“Shame about their dinners as their breakfast is quite good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

A two night stay at the hotel, I enjoyed the breakfast, it is unusual to see good poached eggs on a breakfast buffet, but their Indian buffet dinner was a disaster, totally tasteless curry, probably the worst I have ever had, at least they had the good grace to remove it from the bill. The night before I had the rump of lamb, nice lamb, slightly pink, good potatoes and green beans, but a totally tasteless jus with it, clearly the chef's speciality.

“HOW MUCH! £18 for a burger, £5 for a coffee, £5 to park”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

I have used this hotel for many years to both stay on business, for pleasure and to meet business associates for coffees, snacks, meals in the course of business.
Todays visit was a real eye opener when I arranged to meet a colleague...
Ordering coffee was a shock at £5 for a large mug (mug was what I must be to pay this).
We had our discussions and looked to order food. £14 for a club sandwich... £18 for a burger. We decided to move on elsewhere.
So, 2 x £5 to park 2 cars, 2 x £5 for 2 mugs of coffee. So a total of approx £20 for what was basically 2 coffees. Its as though Hilton do not want our type of business.
Over the years I have almost waited for seats to become available at this hotel. Today, there was barely 6 people in the whole area. At almost 1pm, I could see ONE person eating.
Surely this tells them something... Low footfall due to high prices and car parking. Low food output due to high prices. May be someone has done the maths and worked out that high prices mean you dont need as many customers to hit revenue targets, and thus need less staff and thus save costs.I wont be using it in future. Its just too expensive. Theres a lot of competition and this place just isnt cutting it anymore.
I have stayed at this hotel regularly with my wife for weekend breaks and ate lunch and evening meals in the hotel. Now, at well over £40 for lunch, club sandwich at £14, burger at £18, fries at £4, coffees £5, we wont be doing that again.
May be they just dont want this type of business anymore.

“A very tasty celebration at Flavours Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

Flavours restaurant at the Leicester Hilton Hotel is situated to the right of a very large vaulted reception come day room in what can only be termed as a relaxing surroundings that is with its international cuisine, a culinary treat that caters for pretty much every taste with a fresh menu every day (wee it was when I was there) from Rib-eye Steak, an assortment of fresh fish to vegetarian if preferred, all done to a very high standard with very good waiting staff that can cater for your every need or if you want a light lunch and cool drink then simply the Court Bar will also meet your needs.
On some occasions there is a pianist playing in the background which adds to the atmosphere and is a great venue for a special occasion. Private dinning is also an option that I noted.
Price – It’s a hotel so it may not be cheap to some pockets but at least you will be happy in the knowledge that you are paying for quality, though Sunday lunch at about £12 per head is good value at this level.
Service – As said before, they will cater for you every need and are very friendly staff.

Rate: 8/10
