convenient hotel with rare free city centre parking. The room was large and clean and the bathroom was huge. The staff could not have been more helpful. The only downsides were no lift (and a lot of stairs) and a very low although comfortable bed.

My husband and I booked this hotel as we wished to be part of King Richard III send off. We had to call upon our arrival in Leicester as it was impossible to find (very subtle signage outside) and we ended up driving round in circles for ages! Parked in tiny car park round the back - again, impossible to... More

The room was exceptionally spacious as was... More

Building is very impressive. High ceilings and painted decor. Meal and table service were very good. Only down side was some of the glasses on the table were dirty and the down stairs bar is far to small.

Stayed for one night ,good value, fantastic building. This is primarily a wedding venue and has only 4 rooms.Staff were great and very helpful and has added bonus of parking.Can be a bit noisy during the night (town hall clock chimes all night), but would stay again

We recently held an all day conference at The City Rooms. The staff were incredibly helpful in the run up to the event, and their professional support continued until the event had finished. The main hall is a fantastic location to spend a day: a welcome contrast to many more stuffy and boring hotel conference venues. Thank you City Rooms.
