Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Hotel's Favourite
I booked a stay at the Holiday Inn Leicester online between Thursday 1st June checking out on Saturday 3rd June 2023. I was on a property course with the Real life group run by Mark Harvey. A few days before my stay I found, to my horror, that the trains were not running on the way back on Saturday. Being a mathematical freak I worked out mathematically that it was cheaper to stay overnight for another night than it was to drive to Leicester and park my car in a car park. I did just that. I then phoned up the hotel This very helpful man called Shane picked up the phone. I told him that I had two bookings. One from Thursday 1st June to Saturday 3rd June and one from Saturday 3rd June to Sunday 4th June. I asked if I could merge them so I was in the same room. He asked what my name was I said “The name is Bond, James Bond.” It turned out he is a big Bond fan and he saw on the system that the name was genuine so he merged the bookings. He did ask that when I came to the hotel that I come to reception when he came on duty at 10:30 pm so he could meet the real James Bond! We had a big laugh over it! I checked in on Thursday 1st June. A very pleasant lady called Sarah checked me in with a minimum of fuss. It was so funny when I said “the name is Bond, James Bond.” I showed her my driving license and she laughed. Claire was also on reception who had a bit of a giggle as well. I then went to my room and to be polite it was clean. It was a room fit for Buckingham Palace. I then decided to get my evening meal at the hotel restaurant. I was served by this very pleasant lady called Devika – I think that’s her name but I may be wrong. She was so nice. This lady was the elite of all servers. I ordered the chilli penne. That was a meal fit for a king. The chef must have been Italian because only an Italian can cook an Italian dish as well as that! all servers. I also ordered chocolate sponge afterwards. That desert was also a meal fit for a king. After my meal I went to reception around 1030 pm and asked them to call Shane so he could meet James Bond! He had a real laugh to find that he had met the real James Bond. I stayed another two nights and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Would I recommend the Holiday Inn Leicester to anyone? Yes of course. Was it worth the money? Yes of course. Would I stay there again? If I ever have to go to Leicester again I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there. All in all, I was left shaken but not stirred.

I had a very nice time at this hotel. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. It's nice to walk into a hotel room and not have to awkwardly manoeuvre your luggage to place it somewhere. I'm sure you all know what I mean there! Staff were a delight to me, so extra points there too. All in all, would thoroughly recommend.

Visit couple of times a year with a large group of colleagues. Staff are really friendly and bend over backwards to assist us. Food is excellent and the rooms are comfy and clean. Right in the centre of town. Parking is right next door and there is plenty.

Wonderful reception by staff, they took the stress off being in a new place and made it incredibly easy to book in and get room sorted. Great food in the evening can’t fault the service and polite staff! Room was to a good standard that I’d expect from Holiday Inn. The breakfast was all great, a buffet style full English and some excellent pastries! Overall a brilliant stay! Would go again!

Been on a course with my company and we stayed at this hotel. The check in was very quick and easy and already had all our rooms ready where there was 20+ of us. The food was really good and the cleanliness in general was a high standard. Rooms were clean and the beds were good. Everything you could ask for would highly recommend!

This hotel exceeded my expectations, it was better than your typical Holiday Inn establishment, the room was spacious and very clean, the lobby area was clean and welcoming, and the food was very good. The location is very convenient for the train station, 10-15 min walk. I would stay again.

Perfect city centre location, easy walking distance, less than 5 minutes. Very friendly and helpful staff. Despite being on a busy roundabout there is no traffic noise. Stayed here several times and never had any issues. Parking is at Highcross Rooftop and you get a discount at the hotel. It’s only a few minutes walk away. Rooms are always immaculate, excellent breakfast with friendly staff.
