Stayed at the BEST WESTERN Leicester Stage Hotel
Its like going back in time, the decor is dated and my room smelt slightly?
Good points: Biscuits with tea and coffe facilities
Bad Points: Wifi extremely slow, virtually non existent
Food average, lacks flair
some of the tables in the bar area, were sticky?
Music played in restaurant unsuitable to environment
choose a room next to the WiFi router

Thanks for your review and I don't remember the 70s in obviously the same way you do!!!! And I was there....and the 60's.

We continue to spend money on the hotel having refurbished over half the bedrooms and bathrooms entirely in the past few years and have now reopened the Leisure Club and Swimming Pool, Sauna and Steam Room which are free for guests to use.
I would be the first to admit we arent "fine dining" and this was a choice we deliberately made recently to become more "populist" in response to our guests overwhelming requirements, and to date the proof as they say is in the pudding and our percentage of residents dining has shot up
Sticky tables was a housekeeping blip, and we have blipped them for this....sorry. We are upgrading our wi fi in order to accommodate the increased demand but this is becoming a common issue in all hotels as systems designed for guests to search the internet and do emails are now being used by guests to stream movies to their laptop, and as you are probably aware this dramatically slow everything down for others.
Whilst I enjoyed the 70's I dont think our hotel is really part of that era, and judging by the hotels success our guests disagree with you......or maybe just think the 70's were really cool.
