Had a 1 night stay in a family room here the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice to with a decent selection of items.

I was not expecting much as this is an Express but I was wrong! Large well equipped rooms, a comfortable bar, very good breakfast (included in price) and charming very friendly reception staff. This hotel is great value. It is not very central but very convenient (opposite) the King Power Stadium. The Spur restaurant is next door serving steak, burgers,... More

We booked here because we were going to the Leicester City friendly against Werder Bremen (Leicester won 1 - 0, which was a bonus)! It's an "Express" so we did not expect to be waited on hand & foot. Our double room (217) was clean, spacious and well equipped. The staff on Reception (who also man the bar) were charming,... More

Last minute booking to see our friends new granddaughter. Good sized clean rooms, pretty decent breakfast included - all in all well worth the money.

The hotel it's self is clean and presentable. The location is close to the city centre but in a poor area. Our stay was spoiled by a large group of very loud children (I think they were a kids football team) the adults accompanying them didn't seem to care or be able to keep them under control.

For somewhere to stay just for a night, this is fine. It's clean, the rooms are good, plenty of towels and a reasonable breakfast. I found it hard to criticise. One small point was that the toiletries ran out quickly and there wasn't a spare loo roll. I would stay here again.

This Holiday Inn is a good, average hotel. The sheets, room is clean. The breakfast is alright, the staff is professional. Best thing for me was that the hotel was quite close to the university of Leicester.

Hotel itself is a good basic hotel, rooms clean and functional, staff polite and efficient. The breakfast which I think is always included in the price is a bit basic but adequate.location is a little outside the city centre so a 15 minute walk if you want to right into town.
