Reviewed 11 January 2012

The hotel itself is ok. Clean tidy and the staff are friendly the rooms are as you would expect in these type of hotels. Ideal for a couple of nights. The ceiling in the bathroom did look like it was about to come down though if it had one more leak from room above. One thing could not fault was the meals. They were really really good. Breakfast was ok. Now the bad points are if you look on the website today it's place has a light airy gym with a lovely looking swimming pool and jacuzzi etc. don,t believe the pics. The gym has 1 light working. The water in the cooler tasted like it been in there since the machine was installed. The kit needs help. Most of it would be deemed unsafe if inspected. Now the pool looks like it hasn't been used for years. It is just used to store junk stuff in and around it. Think you need to sort this out or amend your website. A shame really as this really let all the good things down.

Thank you for posting a review and the leisure area is due to re-open in a few weeks time under new ownership after they revamp it.......we are just tying up a few loose ends and then they will relaunch and hotel guests will get a free pass during their stay..

Pleased you enjoyed the meals.

Thanks and kind regards

Booked a 2 night stay as we were attending a Tigers game. Check in was easy and room was OK. We had been told to go out and try a Leicester curry but thought we would try the hotel restaurant as we had been travelling for a while. The starter was fine (if you like fridge cold plum sauce with hot duck), for the main we ordered slow roast pork with crackling and lamb shoulder with kofta. The slow roast pork was quite dry and tough and the crackling didn't appear at all. The kofta was not available and the lamb was not shoulder, probably leg but was tough enough to be mutton! If you drink red wine you get the choice of 3 if you drink white wine it's dry or medium. We told the room maid not to worry to service the room on the saturday but asked for the tea and coffee to be replenished, we didn't get the tea and coffee but a carrier bag full of towels sat outside our room for the rest of that day and night.

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. We have spoken to chef about your comments regarding food and hope you wil accept our apologies. Other Trip Advisor guests stayed at the same time as you and wnjoyed their meals and I am so sorry we let you down.

Our housekeepoing is contracted out to a separate company and we have discussed your point about not getting more tea and coffee with them, and they to apologise.

Lots of apologies, but we need to get it right, every time, the first time, so work to do.

Kindest regards

I would stay there again but they need to sort out little things.

A group of 4 female friends enjoyed a girlie weekend at this hotel and had a very enjoyable time. It was very good value for money, the food was good, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The bus stopped right outside the hotel and we were in Leicester town centre within about 10 - 15 minutes. We would certainly return as the town shopping was very good.

Room Tip: There are only 2 floor levels and the hotel is set back far away from the road to not cause any nois...

Glad you enjoyed and we are not far from really good shopping in the centre of Leicester and at Fosse Park. We hope soon to have a new company take on and relaunch our leisure club and it is their intention to move towards offering spa treatments......so even more reasons to stay.

Thanks for the review

The staff are friendly, the rooms are immaculate, there is always somebody to help when needed and the food is exceptional - especially the hand cut chips. Definitely plan to stay there again.

We have stayed for 5 nights and have had a lovely stay. All the staff are friendly and helpful. Special mention must be made of everyone who looked after us in the bar and restaurant - you know who you are - you were brilliant ! Our room was very good - a lovely large bed and a very comfortable sofa that made relaxing so easy ! All in all a super stay and we are already planning to return . Thank you .

Room Tip: Can really recommend an upgrade to one of the larger rooms.
