Very basic - not really good value

"This really isn’t a hotel, doesn’t even match to standard of a b&b, I was quite shocked. The place looked unfinished. The lady running it was very friendly but don’t go if you have luggage. There is a steep set of stairs to climb up as soon as you enter through the door. Quite dangerous if you have ..."…"

The 2,000-year-old East Midlands town of Leicester packs some serious historic punch, what with the ruins of castles, a centuries old stone cathedral and an ancient market, not to mention laying claim to the burial site of King Richard III. However, when you stay in one of the Leicester bed and breakfasts, you'll find there's also a contemporary side to the city, with state-of-the-art museums, live music venues kept fresh by the growing student population, and a packed calendar of events and festivals. The cosmopolitan city is a melting pot of cultures, which is reflected in the diverse range of food available. The Indian and Pakistani restaurants are particularly good – some say they offer the best curries this side of the sub-continent. Then there's the beloved Leicester City Football Club who, in 2016, shocked the country by rising from near relegation to winning the Premier League in one of the sport's greatest achievements.

Traditional Victorian terraced guesthouses and city crash pad B&Bs, Leicester

You could stay in a hotel, but nothing beats the home-away-from-home feeling of a Leicester bed and breakfast, and there's a good number to choose from. Some are decades-old establishments offering just a handful of rooms in their family homes. Others are a little more swish, housed in 3-storey red-brick Victorian piles with luxurious decor and deluxe furnishings. If you're coming to Leicester on a city break, one of the city crash pads might be right up your street. Alternatively, the country cottages outside the city boundaries might be a little more your style. Whatever your taste and budget, you'll always find the right thing when you look through the extensive listings on Expedia, which include detailed descriptions and photographs of every property. Simply search by location and budget, scan through the B&Bs, and book in just a few clicks. You'll always be guaranteed a comfortable stay when you book through Expedia.

If you're bringing your car, you'll often find there's a free secure parking space at your bed and breakfast in Leicester. Checking in is always a breeze and while you're settling in to your guestroom, you can explore all the amenities. While each guestroom differs, you'll often find ensuite bathrooms packed with toiletries and fluffy towels, or flat-screen TVs on the walls. A large, comfortable double bed is a given, as is the free WiFi, but if you've picked right, you could find a room with views overlooking the city's historic landmarks. If you want to bring the kids, you'll always find bed and breakfasts in Leicester with family-sized or adjoining rooms. Breakfasts are typically hearty affairs at B&Bs. Well, it's in the name. You'll likely find cooked breakfasts, pastries, or healthier options, like fruit and yogurts, all washed down with pots of freshly brewed tea or coffee. While you're in the Midlands, why not hop on a train and head for the vast metropolis of Birmingham?

Travel back in time or out to space in the attractions near your B&B, Leicester

There are so many things to do near your Leicester bed and breakfast, it can often be tricky to know where to start. One of the city's newest attractions is the King Richard III Visitor Centre, which sits next door to the site where the monarch's remains were uncovered in 2012 and looks to document his turbulent life. Then there's Leicester Cathedral, a Gothic pile built on a site that has had a church standing on it for some 9 centuries – it's one of the finest in the Midlands. If you've brought the kids, don't forget to take them to the National Space Centre, the country's leading authority on all things astronomical.
