This hotel is not the height of luxury, but there's really nothing wrong with it. Given that you pay very reasonable prices, it's certainly good value.
My bedroom was clean and comfortable. It lacks things that you might expect in a more up-market hotel, such as an in-room safe or a minibar, but at that price, what do you expect? The room was a reasonable size: I've certainly had smaller rooms in more expensive hotels.
Bathroom was clean and everything worked.
The only negative was that there was a slightly odd smell on entering the room. It wasn't a strong smell and you quickly stopped noticing it, but worth mentioning it anyway.
The receptionist was welcoming and helpful.
The hotel has free parking, and as much of it is directly outside the reception area, it's probably fairly secure.
I had dinner in the adjoining pub, which was not brilliant, but ridiculously cheap (meal for 2 was £10 plus drinks).
Be aware that this hotel is not in Leicester, so if you are visiting the city, then this hotel does not have a great location. It is in the village of Oadby, a little outside of Leicester.
There was apparently free wifi for a limited period of time, though I didn't try connecting so can't comment on how well it worked.
I also can't comment on breakfast, as I had to make an early start and they don't start serving until 7 am (which is worth noting in itself, as that's a little late for a weekday IMHO).
Anyway, all told, this was a perfectly adequate place to get a comfortable night's sleep, and would be hard to beat for the money I paid.
