This is the 3rd time of staying. Our daughter is at the Uni locally. When we come up we literally just go to the hotel to sleep and have breakfast. Shame this time that one of those vital elements was missing!! Given interconnecting room and the occupants of next door talked all night. Sound muffling was non-existent and even after... More

I booked into this hotel because it is convenient for my student son's accommodation in Leicester. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of booking in on a night when Leicester City were playing a home game at the stadium nearby. This hotel is a classic example of a site where they know they are guaranteed business by stadium users and consequently,... More

Dear JoPilsworth I am really sorry to hear that you did not have a great stay with us on this occasion. I think that your perceptions of the hotel are totally inaccurate and but I can understand that you wouldn't have the insight to the hotel with only stayed here on one occasion. Our policies are to allocate families together... More

This Holiday Inn Express is in a good location not far from the city and if you are going to the football absolutely ideal as it is outside the ground.

Stayed one night, very friendly and helpful reception staff. Rooms as good as any holiday inn express. Not the easiest hotel to find but free car parking and free wifi in room - but very complicated way to use needing to register and the log in using the longest password I've ever seen with 16 characters! But that's not too... More

Staff are happy & polite. A nice, clean & newish hotel, but not a great location. No food in hotel during evening, only option on site is "Spur" restaurant. Which is like a soulless Nandos with average everything. Inside the Leicester City FC compound, but doesn't seem to be a problem. NB been staying in Leicester for about a year... More

Minor irritations: The free wifi was quite slow and tended to drop out quite a bit. The free breakfast was uninspiring. Bland eggs, odd tasting sausages and not... More
