Reviewed 2 September 2010

We stayed at the Belmont for 1 night with 2 young children in August 2010. It was one of the few hotels offering Family rooms at an excellent rate which also included Breakfast.
The room was perfect and breakfast the following day was delicious and fresh.
Location was also great, within walking distance from the city centre.
I would recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

The service was exceptional from the dining room to the registration desk. Our requests were promptly and graciously met. The location was great-quiet but convenient to universities, restaurants, city center, museums, and churches.
I wish we had chosen a somewhat larger room but the one we had was roomy and comfortable, very clean, and everything in working order.The temperature outside was warm but we had a breeze and a fan.

Stayed at the Belmont Hotel on July 13th & 14th.
We were there for my daughters graduation from Leicester University.
The hotel is right on New Walk which was close to both the university and the train station.
The staff were very freindly and helpful. the English breakfast and dinner in the dining room was delicious. The rooms we had were large and clean

I only live about 5mins from this hotel but my friend was having her wedding here, and since it was going to be all day my boyfriend and I decided we'd stay at the hotel. We booked an executive room with breakfast for £109. After reading some of the reviews on here i was apprehensive about staying. Although there was no need to be!

We got a nice welcome and swift check in, we were allocated room 135 and it was absolutely beautiful! It was completely spotless with views over New Walk. Although this hotel is located in the city centre, you wouldn't think it. Yes the floor boards in the corridor squeaked but that did not bother us at all. The wedding party also stayed there and thought their rooms were also nice. The breakfast was nice with a huge variety.

The wedding was amazing, although the air con in the Rose Room where the ceremony was held kept going off but there was a member of staff on hand to sort this so it wasn't really a problem. The sit down meal and evening reception was also held in this room and it was dressed beautifully.

One thing i would mention is that there probably could have been more staff at the sit down meal as there were a lot of guests and it took a while for the starters to come round to all the tables, they missed out my boyfriends starter and started on all the other tables. They could do with a drinks trolley because when someone requested rose wine they had to go into the kitchen to get it and went back in to get the white and red and the bottles would run out half way around a table so they'd have to go back for a new one so it took a while for the drinks.

Jamie's bar is lovely and the drinks are of average price. It was also nice to sit outside and enjoy a drink too as it was a hot summers day.

I would recommend this hotel to a friend, we loved it that much we are going again in 4weeks!!!

The Belmont is in a good location close to the station an next to the leafy New Walk which is a pleasant route into town.

The first impression is of a well maintained group of townhouses with modern signage, however that impression is not sustained inside. It appears that there has been an attempt to make this a boutique hotel with modern furniture and contemporary pictures on the wall. This is juxtaposed with cheap 1970's furniture and fake flowers and it simply doesn't work - it just looks terrible.

I was in an executive double room though what made it "executive" eluded me - the view of the carl park? The hideous chintz? The shabby sofa? The dripping taps in the bathroom? A small badly positioned flat screen TV does not make for an executive room or retrieve it from the air of b&b that pervades.

Breakfast is served in a dining room which continues th unfortunate decor. Now, when there is waiter service and cooked breakfast is ordered from a menu I rather expect it to be prepared when I order. A "full English" arriving within two minutes of ordering tells me it is all out of warming trays, an not very warm ones at that - really unpleasant and cheap ingredients badly cooked.

One has to remember this is a three star hotel and if you go in with that expectation and ignore the hotels website and it's protestations of modernity, this place is tolerable.

Dear Dickie
Many thanks for your review of the hotel, which once again highlights the juxtapostion of the hotel. We are a family run independant business and over the last three years have worked our way through an extensive program of refurbishment (Which is why our website looks so nice) although as your review highlights we have rooms still to do before the our room stock is completely consistent. Tough trading has limited the speed of our progress in recent months although we are focused and committed to moving forward asap. This however is no comfort to you who was looking forward to a big TV, more modern style accomodation and free Wifi (2 hours free at the Belmont). I apologise in particular that you think we sold you something you didn't get, and hope you can appreciate how difficult it is to do so much in a short time, other members of Tripadvisor have recognised the effort as our rating has steadily improved by more than 20 places during the time we have been investing and improving customer service at the hotel.
I will certainly pass your comments regarding breakfast to my chef, and would like to assure you are food is sourced locally where possible and cooked fresh. Thank you again for your feedback and for highlighting the fact that we are an AA rated 3* property and don't pretend to be anything else (In fact our Rating sign is right by the car park entrance, next to our smiley EHO rating)
