Premier Inn Leicester Central (A50) Hotel

Reviewed 19 April 2013

Very efficient and pleasant Check In.
I am sure this Hotel has had a lick of paint and new carpets since my last visit, if not the standard of cleanliness is superb. The lobby, corridors, and room certainly seemed "softer" underfoot. And the bathroom was spotless.
I had a top floor room (third floor), and chose the stairs, but there is a lift for the less mobile.
The room I had was a little exposed (229) as it was on the corner of the building, so if it is windy you may wish to be lower down.
Whilst the hotel is next to the main road into Leicester, the noise was not obtrusive, but again if this will bother you try to get a room facing the other way.
Hopefully this hotel will get a tv upgrade soon (as Stockport South has) and get ones with bigger screens!!

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from main road if noise will bother you

I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. The receptionist at night was very helpful and friendly, and sorted out a mistake with our booking very quickly. The room was a good size, and immaculately clean as well as quiet.
I would definitely stay here again if on a shopping weekend, and it is also very handy for Leicester Glenfield hospital.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building seemed very quiet.

The rooms are of a high standard; certainly excellent for the price. Quiet and warm enough without being too hot. The Restaurant in the nearby pub is really good, the only disadvantage is it is a walk across open ground, so not ideal if the weather is bad.

Room Tip: All the rooms have double glazing and soundproofing I believe, so you are not affected by the fact i...

We stayed at Premier Inn (A50) Leicester Central for 1 night in two family rooms. The price was great as it was a special offer for Easter. The rooms were very nice, comfortable, clean and adequately spacious. The bathroom was also very good. The tea/coffee making facilities were very welcome. Hotel staff were polite and welcoming, especially so with the children. We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant (which was in a separate building so we had to go out in the cold to get there, a minor drawback though). Breakfast was delicious and good value with the children eating for free. Overall we had a great stay in Leicester and visited The National Space Centre and Snibston Discovery Park.

Does what it says on the tin. Very clean, I found the bed fine and was happy to have the extra pilllows. I agree with the lack of sockets - very strange! The bedside shelves are also very tiny but it didn't matter too much to us.
Safe parking and the Fayre and Square on site was clinical but fine.

2 miles from the city centre
Plenty of parking
Clean and tidy, friendly staff.
Breakfast in Fare & Square onsite good value and good quality.
As always good for the money paid (£37room only)

Uncomfortable beds, dodgy tv signal and lack of plug sockets were negatives

This was more or less what you would expect in a Premier Inn: comfortable room, comfortable beds, plenty of parking space. What made it especially nice though was the friendliness of the staff, both in the Inn and at the Brewers Fayre across the car park where breakfast was served. Without exception the staff were lovely. The only point I would make is that I wish there had been some kind of instructions regarding the tuning of the television in the room; it promised radio but I struggled to get it, without success. Not a major problem, just a little niggle.
