Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by Bowler1889 Smoking
When entering the hotel there was a prominent notice which said NO SMOKING IS ALLOWED ON THESE PREMISES. We were allocated Room 325 and on entering the room were aware of the smell of smoke and an ash-tray lying on the desk. When we checked out we were told that Room 325 is a SMOKING ROOM. How can this be when there should be no smoking on the premises?

Good staff, very friendly and helpful, handy for town centre. Bed a little on the hard side for me, but good size. Breakfast was self service and pretty good, only slight drawback, no restaurant at night at weekend.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Hotelstayer1 Very comfy!
2 of us stayed in this hotel for my friends birthday, there were meant to be 3 of us but 2 in the end so the hotel staff changed our room so that we had a double room and that gave us more room to get ready for our night out !
The room was spacious and facing out the Leicester football ground which had food places such as Nandos near by to have something to eat. The bed were really comfy and clean and so where the toilets and showers - only problem i had was with the shower that nearly scolded me as i did not know how to work it.
Breakfast was included but we didn't bother as there was no bacon for fry up.. and it was a bit early after a night out (which is expected)
We had to get taxis to the town which cost about £5-6 each way which was a bit expensive after we done it 4 times but not too bad considering all the traffic lights!
I was happy to find out that joining IHG rewards we could get a late checkout which wasn't till 2pm! So after going for a night out allowed us a lay in which was good.

Once we had found our way into the hotel car park after two attempts we were very happy with our stay. The hotel is modern, our room very clean and the beds comfortable. The receptionist on arrival was a little impatient whilst we tried to recall our car registration but that is our only criticism. The early breakfast was self-service and provided a quick and tasty start to our day. Overall an excellent choice and very close to the Walker Stadium where we attended the Bowls England Presentation Evening.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by nadkinjad Clean is about the best I can say
The best thing I can say about this hotel is that it was clean. However, I wasn't happy with the check-in service as the receptionist did not explain how the wireless system worked that I needed a code and the second receptionist gave me the code but did not explain that I would need a second code to use another device. In any case, there shouldn't be such a complicated system. Furthermore, nobody explained that the restaurant next to the hotel was shut down despite it being advertised in the hotel literature. As regards the room, we found the sofabed uncomfortable and the pillows much too thin.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by TheSkeeters Sunday evening
On a cold November evening, the staff treated us ok but were not "welcoming". We were not recognised a s Gold members or any of the usual facilities.
The hotel was OK, as we were a little worried after reading some of the reviews.
Most HIX now seem to offer some type of evening meal, this one did not - maybe because it was a Sunday.
We'll be staying again - shortly.

sink plug not working properly. Filled in card in room and went out for day. When we returned plug had been fixed. Thought this was good service. Very impressed.
