Hotel Campanile Leicester3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We have stayed at the Leicester Campanile three times now but will not return for a fourth visit. It's always been "cheep n cheerfull" but they have crossed the line with cutbacks now. They have done away with cups, spoons and glasses in the rooms and put PAPER cups and wooden stirrers with the kettle. I as a tea drinker would like a cuppa in a cup not a paper wax cup. I would also like a glass for the side of my bed so i can drink water in the night. There was only one sachet of milk in our double room and only one towel and one face towel. Why not take the lifts out and put ladders in the lift shafts while your at it Campanile and save electric? The staff as always were great and the beds comfortable. The rooms are basic but ok for the price but you expect certain things of even basic hotels and paper cups are not it. We use hotels often but we will not use the camanile group again.
We used this hotel as a gathering place for a reunion event primarily as it's close to Leicester city centre. It's reasonably priced for what it is. It really needs a refurb as carpets are scruffy and tired and the bathrooms are showing their age with grime in the shower surround mastic etc. Staff friendly though and meals pretty good and well stocked buffet breakfast. Appreciated it's a cost issue but paper cups in the rooms aren't good and there's nowhere to hang anything, clothes or wet towels in the bathroom. A second chair in the bedrooms would also help. However, adequate for a weekend stay and would probably use it again next time the event is held.
First room had no heating (it was minus five outside) second one we were given had the heating on full and we couldn't turn it down, so window open all night, wasting heat into the frigid atmosphere. Bathroom was grubby (very old rather than dirty), mattresses were knackered. Breakfast was a highpoint, very good, and I did like the staff. Bit of a comedown from experiences of the chain in France, certainly wouldn't be a first choice next time.
Stayed her for one night, went out on a night out with my partner. Has free secure parking, staff appeared rude, not helpful. Noisy bed, cold room, draft through the window. Very very noisy hotel, guests running wild early hours of the morning ! Wouldn’t stay here again. Ooh and the bar is very very over priced !!!
Couldn't fault the hotel for the price. Rooms were just like that of a premier Inn. Clean and had a TV, hair dryer, towels. Staff were friendly and there is a small bar at the reception area. Recommend.
It's quite a smart, clean offering. This is my 3rd stay and it's got a lot going for it. Free wifi if you book direct and large free car park. However, I had a few moments where I felt uncomfortable with other guests on my floor. On all three nights there were guests in nearby rooms banging around, swearing, going up and down the corridor banging on doors, smoking dope. I can't really blame the hotel except that the price point must attract people like this. The chambermaids have OCD. The shower is off a mixer tap. Every day I'd spend ages edging it to the right angle to get the right temperature. Every day the chambermaids set it back to point straight out at the middle. And they opened the window every day so I'd come back from working outside all day to a cold room. Location isn't great. I did actually walk half a mile to a restaurant and the area did feel a bit dodgy. Pimped up cars cruising round, groups of lads in hoodies. Wont necesarily avoid this place but might shop around first.
Room was a dump....think this room was rented by the hour! The bed was disgusting, mattress awful, bed missing some wheels so not level, no cover around the base...badly stained. No plug in the sink. Extremely noisy with traffic ALL NIGHT long......terrible place. The breakfast is cooked individually.....however, I doubt the sausage I had , had any meat in it at all. The bacon was paper thin. I did complain about the bed and noise; to their credit, the young lady at check out did reduce my bill by 50%. So credit for customer service. I would however, rather sleep in my car than stay here again....
Stayed here for work, was in two minds what to expect as it was cheap. When I arrived reception were very welcoming and helpful, you can see how presentable the hotel is when you walk in - ie nice bar smells good too nice tv at Bar for football. The Lady took my vehicle reg and I didn’t have to pay parking went up to the room and when I opened the door I was pleasantly surprised. Nice clean room quite spacious however was a bit too warm but I am sure that can be adjusted. Bathroom was okay, all in all was good value for money- ordered food from restaurant and was allowed to put on a tray and take up to my room. Good food and fairly priced - i honestly think premier inn need to up their game and lower their prices to start competing with hotels like this. Thanks again
We stayed in this hotel last Friday night 3rd November, the reception area is quite nice, but as soon as you come out of the lift, the carpets were dirty, don't think they had been hoovered for days, the corridors smelt like a care home. The room wasn't too bad apart from the window which wouldn't close and the shower was in need of some tlc.ie grout. I didn't feel very comfortable staying there, although, the breakfast was very nice, and all in all, you get what you pay for, it was cheap, but it needs freshening up, the carpets need changing at the very least
Dirty corridors. Rooms were not cleaned at all. Very noisy and horrible area. Police sirens every 10-15 minutes. Beds are not comfortable at all. Some funny smell all over. We had rung and agreed the checkin time for 12 pm instead of 2 pm for 1 double and 1 twin. Arrived at 1.45 pm, only 2 doubles available. The whole hotel needs to be renovated. Thank GOD we only booked for 1 night. The floor in the corridor and the room were wet. AVOID AT ALL COST.
