Nice, centrally located hotel. The breakfast was very good. Our room and the rest of the hotel were spotlessly clean. The views over Leicester were a bit industrial but the room was of a good size and was comfortable. Excellent staff who were all very pleasant and helpful. A good place to stay for business and pleasure.

After that, though it was sort of downhill. Room service dinner was a disaster with one thi g wring after another and breakfast was mediocre. Service was sort of OK but if one is working in an hotel in England it is important to understand and speak enough English to deal with guests' requests and respond intelligibly. AND TEA! It... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for business and found the following: paid for internet - an absolute rip off, no plug sockets by the bed - was this place built before people relied on mobiles for their alarms? Rare steak was at least cooked medium, colleague had oil spilled on his jacket, breakfast poor in terms of selection available.... More

The breakfast buffets and the room service was well above what I expected. My only complaints are: 1. You have to pay for WIFI. 2. The... More

Hotel situated on a roundabout in Leicester, so due to heavy traffic blocking the enterance, it took 10 minutes to get into the carpark. Lots of parking, chargable and the carpark is very, very tight in space. Check in was fine, reception areas look clean and modern. When you step out of the lift onto the fourth floor its like...

We stayed in 2 rooms for 2 nights to attend a wedding. Location is very central and convenient to the Highcross shopping centre, restaurants and entertainment areas. The rooms were very spacious, clean and well appointed. The biggest disappointment with this property was the absolutely exorbitant internet prices. £5 per hour of £24 per day.... Which for 2 days was... More
