Stayed for one night as we were going to see a show at DeMontford hall. Booked a half board stay for £139 including the £10 to park and honestly one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. The staff were wonderfully friendly and very efficient and the room was spotlessly clean with a gigantic comfortable bed. We had our evening meal I had a lamb shank and my husband had fish and chips we both had a dessert as the half board gives you a two course evening meal and it was all really delicious. The buffet breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice and veggie sausage cooked to order for my other half. It’s so close to everything and we really enjoyed it. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you for a brilliant stay!!

Overcharged and car broken into in the hotel car park that charges £10 a day to keep cars safe. Hotel management has completely ignored emails and phone calls to rectify the charge. Even emailed and called Holiday Inn Corporate to raise a complaint, got a case number and still no change in 4 months - they can take money very easily but very bad at giving it back.

As an Ambassador member I find if I e mail (or telephone) a hotel in advance to make requests/ask advice I am always very well looked after - hence I always stay with IHG. This hotel is the exception ..... e mails are not responded to, telephones not answered. Hopeless.

Look no further! The Holiday Inn is the place be in Leicester. My stay was completely unexpected as my wife was admitted to hospital following a fall in the city centre. Our one day visit became eight days. The staff at this hotel showed care and understanding throughout my stay and made a difficult time less so. It is a comfortable hotel with modern amenities, close to the shops, restaurants and particularly important, the Leicester Royal Infirmary. I would like to express particular thanks and gratitude to Harjeet and his colleagues at the reception desk who were all extremely helpful.
