I just got back from a 7 night stay at the Premier Inn Fosse Park whist on a business trip.
The hotel is very clean, the area felt safe, there's lots of parking although some spaces are a long walk from the entrance. The staff are all really friendly.
I arrived at 10:05pm on a Friday night and was handed a weeks supply of Meal Deal Vouchers, the first one had already expired so I went to bed hungry. The Meal Deal is a bit odd, you can have Rump Steak £12 but you can't have a Pizza £8.
The all you can eat breakfast is very good. Good selection of sausages, bacon, hash browns, scrambled egg, croissants, cereals, porridge, muffins. Breakfast was to order at the weekend and a hot buffet during the week. I think the usual price is £8.25, which is great value.
I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel which only had a 20" CRT TV in the room. I was hoping to be able to watch movies from my smartphone on the TV using a HDMI cable, but the CRT TV put an end to that. Apparently some rooms have been updated to LCD flat screens so I must have been unlucky.
The rooms don't have air conditioning, there is a thermostat which only controlled when the electric wall heater kicks in. I had the thermostat turned up full and I was still cold sometimes, this was in late April so it must be freezing in Winter.
It's my company's usual hotel so I will be staying there again, but next time I will request a quieter room.
