Reviewed 22 April 2013

We arrived at this hotel on Saturday 20 April 2013 at 1.30 (although we were told you could only get in your room after 2pm) to find it all ready and waiting. It was very clean, spacious, bedlinen crisp and looked extremely inviting. The check in procedure was painless and it was very easy to find our room with the directions given by the receptionist. She told us if we did not have a good nights' sleep, we would be entitled to a refund. I would imagine this could quite easily be abused by some people but we were woken up at 7.30 am by people in the corridor having a row and swearing at their children but it would not cause us to complain at that time of the morning.

There is absolutely no noise from the main road a couple of hundred yards from the hotel. All in all an extremely pleasant stay at this hotel and would definitely use it again if I were to be invited to another function in that area.

Room Tip: We stopped on the second floor in Room 24 - so only had on neighbour. Very quiet and a very warm ro...

Excellent value for money. Close to the University we were visiting. The staff on arrival and when checking out were exceptionally welcoming and had excellent local knowledge. Booked a taxi for us. Very safe, and clean, Excellent parking availability.

This must be the 5th or 6th Premier Inn we have stayed in, and as usual it was a good experience. Staff helpful and room clean and comfy. Tiny, tiny niggle would be the noise of doors opening and closed outside our room - maybe this is an older less sound proofed building. We liked the slightly out of town location, the next door pub had OK food.

Tho' advertised, food was not available at next door eatery at 20.40 - room was cold (heating level, apparently set by engineers @ 20C when outside temp was -2C ......... Not what one expects to find having decided to stay at a well-known hotel group convenient for hospital where one's husband has just undergone major surgery and one is a touch stressed-out. Enough said - breakfast might have been good - but did not bother to find out - went to known cafe near hospital!

The hotel bears every sign of being milked for profits for the owners - a shower dribbling water (yes with the ambient heating scarcely reaching a chilly 19C) - tired decor and under investment - and they ask about "value for money". Presumably the business fraternity help to drive the price up as the accountants look to keep expenses down - but wi-fi an extra (after a miserly free 30 minutes - that's not an attractive point.

Anyway - not at all what one might reasonably expect in the depths of winter (well mid-March 2013).

On the positive side - to fulfil their promise - THEY HAVE REFUNDED ALL CHARGES FOR THE NIGHT! THANK YOU - but it would have been far simpler (and more profitable to get it right in the first place and have a thoroughly satisfied customer!

We went to see our son and family in Oadby (Leicestershire) ,and we now always stay at a Premier Inn ,after staying in some rubbish hotels ,Premier Inn Oadby is Pleasant ,and the rooms are what we know and like ,l think rooms 15 and 16 may have problems ,next to the reception and at the top of the stairs ,the breakfast is good ,note we did have breakfast at 0830 ,and the breakfast room looked that it had been busy, but we had no problems ,and we will be staying here again

We stayed 2 nights, was an ok experience, the hotel smelled a bit of disinfectant when we arrived, a bit like a hospital, but then it was very clean !!
The room was nice, it was right at the back at the end, so was nice and quiet. It is up a quiet road, of the main road so was very quiet. But is close enough to Leicester and is very convenient.
The only complaint was that the heater was not easy to work, and it kept turning up in the night.

We did not eat at the place next door, but it looked busy,

We stay in loads of premier inn hotels but this one was not a good experience.

We stayed in room 15 which was right next to reception. It is a long time since we stayed in a hotel with an old fashioned key!

The hotel itself is quite old and this is refelcted in the noise insulatuion. We could hear the guests above all night with squeaky floorboards. Also the thermostats in the room click on and off all night with a loud mechanical "click" which woke us up everytime.

brreakfast in the (noisy at night ) pub next door wasnt very good either. Quite a few things were missing and it was just set up on a table at one end of the pub.

we did mention our experiences on the way out and was offered a refund (which we didint ask for) but the lady on reception couldnt get the refund to work. she gave us a number to ring but after 20 mins on the phone they havent rang back. Oh well.

we wouldnt stay here again but it hasnt put me off premier inn.
