Stayed here on Sat night 16-May. The proprietors could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Our room + ensuite was clean and everything was functional. It was quiet at night. The Bradgate is a very good value-for-money hotel, and I would be happy to stay there again.

The bar and waiting staff made my party of 25 people feel incredibly uncomfortable and unwelcome. They were rude and abrupt and seemed to act as though they were not happy for us to be in the restaurant, although I'm certain they were happy to take our money. We were seated upstairs which had no customer toilets, but had staff... More

I was staying here because i had a concert at the curve theatre and i was looking for something reasonable as i was only using it as a place to sleep afterwards and was leaving early the next morning. It also was a benefit that i could have breakfast included as i didn't know the area well enough to find... More

Old fashioned hospitality, clean rooms, comfortable mattress, coffee and tea making facility, brand new TV all I needed for a comfortable stay, whilst attending a conference at Leicester University. The staff are genuine Leicester folk who know the area. They will happily direct you to the best eating spots and shops. The other plus is that the Bradgate Hotel really... More

We'd stayed here previously about 15 years ago, and looked more recently on a visit to Leicester but it was booked. This time we rang a week or two in advance. If you do want to stay, do book well in advance, because they have so many regular guests there are very few spare rooms. The management is very welcoming... More

I am a 20 year old female who went to stay at The Bradgate alone for two nights whilst in Leicester on work experience. I had never been to Leicester before and was a bit apprehensive but the staff and "live-in" guests at the Bradgate made me so welcome and were incredibly helpful. I felt very safe and really enjoyed... More

I only stayed for one night, but I must have had a sixth sense as I rang the hotel to confirm my booking to find that it didn't exist. The guy left in charge said the woman who owns it had changed books and hadn't moved my booking over! As it was they had a spare room available and only... More

Had a wonderful experience at the Bradgate. Was at an archaeology conference for the week and spend five nights at the establishment. The proprietors bent over backwards to make my stay the best possible--really felt like I was part of the local community when staying there. Would highly recommend the Bradgate to anyone who wants a truly English Inn experience.

Leicester is where I was born and brought up but I no longer have family here to stay with, I first stayed at the Bradgate in 2010, after a bad experience elsewhere, and again in 2011, The hotel is clean and comfortable with friendly staff and a good breakfast if required. It is close to everything one needs including Leicester... More
