Hotel Campanile Leicester

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good value for a basic Hotel, check in was good, lots of parking, 10 minute walk to main centre. Rooms were basic but comfortable. Our room only offered a Shower. Only 2 bath size towels, no floor towel, so be careful when stepping out the Shower. Breakfast a little prices for the standard of accommodation. Ok for an odd night. We were on the car park side of the Hotel, very noisy with people talking, Vehicles moving about late at night and early morning, assume this must have been deliveries! Rooms very hot, no Air conditioning,

Well the staff were friendly and efficient The hotel is located within a few mins walk of town centre. With its own car park Rooms are small and rather tired. And rather hot too Breakfast not worth the £8!!! But if your after a cheap room. Well it's ok

We've been to a number of hotels in Leicester (son at uni here) so this was a 'let's see what this is like'. Hmmmm. Set right on the ring road so going into town meant walking along said ring road....not the nicest of locations for starters. But. Clean & neat & tidy...perfunctory. A rather business-like greeting from the receptionist & an extremely limited bar...I think this place is more for someone literally just wanting a bed for the night-en route to somewhere else.

I guess when you look at the price of this hotel there have to be questions. why so cheap? I can't remember paying much more than £50 per stay and to be fair I have stayed here many times. Its not a luxury hotel, but its not a travel lodge. It has a quirky bathroom with odd shaped taps, an irritatingly small desk with a small tray of tea and coffee packets. Decent TV too, comfy bed, decent bar, decent food and easy to get into the city centre bars and restaurants. It is where I stay if i just need a bed for the night, and a good nights sleep at that.

I stayed for just one night because I came to shop for spices in the super Indian groceries that abound the City. I checked out various hotels and I chose the Campanile because I know it has a good standard of accommodation and I thought the price I paid was reasonable bearing in mind that some hotels for the same 3-4 star rating are more highly priced. The restaurant is good too and breakfast choice and quality was good also! I would stay here again.

This hotel is cheap and cheerful! The rooms are small but still comfortable. It's easy to reach by road with some free onsite parking and is in walking distance to the city centre. The hotel itself looks like student accommodation and feels like it inside as well. Only problems we had with the room was that the only available plug was dodgy and they only provide you with one towel, which makes no sense when a twin room is clearly for 2 people... We asked for another towel but were refused.

We stayed overnight on 10 June on a B and B basis as we were attending the World Gin Day event at the National Space Centre.There was ample parking when we arrived at 3pm - this had been a worry seeing other reviews. Hiwever, llater on when we went out people who were obviously using the huge supermarket over the road were using the carpark, so this needs addressing. The reception staff member was welcoming and efficient and the room was clean and adequate for our needs. The carpark and entrance is locked in the evening and there was a buzzer system for us to gain entry at about midnight when we came back in. The hotel is well placed for the city centre, but walk with confidence, as we passed a few what can be described as 'edgy characters' as walked in. I wouldn't risk walking at night, get a cab! Once past the bus station all was fine though. We had the full breakfast option on our booking which offered a continental buffet style and cooked breakfast, you can opt for lighter bites. The restaurant was well run, food lovely and presented nicely. No rush to get you in and out. There was free wifi if you booked with the hotel, or vouchers to purchase if booked through a third party. Would recommend this hotel, especially due to city centre ( with parking) and National Space centre locations.

For the cost @ £39.00 our room was excellent. Greeted very nicely on arrival, easy check in, polite staff behind the bar and the restaurant food was actually very good. Easy check out and no complaints. Jan Smith

Reception staff were kind - that's the best that I can say. I had a dreadful stay here - limited parking so had to park on the other side of the dual carriageway and trek across the crossing with suitcase, laptop & handbag leaving my car in a pay & display in a dark,disused lot. No problems at reception. The room was cramped with a sticky carpet, fire notices stuck on with plasters & the kettle had boiled milk in it. Reception found another room for me - cramped, tacky carpet, chipped bath - just not very nice. Although I was on a higher floor, there appeared to be a lot of activity in the car park throughout the night, then cars blocked in and unable to leave in the morning. I would not recommend that anyone stay here, and male colleagues have expressed the same opinion. Sorry Campanile, I really expected better. My booking was for 2 nights but I cancelled the second night and stayed elsewhere.

Stayed here for 2 nights. It was clean but basic. The negative was the bed, not very comfortable and has probably seen better days but it was bearable for 2 nights. There was paper cups provided for tea and coffee which aren't the best but ok for making a quick drink. The location is great a 5 min walk and you're in the town centre. The best thing about this hotel are the staff. They are really helpful and friendly. They provided ice for drinks we were having in our room and plates and cutlery for our takeaway and always with a smile. We had breakfast the 2nd morning and I have to say it's one of the best breakfasts I've had in a hotel and well worth the money. Shelly who worked in the restaurant was lovely and made sure everyone had everything they needed and was friendly and chatty. Overall a good stay and I would stay again in I returned to Leicester
