Stayed in the Mercure hotel on Granby st in Leicester for one night. The reception staff were helpful. The computer systems were not working when I had arrived so reception staff were a bit slow but it was completely understandable. Thanks to o2 I got a free upgrade to a priviledge room. My suite was nice. good sixe bed, very spacious. The bathroom was abit small but very modern. It was cold as I walked in but I had a heater in my room and within minutes it was warm.
The location is real good, right in the centre of Leics. Many food restauarants and takeouts close by. Clubs and bars only across the road. I stayed there on the weekend and I didnt hear a thing from the lively streets of Leics.
All in all a good hotel. I think maybe a bit over priced for what it actually offers however every now and again you may bump into a good deal like I did and in that case it was definitely worth the money.
Please note the fee for their car park if staying overnight is £5. which being in the city centre is quite reasonable.
I would recommend this hotel but not at full price. If I bump into another good deal I would definitely stay there again.
