Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by salfifi Large Comfortable Double Room
The room was larger than expected up on the fifth floor. The bed was very soft and comfortable (how I like it) with a choice of soft or firm pillows.
I thought the bathroom was great with a door that closed to the bathroom or that swung all the way to separate the toilet cubicle if others wanted to still use the bathroom.
Also all the little extras that count, kettle with tea and coffee, flat screen tv and full length mirror.
Unfortunately we were out at a do that went on until the early hours so we overslept and missed breakfast. So I am unable to comment on that. But the staff on the front desk were welcoming and helpful. We were even advised that there was an ironing room on floor three as we had just bought a new shirt.
The only negative for me was that my sat nav was not up to date enough to find the entrance to this Holiday Inn, and I did have to circle the area a couple of times before I found the slightly hidden entrance.
However, it is conveniently situation for the town, which was what we needed. I would return if I needed to stay overnight again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mrnoluck Not as good as it could be
Hotel staff were fine and helpful, room was clean and tidy but the bed was very soft and tired, not good if you want a comfortable nights sleep.
The adjoining restaurant was very disappointing and very over priced, it obviously relies on the fact that most people are only there for one night. We had a burger which was tasteless and fish and chips, the fish was oven cooked battered fish and was awful, the garlic bread was still frozen in the middle and the best part of the meal was the tartar sauce.

This was our first time at a Holiday Inn Express, and were very pleasantly surprised, good value, very comfortable rooms, tv and tea/coffee facilities.Bit chaotic at breakfast time but there were a lot of people in the hotel at that time. Overall excellent value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dsquare Ideal location if attending events at Leicester Power Stadium
On the whole we enjoyed our 3 night weekend stay. We were disappointed that there are no evening meals available at the hotel at weekends. However, a 10 min walk from the hotel at the "Cattle Market" we found a couple of places to eat. The breakfasts were fine for us, but if you enjoy a cooked breakfast the choices are limited - sausages, scrambled eggs and beans. There were a couple of things that would have improved our room experience. The hairdryer in the room required a button to be depressed continually - for anyone with weak hands like myself, this proved to be impossible. Unfortunately there are no power points anywhere near the only mirror in the room where I could plug in my own hairdryer, styling brush or hair straighteners. A couple of hooks on the wall behind the room door for hanging up coats would have been welcome, as there is limited hanger space.

Stayed on 2 occasions recently for the Leicester v Watford matches. Used the bar both times before and after the games, on the first ocassion the Guiness could have been better. But great location for the stadium.
Ladywho checked us out on the second visit was really nice and couldnt have been more helpfull.

Having arrived early in the morning on a Saturday, the receiptionist staff certainly didn't want to go out of their way to accomandate a possiblility of a early opportunity too book in !! Therefore as we had committments during the day, we had to leave out belongings in the car (Our choice tho) and then book into our room after 10pm in the evening. Breakfast Sunday was a farce, one member of staff, and we found just a few sausages available, had to wait for bread to come out along with beans and scrambled egg, and cups etc !!
The juice machine has leaked all over the floor, and only then was another member of staff sent in to rescue the poor lady that was trying to keep things in order.
Will certainly consider other opportunities before we book this hotel again !!!
As we travel to Leicester a few times for the Rugby it's their loss !,

I have stayed here on several occasions. The hotel is clean, functional and relaxed. The standards of customer care are exceptional. Great staff who really care, led by an exceptional manager, Eugene.
I now always use in preference to any similarly named hotel in Leicester, which is in comparison tired, impersonal and not as good value.
