We stayed here to be in Leicester to attend my daughter's graduation from law school. This was a special time for us and the stay at this hotel was the icing on the cake. We parked in the car park at the rear of the building and we were met by a lovely member of staff who checked us in... More

We held our wedding here on 17th July 2015 and the City Rooms were excellent. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful in the run and organised everything promptly and efficiently. The day itself went smoothly, the food, service and organisation was fantastic, we couldn't have asked for more. We had a wonderful time and couldn't recommend them highly enough.

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

My husband and I held the reception party for our wedding blessing here and everyone was very impressed with how grand it all was. The rooms here are huge and clean with a very large en suite.
