Easy to find with ample parking in the NCP besides. Make sure you get it stamped at reception. Warm welcome and we were in the room within minutes. Needed a quick check in after a 5 hour drive. The bar seemed busy in a good way but we didn't use it. Short walk to the shopping and restaurants at Highcross... More

I had a king size executive room which I shared with my partner. The bed was comfortable and we both slept very well. Great Value for... More

I just wanted to say how great the staff are including Donna and Mikyler who were in restaurant, Carla behind the bar and Amitt in reception. I stay regularly and they alway seem to go out of there way to make myself and all other guests welcome. There are a credit to the holiday inn group.

Stayed for 1 night whilst away with business, fairly easy to find although you could miss the entrance if you are not careful. Reception was nicely decorated and the check in process was easy enough. I had a room on the 7th floor which was okay but badly in need of an facelift. The a furniture was sold old and... More

The customer service at Leicester was exceptional, especially from Madan, Lil and Carla, I would name other members of staff but unfortunately I didn't get them all. It's a child friendly and lovely hotel and all of the staff were very engaging. It made my brothers birthday a really lovely night...highly recommended

Booked a short break away to visit friends. Was thoroughly surprised when myself and partner arrived at the hotel. The parking is an additional fee of £10.00 but is situated next to the hotel. The greeting was warm and friendly from the receptionist and the double room was huge. Bed nice and comfy and the bathroom had its own bath/... More

I've been to this hotel several times over the years but it's been 2 years since my last stay so was a little worried to read some of the latest reviews however I was greeted in the same friendly helpful manner and as always the room was very clean and tidy to a good standard. The only thing I didn't... More
