I'm afraid to say that I would not stay at the Holiday Inn Leicester again. It was surrounded by a ring-road and even though we stayed on the top floor the room was very noisy. The room was clean but dated and in need of renovation. In some positives, it was reasonably priced, the health club was nice and my... More

The last time I stayed in this hotel was on my hen night - 14 years ago! Although we do not live far from Leicester at all, we decided it would be a nice treat before Christmas and we made the right choice. although there were parties happening the noise didn't affect our stay, the room was comfortable and the...

Stayed with my family for three nights for my wife's graduation. Very child friendly hotel especially staff. Clean room. Good breakfast and meals. Location is great too as there are plenty of restaurants five minutes away. Shopping centre is close too. About 40 minutes walk will take you to the National Space Centre.

Spent one night in hotel as we were celebrating our granddaughters graduation, and it was a very pleasant stay. Large very clean room, comfortable bed and very welcome air-con as it was a very hot day/night. Great location with very easy walk into town centre and university. Very helpful staff and a great breakfast the next morning.

Location excellent, large hotel, usual facilities. WiFi and parking extra, breakfast £10.95(!) - for a buffet. Staff OK. Stayed 3 nights. Weather was hot, no a/c, couldn't open the window due to road noise (7th floor). Sink plug faulty (I should have reported it).

I stayed here on a work trip, whilst I think the hotel is in a fantastic location and facilities are good there is something lacking. Check in was fine and the receptionist I dealt with was down to Earth and friendly. When I got to the room I was dissapointed, I felt it was a little dated and I had... More
