A perfect venue that offers accommodation for the bridal party for the wedding eve , this city centre based building offers a central wedding, dining,and entertainment room with additional reception rooms for extra activities. Very efficient and friendly staff could not be more... More

Visited here for a funeral 'wake' . The buffet was excellent as were the staff who were synthathetic but attentive. The venue although being in the centre of Leicester seemed miles away, almost countryside . Would recommend if you want to go through the doors and enter "your world"

What a find! Quirky old building - basically a conference centre but it also has a few hotel rooms. We particularly appreciated the fridge, pint of fresh milk, orange juice and breakfast cereal. There is no catering on the premises, but the location is so central it doesn't matter at all. The only down side for the less fit is... More

Hello Sue and Phil, Thank you for finding and choosing to stay with us, it was a pleasure to have you. We do have a lift for customers, but this only goes up to the first floor Ballroom and not all the way up to the bedrooms which are on the second and third floors. Thank you for reviewing us,...

Excellent location and huge rooms. Very grand building and whilst some areas need updating it is a very high quality hotel. The hotel is in the centre of Leicester so handy for plenty of attractions. If you are looking for something slightly out of the ordinary then this is the place

A last second change of plans meant I needed a place to stay for my partner and I a few weeks ago. We checked out a few comparison websites (as well as your standard hotel chains) and were quite dismayed at the prices for a last minute booking. The City Rooms popped up as the cheapest option, pictures were nice... More

Booked this venue due to the location and something different from the usual. Excellant central location; friendly staff. Room clean and spacious. Initial impression very good but room seemed slightly tired; poor bed mattress, lack of lighting in the bathroom. Some noise from the town hall chimes but bearable otherwise quiet. Ideal for the odd stay.

I ended up going to two balls at The City Rooms this year, one at Kilworth House and one at Dallas Burston. The food and service at The City Rooms completely blew the other venues out of the water.
