Beautiful day. Room has high ceilings and sound system didn't cope well so speeches were lost and no one could hear what was said-very disappointing. Costly for drinks. Food was good and staff friendly. Lift between floors for disabled but no one to help when downstairs door kept open so lift wouldn't work. The day was so lovely that this...

I knew before I came that the building was a bit of a mix - more an event location than a hotel, with no restaurant or even breakfast facilities, but I didn't mind that. Had to buzz to be let in and reception is only manned part of the time. The room itself was also a strange mix. After the...

Hi Brian, Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your trip to our beautiful City and for taking the time to review us. Being a boutique hotel with four bedrooms, you’re right, we don’t offer breakfast or have a restaurant on site, however, as you mention we do provide orange juices and breakfast bars in all of our...

We chose this place to be the venue for our wedding and I have to say we couldn't have made a better choice. The venue is stunning and the staff were amazing. We do need to say a special thank you to Carly who helped organise everything and also kept us calm in the lead up to the big day....

Well the venue is lovely for a wedding, Gorgeous staircase and beautiful function room upstairs, Considering its in the city centre there was no outside noise, There is enough room for a band and dance floor in the function room, My only issue with the venue was the majorly overpriced drinks.

Came on Bank Holiday Monday for their British Afternoon Tea which was held in the ballroom. Beautiful setting and a wonderful afternoon. Nice little touches on the table such as a jug of water, butter as well as cream and jam for the scones. I emailed for a special request of sandwiches which they did. Lovely pink lemonade served upon...

Visited here for a funeral 'wake' . The buffet was excellent as were the staff who were synthathetic but attentive. The venue although being in the centre of Leicester seemed miles away, almost countryside . Would recommend if you want to go through the doors and enter "your world"

What a find! Quirky old building - basically a conference centre but it also has a few hotel rooms. We particularly appreciated the fridge, pint of fresh milk, orange juice and breakfast cereal. There is no catering on the premises, but the location is so central it doesn't matter at all. The only down side for the less fit is...

Excellent location and huge rooms. Very grand building and whilst some areas need updating it is a very high quality hotel. The hotel is in the centre of Leicester so handy for plenty of attractions. If you are looking for something slightly out of the ordinary then this is the place
