Grafton House, hotel in Leicester

Situated on the outskirts of Leicester city centre, the Grafton House is just 5 minutes’ walk from Leicester Railway Station. It offers free Wi-Fi throughout and a bar.

The owner is lovely and extremely helpful. Assisted with parking (upon request) and even upgraded me which was so lovely of him! The beds are big and good window size. Bathrooms are clean and there are loads so not a problem with sharing. It's a B&B but they stopped doing breakfast after the pandemic (totally reasonable) I'd love to see them bring that back if possible :)

FAQs about hotels in Leicester

Great Shopping and Greater Nightlife

Multicultural Leicester has a vibrant feel, partly due to the large student population of De Montfort and Leicester universities. The latter lines Victoria Park, whereas Abbey Park covers both banks of the River Soar and houses ruins of a 12th-century abbey that was the burial site of Cardinal Wolsey.

Richard III was also buried in the city and a commemorative statue sits in Castle Gardens, by the Newarke Houses Museum and St Mary de Castro Church. St Nicholas Church overlooks the Jewry Wall Roman bath remains, while the tall-spired cathedral is next to the half-timbered, medieval guildhall.

Nearby are the Highcross and Haymarket shopping centres, as well as Leicester Market – Europe’s largest outdoor covered market. The city centre is packed with restaurants and bars, and the Golden Mile of Belgrave Road has a wealth of curry houses and jewellery stores. It also hosts the largest Diwali celebrations outside India.

Other entertainment venues are Upper Brown Street and the futuristic-looking Curve Theatre. Equally modern in design is the National Space Centre, while the National Gas Museum is near King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City FC. Leicestershire Golf Course is one of 8 surrounding the city.

The Leicester accommodation on Booking.com includes luxury hotels with spas, guest houses near the train station and cheap inns with parking.

    Leicester has a super clean city center with lots of food and bar options. Otherwise the stores close at 6pm and the streets are filled with some rough elements. Nevertheless I had no trouble and I can highly recommend this city as a great operating base if you want to see the surrounding area. My favorite destination was Brughley House. I also went to Peterborough, Nottingham, Haddon Hall in the Peak District, Birmingham, and Market Harborough. Leicester has frequent trains running to all of the above and has many direct trains daily from St. Pancras. The London ticket is expensive though at about $90 roundtrip or return as they say. Even the trains in the region were a little expensive for my taste. Hard to get anything for less than $20 round trip, even places 15 minutes away. All is all, you will get way more bang for your buck in Leicester than in London.

    I was born in Leicester but moved away 13 years ago, I was back visiting family and was showing may partner around for the first time. The place had improved substantially and there was lots to do and places to eat and drink. It was a pleasant surprise to see how much money had been spent improving the place i grew up in.

    Leicester is an everyday English town.

    Leicester is an everyday English town. It might be a city, I don't know, but that's probably semantics. It's really nothing at all to want to visit. I suppose if you live there it's functional, just like a broken kettle can still hold water, but it's not a 'place to visit', which probably sums up most places to be fair. There's not a lot else to say, really. If you have a reason to go, you'll go but it is overshadowed by bigger and better e.g. Nottingham, Birmingham, Coventry, Peterborough.

    Leicester is a vibrant place, outstanding for the great mix of races and cultures that happily coexist in the city. There is so much to do and see, we enjoyed the New Walk Museum, Mexican fiesta in Silver Street and a wonderful authentic Turkish meal at Nazar in Evington Village this visit. There are lovely parks, and a walk in Bradgate park is a must, better still climb up to ‘Old John’ if you’re able. A good natured fun city, love to visit anytime.

    This was a booking made on behalf of my brother and sister in law. Communication with the hotel was very smooth to ensure that their stay was enjoyable. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the bedrooms very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. The location is perfect for shopping and the main tourist places in the city centre. The staff were superb throughout the stay. A big thank you to everyone at the Novotel for making the stay so special. Would definitely use on any return to Leicester.

    The hotel is a good deal for its price, I enjoyed my stay there. The only challenge I had was its distance from the city centre. Its not walkable. You either have to use a bus or Uber (cost around GBP 14.5)
