Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack1907 Very good hotel
Stayed for 3 nights for a business trip.
The hotel is in the middle of a roundabout, but very cleverly designed inside to feel comfortable.
Busy (in a good way!) bar and restaurant. Good pool, jacuzzi and gym.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good buffet breakfast.
Well equipped room and bathroom (even though I was on the standard rate, not the Executive rate).
All in all a very pleasant stay. Recommended.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kev41 dissapointed
the executive suite we stayed in wasn't what we expected. The mini bar was empty but still running, so not only couldn't we use it, its chewing up energy - what a waste ! There were massive cracks in the bathroom sink and the bathroom tiles with many of them coming away from the wall. The desk had a leather strip hanging off it.
our sleep was disturbed by the five police cars and one police van turning up with sirens to break up a fight in the bar
wont be staying again

I expected it to be busy this time of year but didn't think that it would be difficult and very noisy to get a drink in the bar and that the restaurant would be closed because of the hundreds of party goers. We were kindly moved to a higher floor room though to minimise the noise but I felt the facilities available were not as advertised and we had to go out for food and drinks.
The bed was very old and uncomfortable with a definite 'roll into the middle'
Lovely staff though and great breakfast

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Taylor66 Excellent location
While I have titled this review as Excellent location it may also be its drawback. Leicester has a new and vibrant city center with a fantastic mix of shops, both chain and independent. this hotel is just a couple of minutes walk away from this, so shopping and the vast range of restaurants are within easy reach, this may also be why throughout the night sirens from emergency vehicles can be heard. the double glazing just wasn't up to the job. We could also hear all the party goers leaving the hotel and we were o the 6th floor.
To balance this out, despite being fully booked the staff were superb. From the friendly and knowledgeable staff on reception to the efficient bar staff and the friendly cleaners who had a pleasant good morning/afternoon as you passed them.
Breakfast was of high quality and again the staff were welcoming and efficient.
So if you want a clean, friendly hotel within a stones throw of the city center, I highly recommend this one, just take some earplugs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Syah Not in a hurry to go back!
I stayed here for my Xmas party with work last Friday. I was quite dissapointed by the standard of the room and the cleanliness of the room! Defiantly NOT worth the price! The dust was around 2 mm thick on the dressing table which to be fair was not the staffs fault but the cleaning company the holiday inn employ! The bar staff on the evening were helpful except one who was quite unhelpful and miserable with "can't be bothered" attitude! In the morning I went to complain about the cleanliness of the room to reception the first guy I spoke to didn't seem to know what to do however when he got his manager she was quite helpful. Meal for the evening 4/10 breakfast 8/10

Reception staff were great and dealt with any queries quickly.
Room Service didn't answer the phone then made up my order I had to place with Reception.
Cleaning crew left heating on high, left the toilet seat up and left the lights on.....
And for the price you would expect free Wifi......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nikki47 Lovely staff :)
I stayed at the Holiday Inn, Leicester on 8th - 10th November, 2013, and it was a most enjoyable experience. The check in went smoothly, but both I and my friend had initial problems with our rooms, which I believe was due to a simple error, but we returned to the check in desk and M, the manager, apologised and upgraded us without any fuss.
The rooms were lovely, the beds comfortable and I have no complaints. The staff were all very attentive, very helpful and polite. The Holiday Inn itself has very good facilities, we took advantage of the pool and jacuzzi, and also booked breakfast on the final day, which was lovely.
The location is good, and very close to all amenities, and I fully intend to return here again in the very near future :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scarfell Lovely - got an upgrade!
Very comfortable and as in the title, I got an upgrade to a very charming room, large and beautifully clean. The staff were very friendly, however I was suffering from a cough & cold and did not feel up to so I did not have dinner or breakfast and cannot comment on that aspect. The free WIFI was excellent and worked without any problems which cannot be said of all HIG hotels.
