The staff are very welcoming and helpful and most of the building is good but looking 'tired' such as marks on he walls in the bedroom. We have one major complaint which is the state of the mattresses which are the sort that makes rolling into the centre of the bed impossible to counter and therefore sleep difficult. Unfortunately that...

However on arrival I found there was no evening meals unless bought from service area KFC Burger King etc. No Bar to relax in during the evening. Cooked breakfast was again offered...

Room was clean and comfortable for our overnight stay. We have used Leicester Forest East on many occasions for overnight stays. The rooms have always been serviced and clean apart from on one occasion when there was a leak in the bathroom. We were quickly moved to another room.

I got to my allocated room to find the door wide open, with a chair wedging the door open. The window was wide open on a stormy night, the net curtains damp with...

We stopped of here for a night. Staff really friendly and helpful however the place is and bit in need of a lot of TLC. Ordered Buffett breakfast and the strangest thing is that you can not get tea or coffee with it. How bizarre is that! Would we stay again? Perhaps but not for breakfast!
