But the whole communication over the four days of our stay was terrible. No answered calles at all and one response a day was ...
Great location, close to the station short walk into town centre. Lovely big rooms and bed was amazingly comfy.
Loved this property for convenience to town and was able to park car outside of property.
I liked how cosy it was and very homely. Comfy bed, black out curtains and tv and desk in my room. I was pleased with what was available. One thing I would change I have someone at the desk longer then the short window because checking out left me a little concerned and confused.
The stair case has some sharp protruding objects. I suggest use of white bedding and towels and not coloured. The store in the living room needs cleaning and non functional items to be discarded. Property owner was quite responsive to requests.
Overall, a clean and pleasing property, that is good value for money and centrally located in Leicester.
The King Power Stadium, which was known as the Walkers Stadium between 2002 and 2011, is one of the East Midlands' principle sporting venues, well known nationally for being the training ground of the Leicester City Football Club. It's within a mile radius of a good selection of hotels and restaurants, and only 1.5 miles from Leicester Railway Station.
Completed in 2002, the King Power Stadium replaced Leicester city's previous training ground, Filbert Street, which opened way back in 1891, just seven years after the club was founded as the Leicester Fosse before adopting its current name in 1919. Today, the stadium has four stands, and has hosted a number of international matches such as the Friendly between Jamaica and Ghana in 2006.
