It’s a down to earth place. Not five star (clearly), but the rooms are cozy and the service outstanding. Jai and Andy looked after me and helped me navigate Loughborough. Location is great if you like a bit of a hike into town…which I do!

We have just returned from two nights at this hotel and overall, had a lovely stay. The rooms were both very clean and comfortable and the wifi was excellent. We were unable to book a table for dinner as the restaurant was full on both nights we were there, so I cannot comment on the food. The staff were all super friendly. The only slight negative was that the air conditioning was broken in our room. The hotel provided us with a fan which was great but had the temperature outside been any higher, the room would have been uncomfortable. Hopefully the hotel will have this fixed in the near future.

This was my second visit to the Link, again to attend a function. The room was fine with a large and comfortable bed. Since i made the booking i hhave developed a blood clot which makes walking difficult and so i asked to be re-located to the groundfloor, but the reception was unable to meet my request. Went next door to The Harvester for an evening meal and returned at 10pm to find the bar closed (bearing in mind it was A Friday). After a discussion withee the receptionist/bar tender, we did manage to get a drink which was put onto my room bill. At 11pm we couldnt get another. The bar tender said it was their first night on duty..... Saturday morning breakfast was wide and varied with lots to choose from really to suit all tastes. After cereal i decided on a hot cooked breakfast. Whilst it all looked OK it had obviously been lying under a hot light for some time as the scrambled eggs were like rubber and the bacon like shoe leather. I asked for fresh scrambled eggs but when they returned it appeared it was the same eggs just stirred up. Breakfast was disappointing to say the least. The machine coffee was very weak. Evening dinner at my function was OK, not great, just OK. The food although tastey was rather on the cool side. It appeared that the staff were either very new and untrained. I believ the hotel has a connection with the university and is remote on the edge of town so perhaps thats why th staff seemed to lack experience. Parking is free and onsite. Wifi was free and good. Not a hotel i'd choose for a visit to Loughborouh but one i have to visit to attend a function.

The reception area looked lovely and the staff were attentive. The room however, was dirty upon arrival, it had someone else’s hair in the bath, toothpaste marks on the side, stains in the bedsheets, liquid marks all over the floor. The room only got cleaned once throughout my week stay (upon request) even then the standard of cleaning was awful, rubbish was left on the desk, surfaces hadn’t been wiped, all the cleaning staff did was empty the bins and put the duvet on the bed neatly (the same duvet with stains from the previous guest). You would at a minimum expect for surfaces to be properly wiped from previous guests considering we’ve just been in a pandemic. And for there to be clean sheets. The aircon which was turned off kept making loud noises throughout the night and the double bed (two single mattresses put together) were very uncomfortable.

Hi Salima, Thank you so much for taking the time to supply us with this feedback, it really is super important. I hadn't been made aware of issues that you had and obviously will address these with urgency, My team would have moved you to a different room as soon as you told them that there was an issue with the one you had been checked into, as you can see from most of our feedback our cleanliness standards are generally very high and the team are proactive and helpful so I am unsure how this wasn't rectified immediately. We would never leave laundry on beds between one guest leaving and another arriving. that doesn't happen so I can only assume that it was a reject sent by our laundry company and missed by one of our team. I would really, really appreciate being able to speak to you about this so that I can fully understand what happened, ensure that we can do something in a way of apology and make sure that any lessons learnt from this are actioned as it's not our normal standard at all. I will check for your contact details with reception and give you a call. Many thanks Samantha Gardiner Venue Manager

The hotel was not good. The bar was under stocked and the staff didn’t know what they were doing - didn’t know how to make gin and tonic. The food was beyond poor. Vegetarian food was served on the same plates as meat and when ordering vegetarian sausages for breakfast it was impossible - as they never arrived. The hotel was also hosting a rugby squad. The corridors and lounge areas were covered in muddy, smelly football boots, and men using corridors to exercise: the smell was horrid and the whole place was uncomfortable for us all. Would not recommend this place at all!

Hi, Thank you so much for your feedback, this is really valuable to us. I am so disappointed to see that you didn't enjoy your stay at The Link Hotel, We ordinarily have many, many happy guests and even one unhappy guest is something we . We are in the process of recruiting and training more team members at the moment as Hospitality has generally taken it hard over recent months and we really appreciate all patience our customers have given to any of our trainee staff during this difficult recruitment period. Following your feedback I have reaffirmed the delivery of Vegetarian food to ensure segregation and I can only apologise regarding the sausage, I'm not sure what happened there but I have asked the team to make sure they add a table number to any additional breakfast requests just to make sure they are sure where items ordered are going. We spoke to the Rugby team regarding that and it was rectified straight away as soon we this was done as everyone wants to work together to make a happy and comfortable environment for all guests staying within the hotel. Again thank you for your feedback, lessons learnt are important to us and I am always happy to hear from any and all guests during or after their stay. please do feel free to contact me on s.gardiner@welcometoimago.com or call the hotel directly if you would like to discuss this further. Many thanks Samantha Gardiner Venue Manager

Good Location with free car parking, very close to Uni campus and only a £9 taxi trip to centre of Loughborough. The room was very clean, nicely decorated with tea/coffee facilities.. Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Breakfast offered continental or full English choice.

Pleasant rooms and a good breakfast. Ideally situated, a short distance from the motorway but easy for trips into the centre of Loughborough. Good for family visits. But the thing that sets it apart is the friendly and helpful staff and good service.
