Stayed at the Mill on the Soar for 1 night 2 weeks ago visiting family, travelling as a family with 2 Children. Hotel was fantastic if travelling with kids. Very Family Friendly establishment.

Rooms are situated in a separate block to the main pub which suited us. Arrived during the Heatwave and the kids played in the on-site adventure park for hours, while all the adults sat in the large beer garden. Moved indoors about 6ish for food and it was lovely, no problems at all even with a large table of 11.

Breakfast - basically all you can eat, kids had cereal then all of us had a cooked breakfast, absolutely no complaints.

Only downfall for us was the fact the rooms couldnt accommodate 2 campbeds for the children so one had to share with us but as it was just for the one night, not too much of a problem. Would stay again

Room Tip: They have about 20 rooms in a completely separate block so don't think it matters which one you...

My daughter and i shared a double room at the mill on the soar, the room was clean and comfortable with a large double bed and also a bed settee. Nice selection of tea/coffee/biscuits. The restaurant in the main building has recently had a very nice refurb.Great menu selection all reasonably priced served by friendly helpful staff.Large outside seating area and childrens park also a fishing lake.Huge carpark. All in all a lovely well placed site. My only complaint (and its very small) was that the ill fitting front door to our room let in quite a bit of traffic noise from the main road,but hey, i live in a very quiet road so i'm probably just supersensitive to noise. In any case i'm back up in leicester at the end of April and will definitely be staying here again.

We have been coming here for years and even though I can not comment on the hotel side of things, we recently had a meal here and it was lovely. Food, service and value for money was really good. Its had some kind of makeover since we last came and we thought it was really enjoyable. Kids loved the american diner style seating .

This was the second time I've stayed at the Mill on the Soar as it's conveniently located for going diving at Stoney Cove. As always, they were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating to our groups needs.

Good-sized comfortable rooms with decent beds, good food in the restaurant at very reasonable prices. All-in-all perfect for our needs.

Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable. Good selection of tea, coffee and biscuits available. We had a meal in the restaurant which was excellent, and very reasonably priced, as was breakfast the next morning. All the staff were very friendly. All round, we felt it was excellent value.

After reading a few petty reviews on this lovely pub I was slightly dubious about staying here. I could not have been worse mistaken and would really quesiton what people want and expect for £30.00 a night!!
Pulling into the pub the grounds were clean and well kept with ample parking (free). Check in was very warm and friendly.
The room that we stayed in was lovely, fresh smelling and had everything we needed, sofa, bed, tv, drink making facilities etc.
We went over the the pub itself for an evening meal and was again welcomed with a very friendly and warm atmosphere. The meals were very fairly priced and the food was lovely. We also got to sit next to the window and see the lit up working Mill. All the staff were very accomodating and did their upmost to make our stay enjoyable.

The pub is on an A road, which yes we could hear slightly but was not bad enough to hamper our sleep.

Overall, this was a lovely nights get away, with friendly staff and well worth the money, would definately recommend and stay here again : )

Room Tip: All rooms together so no bad rooms
