Having wanted a short leisure break away from home, we decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Leicester, and it was perfect as usual. We usually stay here now and again for some relaxing time and enjoy
their leisure facilities.
Check in was fantastic, simple and fast, very helpful receptionist who was very friendly and polite, within a few minutes, got the keys to our room.
Room was in a great condition, looked modern/stylish, yet both clean and hygienic. Beds were comfortable, yes, they aren't at the top end level but more than enough for a comfortable nights sleep.
Dinner's experience was a bit up and down, food was great, but service was very long, signs of no staff after eating, and very long waiting times for food/desserts. Other than that, quality of food was ok.
Breakfast was superb, love the buffet system, choose what you want, how much you want and best of all, a wide variety.
The only problem encountered at the hotel we had was our room was very cold, the air system I'm guessing is stuck on an "Air conditioning mode" which means you can only turn it on and off. You can't enable the heating mode. A quick chat with reception and by the time we got back, we had an electric heater that kept us warm during the night. I'm pleased to see the hotel keeps up to their words (most other hotels say yes..yes but don't do anything in which you have to keep chasing them up)
Checkout was a breeze, quick paperwork to sort out and that ended our enjoyable stay! [Less]
