Paid Wi-Fi

A small gesture made free at many other hotels regardless of room, Wi-Fi is not included in the price of rooms at The Holiday In Leicester An additional fee is charged with an archaic sign in However, chain loyalty members receive Wi-Fi.

Paying for Parking

Similarly, while parking is available to guests, some felt the rate was too high, should be free, or included in the room price The car park is adjacent to the hotel.

Needs Refurb

Despite the hotel’s website stating it was recently refurbished, multiple guests feel the rooms were feeling tired and worn out.

Odd Access

The hotel is positioned convenient and close to the centre of the city, however some guests found the hotel being positioned on the ring road/roundabout an inconvenience from traffic noise as well as access for walking to town.
