    All in all, a very good hotel. Everything was available if you needed it. The staff were friendly. Very good location (about a 2 minute walk to the town center where alll the shops are) had parking. The lifts were well designed and extremely fast. Hotel room was always kept clean.

    The internet was extremely expensive. (about 7 pounds per hour, but check to see if theyy have changed this when you stay.) Other than that though, the hotel was perfect!!

    Superb

    The staff were very friendly and helpful particularly the lady in the spa who let us in very late on Friday night even though she was closing up and she still had time for a chat and to show genuine interest in our visit to Leicester

    The heat in the bedrooms

    Good

    The location and the lady at the front desk she was a diamond.

    The pool was freezing was with my wife and baby we were looking forward to her first dip in a pool. The water was so cold she started crying that was a bad start to the relaxing evening. The food menu was not that great and could do with improving and so could the restaurant. The room i booked was a king supperior so i expected it too be at a very good standard. The heating did not work room was freezing and we had a baby and it was a nightmare. I called front desk and they brought a portable heater not the best but under the circumstances had to do.

    The rooms were very lovely with King size beds. We had problems with the Hotel not knowing we were to have free WI-FI Internet & free car parking, the hotel had no record of this but they were very good and ensured we got these things for free

    The Hotel should have known Bookings.com gave us these things for free

    Superb

    Free upgrade. Staff very friendly and helpful Room very clean.

    Location-felt like we were in the middle if a roundabout which we probably were but couldn't figure out a safe way to cross the busy roads, had to just run when it looked quiet. Need a way to use overhead walkway to get onto hotel 'island' instead of it just going over it.

    Very good

    I found all staff exceptionally polite & helpful.

    My only criticism is that I chose this hotel over other cheaper hotels in Leicester because it had a pool & jacuzzi . Therefore I was very disappointed to find out that the jacuzzi was closed due to incompetency over the amount of chlorine added. Mechanical failures can happen to anyone anytime but this is just down to human error, either give staff better training or get rid of them simples

    It was centrally located and very clean. The staff were extremly friendly and we got a free upgrade to boot - what more can you ask.

    The pool was very cold and the jacuzzi was not working - shame as the family wanted to go for a swim.

    Very good

    Nothing really. We dislike hotels of this kind, that is to say big, multi-national chains. Our stay was purely convenience as we were attending a 40th wedding anniversay celebration. We chose this hotel as it was listed by our friends as being near to the location of the event. Fortunately we only paid £45 for the room.

    We certainly didn't welcome being woken at 5am on Sunday morning by some couple in the next room having a violent row. This went on for 30 mins. The staff were apologetic but the damage was done. If you stay in a hotel of this kind in a city centre, this is the sort of thing you should be prepared for.
