Positive Reviews

This central Leicester location is unmatched

A wonderful hotel from which to wander out and enjoy the city’s clubs, bars, pubs restaurants and theatres. It’s also close to the rugby ground so, really, it has something for everyone. That stretches to the world of commerce with impressive conference and meeting facilities proving the hotel to be a truly, all round winner.

Treats are in the offing!

A beautiful and yes, inspiring building, you know you are in for a treat from the moment you arrive. This is something that is confirmed by friendly and efficient staff at all levels.

Building a work of art

A lot of work has gone into the design and facilities. With stunning retro features in evidence, seemingly at every turn, even some of the bathrooms have retained a sense of vintage quality. This hotel is indeed, very special.

Negative Reviews

Turn down the heat!

Nobody seems able to do this and as you lightly poach in your room, calls for staff assistance have nil response because they can’t turn the heating down either. If this is a ploy on the hotel’s part to suggest an idyllic tropical location rather than Leicester – it doesn’t work and needs a drastic re-think!

The high life and the cost of it

Bar staff are sloppily dressed, particularly when facing you with overpriced drinks. At the other end of the scale, ungenerous supplies of beverage facilities in rooms are not of good quality.

Room cleanliness

Carpet stains, dusty corners and hairs of dubious origin in the bathroom; all do little to inspire confidence in the promoted mantra that this hotel as a front runner in the field of city centre, quality accommodation.
