I found my room to be clean, tidy and good value for a one night stay. No fuss or frills. Just what I needed.

Lets start with the bad: Make sure you travel with people who don't mind seeing you naked or waiting outside the room whilst you shower because the shower door is almost see through, enough to see nipples and where certain hair is and there is a hole cut out in the door just in line with the groin area. All of us stayed in rooms for 3, so as for single or double rooms, I've no idea if it is the same with those shower cubicles.
The toilet has no lock so there were some "accidents resulting in blindness" upon seeing room mates defecating.
The heater will switch off around 3am or in the middle of the night, so we woke at around that time when the room got cold.
They gave us 2 towels instead of 3 and that was the case with every single other room we rented (about 15 rooms in total)
The place requires you to have a car otherwise it's hard to get to and fro the city centre.

Positives: For 3 people, the room was good value and clean.
The walls were not that thin so your conversations could not be heard by any of the rooms nearby.
The sink, toilet and shower were in 3 separate parts so there was a cupboard like room for the toilet, the sink was inside the room and the shower cubicle was in a separate glass partition so all 3 of us could do separate things at once.
In the kitchen attached to the reception they allow you to microwave food which has been left in it's original packaging (eg ready meal from Sainsbury's). This was helpful, unless you wanted to go to the KFC next door to eat.

Room Tip: Just be aware of the see through shower doors and cut out hole in the door that's in line with t...

Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts about your recent stay at Etap Leicester.

Etap hotels are a fairly new concept to the Uk and are not one that everyone is familiar with therfore the layout of the room different as well as the product concept. I'm pleased that you found the hotel to be of good value for money, functional and practical rooms. I will relay your kinds comments to the relevant departments accordingly.

We appreciate all feedback very much and the team and I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Situated on a service area at the junction of A6 and A46 but also accessible by bus for people arriving by public transport. Adjacent to KFC and Le Petit Four; snacks also available at the nearby filling-station shop as well as from machine inside the Etap.
Efficient reception, clean rooms with small shower, comfortable bed. Some traffic noise in the morning but no more than would be expected - I doubt if I would have heard it if I had closed the window..
Breakfast available at a reasonable price (and even cheaper if you book it in advance); an all-you-can-eat affair but I would have preferred a hot alternative at a higher price.
