Stayed here for one night and enjoyed the experience. The room was clean and tidy. Staff friendly and room reasonably priced. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Only gripe was that if you opened the curtains, the whole car park can see you getting unchanged. Possibly could do with a screen of some kind.

I regularly stay at the Forest Rise Hotel, as I stay up in Loughborough for work. I find the rooms, clean, spacious and well fitted. I also find the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel is near to town and near to the University, so perfectly placed for most things you might be doing in Loughborough.

My last review commented that the hotel was lovely, but the breakfast service was terrible. This visit things were much improved with attentive service at breakfast. The room this time was slightly smaller, but it was clean, modern, and the bed was very comfortable. There is a slight problem with traffic noise - it was a hot night and there... More

I stayed here when I was attending training at Loughborough University for work. One of the things that stood out for me when booking was that is was one of the few hotels in the area that had free parking. When I arrived the lady on reception was very friendly and showed me to my room. Although the rooms are... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in the 'new part' of this hotel. Was by myself, but given a room with the most comfortable double bed ever to be found in a hotel ( and trust me I travel and stay in some good hotels ). Nothing was too much trouble - bedside light bulb blew, I mentioned it on my... More

Just spent one night as we were visiting the Grand Central railway. The hotel staff were all warm and friendly, the rooms spotlessly clean and well furnished and the breakfast was superb. Nice to go somewhere that's not an annonymous chain and where staff really want to enjoy the experience. Thanks, we'll be back.

This hotel does what it says on the tin! The prices are moderate and it delivers above the hotels in this area. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It is very well placed for Loughborough town and the university.

Deceptively large property... Stayed for business 3 nights. Rooms not huge, but sufficient and clean. TV's are small and sound quality is less than you would expect. Handy for the town centre (5 mins walk). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Full English breakfast is immense. For me the clincher is a strange one... Had a smoke outside one morning... More
