First time that we have stayed in a Holiday Inn so it was a new experience. Only stayed the one night so not really a true reflection. However, for the one night it was very pleasant, clean, very spacious rooms, extremely friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you and bar prices nothing over the top. Nothing to put me off stopping again.

I attended a weekend seminar which was held at this hotel. The staff were pleasant and helpful, the buffet breakfast was well cooked, hot and well presented the main menu had a good selection which is reasonably priced also a selection of freshly prepared specials. Its central location makes it a ideal base for the tourist attractions that Leicester has to offer and the main shopping centre is short walk away. One word of caution I stayed in room 217 which overlooks a flat roof which has air conditioning units situated on it you do get a small amount background noise from them this didn't cause me any disturbance but could be a problem if you are a light sleeper. I would have no problem with returning for another stay or recommending it to anyone else.

The hotel is beautifully clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the drinks reasonably priced. Such a comfortable bed and the pillows were superb. A handy car park next to the hotel and an extremely efficient reception check in and out.The breakfast offered everything you could possibly want and beautifully cooked and all hot items hot.

One night stop whilst in Leicester, like the IHG brand so picked this one. Great location in the middle of town, car park opposite, no road to cross. Good spacious room, comfortable bed. Good pool and Jacuzzi. Very good breakfast in a pleasant restaurant. Very helpful staff re late check out and good room service.

Spent a single night at the hotel. Had booked on line direct with IHG using a IHG basic membership I have had for a number of years. Arrived at the hotel in the centre of Leicester. When we went to check in we discovered we had been upgraded to an executive room. Also we received a club biscuit each for being members. Room was very pleasant on 6th floor close to the lift. The hotel was very busy as there was a wedding on. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was fine except that some of the tiles needed some attention as they were at imminent risk of falling off. Breakfast the following morning was a buffet with plenty of choice, The service at the hotel in reception was good and also at breakfast. There is a £10 per day charge for using the car park next to the hotel. The main shopping area is next to the hotel, since its essentially in the middle of a roundabout it takes a few minutes the first time to find your way off the roundabout via a pedestrian crossing - its very busy so a quick rush across the road is not really a viable option. All in all a reasonable city centre hotel - just wish I'd remembered my swimming gear as it has a pool.

The reception and check in was a breeze, made to feel really welcome by Amit. The room was a little shabby, stained carpet and scuff marks along the wall, but the beds were really comfy and clean. The bathroom was very clean and well stocked with nice towels and toiletries. easy to use heating controls and the telly worked, although not a huge range of channels. This hotel is on a very busy road junction and so there is traffic noise, however, didn't trouble me too much, but it will bother some people. Great facilities, good relaxing bar area and also the restaurant. The breakfast was the best we have ever had in a buffet style, the chef was very attentive, no trays of cooked eggs left under the lights for an hour here, he cooked them as needed at the counter. All the staff were brilliant. There is a car park which is very convenient but its a bit tight, difficult to get in and out of the car the spaces are very narrow. Perfect location, just 5 mins away from Highcross with loads of shops, bars and restaurants. will definitely stay here again

Stayed here with my family for 1 night while attending a kids Cbeebies show.Hotel was nice,nice rooms and location excellent.Swimming pool for the kids was a massive hit so thank you.But do not eat in restaurant.Service was very poor from staff who either didnt listen or couldnt understand and food was very average.Plenty of restaurants not far from hotel but after a long day thought it was best idea.Overall would definetly stay again and have no problem recommeneding this hotel also.

The location of the hotel is perfect. The staff is very professional and helpful, especially Nikki at the Reception, who made us feel home away from home and surprised us with a gift for our anniversary. The rooms are clean and in good condition. We would definitely stay here again.

A comfortable executive room with a nice king size bed; very clean and friendly courteous efficient service. Good value bearing in mind location although if you stay for longer than we did car parking charges could rack up! Only downside was that one lift packed up and even allowing for overnight possibilities, it took too long to fix. Hopefully management will give the maintenance engineers a good talking to as it created a tedious situation. As the lift situation is probably a one off this is a good central hotel so try it ( breakfast very good by the way) Hilarity1628

This was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in, in an hotel. The room was a bit tired, and ready for refurbishment, but the bed made up for it. Parking was convenient in the multi storey attached.
