We stayed 1 night in March 2014. We are a family of 4 adults and stayed in twin double bed.
It was the cheapest hotel and I cannot really fault it. Great shower (you'd be surprised how rare this is), comfortable beds, tv worked, good quantity of beverages, very helpful staff and only 15 mins to Leicester central.
Obviously not best surroundings but if you want somehere cost effective and good quality you wont go wrong.
Great service from the very helpful staff. The hotel is modern, bright, clean and great value for money. Only 1 niggle in that we couldn't get the aircon to turn off, but there was a portable heater in the room, so we put that on to balance out the temperature.
Express by Holiday Inn Leicester ® Walker Stadium is ideally located, adjacent to the Leicester City Football Club, Walkers …More
Was very surprised, for its cheap price I wasn't expecting much at all but it was lovely if not better than alot of more expensive places I have been to. Certainly tops trvaleodge. Friendly and helpful staff, the beds were extremely cosy which made it hard to get up in the morning in time for check out. Clsoe to the station and bars but not in a noisy area. Having shared toilets doesn't matter as there are so many of them. The only proble is that the parking is a bit tight and tricky, but that could be just me. The doors lock at 7 but you can go out all night if you wish, just get a key from reception for which you need to give a ten pound deposit.
We stayed here for one night for a wedding reception. It is clean, well laid out, and the staff are helpful and friendly. Our room on the 7th floor had a great view over Leicester, facing the Roman Jewry Wall site. We had traveled from Bedford up the M1, and our satnav led us straight into the hotel car park.
There was a tv in the room, and a kettle and drinks. It would have been nice to have a fridge to put our drinks in, but it was okay.
We paid for the breakfast. I was a bit worried about not being able to eat anything because I am a Coeliac (gluten free), but the hotel kindly provided me with a gluten free toasted bun, which I ate with scrambled eggs, bacon, tomato and mushroom. Very tasty. I could see that people were cross-contaminating the breakfast by picking up sausages containing gluten and other items that should have been gluten free with the same tongues. For some coeliacs this could be serious, but I used tongues that were furthest away from the gluten containing items. I didn't get 'glutened', which was good. Every dining experience for a Coeliac is a risk. Strangely, I was offered soya milk with my tea, so I dont think the staff understood what gluten was, or what it can do to a coeliac at all. Never mind. I survived to tell the tale. Since we originally come from Leicester we will most certainly be visiting the Holiday Inn again. Hopefully for longer.
