Fab place to stay
Good location and great space for a family to stay in 😀

5/5 Excellent

Knighton Villa
A great place to stay in Leicester, and very well managed.

3/5 Okay

Several things to address
Unfortunately during our stay we had to point a number of issues out to the property owner by email. They have sent the list of items to their cleaners/ maintenance person as there were several cracks and marks on walls/ ceilings that should have been looked at prior to guests staying and carpets were dirty in several places including the main bedroom. There is also a small hole in the bathroom window they are now having fixed and a window is being secured by shoe laces as there is no latch. It is unfortunate these items were not reported by the previous guest the week before we arrived as it may have given the owners time to address the issues prior to our stay.

5/5 Excellent

The property was exactly as described
Very easy check in ,check out process & attentive communication via email throughout . Our dog enjoyed his stay too , particularly the secure garden & cool tiled floors on the hottest day of the year Would recommend .
