Days Inn Leicester Forest East M1

Reviewed August 13, 2014

Booked 2 nights online, but, had to pay for 4 nights because web site has no facility for correcting any errors you make while booking. Tried to get receptionist and manageress to correct my mistake, but, they could not do anything for me, therefor I just had to pay £110.00 for 2 nights.

Made the mistake of thinking this was off the motorway but it wasn't it was on the services, the room was ok for a short stay , basic but dated in need of decorating and new curtains. There was no air conditioning and the room was hot and stuffy we had to ask for a fan because if you left the window open you would never sleep because of the noise.

Room Tip: Dont have room 101 right next to stairs and lift

Was very impressed with reception staff, who were very helpful. Cleaners did excellent job too. Good to be in a hotel where you can bring your pooch. Very relaxing. Loved the fact that hotel was so close to a 24 hour newsagent and 4 takeaway outlets. My son loved this.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, and breakfast was nice. The room was fine, except for the fact that it was very very hot, and felt like an oven. We couldn't sleep, even though we were able to borrow a fan from reception. The hotel needs air conditioning.

On arrival I was greeted by a very friendly and helpful person at reception. The room was just the right size and had very clean towels and bedding. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. The bed was not very comfortable as I prefer a firm bed. It was a very hot day when I stayed and the window could only be opened a short way which did not help with ventilation. There was traffic noise, not surprising as it is a motorway service area, but it was not too bad at all. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a room on the second floor as it is quieter.

Excellent room (the executive double). Mini fridge was useful, with bottle of water and biscuit. Facilities really really good. Bed superb. Great blackout curtains, as we slept a lot and left really early in the morning to carry on travelling. Reception service was superb.

We won't ever stay at Days Inn again. We booked a twin room and confirmed twin booked but when we arrived it was a small double bed with a sofa futon bed which had no extra bedding provided so had to share a bed. The open window was directly above the drain for the hotel which reeked horribly all night making us feel quite sick. As there was no fan or Air conditioning we had no choice but to leave the window open and suffer the foul stench! The room was average if dated decor wise. Reasonably clean. Tea and coffee and one biscuit provided (?) Too tired to complain to desk after a long 4 hour drive from Kent coast. Not happy. Breakfast was adequate though microwave had no instructions for use so couldnt warm anything in there.
