Days Inn Leicester Forest East M1
Ranked #19 of 41 Hotels in Leicester
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We stayed here for one night whilst visting relatives in Leicester so we just arrived, slept, got up, showered and left. The room was fine and reasonably quiet given its motorway location. The bed was rather soft and bouncy so we kept rolling into each other and the shower wasn't especially powerful, but for £35 it was good value.

The hotel facilities is standard- what one would expect in a budget price. But what made this hotel stand out above the rest is the customer service. We have noticed everyday that the staff goes extra mile to provide the best possible services. I would definitely visit again and in fact I am coming back in 2 months' time for another week stay during my next business trip.

Very convenient hotel for M1 travel North. Good service and convenient shopping and eating facilities. Air conditioning would have been good a the traffic noise was constant, it being a motorway service, and as the outside temperature was high we needed to open the window. All in all a good , comfortable experience at low cost.

The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. We were travelling with two young children and reception staff were of great assistance carrying the travel cot to our room and fetching extra blankets/pillows we needed.

I have been working in Leicester for several months and the Days Inn tops the bill for me. If you book early, the price really cannot be bettered. Rooms are a good size. Proper ensuites with bath and showers. Good, powerful and FREE WiFi, unlike a lot of Leicester hotels (including very pricy ones!). Free parking. Waitrose/Starbucks/KFC all on site for food. Great service. And lovely big white fluffy towels!!! Could not ask for more. I am always very comfortable and at home here.

Booked in for an overnight stay on the way home from Gatwick, first of all I suspect the charge was hiked due to last minute arrival (we were charged £56) and the room itself was small, dimly lit and had a strange smell. Returned to reception to cancel the room (this was done by the chap behind the desk called Paul) and was assured that this would be done asap the next day via the manager a Jane Roper-, still waiting for the refund! I would not recommend this "hotel" due to the poor standard of the interior and customer service.

Room Tip: Demand to see a room before paying.
