Days Inn Leicester Forest East

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just needed somewhere to break up a long journey north after leaving London quite late. Room was clean and comfortable which was all I needed and at a very affordable price Check in and out all very efficiently done by friendly staff

We only stayed here as Premier Inn was full and it was short notice that we needed to travel. We arrived at 6pm, both our rooms were ready and it was cheap. It is on the motorway with views of the car park/truck stop but there was no noise. We were pleasantly surprised that the room was nice, kettle and tea/ coffee and biscuits, hair dryer, bathroom clean and no problems. Both our rooms had a double and a single, plus there were extra pillows on the shelf, comfy nights sleep. Pleasantly surprised that the towels were a decent size unlike some hotels. We ate dinner and breakfast in the food court of the services that are part of the complex Would use Days Inn again

Very basic accommodation, no frig in room, suggest only reason to stop there is it is on the M1 and thus convenient if travelling on that route and need a place for a short stop over, would not recommend it for a stay of more than one night, should have gone into Leicester. Only fast food outlets on site

All of the staff were excellent, good clean, warm rooms, which were modern with good doors to keep any outside noise out, excellent facilities in the room, with a refrigerator and all the things we needed, very good mattresses. Will stay again

We booked Days Inn as roughly a halfway point between the south coast and our destination. £50 for the room. To be honest I wasn’t expecting much for the price and on the side of the M1 but we were pleasantly surprised. A large comfortable room with a good sized en suite and a powerful shower. Would definitely stay there again.

Nice friendly staff, with it being on a motorway services you are limited to night time activities, the usual fast food outlets and the usual overpriced shops. I used it for work purposes. As you would expect with this type of hotel, it was clean warm and well presented and also very quite considering it was on motorway services and i was happy enough to stay there for 8 weeks during a period of working away from home.

It’s been a while since I last stayed at a days inn but worth the money especially with the fact that there is the additional motorway services located within the premises. The room is quite large, the bathroom is clean and the shower is very good. The bed is better than the Travelodges I normally stay at and the large parking facility is an added bonus especially for large vans. Highly recommended.

Having heard Days Inn were good I booked a room for a return journey. I'd booked a different location the night before and been extremely happy, so I was looking forward to another good night's stay, even though it was £10 more expensive. I arrived late in the night (3am) and was disappointed that the room was looking a little tired, didn't entirely smell fresh and was cold. On waking, I was faced with a faulty shower valve, which meant no hot water and hence, no bath, or shower. I didn't therefore, shower, which made my 3 hour onward journey less pleasing than it otherwise might have been. I suspect this location has previously been a Travel Lodge that's been taken over and been given a minimal makeover. Not the quality I'd expect. I won't stay again and am sad to say, I'd rather have slept in my car!

The stafff were very welcoming and friendly. the hotel was very clean and the beds were comfy, the only gripe I have is how hollow the walls and ceilings are, we could here every footstep of people above throughout the night, and I can only assume it was from the upstairs corridor too as we could hear footsteps pretty much most of the night. Not an easy issue to fix (unless you’re on the top floor) so didn’t complain.

stsyed one night room was a non smoking room but stank of cigarrettes when i went in opened the window and was a few cigarette stubs where previous guests had been putting fags out obviously the cleaner missed them and never sprayed the room after cleaning had to use deodarant to try get rid of the smell theres no excuse for anyone smoking in any room in any hotel chances are they wont do it at home if u wana smoke go outside and think of other guests going into the room behind you
