Stayed here in August 2014 as part of a Stay Play Explore package. £179 for 2 nights, family of four with breakfast and 3 activities seemed very reasonable. Hotel is located in the middle of nowhere so transport is essential. Hotel facilities are very good with a health club including pool and gym. We did not use the health club... More

Had to pull bed out to find children's toy, and found condom packets, apart from that the room was nice. Breakfast was like feeding time at a zoo, it was mayhem food wasn't topped up enough, clearly couldn't cope with the demand, breakfast areas dirty. There is a children's games room, one Wii and a few board games with pieces... More

The staff on arrival are very welcoming and the room I was given was very spacious and clean and did have free wifi which I had no problems connecting to. The hotel was very busy with most of the large number of function rooms being used. This however did not... More

I booked this hotel as a surprise for my husband, cannot believe how disappointed we are. Paid £133 the night for a stained bed, furniture in a disgusting state, dirty bathroom and wall paper hanging off the walls . Definitely the worst hotel we have EVER stayed in. Have taken photographs and am sending them with a letter to the... More

Been a few times now the last time was about 5 years ago and we still found it to be brilliant and very good value for money, staff were great and I would recommend a meal in the bar. Stayed in an executive room with 2 beds which was very clean, tidy and spacious.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hinckley Island Hotel is a four-star hotel in the historic county of Leicestershire. In the heart of the Midlands, this stylish and contemporary hotel has 363 bedrooms, including 19 premium rooms and four suites, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Yet attractions such as Twycross Zoo, Rockingham Castle and The National Space Centre, are all nearby. Close to the M6, M69, M1 and A5, it's easy to get to from all over the country, yet the rural setting, indoor pool and solarium mean it's easy to get away from it all. Dine on European style food in The Brasserie or The Conservatory restaurants. ... more   less
