Just got back from a one night stay at this hotel and we can honestly say we can't pick a thing wrong with it. From turning up in the car park and cliff carrying our bags to the room to leaving this morning after the tasty full English breakfast Jayne cooked. We were even given a lower floor room without...

I stayed at the Leicester while in the area playing golf. Fantastic welcome from Cliff when I eventually arrived late, nothing was to much trouble for him even though I couldn't check in till 9:30pm. I stayed in room number 1 which was an en-suite single, beautifully decorated, comfy bed and some great little touches in the room, the en-suite... More

Checked in today at this little gem. Cliff made us feel welcome immediately upon arrival. Room like a boutique hotel right down to the bottle of water and mints. Out for evening meal at the Greek restaurant just around the corner. Will continue review later. So far excellent.

The rooms were individually decorated and were absolutely spotless. There were lots of drink choices in the room as well as biscuits. Toiletries were available in the bathroom... More

This was our second stay at The Leicester and since our last visit a year ago there has been a change of ownership. The previous owners were a hard act to follow but Cliff and Jayne have stepped up to the mark and none of the high standards set have been compromised! Cliff is a great host and cannot do... More

Loved this B&B couldn't be bettered, will always stay here again. Very near the theatre, and all restaurants on Lord St. Rooms immaculate and breakfast yummy. A great feature was that they would lay a table on in the dining room if you ordered a take-out from local restaurants; how goods that! This was a first and a great idea... More
