Holiday Inn Express Leicester - City

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for a couple of nights as we went to the football. About a 20 minute walk from the city, walking through the University was nice, and only £6 back in the taxi. Also handy to the nandos and pubs nearby.

No problems, no issues - All what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Hasn't had it's re-fit yet but not a problem. staff were efficient and friendly. East access to the De Monfort Hall which was the reason for our visit. Lovely view of the King Power Stadium from the room and the Blues Bar & Grill next door is well worth a visit. All smiles here :)

The people who work here are really friendly and look after you well. Breakfast is good and the rooms are good and clean. Parking is free and next to the hotel. Some interesting views from the top floors

Lovely hotel and walkable to the city centre. Comfortable and clean rooms, plenty for breakfast and a car park at the back of the hotel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. A pub next door serves evening meals.

I think it's important to recognise great service and Alex, front of house, is always really helpful. I stay here regularly and both Alex and Hanna have always ensured I have a good experience, whether recommending places to eat or just going about their day to day business .... it's a pleasure to stay here because of them.

When you stay at a Holiday Inn Express, you don't expect the Savoy or Ritz in London. The room was very much a Standard room as they go. It was clean and tidy. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast was ample, and did the trick. The only grumble I had was the Ironing Room was situated on the 3rd floor. I thought you had to go down and pick up your communal Iron and Ironing Board. I was surprised to find out the Ironing Board was permanently attached to the wall? A bit awkward as the plan was to iron the trousers I was wearing at that moment? Can you imagine the shock as some poor person walked in to see me standing in my boxer shorts? So obviously I had to replan how i was going to go about this all? For me the outstanding feature of the hotel was the Staff. Cheerful, positive, helpful and knew their hotel, and could answer any questions you needed asked. There was a Restaurant right next door to the Hotel, which provided you with Room Service directly which was a nice touch. I didn't use this service as I had arranged to meet some business colleagues in town that evening. Or else I would have been very tempted. A taxi into the heart of the city was fairly good value at £6. And the hotel is a 60 sec walk across to the King Power Stadium, the grounds of the now famous Leicester City FC.

We got off to a good start as Stavros,the receptionist was excellent both on arrival and throughout our stay. Room was OK with a view of the football ground but it was persistently cold even with the heating full on. The "restaurant" next door had nothing remotely healthy on the menu so we ate elsewhere and took a taxi as there was nowhere else nearby. Breakfast was interesting as I have never had a cooked breakfast in the UK without bacon being available and the fruit comprised some grapefruit lurking in the back of a fridge or a piece of fruit. I chose a banana which was bad. Without its proximity to Leicester City, this hotel has nothing to offer.

A nice hotel for football and rugby fans as both grounds are walking distance. It is a cheap hotel especially if booked in advance. It is a basic, no frills hotel and an enjoyable stay. The staff are friendly.

Yet another stay to visit The King Power Stadium. It's just over the Road from The Stadium. Reception Staff were excellent especially The Chap that booked us in went The extra mile. We booked a room as we are season ticket holders at LCFC so we went to the Home Match against Hull and we had booked The Stadium tour the next day. Our plan was also to try to get Claudio Ranieri's autograph before or after the match and to Thank him for all he had done for Leicester City BUT sadly we all know what happened to him 2 weeks before. Our room was clean and tidy. We both had a Great nights sleep. Cooked Breakfast was Sausage, scrambled eggs & Baked Beans. Toast, croissants, cereal, fruit, Blueberry Muffins etc etc also available. Everything My wife and I ate was very good. Kaz said that The Blueberry muffins were the best she had ever tasted.

The hotel staff were excellent very friendly, they promptly ordered us a taxi in the evening nothing seemed too much trouble. The room was clean and bedding crisp and white. Breakfast was basic but adequate. The hotel was within walking distance of Welford road so the location was brilliant. Plus the bonus of free parking, have booked to go again April
