Score from 335 reviews Very good
Location good and breakfast also of a good standard. Bedroom comfortable but bathroom of lower standard.
1. Paying an extortionate price for a mixed grill comprising a small piece of gammon, a sausage and some bacon!! 2. Noise from night club opposite the room until late. 3. Two lights in bathroom not working and reported but not dealt with 2 days later.
Wifi was easy to use and quick.
Room was the smallest I have ever slept in. Bath panel was broken. The double bed left a gap of 6 inches between the bottom of the bed and the wall meaning that you had to turn sideways and squeeze through the gap to get to the toilet. Kettle was dirty.
Room was a good size,bed comfortable.
The Staff member when checking in was extremely helpful. The bed was very comfortable. The location was fantastic for my needs.
The shower was not particularly strong. The room was a little small and had a bit of a fusty smell at first- not a big problem as I just left the window open.
Breakfast was not good!!
Attention to detail, nice cushions on the bed. Lots of room and include extras including iron and ironing board, hairdryer etc. Couldn't fault it.
Well positioned to come and go from but fairly grim view from the windows (grey walls). Tv was annoying to use going through an inhouse navigation system that wasn't the most user friendly.
Recently visited our daughter who is studying at Demontford university this hotel is perfectly placed is in walking distance of the campus and is centrally located for shops restaurants ect train station is very close but we drove the hotel has a car park it was perfect for us and we will definitely use this hotel again .
Very spacious. Good breakfast and comfortable bed. Parking reasonable cost .
Poor shower. Rooms newly decorated but colour theme a little dark and depressing.
Great location for city centre shopping, King Power Stadium, Leicester Cathedral, museums and restaurants. Car park on site only £7 a day for residents. Lovely breakfast. Lovely clean room. Fabulous old building.
The Mercure Grand has been around a very long time having been built between 1897-98 and is located on Granby Street some 700 metres from the main railway station. To me it always reminds me of the classic railway hotels such as St Pancras but on a smaller scale. However it is still a big hotel dominating Granby street. Its convenience can’t be doubted – close to shops, bars and a local Tesco Metro and Sainsbury, the railway station and not far from Welford Road, the home of Leicester Tigers which was the reason for my visit. The hotel is still very elegant inside and Mercure have given it a very good face lift in recent times. Reception is immense and runs into a large open lounge which is next to the bar. The room I had on the first floor was a family room at the back of the hotel (standard double) with 4 beds and consequently had a big floor area with a slight step downwards (signposted on the room door). Bathroom was a good sized but quite utilitarian in feel – it could use a different colour scheme to ‘up’ the attractiveness factor. TWe had breakfast at the ‘deal’ price of £10 each instead of £13.95 each in the large function room downstairs. That too could do with some extra lighting to brighten it up in the morning. The food was good quality but not the best breakfast ever – limited choice but at £10 was similar to café or High Street quality. There is only 1 lift and in busy periods you will find yourself using the very broad staircase. The staff were very attentive and welcoming and friendly so 5* to them.The weekend we stayed there was also PonyCom – a convention for My Little Pony enthusiasts and the staff did well to cope with 3000 expected visitors + the guests staying over. Parking out back of the hotel was excellent and at £7 overnight a reasonable price.
The grey sludge colour in the corridors; some of the staff dressed in a uniform of shirt sleeves and braces - was almost scruffy.
not a lot
Television faulty, bathroom /bedroom dated. bathroom not cleaned properly
Very quiet so excellent nights sleep - no slamming doors like some other hotels. Very central location to explore Leicester. We're given sky room on 5th floor where rooms were modern and comfortable
Only one towel provided. Also very little sugar & milk given for tea/coffee (not a big issue and receptionist kindly gave us free parking)
Friendly and polite reception staff. Rooms clean and comfortable. Room and breakfast value for money. Furniture a little 'tired' but nevertheless everything was very good.
A rather dozy barmaid who couldn't get anything right and in her head was very ' busy' with about three people in the bar!...albeit she was very pleasant.
Price, Location and staff
The noise outside until 5am meant poor sleep quality. The hotel have fitted secondary glazing, however it did little to reduce the noise to an acceptable level
the bar area bedroom staff
My wife and I stayed for 1 night prior to watching Leicester v Burnley. Totally impressed with the hotel, we have never slept in such a large bed.Offer price was fantastic and even offer on breakfast was really good. All the staff were excellent and went out of their way to help. Leicester centre only a minute away with some lovely restaurants and bars. Burnley got a draw and we had a lovely weekend, cannot say better than that !!!
Very friendly and helpful staff from the moment we walked in to the time we left , very clean and spacious room and excellent wifi free !!!!
Nothing not to like !!! Even the drinks were at a goo price !!
Room was a nice size; good walking distance from the Athena where I was attending a dinner; lady on reception was very nice; housekeeper came to help me zip up my dress and was very nice too
I was unable to connect to the Wi-Fi; The smoke alarm above my bed kept flashing and waking me up; it took a while to actually just get a channel onto the TV
The staff at reception are friendly and efficient, certainly no complaints there:-)
No coffee, milk etc but two different types of coffee machines in the room? TV would have been more comfortable if could have been viewed from the bed. The price relates to the grandeur of the building itself, but room for room is not compareable with somewhere like the Premier Inn.
The location was what we wanted. The room and ensuite were spacious and comfortable.
The noise from a wedding party at the hotel, which finished at 1:00 am. Then opposite our room in the street there was a bar which stayed open till 3:00 am and the noise from there was as if it was in our room.
Even though situated right in the town centre, the room was very quiet and therefore an excellent nights sleep.
Expensive prices in hotel bar.
Central. Left my house to binge drink without worries and I binge drank without worries.
Noisy club in a so a lack of sleep. Hotel tired and in need of refurbishment even phone in the room filthy.
Other than the single glazing everything else was perfect!
...Unfortunately, there were thousands of student freshers larging it out on the Main Street until well after 3am! Two Leicester hotels in two nights ...no sleep!
