We were here for a stag weekend so we needed something East Mids centric for the day and City Centre central for the night, this matched the brief excellently. What a pleasant surprise this place was, friendly staff, helpful, the rooms and public areas were clean and up to date. Parking was quite cheap and located in an NCP right... More

A perfectly adequate business hotel, Well placed a short walk from restaurants, bars and shopping so good for city visits. Parking is in an offsite, but just over the road, NCP car park and I though was a steep £10 per day. A bit awkward to drive to.

This has become our 'team hotel' for our annual event in Leicester, one of a series across the country. As ever the staff are top line, with great service and support from Manpreet, Carla and Raihan. Manesh did another fantastic job providing our buffet dinner on the Saturday night. The trainee, Asha, did a fine job at Reception. Checkins and... More

We has a fine stay at the Holiday Inn, We were there for the Richard 111 procession and asked for a room at the front which we got. Room was clean and spacious,. Breakfast was excellent. The tea/coffee tray was mean with not enough for two people,, The shampoo etc was too mean for two people but corrected by our... More

Came to see Richard III with a DBB booking, but he was hidden on Maundy Thursday! So consoled ourselves with the pool, sauna, and jacuzzi. I unfortunately had a tumble and cut my hand, but staff were great at getting me to A&E for stitches. When we returned the restaurant was shut, but the bar staff made sure we were... More

Booked a last minute 2 night break with Superbreaks. Fantastic value. Bit of confusion at check in but we received vouchers for free drinks for 10 min inconvenience. Ate in the restaurant on first night. Food was good as was the service. Breakfasts was first class, impressed by the your own pancake machine. Room was immaculate and contained everything we...

Didnt get chance to use the leisure facilities, but stayed here for a city centre wedding. Extremely helpful staff giving us two lots of directions. Room was very clean and comfortable with a HUGE bed! All in all I thought good value for money when including breakfast - we sat for 3 courses including fresh fruit and yoghurt, then full... More

After reading previous reviews, I did not know what to expect: some were positive, some were not. Well, I'm on the positive side. The room was spacious, clean and not 'tired'. Toiletries in the bathroom are of very good quality (aloe soap, bath gel and shampoo from Gilchrist&Soames). I agree: breakfast is a bit pricy (I already knew so went... More

Been before when other options full, and for the same reasons we had to stay again. Staff v friendly, check in quick, location and car park great; everything else - average-poor. Decor needs updating; it looks dated and worn and smells fusty in spite of lots of cleaning product smells layered over. Hallway carpets stained. Grouting in bathroom stained. Headboard... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times since our daughter started at DMU in September. The public areas are typical of a holiday inn and are perfectly fine. Yes, it is very tired and very unappealing from outside but it has a car park adjacent which is very handy and the holiday inn is the only city centre hotel... More
