            Friendly staff in all areas of the hotel, wonderful warm greeting from reception on arrival and from cleaners in the morning as you check out.

            The use of a fridge in my room, the friendliness of the staff, I stay there regularly on business trips and always find everyone exceptionally helpful.

            The hotel room price was reasonable. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and a good size.

            The window didnt close properly and as the hotel is right next to the motorway it made a lot of noise.

          • Family with children

            it is ok, only internet too expensive for business people.

          • Single

            These simple places nearly always fail to live up to the low standards they set themselves. This was different. I received a very warm welcome here, it was efficient and friendly. I would definatey use it again.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Friendly staff, arriving after midnight presented no problem, free newspapers, clean, comfortable and spacious room.

            Nosiy if opened window but only to be expected as located beside motorway

            Wanted to stay a night but spent a sleepless night in one of the terrible beds I have slept.

            Yes, the Bed. Needs a lot to desire. You must look at this please.

          • Group of friends
            4.6

            The price and that's literally it.

            Terrible location, loads of noise from the m1, pillows not comfortable at all, rooms have no ac or even basic fans. No soap in any of the dispensers. Despite the cost would not stay here again ever, more then anything becuase of the road noise and poor facilities. Doesn't even have a breakfast bar. Generally a very poor hotel in every way and literally the only thing it's got going for it is the price, but even this isn't enough for me to stay here again. Would rather pay £20 more for holiday inn or the like.

          • Couple
            7.4

            The staff are very friendly, it was a comfortable clean room. And the price was very good.

            Just that when I booked the room I requested a late check out and nobody came back to me about it. Also it should specify on the website that there would be noise at the back of the hotel at night, I requested a room at the back and there was loads of noise from the truckers who were stopping for their break/rest so much so that I didn't sleep a wink the first night.

            I was under the impression that parking at this establishment was free. However we have just received a parking charge notice with a demand for £90.00. This should not be happening. I am now going to have to write to Parking Eye car park managment and will have to enclose a copy of our invoice to prove that we did indeed stay at the Days Inn Hotel Leicester. This is distressing and most inconvenient, and for this reason we shall not be booking at stay at this establishment again.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Price.

            It was stated there would be a couch in the room however there was not. This would have improved the facilities a great deal with a living/bedroom feel rather than just a hotel room.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            the sensible manner in which the staff dealt with my enquiries.

            the room was uncomfortabely hot, even at night when the temperature outside had dropped and the window was opened.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Easy check in. Basic accomodation which did meet me and my family needs, but comfort levels were not the same as Premier Inn hotels.

            I asked staff to give me aroom with 2 double beds- not a dbl bed and a sofa bed. My duaghter had a bad back ad needs comfortable beds. I was offered a room on the 2nd floor which I think conformed to that request. As I was about to leave receptiond desk witht eh keys to the the room, I was called back and told room is not now avilable and instead the room was changed. When I got to the room I found that it had a double bed and a sofa bed !...not a good start. My stay was initialy for 2 nights, on the second night I decided to extend my stay for another night. On friday night I spoke to the receptiond desk and he happily extended my stay for the same rate. The next morning (sdaturday mornign) the new reception staff started askign for more money (the same lady who changed mty room) and said the rate was different. On arguing with ther she stepped down and accepted the rate agreed by the night staff member. I immediately made payment with my debit card The next day, (sunday mornign) I was checkign out and the reception lady said I had not made payment for the extra day - she said it was not showing on her system. I produced my copy of my debit card reciept to prove payment had been made. I then left your hotel very unhappy and aggreived by the level of customer service !

            Room was comfortable and bed not too soft as with most other reasonably priced hotel chains. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good choice of food and facilities in Services area.

            Bit noisy but it is just off the motorway. We were on ground floor and people did walk past quite frequently, but not a big problem.

          • Family with children
            4.2

            Friendly staff, trying to cope under difficult circumstances

            Booked a family room, non available, were allocated 1 room with not even enough room to swing a cat. Eventuall an additional room was allocated "complimentry". Both rooms were unbearingly hot with the "complimentary" room temperature 32C as measured.
