Now Way to cool the room and terrible beds - not recommended

I had often considered staying at the hotel having used the bar and restaurant when I was in Leicester. The restaurant, bar and reception areas are fine and the staff could not be friendly and helpful. The bad bit is that the room was unbearably hot and with no AC and windows that only open a few inches there was no way to get the heat out. We even kept the curtains drawn during the day but there was no way to deal with the problem. As far as the bed the mattress was noisy and old.

Last min / City Ctr

Great last minute bargain - this site saved me £25 on same deal. Ignore SATNAV for last 250 yards, and follow brown signs round one-way system. Mega cheap overnight / onsite parking. Breakfast simple, but good. Rooms tidy and clean - even one on the front on a saturday night was quiet. Just a little wait for night porter to let us back in after attending a late night wedding party. Will use again

A great warm welcome from the reception staff. Enjoyed my short stay. Fantastic location in the city centre with ampel parking. One negative very thin walls, noise from next room and people walking past did wake me during the night and early in the morning.

Very central and good car park

Very central and good car park at £5 per day. We had some time to kill and used the hotel as a base to see the "sights of Leicester" Ok, it's not a tourist town but it has some interesting bits. Would recommend this hotel.
