We spent 2 nights at the Fieldhead Hotel while attending Graduation activities at University of Leicester. Great location and super pub & restaurant. Very comfortable beds, room cleaned daily by very nice housekeeping staff, and front desk staff was very helpful with directions and help logging into WIFI service.

My wife and I, both of us in our fifties, stayed for one night in this hotel on our way from Durham to the south-west. it is very conveniently located for the motorway. Staff were friendly, helpful, and plentiful. The room was comfortable, although if staying on a warm night in summer, I would suggest requesting a room not facing the courtyard, as this was quite noisy. Food, although not gourmet, was very wholesome and good value. Overall, we would be very happy to stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the courtyard on warm eveninigs

We had stayed perviously and were impressed with the friendliness of the staff, hence we chose Field head hotel as a venue to renew our wedding vows after 25 yrs of marriage.
everybody that attended were complementary about the relaxed surroundings with the beer garden providing an excellent place for photography
A special thanks has to go to Toni the wedding planner at the Hotel, Toni and the hotel staff were exceptional, so approachable and committed to make the day as smooth running as possible and a day to remember . The food served to our guests was fresh and really yummy and service was great accommodating and friendly.
We stayed at the hotel along with two other couples. we had the in the four poster room which was very clean and every effort was made for us to get into the room to change and get ready for 2pm again thanks to Toni and the hotel staff.
Breakfast service was also brilliant, staff were attentive and offered a wide range of choices, with copious amounts of coffee served
Overall i would definitely recommend not only a stay at this hotel, but as a venue to celebrate a special occasion in relaxed surroundings
THANK YOU ALL WHO MADE OUR DAY SO SPECIAL

As it was my husbands 36th birthday, we decided on staying somewhere nice and pleasant for a couple of days. We had a look at the English Inns site and saw a great deal for 2 nights here. It cost us £20.00 per night (incl breakfast). A few weeks previous for my own birthday we had stopped at another in the same chain called The RIverside @ Branston, Burton Upon Trent. The room at The Riverside wasn't really up to much, so I didn't hold out much hope for here. We arrived early and was allowed access to our room immeadiately. My husbands parents had followed us down to the hotel and were going to join us for lunch. We all went and had a look at the room and was really surprised.... the room was very large and nicely furnished. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. Over our 2 night stay we ate in the hotel each night, the food was great. We found the staff very willing to help. After our first we discovered in the morning that our car battery had drained, the manager who was on on a Monday morning was really, really helpful. He let us try and jump our car from his. I can't remember the guys name, but would still like to say a massive thanks to him.
Back to the review, Breakfasts were great and the Restaurant area is beautiful. Only slight quibble was that the cleaning staff were very noisy when they started cleaning at around 6am. We stayed from Sunday night to Tuesday afternoon, even though it was the week, we kind of still wanted a little lie in. All in all it was a lovely stay and we will be staying here again soon!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that over looks the Courtyard.

We held our wedding celebrations here- renewal of vows ceremony, reception and evening disco and buffet. We had a fabulous weekend, which was due mostly to the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Led by the wedding co-ordinator, Toni, they ensured that our day went smoothly and that all our guests were well looked after. The Fieldhead is a mid range hotel, which offers good accommodation and food. It has a few little quirks- but that is one of the reasons we liked it when we first stayed there! It offers very good value for money, lovely breakfasts, and wholesome ‘pub grub’. The rooms are clean and comfortable and offer extras which are great for wedding guests such as irons in each room and full length mirrors. We hired a separate marquee for our reception and buffet, and the staff set this out beautifully to our specifications ( see photo) A small number of our guests were a little disappointed with their main meal after the ceremony, but the majority tucked in and really enjoyed it. The buffet was plentiful and delicious, and the DJ arranged by the hotel was very friendly and kept exactly to what we requested. A lot of the staff are quite young, and would perhaps benefit from a little bit of extra training to deal with things like serving children with appropriate glasses, or laying the table correctly. They ALL, however, were polite, friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them. We are so pleased we chose this venue and we had a really memorable day. A huge THANK YOU again, to Toni and her team.

We stayed here last month for 2 nights, along with many family members celebrating my sister's wedding. Our room was spacious and very clean, with a huge kingsize bed. and large bathroom with bath and shower over. Our daughter's room, next door to ours, was of the same size and clean standard. Our rooms had full length mirrors and iron + board - essentail items when a girl needs to look her best!

The staff were all friendly and efficient and enhanced our lovely stay. The food in the bar is served until 10pm each night and was of a good quality and price. Breakfast is served until 12md and there's a large choice of buffet and cooked meals.

The wedding celebrations all went smoothly. We had a 3 course cooked sit down meal. The soup was wonderful, but sadly the main course was very disappointing, being overcooked and tepid. This was the only letdown for me throughout our stay.

The evening buffet and disco was very enjoyable; all the staff worked hard to ensure we had a good time.

I thoroughly recommend this as a great party venue, with attentive, caring and friendly staff.

Stayed here with my husband the last weekend of May....nice room, clean and comfortable - the beds are amazingly comfy too.... Had one of the "2 main meals for £10.45" deals on Friday night - very good, and a nice choice. Ate "a la carte" in the restaurant on Saturday night - again very good. Staff were friendly and helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
