Decent accommodation and good breakfast very conveniently situated a short distance from junction with M1 and a quick drive into Loughborough. But it is the friendliness of staff which we particularly rate.

Our son is studying at Loughborough University and living in student accommodation a short walk from the hotel. Consequently, it was perfect for our requirements and a bonus that he could have a free breakfast!

We stay as a family. From checking right through to check out the staff are super amazing. Our family room was a really big with a bathroom in between giving the room a divide very side full as we stayed with our teenager. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was nice to. Really enjoyed their vegan pastry. Teenager liked the WiFi connection. Everything was easy to use. Highly recommended stay. Can’t wait to return.

This is a decent hotel,communal areas are bright,clean and welcoming. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. A good choice and hot and fresh. The room had everything that was needed but could maybe do with a freshen up and the carpet being cleaned.

A great find as a ‘budget’ hotel. I needed a hotel a short distance from Donnington Park raceway and didn’t want to ku airport hotel prices. The room was of a premier in size and quality level, with a very comfy bed and a large wall mounted TV. It had aircon and was a comfortable temperature over night. The bathroom had a proper bath with a decent shower and quality Grohe fittings and the whole room was impeccably clean. Some improvement suggestions: 1) Make you beds even more comfortable with a good quality mattress topper. 2) Increase the shower water pressure and temperature slightly. It was good enough, but I like a hot powerful shower. I was up and out before breakfast so can’t comment on the food. But the communal bar area and the gym looked good. The best bit was the fantastic customer service upon arrival from Harry on reception. This guy is a model of how to do customer service in the leisure and travel industry, and is a star employee at the Link Hotel Loughborough. The moment I stepped through the door he greeted across the lobby from the reception desk with a big smile and was polite, enagaging, good humoured and made me feel welcomed and valued as a customer. I’ve stayed in many hotels with my job that cost 3-4 times this place and rarely have I felt so welcomed at a hotel. Harry is the best hotel receptionist I think I’ve ever encountered. @ Link hotel corporate management - please make Harry your ‘Head of Guest Experience Training Manager’ or something similar. You have a talented colleague there whose enthusiasm and competence should be recognised and rewarded and put to good use within your wider business. In summary - brilliant budget hotel, will definitely use again when in the area.

Thank you so much for such a stellar review, It's absolutely made my morning. We love when people make improvement recommendations as with your input we can only get better and we'll have a look at both your points there. Harry will be really pleased to read this and I will send it over to him as soon as I've finished typing this. He is actually a manager here and when you saw him would most likely have been covering the receptionists break, so don't worry he's very well valued with us and we know what an asset he is, we are biased though so it's great to hear it from guests such as yourself. We are so glad to hear that you'll be back when next in the area and really look forward to welcoming you back, I'll put a pint behind the bar for you, just let us know who you are at check in. Many thanks Samantha Gardiner Venue Manager
