A group of us had a fantastic time staying at the Hotel on 17th Aug, for a Hen party. One of the rooms we used was the mini suite to have an afternoon pampering session. Alison at the Hotel was great, helping us to decide which room was best for the group, giving us a good deal and providing all the information I asked for. All the staff were friendly and professional, rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast was excellent with a really good choice of continental and full English items. Good value and a great time had by all! Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I stayed here for one night only. We got the room for a reduced rate (£55 for the night) as it was a Thursday night.
Pleasant and quiet location just off London Road and a short walk to the city centre and shopping areas.
Room was of a good size, nicely decorated with bathroom, TV, tea & coffee making facilities, comfortable bed. Free wifi (which you would normally pay a fortune for at a Travelodge). Room was quite warm but there was a fan provided.
We didn't eat there and so cannot comment on the food.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Free and ample car parking. Plenty of power outlets in room for those who need to charge up laptops, phones, etc. Nice, spacious bathroom.
I would have given this hotel four points but have decided to give it three, simply because the bar was closed at 10:30 hours - a ridiculous time for a bar to close in this day and age. Also would not pay the going rate of around £90 for this level of accommodation

Dear Outrageous
Many thanks for the four star scores for all the elements of your stay, the bar can get very quiet in August which may be why it closed early. Drinks are available for residents from the night porter after the bar closes on a room charge basis.

We had booked an Executive Double Room ( room 301) ,end of building, top floor. UK had experienced 3 days of 27 C so room was a sauna. We had to ask for a fan! Room had only one window (. Opened only 3 cm ) We asked to be put in another Executive Suite however this did not seem possible. Raj, the duty manager managed to put us in a double room on the ground floor where we stayed for the 2 night quite comfortably. On our departure , Steve, the duty manager charged us for our Executive Suite. I waited some time to see if there would be an adjustment due to the " room " change. He just said that was all OK. I then put it to him that there would be a difference in tariff! Yes a hasty re- adjustment of the account, some 40 pounds with his female assistant making a quick retreat to the safety of the back officer
It's a pity as it's not a bad hotel , Staff at breakfast were great especially Naicho ( sorry if the spelling is wrong)
Not the way to go , RIPPING THE CUSTOMER OFF

Room Tip: Do not stay here in hot weather, do not get an Executive Suite 301, 302, end and top of building

Dear Ed
Steve is very embarresed about this error he has explained to me this morning that the change was on the shift report, but that he had neglected to make the adjustment before you arrived to check out by which point he had forgotten all about it. He is very sorry for this, and I'm very sorry that you interpreted this as a "rip off". We wouldn't still be here as a family business after almost 80 years (2014) if we tried to rip people off.
Thank you for your kind comments about the rest of your stay, and about Nacho who is a service super star in our eyes.

We booked this hotel because we had tickets for a concert at De Montford Hall. We ate in the hotel bar and then strolled to the venue only about 5-10 mins walk.
We stayed in a lovely room with chic new decoration. There was a huge and comfortable bed.
There is a free carpark at the rear of the hotel.
The breakfast was a bit of a let down but overall we would recommend this hotel.It is just off New Walk a leafy pedestrian road that leads straight to the heart of Leicester. We enjoyed our stay.

Only visiting the area and chose to stay at the Belmont after checking out TripA and hotels and B&Bs in the area near to where I wanted to visit friends!
The Belmont was easy to book direct on-line on hotel website. What type of room I wanted, lots of options as I was solo this time. I could pay for my breakfast which was £10 on line in booking too. So all in all I chose double room single occupancy and two mornings for breakfast. Prices meet my needs which I thought very good.
Check in so simple as I had booked and paid before. My room was lovely and big, and quiet. Room super clean and bathroom too. All brillilant. The buffet breakfasts in the morning was more that adequate, it was great, continental and full english, what more could you want. The service of the breakfast staff was fantastic. Efficient, friendly and helpful and fast.
Thanks Belmont I will be sure to return again and will recommend to friends.

I live in Eastbourne on the South Coast, and a friend of mine and I decided to go to Leicester for a couple of days to "do" the Richard lll exhibition at the Guildhall and the Bosworth Battlefield. We booked a standard twin room via their website for two nights (23rd and 24th July) and found the room to be in excellent order overlooking the pleasant "new walk" which leads to the city centre. The room was big with its own en suite, which was clean, and the beds were comfortable, ie not hard! Lovely white towels for use, hairdryer, ironing board all in situ. It also had a small writing desk with mirror and a settee in it. The hotel benefits from its own car park, so no on street parking to worry about while you're in the town. We didn't eat in the main restaurant, but we could have done and they had two extra bars including a bar food area. The breakfast was excellent, and presented well with white linen tablecloths and silver cutlery etc. Staff very friendly which makes a huge difference. We will definitely come back to this hotel again, even if we come by train as the station just 5 to 10 minutes walk away. I recommend it.
