Stayed here for one night on business. The hotel is centrally located, has adequate parking facilities and has shops, bars and restaurants to hand. I guess as it was a Sunday night that I wasn't too troubled by noise and there didn't seem to be many guests in residence anyway, so the corridors and communal areas were quiet.
Check was easy and the girl on reception was friendly and informative. I was allocated a room on the fourth floor, which initially I couldn't get into as the key card wasn't working. A quick trip back down to reception resolved that issue.
The room itself was fine. Big bed, plenty of wardrobe space, etc. The bathroom was a bit untidy in terms of hairs in the bath but nothing a splash of water didn't fix.
The blackout curtains together with the lack of noise meant that I had a good nights sleep.
Check out was straight forward enough. Overnight parking is £7 but if you plan on hanging around Leicester after you have checked out, the hotel will duly validate your ticket to reflect this.
Didn't use the restaurant or bar facilities so can't comment on this.
The hotel has subsequently advised they are having a makeover later this year so I would expect to see an update around the rest of the hotel to bring it in line with the reception area
