It may lack some of the character of a country house hotel, but the 4-star Leicester Marriott is built for comfort and (at 4 minutes’ drive from the M1) convenience.
The hotel is in Enderby, five miles from central Leicester, and the most likely reason to choose it is because you need an overnight stay to break up a north-south journey. But if you’re in the area, there’s plenty to see. Nearby attractions include the National Space Centre, Leicester Cathedral and the Curve Theatre, all around 20 minutes’ drive, or Twycross Zoo, just over 30 minutes away. Sports fans can head to Leicester City Football Club, Leicester Tigers rugby ground, or Leicestershire County Cricket ground, all close by, or to Donington Race Park, which is half an hour away. And if it’s retail therapy you want, the Fosse Shopping Park is a 10-minute walk away.
Central Leicester boasts a host of dining options, but back at the hotel, Mixx Restaurant serves a menu of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine from Monday-Saturday, while the Atrium Lounge offers snacks, coffee and tea throughout the day. If you’ve overindulged in one of Leicester’s many Indian restaurants, additional facilities include a gym, heated swimming pool, steam room and sauna.
Each air-conditioned room includes a 32-inch flat-screen TV, a workspace and free WiFi. Upgrade to a spacious Executive Room or One Bedroom Suite to gain access to the Executive Lounge, which includes perks such as complimentary hot and soft drinks and a free hot breakfast buffet.
