“Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Stayed for two nights. Staff friendly on reception and helpful. Rooms were very basic but very clean. Mattress was very springy but overall it had everything you need for a short stay. I would stay again only a 8 minute walk to the city centre.

Located on the Leicester ring road easy access to town centre. Rooms are small and basic but clean, starting to look a little tired. Staff are friendly and car parking is free. We didn’t bother with breakfast, instead walked into Leicester centre where there is a vast choice. Perfect if you just need a clean room and a bed on a budget.

Stayed here as was out in Leicester for a Christmas party, handily it was located about 10 minutes from my place of work and close to the edge of the centre of Leicester. And the price was half of the other hotels in the vicinity. Room was averaged sized for a city centre hotel, and was quite basically done out but as was just going to sleep in the room was fine by me.

As budget hotels go was good value and as a crash pad would stay there again.

Interview at Leicesters De Montfort Uni, wanted a hotel fairly central with parking. The Campanile on the edge of the ring road was very comfortable, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, extra pillows, kettle etc, very powerful shower, hot water and extra towels on request. We didn't eat there instead walked into town about 15 minutes, food places everywhere! Interview at de Montfort, left the car at hotel as check out 12 - 20 minute walk to the Uni, we had room at the back which was very quiet seeing as the hotel is right on the edge of the ring road. Would use again, excellent value at under £40 for a twin room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back away from the road

Stayed here on the girlfriends birthday night out because it was about £40, which is cheaper then a taxi. Rooms were basic but warm, TV worked and bed was comfy. Bathroom was a bit grotty but we didn't use it except for brushing if teeth. Probably wouldn't stay again but by no fault of the hotel, it's just easier to go home.

I arrived, friendly receptionist, room 314 had not been cleaned
Or prepared. Great start. Dinner no buffet available even though it is
Key to many of the offers! Did get a free drink - voucher in the room.
Burger was fine. Table mat was dirty. Breakfast continental was ok,
No sliced cheese, just wedges of plastic cheddar or cream Cheese.
Though hot, the baguettes were large and very doughy. Overall excellent
Value for money. Silly things spoilt it. I will be back!

This is a standard basic hotel which is excellent value for money. My room was on the small side but I was travelling alone so did not need a ball room to stay in. All the facililties you expected from a city centre hotel were present. The bed was very comfertable and even though I had a room facing a busy road, it was surprisingly quite.
The continental breakfast was outstanding.
Service was excellent.
I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the carpark -- these are quiter.
