We recently held our daughter and husband's wedding reception at the City Rooms. We would like to thank Kelly and the team for all their work in making the occasion a very happy affair. The food was beautiful and plentiful. There are only four rooms and they were large and a little tired but very clean. The staff were very... More

Booked this venue due to the location and something different from the usual. Excellant central location; friendly staff. Room clean and spacious. Initial impression very good but room seemed slightly tired; poor bed mattress, lack of lighting in the bathroom. Some noise from the town hall chimes but bearable otherwise quiet. Ideal for the odd stay.

I ended up going to two balls at The City Rooms this year, one at Kilworth House and one at Dallas Burston. The food and service at The City Rooms completely blew the other venues out of the water. They make sure they have enough staff to cover the tables to serve dinner's swiftly and do a table bar ordering... More

There are a lot of good reviews on here about the City Rooms. Its not bad but it doesn't do anything great either. Christmas do in a reasonably nice venue. Food was average - goats cheese tart starter was actually very nice, standard mass catering Turkey dinner and then a chocolate mousse for dessert. The food was hot and quite... More

Invited to a corporate Christmas lunch party. Good range of canapés with large spicy prawns taking first place. Sparkling wine and soft drinks flowed as the party gathered pace. Lunch was bruschetta - good mix of roasted peppers and tomatoes on ciabatta toast. Then traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings which was my start to the festive season. Service... More

Me and my partner stayed here last night as we both had work commitments in Leicester the following day. And wow! It's such an amazing building! And the room was beyond what I expected considering it cost only £80 for the night. The bathroom was HUGE and the room was lovely! With lots of elegant mirrors (just what I like)... More

Gorgeous building. Lovely food please do this again perhaps over Christmas? The staff were very helpful and hats off to gentleman playing the piano playing modern songs which made the ambiance perfect. He would be great for a wedding.
