Average sized room with a clean bathroom, plenty of hot water and a comfortable bed which is the main thing. Complimentary tea and coffee provided and a kettle and hairdryer. The reception staff are welcoming and helpful and give you extra milk sachets for free. Its approx 15-20 minute walk through the town centre to reach the university which is great. The food is very expensive, £15 for a burger, £6 for a cup of soup and £3 for a coffee. Room costs £50 per night, reasonable. Quiet at the weekend, no disruptions and I slept like a log. The only downfall is each room only has one plug socket which is silly and has no table or work area to place a laptop. Free parking is available, approx room for 20 cars.

Wow, what a transformation? I have been going to this hotel for a number of years but it has reached a new level now. Special credit to Maria for providing exceptional service. It is clear all the staff are proud of their new hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone. All of the rooms are fresh, modern and functional leading to an enjoyable experience.

Couldn’t fault this hotel for the price. It was clean and fresh. There was a mix up on arrival due to the booking agent but the hotel rectified this as quick as they could. The shower was outstanding, have always loved a power shower. There is a large car park but it is first come first served. We booked breakfast for £5 each and to be honest I wasn’t expecting a lot for the price but it was brilliant! You had the choice of toast, pancakes, croissants and cereal as well as a full english. Definitely filled you up for the day.

Clean and quiet room, good location near the city centre and bus terminal The staff member Laima was extremely helpful and friendly. The wifi connection was tricky, though. Will definitely stay here next time in Leicester!

This hotel is very dated and poor state of of repairs The hotel was very dirty the curtains and nets are very dirty and some rooms there wasn’t any in the room The staff members had poor communication skills and could not commend English We had been allocated a room on the first floor which was not clean or ready and we had to go back and they gave another room in the 3rd floor and we noted that the bathroom was leaking on the floor with wet patch every where I contacted the maintenance staff which had checked it out and we had again been offered another room however it had no net curtains and when the windows open, there was a very noisy high road and over a flyover which we had declined and the staff member put down some towels for the second room The beds had been very uncomfortable and did not get much sleep We had also requested a twin room which we had requested at checkin changed to double and had been told that the hotel was fully booked and yet they gave us a choice of three rooms We inquired about the breakfast and had been told that it was £9.45, which was very pricey however due to my medical needs I had to have one before we left. The cooked breakfast was 1 sausage 2 strips of grilled and burnt beacon hash brown, an egg & some bake beans I they said they run out of mushrooms for that price it was stated unlimited but the way the waiter served it was it was limited. Was not told about coffees teas of anything Poor service as there was only one person in the dining area When we checked out was asked about the stay and when we had stated the issues the reception staff was not even listening We would never stay at this hotel again

Stayed here on September 5 for one night with my wife to watch a band at the musician, we had food there in the evening and breakfast. Excellent value for a budget hotel, clean and staff are courteous we will stay there again.

We stopped at the Campanile on the journey home to break up the long drive after our holiday - after reading the reviews I was concerned but there was no need. The room (407) was clean and a good size, if you’re looking for the savoy this ain’t it but it is absolutely price appropriate and the staff were friendly. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Traveling with family ( 2 children ), made reservation for 2 two rooms with internal communication. At arrival there was no rooms available ( they confirm by mail and did not prepare ). Pay with breakfast and they refuse to serve because booking does not confirm. After showing payments they accept. Car Parking depend on time that you arrive, if lucky you can park ... On check out they want to charge again breakfast and say that booking does not inform them what I have payed. Breakfast very poor as well. At night many noise in front of hotel and not easy to sleep. No air conditioning and very hot inside rooms. I do not recommend unless you have no other option.

Chose this hotel because it was close to the city and offered free parking. Rooms are squalid & lacking in proper ventilation. Beds are small & uncomfortable. What is lacking with the room is made up by the fantastic cooked full english breakfast 🐷

Three of us stayed here for two nights over the weekend, in two separate rooms. Nearly everything is pretty much what you expect from £40-£50 per night. The rooms are a fairly decent size, one of them had a futon in them. The staff were really polite and friendly. Everything was clean and tidy on arrival! Our two rooms we’re next to each other which was a nice touch not putting us separate ends of the hotel. We did however read the reviews before we came to Leicester, reading the rooms were really hot we brought our own fans. (Really glad we did) the rooms are super hot and the windows, I’m guessing for safety, only opens a small amount! The noise from the road outside is constant, but it’s just where the hotel is you can’t get away from it. Bring ear plugs if noise bothers you at night! There were only two plugs in the room, none of which are placed by the bed. Luckily I had a power bank and we had a laptop we could plug in and charge a phone off that! Bring an extension lead! We asked if reception had one they said no. The curtains were terrible at keeping light out! I’ve never stayed in a hotel where the curtains were so poor at keeping light out before. As soon as the sun came up, the whole room was lit! No lay in for any of us. My sister said that someone came into her room whilst we were out to clean it, she was struggling to drain the sink in the bathroom. She said it was drained but the bin wasn’t changed, nothing was cleaned and her bedding wasn’t changed either just her bed made. The views from the windows were horrendous but the area of the hotel is pretty rough all round, it gets a lot nicer as you come into the main town! All in all, worth what we paid for, for 2 nights each. But the rooms were way too hot, a fairly noisy hotel also. Clean on arrival! But not kept clean it seems when it comes to house keeping. Lacking plug sockets, and cheap curtains letting lots of light in. You get what you pay for! I didn’t expect much more to be honest. But for a cheap hotel in a fairly questionable area, it did the job for two nights and the staff were very friendly especially the lady on reception.
