Hotel's Favourite
Originally we booked a room for 2 adults, 1 child for 1 night, we then decided to add an extra night so we booked an additional night on line.. Our aim was to get to the Premiere Inn Glenfield, explain that we would like to be kept in one room if possible rather than move to a different room, due to booking the rooms at different times . The gentlemen at Reception Hamad, was amazingly friendly and helpful ensuring that we could have the one room for the both nights, however when we got to the room the toilet broke and was gushing water making a really loud noise. Again, when we went to the reception Hamad was amazingly helpful, considering it was super busy, and every room was booked apart from one room that was not booked due to the shower being broke..he managed to sort it so we were given both rooms!!.. then we could use the shower in one room and keep the other for sleeping in...in addition to this we were also given complimentary breakfasts for the following morning. The next day we were able to sample the breakfast, I am vegan, so they ensured I had my food cooked to order ensuring no butter was on the mushrooms and that the vegan sausages were cooked separately ...very considerate . The lady that was in charge, Sallyanne was wonderfully professional, friendly and super welcoming, the chief Paige made sure my order was cooked to perfection, which it was...we were so impressed.Although we did not need any lift facilities, this was available in the restaurant for those using wheelchairs, as I work for a Charity organisation for AgeUK, I was impressed that this was there, plus on a different element there is a children's corner with screen game consoles, soft toy grabbers (Claw machines), a sit on child's ride also. That day we were informed that another room had come available, one that we could use as it had a working toilet and shower, for our inconvenience we were given another complimentary breakfast for the following day! Both Tony (The Manager) and Brandon (reception) were so helpful and super friendly...which really we found was true of all the staff there..smiley, friendly and helpful, what ever training they have been given for customer care was working well. I would very much recommend a stay here, the rooms were clean, the staff are wonderful and if anything goes wrong they deal with it professionally and with a kind heart and good grace. Due to our excellent experience we have decided to revisit Leicester and stay here in the next couple of months...and pay additionally for the breakfast it was sooooooo good!.

We stayed here as we were visiting family, check in was easy the young lady on reception was very helpful, we stayed on a Saturday and was pleasantly surprised how we didn’t hear any noise from other rooms as weekend stays can sometimes get busy. Nice size room and plenty of parking. Would definitely stay again

We stayed here for two nights (Sunday and Monday). I'll split this into a review of the hotel and a review of the breakfast. Hotel - parking is no problem, plenty of spaces available. Interior of the hotel and reception are well maintained and the receptionist we dealt with (Nic) was helpful and friendly. There were three of us (wife, son, and I) so there was a double bed with a single 'sofa' bed for our son. The room was neat and tidy, the bathroom was also very nice and looked quite new. Now the issues. (a) Bed - I'm not sure what mattress they were using but it was awful. I woke up both mornings with backache and could not get comfortable during the night. (b) Pillow - One pillow each with a space pair in a sealed bag in the room. However, I'm not sure what the pillows were filled with, but I suspect it was 90% air because there was no support whatsoever, even when I tried two of them. Top tip: bring your own pillow! (c) Shower - Don't get me wrong, the bathroom was very modern but there were several issues. If you left the shower head in the bracket, the water came out fine albeit a bit slow. Temperature wise, no problem. However, if you took the shower head off then most of the water leaked where the hose met the shower head. (d) Shower cubicle - This was an 'open' shower with a large panel of glass to stop the water going all over the floor. Except it didn't. The glass could have done with being 6 inches longer or better still have a sliding door to close off the whole cubicle. Water went all over the floor. (e) Extractor fan - I think this was powered by a couple of AA batteries as it was nowhere near powerful enough to extract the moisture. Consequently, you exited the shower to a mirror covered in condensation. Breakfast - where to start? The breakfast is hosted by the pub next door to the Premier Inn, Gynsills Farm which is part of the Farmhouse Inns brand of pubs. It's a pub that's stuck in the 80's judging by the decor but it does have loads of seating outside so in the summer I suspect it's absolutely rammed. However, in this instance there were very few people for breakfast. The breakfast itself costs £9.50 for an unlimited cooked breakfast and £7.50 for and unlimited continental breakfast. According to the glossy paperwork in the hotel room the former consists of the following: Back Bacon Rashers - very fatty, sitting in fat Premium Sausages - dry and I suspect far from premium Veggie Sausages - nowhere to be found Eggs scrambled, fried, poached or boiled - scrambled were dry on top and sitting in liquid, fried were sitting in fat, poached and boiled were nowhere to be found Hash Browns - these were OK Black Pudding - not a fan of this but from looking at them I think they'd have made great frisbees Closed Cup Mushrooms - were missing on the first morning but appeared on the second morning Halved Grilled Tomatoes - small tomatoes and looked dry Baked Beans - been sitting around for a while so had that 'skin' on top The latter, continental breakfast, consisted of a lot more on paper than was available. I'll not bother listing everything, just look at the photo I've uploaded to see what was missing. Worthy of mention regarding the continental breakfast is the following: (a) Coffee was the same instant rubbish that was available in the hotel rooms. I would have expected, perhaps not Costa quality, but at least better than a sachet. (b) In other Premier Inns that we've stayed in (including two others in Leicester) the way to toast the bread is on the conveyor belt toaster where you feed the bread in, it rolls along, flips over, and comes out at the bottom. Here you had a couple of old double toasters that were too small for the bread supplied and didn't toast it evenly. If you wanted a croissant or pain au chocolat you had the choice of having it cold or holding it above the toaster to warm it up. (c) There was only one type of bread available which I think was the malted type but who knows?! (d) No 'American style buttermilk pancakes' anywhere. (e) No fresh fruit or fruit mix anywhere. (f) Only one type or milk available (I assume semi-skimmed). (g) Microwaveable porridge was supplied but no microwave. Now I understand there may well be shortages of food, etc. due to lack of delivery drivers, etc. and if that's the case I would also expect Premier Inn to reduce the cost of their breakfast accordingly as you are not getting the choice that should be available according to their paperwork. I wouldn't recommend staying here based on the above. The better breakfasts tend to be the ones that are catered for within the Premier Inn itself rather than from a third party.
