I stayed here with work for one night. Fortunately no longer. The room I stayed in was fine, although the TV signal wasn't great and left a fuzzy picture (which in the age of high definition is odd).
Unfortunately restaurant really lets this hotel down. The rather bland food, appeared to be pre-prepared and was well over priced (as were the beers and wines on offer). I had ordered a salad nicoise and a steak with mashed potato. The salad arrived in well under a minute after I ordered it and it contained a couple of chunks of poor quality tinned tuna and a few cheap leaves in a poor vinigarette. Not good. The steak was devoid of any flavour except the charred lines and the mash had a fake taste associated with instant potato. I decided against a desert.
The hotel isn't central to Leicester, so I was a bit suprised to be charged for parking in an area where land isn't exactly at a premium.
I'd only stay here again if I had to, but I'd probably try the Marriot over the road first.
