Why We Love This Hotel
- 4-star hotel just off the motorway, 20 minutes’ drive of the city centre
- East Midlands airport is just 19 miles away
- Indoor heated pool & leisure facilities on site
Just 5 minutes’ drive from the motorway, the 4-star Hilton Leicester’s watchword is definitely ‘convenience’. But those breaking up a long north-south journey or heading to East Midlands airport will find a warm welcome within a 20-minute drive of Leicester city centre.
If you have time to spare, there’s plenty to see in the area. The National Space Centre, Leicester Cathedral and the Curve Theatre, are all around 20 minutes’ drive away, and Twycross Zoo is just over 30 minutes away. Sports fans can head to Leicester City Football Club, Leicester Tigers rugby ground, or Leicestershire County Cricket ground, while Donington Race Park is half an hour away. And shoppers will find everything they need within a 10-minute walk at Fosse Shopping Park, one of the country’s biggest shopping centres.
Leicester city centre has plenty to offer foodies -- especially if Asian food’s your thing -- but the hotel has some options, too. Caffé Cino serves sandwiches, light lunches and afternoon tea, while Flavours Restaurant offers British and international dishes. You’ll find lighter bites (salads, burgers, etc) at The Court Bar, as well as Sky Sports. Facilities include a fitness centre, a heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room, and exercise classes.
All rooms have WiFi (charges apply) and tea and coffee-making facilities -- some rooms also offer easy chairs, sofas or garden views. Suites have king-sized beds and a separate living area with a sofa bed. Upgrade to the deluxe room package for bathrobes, slippers, a small bottle of wine, still and sparkling mineral water, and a selection of snacks.
