    Property condition


    I called reception 3 times but never got an answer. The room was quite hot, although we open the window, but unfortunately their AC was switched off centrally and did not have access to AC to cool down the room. We were given two drink vouchers - as my partner has a gold card/membership - and when we got two acholic drinks with mixers in it, they said one drink with a mixer is classed as two, which we never knew and ended up paying (£5.00) for the other drink even though we had drinks upstairs.

    4/5 Good

    Very good value - only £55 for 2 in a twin room, including breakfast and on that basis it was generally fine - clean, comfy bed, good shower, fluffy towels, etc. We had a twin room for 2 and a double room for 1 on our stay (just one night) The niggles I experienced were: - initial receptionist allocated our rooms wrongly and wasn't very polite when we highlighted this. However the receptionist and bar staff I talked to on all other occasions were friendly, polite and very customer service focused - we had only 2 tea bags in both rooms - no coffee, hot chocolate, etc. And very little milk. This was easily remedied by a visit to reception - the air con/heating in my room was not functioning at all The location right next to the King Power stadium is very handy although the tannoy announcements at 8am were not so welcome!

    4/5 Good

    Great location for visiting uni of Leicester

    Great hotel and location for the university. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only complaint is that the rooms are very warm, the air conditioning won’t go lower than 19 degrees.

    No sleep for 2 nights 😩😩

    Double sofa bed was completely unusable, no sleep first night staff very apologetic and put duvets on mattress but still very very uncomfortable. Not sure this is legal in a hotel as it was torture, not fit for purpose they should be taken out the rooms. Staff said they had tried one and couldn’t believe how bad they were

    Rooms at the rear of hotel are badly susceptible to noise from delivery loading/unloading area. This disturbance started at 6.30 am.
