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...

A perfect venue that offers accommodation for the bridal party for the wedding eve , this city centre based building offers a central wedding, dining,and entertainment room with additional reception rooms for extra activities. Very efficient and friendly staff could not be more...

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...

Hello Sue and Phil, Thank you for finding and choosing to stay with us, it was a pleasure to have you. We do have a lift for customers, but this only goes up to the first floor Ballroom and not all the way up to the bedrooms which are on the second and third floors. Thank you for reviewing us,...

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

A last second change of plans meant I needed a place to stay for my partner and I a few weeks ago. We checked out a few comparison websites (as well as your standard hotel chains) and were quite dismayed at the prices for a last minute booking. The City Rooms popped up as the cheapest option, pictures were nice...

Booked this venue due to the location and something different from the usual. Excellant central location; friendly staff. Room clean and spacious. Initial impression very good but room seemed slightly tired; poor bed mattress, lack of lighting in the bathroom. Some noise from the town hall chimes but bearable otherwise quiet. Ideal for the odd stay.
