        Location, location, location !!”

        Stayed at the Holiday Inn to watch Leicester City play for my son’s 17 th Birthday. The location is brilliant, literally yards from the stadium. The room was clean, comfortable, well equipped and extremely quiet. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as it is excellent value for money.

        Weekend Stay”

        This hotel was a fantastic find. Great value for 2 nights including breakfast. I can't believe how quiet it was. Hardly any noise at all from outside or inside the hotel. Very pleasantly surprised. There was nothing going on at the footy stadium, or that would have been a different story I'm sure. Staff were very helpful and friendly. They booked us a taxi into town for a meal on Saturday night (Knight and Garter - highly recommend). Taxi was about £5 one way. Very good. Breakfast was plentiful and a very good selection. Both mornings we ate at 9am and there was loads of food available. Excellent. Highly recommend the hotel.

        Convenience a massive plus”

        Easy to locate, clean, friendly staff

        The hotel is clean and comfortable, and very easy to find. It is convenient for a one night stop but there is very little to offer in the immediate vicinity. The wi-fi is pretty appalling in this age of technology, with just 1/2 hour being free then £6 per 24 hours. It's pretty stingy. On-site parking although only until midday on the day of checkout. That said, I would use the hotel again and recommend it to others for a one night stop over.
