We stayed here for my daughter to attend an open day at the University. It is brilliantly situated for visiting the University or the East Midlands Conference Centre. The hotel is very new and everything is still shiny and very clean. The wifi is strong and free. The beds were comfortable and everything worked well in the room. We ate dinner and breakfast in the brasserie on the ground floor. The hotel was quite full and service at dinner was a little slow - we had to ask three times for some water - but the food was very good and reasonably priced. The breakfast in particular was excellent value at £8.50 for the full cooked breakfast and £5.50 for a continental option. This compares extremely favourably with many other hotels, particularly for the continental option where you could find yourself paying just as much at a coffee chain for a cup of coffee, a croissant and a banana. The staff were friendly and helpful - many appeared to be students, particularly one waitress at breakfast who saw our open day papers and talked to my daughter about the University and her own course.
