Leicester Tigers were playing at home, kick-off at 8.00pm so the wife and I decided to make a night of it and stay over. The hotel listed a Welford Road B&B special.
The hotel is an easy 20 minute walk from the grounds and near to the shopping centre (with an impressive collection of restaurants and eateries).
The room was large and airy with everything we needed for an overnight stay.
The hotels biggest asset though are the staff. Cheerful, smiling and giving the genuine impression that they really do want you to enjoy your stay.
So all in all a great stay and we will be back.....
BUT. One big criticism of the hotel the cost of the WiFi. Come on HI even my local country pub offers free internet access. The charges were eye-watering and I didn't bother connecting - especially when I can get free access in the shopping centre.
