Ramada Encore Leicester

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here overnight for convenience as hosting a party nearby. We paid £75 for a double room but paid an extra £20 for a late check out as we knew we would be climbing into bed in the early hours. Room OK, clean but a pretty average stay but nothing less than we expected. However at 10 ish, housekeeping were banging on the door expecting us to have checked out. This was disappointing as the whole idea of paying an extra £20 was to have a bit of a lie in. It was nice to be able to sit outside and have a Costa coffee once we were up and about

Stayed here last night. Room 702 on top floor. Room ok but there were some cleanliness issues. First thing I noticed was a used plaster had been left on the bedside table. Not nice. (Reception took it away when they brought up an iron).The window was filthy. I mentioned this to one of the guys at reception after checking in, he said they did have a window cleaner but 'he'd never seen him himself'. Not cleaned regularly then?. After showering, noticed water marks on the shower screen (which of course, you'd expect). But then noticed that the marks were on the OUTSIDE of the screen, next to the toilet - so possibly splashed urine, and it clearly hadn't been cleaned for a very long time! This is not acceptable! Woke up in the morning and noticed something had been stuck on the smoke detector above the bed? Looked like damp tissue? Mentioned all of the above at check out and showed the receptionist the photos. All she said was 'I can only apologise, did you enjoy your stay in Leicester?' Lack of concern, and was left with no confidence in our feedback being acted on.

The hotel was nice and central but we suffered noise from late night revellers during the early hours as we had a room on the first floor at the front of the hotel. Room was modern and spacious, clean and tidy, with a good shower room with a large walk-in shower. Yhe bed was a bit too soft and felt warn and the wifi was OK but a bit slow at times. Reception staff were welcoming and helpful and we were able to check in a bit early as the room was ready. Reasonable value for money.

Stayed for one night. Lovely hotel, clean and modern. Great shower area, comfy bed. Pillows could have been better but acceptable. All staff who I had dealings with were lovely. I requested an iron when I checked in, when I got to room staff were there with the iron. Could have had breakfast for £10 but wasn’t hungry so can’t comment on the quality. Would use again.

Stayed here for one night and it's in a good location. The room was a good size and clean. The bed however was only a double which is OK but would have been better and more comfortable if it was a king-size. The mattress seemed to be a bit worn on the edges felt like there was wire sticking out. The bar is adequate but expensive and the fact that it's so close to the city centre means you can easily drink elsewhere. Finally the parking the nearest and most convenient is the NCP less than 2 min walk away but it's expensive £24 for 24 hours. You do get a reduced rate of £11 if you get your ticket validated by the hotel reception. However be warned if you need to move your car go elsewhere for the day etc you'll have to pay for another ticket and pay another £11 so the discount isn't as good

Great hotel with decent prices and good services, located in a very center of the City with easy access to most of the tourist places. Special thanks to Hotel Chef - Ala cart food was delicious and prices were Ok.

Stayed in the Ramada Encore for 3 nights. Spacious room with fantastic facilities. There was a problem with the air conditioning of the room, but after informing the reception, we were changed to another room. Fast check in and check out service provided. Very centrally located, only 5 mns walk to the train station and the bus station.

Helpful staff nice breakfast all round good experience my only gripe was the car parking was a bit awkward. We checked in in a large group of about 100 and no nonsense was easy . Room was nice temperature and clean . Shower was amazing bathroom / wet room clean and quite nice. Breakfast buffet is well worth the money.

This is a good choice for a short stay. It is clean, modern, and central. The cost at £79 a night is reasonable for the location. My room was s good size, had a great walk-in shower, and was quiet. Staff were friendly and professional. I didn't use any of the facilities so can't comment on thrm. No parking but there is an NCP car park close by where hotel guests can park for 24 hours for £11 which is good value. BTW, I don't agree with those who s said this car park is dirty or dangerous; seemed fine to me. I would stay here again.

Our room at the Ramada Encore Leicester was very comfortable, light and airy. The bathroom is also modern and has a walk-in shower for easy access. This is very much a business hotel but also a good choice for anyone just visiting the City. It is central for all the destinations in and around Leicester. The bus and train stations are only a short walk away.
