Reviewed June 15, 2013

visited the hotel evening time on 09/06/13 as family member was staying there for a number of nights. very reasonable rates through late rooms, ample parking, reception staff were excellent, very friendly, helpful and efficent. The room was very clean and of a decent size with nice bathroom.feedback from family member was that a good nights sleep was had on a comfortable bed and it was quiet even though next to the M1 and staff were welcoming every night upon return to the hotel. Well worth consideration if require just a room for the night.

Room Tip: If you need an iron and ironing board ask at reception and one will be provided

Was really surprised with this hotel. Just booked it as i was visiting friends in the area. Ok, so my reservation wasn't in the system but the receptionist sorted this out asap, all they needed was my email confirmation to prove i had booked it. Friendly staff, Clean rooms, close to the centre of Leicester. Fab price too! :)

Room Tip: A room away from the truck park as it can be a tad noisy

This was a last minute booking the day before arrival and cost 29.95 GBP. Absolutely fantastic price. Arrived at staff handover time (late at night) so waited a couple of minutes for assistance.

Room was very clean. Easy to park and register car on the touch screen system. Looked like brand new towels and very happy to use this hotel again. I had stayed here a number of years ago and wasn't impressed, they certainly have improved.

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from motorway side if possible.

Excellent 2 night family room booked for £50 with offer code '24fifty' - most definitely the best price bargain around with FREE car parking on site and Waitrose store as well as Starbucks next door.
Good quiet nights sleep and unbeatable for the price!

The staff were very friendly and the room was surprisingly quiet considering it is situated at a service station. The room was very clean and definitely a non smoking room. We didn't have a problem with smokey corridors either like some reviewers. We travelled as a family and had a good sized room.

Clean and tidy room, friendly staff, free parking, good value for money. Our room was next to HGV park and although they didn't disturb us I think that they would have woken light sleepers. You wouldn't want to spend a fortnight here but one or two nights is fine.

Room Tip: Away from lorry park if a light sleeper
