“Break the journey.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

Stayed overnight to break a long car journey.
The room was very clean, modern and bright. Everything worked - including the two fans brought in to combat the heatwave! Extra-large double bed was very, very comfortable. Room was very quiet, although traffic could be heard if windows were left open. Free WiFi available.

Had an excellent dinner and breakfast in the adjacent Heathley Park Inn, which is part of the Premier Inn complex. Being a Friday p.m. the restaurant was quite full (being open to the locals) so was a bit noisy. First class service and a fairly extensive pub-style menu - at very reasonable prices. Go for the £8.50 breakfast - eat all you want fry-up, plus the continental style if you can manage it!!

This was our first stay at a Premier Inn, but will certainly be looking to them as our first choice in future.

The Heathley Park Premier Inn-Leicester was our very first visit to a Premier Inn but now I'm glad to say it will not be our last! It was not only very comfortable, relaxing, modern & spacious but also professional & had very friendly helpful & thoughtful staff! Thank you for making the difference we enjoyed our stay very much!

This was our 4th stay at this premier inn and once again the staff were most helpful and pleasant on arrival. The room was cool and fresh and we had a good nights sleep. The food at the attached restaurant was great value for money. Our only criticism of the service would be the towels - one bath and one hand towel - ideally if you are sharing a room 2 bath towels would be acceptable - otherwise perfect and will be back again soon

The staff were fine- very helpful.
The food at the attached restaurant- leaves a lot to be desired.
The food was over cooked- some items missing although not told this till order arrived- Some food poorly cooked or badly presented.

Very clean, spacious and friendly staff. Easy to find, parking and close to town, but ... Brick building with triple pane windows that will only open a few inches, and no air conditioning. Would be a great hotel choice in mild or cold weather, not during the heat wave

I haven't particularly liked Premier Inns - They have been a bit too basic and often I have found then too close to night-time traffic, but this one is different. It is far away from traffic in a quiet and peaceful spot and I could sleep with the window fully open. As with all Premier Inns that I have been to the staff are very welcoming and everywhere was spotlessly clean. There is quite a good adjacent pub-style eating and drinking place with a nice outside seating area, and while the fare is standard pub stuff it was good. Breakfast is a treat. I will not hesitate to stay here on my business visits to the area in the future, for, basic though it is, it is absolutely top-rate for sleep comfort and value.
