“Very good value,and comfortable”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

I stayed here in Wednesday night last week.
Anita on Reception when I arrived was lovely, and could not have been more helpful.
She upgraded me to an en-suite room, following a cancellation.
She provided me with maps and directions, being a newcomer in Leicester.
She turned up again at 8 a.m and served a gorgeous breakfast that was far more varied and tasty than the term 'continental' might imply - hot boiled eggs, warm croissants, cold meats, fresh fruit and cheeses, yoghurt etc.
All in all, a most comfortable - and value for money - experience.
Lastly, whatever the Owner pays Anita, I doubt it is enough !

Room Tip: Maybe try to avoid a room overlooking the street if it is a pub night for students (not an issue the...

We stayed for 2 nights, Monday & Friday, as we were travelling to southern regions we decided to take a break half way down, and also on the return journey
As in the title the accomodation was basic( nice powerful showers though) we had a double room en suite although the bed was actually 2 singles pushed together.
A pleasent young lady met us and booked us in without any fuss, and gave us a choice of floors to stay on, though she reccomended the 3rd, to avoid most of the noise from the pub opposite, although it was hardly audible (even on the Friday)
A very well laid out continental breakfast greeted us in the morning with plenty of fresh produce to choose from.
A bit of advice to the owners GET proper double beds

Room Tip: Take the advice and room on the 3rd floor, although this means climbing three flights, but it'll...

Small B&B type hotel. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The Breakfast was free and was very nice. Also had free Wifi. Very central location and very good value for the prices they charge. We had a first floor twin room with lovely ensuite and double bed and single bed very spacious.

I fell in love with this place as soon as I walked in. Well actually with the receptionist who is stunningly beautiful, So maybe my review is a little biased.
It's a strange hotel with the reception manned only until 8pm at the latest but more realistically until the last person checks in. The rooms are large enough with a kettle, iron and ironing board. Also a hairdryer if needed. I found the beds really comfortable and slept really well on both my visits. I stayed in room 303 on my first visit and 304 on my second visit. They were the two singles making a double as have been discussed and I am really surprised to read that people found them uncomfortable.
Breakfast is only served from 8:45 to 10:00 which i find quite bizarre. fortunately this did not cause a problem for me.
It's clean, comfortable and in a great location for the City centre and at the price will be my first choice when I visit Leicester in the future.

Having read previous reviews about issues with the kingsize beds being two singles pushed together, I rang twice to change my booking. The staff member tried to put me off this change and it was clearly a common complaint. I eventually managed to get the lady to agree to swap my room but found out this had not been done on arrival. Not only was the bed difficult due to the large gap where the mattresses met, it was hard and uncomfortable and neither me or my partner slept well. The room was overheated and stuffy despite having both windows wide open and staff were conspicuous in their absence. Although the hotel was clean and in a good city location, the basics are just not there to recommend it to others - disappointing.

The hotel is in a great location for the theatre, only a few minutes walk. The shower in the room could have been more regulated (freezing one moment, scalding the next), but it was clean and the room was a good size. There is no parking at the hotel and the meters outside are expensive. There is free parking on Tudor road which is approximately a 10-15 min walk. It's worth the walk if you are staying for a few nights.

Overall a nice, clean hotel in a great central location, with friendly staff, for a cheap price. We found it lacking in a few key areas though; despite costing more, the king sized bed is actually just two singles pushed together, which led to an extremely uncomfortable gap in the middle (not ideal for cuddling couples). The duvet was also only double sized and therefore too small to cover the entire bed, and the other bedding was somewhat flat and tired. We were also given a hand towel in the place of one of the full sized ones, and the continental breakfast was underwhelming. The heating was also not on for most of the time, which was not brilliant considering it was snowing outside. Would be a really lovely hotel if they would address these problems, but as it is, I would have had a more comfortable stay at the travelodge.

Room Tip: Not worth upgrading to a king sized!
