We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant and clean however you could hear the traffic through the night as the hotel is situated on a main roundabout into the city centre. We did use the leisure facilities which were fine. We did not use the restaurant. Others have said the rooms are a bit tired...

Staff are absolutely amazing. Very friendly and most helpful. However, the bedrooms are very tired, shabby, out of date and in desperate need of updating. A special thanks to Donna and Cara who made our stay

Hotel is pretty nice. Was upgraded to a suite and staff was friendly. Location is great.. 2 min walk to high street. No free parking so need to pay 10£ per day if in case you are driving. Breakfast choice are not that great.

The only reason I gave 4 stars is the staff and the food!! The rooms are so tired and for a city centre hotel they need to sort the windows! I was on the 8th floor and still the traffic was loud!! but the staff are quality and the food was good

I managed to get tickets for the first ever home Champions League game for Leicester City against Porto I selected this hotel as it is approximately 1 mile from the King Power stadium which is a 15 minute walk All of the staff were very friendly and the accommodation was in line with my expectations of a 4 star hotel
