“An OK place”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

My partner & I stayed here christmas night, just for B&B as we were visiting family. We arrived early at 11am on the off chance that our room may be ready & it was. The room, 29, was clean and the bed comfortable. The shower was fantastic, one of the best I have experienced in a hotel, plenty of pressure and HOT water. Some parts of the building seriously need a makeover (corridors, carpets etc) but the room was quite acceptable. The only down side in the room, & I have experienced this in other hotels as well, is that the lighting could be stronger. Breakfast was standard fare. Self selection cereals/fruit and a cooked option. The staff were friendly & if anything a little over enthusiastic - our 'full English' arrived while we were still on our cereals!! Additional pots of tea & coffee were provided promptly on request. Certainly not in the 5* league but for what we were paying, we felt we were welcomed, comfortable, fed & watered, and had value for money. Certainly a much better experience than we had two years ago at the nearby Premier Inn (see 'Arctic Experience'!)

Arrived on 30th Dec with friends for a 3 night stay. Had rooms 29 and 27. The welcome was very friendly and the staff very pleasant. The food was good and the rooms comfortable.
The New Years eve party was great fun(Casino Royal-James Bond theme). The buffet was excellent-many thanks to all concerned. We would definately recommend this hotel to friends in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with King size beds, if you like lots of space, but doubles are still comfy.

I stay away on business regularily & its fair to say the standard of hotels vary's!
I was encouraged to stay at the Fieldhead by reading the positive reviews on TA & reading between the lines of the negative reviews.
I stayed on 15 December
First - a warm welcome at reception and a quick check in.
Then the room (28) which vast! It was also clean tidy warm and comfortable - yes i liked it. The wifi worked well.
I eat in the bar the food was plentiful and good value for money - at last someone who know what a rare steak means! There was quite a new bar lady who quickly remembered what beer I was drinking always a nice touch. The beer was in good condition (GK IPA) and was inexpensive by hotel standards.
Off to sleep in a comfortable bed...then breakfast which was quickly served and was good enough.
All in all an excellent stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room 28 ---But not when I'm there!

we stayed at this hotel for the weekend on 10th Decembertill 12th December the room we had was Number 19 a very nice room, very spacious and clean. The bed was very comforable the bathroom quite large and it had a lovely size bath perfect for a soak after a days shopping in Leicester.We ate in the restaurant on both nights of our stay and the food was excellent and such good value. The staff were very friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us.There are plenty of places to visit close by and the reception staff were only too glad to answere all our questions about how to get to them .We will most certainly be paying another visit there soon.

We had a 3 night stay at the hotel from Thursday, 15th December to Sunday, 18th December in room 26. The room was clean and tidy, with a comfortable bed, but could have done with a couple of comfy chairs or a sofa to sit in for having a coffee and watching telly, instead we had to sit on the bed. We ate in the bar on the first night, and the food was great. However, the breakfast service on 2 of the 3 days wasnt brilliant.

The first morning (Friday) we went down to breakfast at 9am (served until 9 in the Restaurant, or 12 in the bar) to find everything had been cleared away - the waitress had been told everyone had already had breakfast, so she wasnt expecting us. She was very helpful, and brought things straight to our table, but there was no choice of cereals etc.

The hotel was very busy on the Friday night, (function in the bar) and when we went down to breakfast on Saturday there were no empty tables laid up. Staff were running about everywhere, but never came to lay our table with cutlery, crockery etc. When the breakfast did turn up, my egg was swimming in fat.

The hotel was busy again on Friday night, but not as bad. Some kind soul set the fire alarm off at 1am Sunday morning, and it went off again 20 minutel ater when the staff were trying to reset it - Thanks!!

Breakfast, however, was much better Sunday morning.

The staff were very helpful, and even loaned us some towels to take our friends children swimming.

Good rooms, friendly service, but breakfast could be improved.

I booked myself and partner in on the 10th dec as a birthday presant for him, we arrived to warm and friendly staff who made us feel very welcome. We stayed in room 16 which was very clean and cosy with a four poster bed which was very comfortable.... We enjoyed a nice meal and thought the prices were very resonable, also the wine and drinks were not exspensive at all. The act and atmosphere was great and we hope to go back to see some of the other acts in the new year. The staff all went out there way but the manager and reseptionist/ bar manager Kevin were exceptional. Thank you for a great stay P A Delaney.

Well,

I have just stayed at the hotel from the 12th to the 13th of December 2011 in room 5

All I would say is forgot anything negative you read on this site about the Fieldhead Hotel because it is truly one of the the most pleasant hotels you could stay in within the area.
The people who have noted less than positive comments on this site probably write to Kellogs to complain there were not enough flakes in cornflake box.

I have now been staying in this hotel regularly for the past 5 years at various times of the year and have found the staff, food, rooms and location (not that it can change the location but why would you?) to be superb. The rooms are extremely clean, very large, contain everything you need for a short stay (iron/tea and coffee making facility/flat screen tv/power shower/bath) and at a fantastic price. The food menu offers a wide and varied variety at reasonable prices which arrives quickly, and all in the comfort of a warm natural log fire, and it's only lit when it's cold....just in case the professional complainers think it's roaring in July.

We also use the Hotel for business lunches with our company and again no complaints.

This review was posted by an earlier guest and is very accurate

"The greeting was warm and helpful. The room was good and very clean the bed probably one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept on in a hotel like this. I found the staff in the bar/resturant very helpful and food was very good."

I can't name my company for obvious reasons but having travelled nearly 340 miles each trip from Scotland if I didn't enjoy the hotel I would soon have let my boss aware!

Room Tip: Go for this hotel above any Premier Inn or Travel Lodge at all costs!!!
