This is actually my second stay. I go to Leicester on business a lot. The first stay was a bit of a disaster but as the hotel had only been open for a couple of days I thought it unfair to review it on that stay as most things that went wrong were teething problems.
From the second I entered this time things went well. I was greeted by name by the receptionist before I'd even opened my mouth which was a nice touch. I was allowed to check in very early which was fantastic as I wanted somewhere quiet to prepare before tending to business. The hotel is clean and well decorated (as a new build should be). The rooms are nice but basic. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom fine too. It only has a walk in shower rather than a bath but I prefer that. The location is fantastic. It's close to the railway station and main shopping streets but being so central it's not the quietest hotel I've stayed in plus there's a constant loud whirring noise which disturbed my sleep a bit. The only other negatives are a few breakfast items were poor quality - the fruit juice and sausages are really cheap and nasty - and a couple of the staff seem constantly flustered which affects how polite and effective they are but I'm sure they will get more confident and competent the longer they are in post. Nothing that effective training and performance management couldn't fix.
