Castle Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Kirby Muxloe B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Stayed here on business recently on a very cold night. Everything was really nice good room, good food, beer and wine. Very handy for my meeting the next day in Leicester. These type of establishments have much more character and welcoming staff than the big chain groups have. Would be very happy to stay here again.

I booked for 1 day on a recent business trip and had a great room at the back of the hotel, great free wifi reception reached all the way, nice large bathroom and plenty of heating,
The pub did lovely food and beer and a nice breakfast.
Watch out you dont walk through the meeting room in the morning for breakfast though they get grumpy while doing their presentation

Room Tip: Back of the hotel is good

We got married at the Castle on 27/10/12 & had the most perfect day. The setting, staff and whole organisation is fantastic. We had one minor blip the evening before, but it was quickly put right & we couldn't have asked for a more helpful team. The food is exceptional & for the cost of our wedding package, it was far better than we expected. An absolutely amazing day, & the staff are a credit to the business. Louise & Andy.

Room Tip: We had the honeymoon suite. The night before the wedding I had my 3 daughters in that room with me...

Always a good stay at The Castle. Stayed here more than 10 times and always a good experience. Good rooms, iron and ironing board in all rooms, good food, good bar, good access to the motorway and great staff. Highly recommended on all fronts. It does not have Sky Sports but a 5 minute walk around the corner and there is the sports social club bar.

Room Tip: The rooms in the outhouse/anex bit at the back are good if you smoke as there is no long walk to hav...

I have stayed here a number of times whilst working in Braunstone. Even though it is effectively a pub with rooms, which as a lone female traveller I would normally avoid, the lovely friendly staff remember me and put themselves out to make me feel welcome and comfortable. There has always been a good atmosphere here whenever I have visited.

The food is great, parking is plentiful, TV is the full freeview menu and free wifi available

The castle itself is worth a trot round and the village is quite pretty with a good deli just down the road.

Good connections for M1 M69.

This is my first choice when staying in Leicester

Service is very friendly.
Bar and restaurant on location.
Rooms are just missing airconditing, while the windows can't be completly open. So a bit moisty and warm in summer.
The old Castle ruins are to be discovered while looking between the trees on the back of the garden.
Very funny and great place to stay.
Very quite, even though highways are not too far for an easy reach.

Booked through Laterooms so got the usual discount, although all seem to be offering the same rates. We liked the quiet location and easy parking and being just a couple of miles or so from the park & ride was a bonus. Only downside was that we had rather a small room, with very little spare space to move around in. Bathroom was very clean and looked as if it had been recently refurbished. Excellent TV with full set of Freeview channels. Maybe they give the smaller rooms to those who book through the discounters. Overall, quite a good hotel, but their full rates, if anyone ever pays them, look to be a bit on the high side. At least it's not one that we would never consider again.
