A Review of The Jury’s Inn Hinckley Hotel in Leicestershire

3rd June 2017
Jurys Inn Hotel Hinckley

VIP, myself and the kids enjoyed an overnight stay with breakfast at the four-star Jury’s Inn Hotel in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

We were there on a Stay, Play, Explore break and we would be staying overnight at the hotel to make the most of the activities we had planned.

First impressions

Driving into the grounds of the hotel, we could tell it was big; we didn’t realise quite how big it was until we got inside and had a good old nose around though!

Parking was free and there were plenty of spaces to choose from, which made checking in hassle-free from the get-go.

As we walked into the reception area (a large, open space decorated in a favourable theme), I got a subtle waft of something very nice; the only way I could describe it is like the sort of smell you get when you walk into a spa – relaxing and inviting!

We were checked in quickly (and asked how many key cards we would like), before being told about breakfast (from 7am-10am) and extras before finding our room.

As we were en route we noticed just how big the hotel was – it seemed to have lots of dining facilities along with meeting, event and conference rooms. We even spotted a room decorated for a wedding, which looked stunning – and Girlwrighter told us that she would love to get married in a room like that!

The family room

The hotel has 362 guestrooms and we were staying in an Executive Family Room.

As we walked in I was pleased with the size of the room and we had two double beds set up for the four of us (two adults, two kids).

Like the main bedroom, the bathroom was also tastefully decorated and offered Gilchrist & Soames soap, shower gel and shampoo/conditioner products, which smelt divine.

Our view (from room 381) overlooked the car park and back of the hotel and I was tempted to park the car where we could see it, but I didn’t have any concerns for the safety of our vehicle so I didn’t bother.

There were a few things I appreciated about the room; the fact that it had an iron and ironing board, the dedicated space for the suitcases and the tea and coffee-making facilities – as us Brits like a nice cuppa.

And of course, there was free Wi-Fi so we all made good use of that while resting up for the evening and watching a spot of telly.

The beds were clean and comfortable and we all enjoyed a restful night’s sleep. The only think I would say was that there was no air-conditioning – and we happened to be staying on of the muggiest nights of the year!

When we checked with the reception about the air-conditioning, they did say they were able to sort us out with a fan for the night – and they made good on their promise, delivering it within a matter of minutes.
 

Other facilities

The hotel features a selection of leisure facilities (free to use) including a leisure club with a swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and fully equipped gym.

The pool was undergoing refurbishment during our stay; just as well as we were too tired to think about using it by the time we checked in.

In terms of dining there are a selection of choices including a Piazza Lounge, contemporary Triumph Bar plus Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill to choose from. Children’s meals, high chairs and cots are also provided year-round.

Interestingly, dogs are welcome at the hotel at a charge of £15 per dog, but are excluded from the internal public areas.

Prices start from £149 up to £185 per room per night including breakfast.

If you’re staying in Leicestershire on a family break, make the most of your break by opting for a Stay, Play, Explore stay which, for the price of £149, gives you a free night’s stay for a family of four including breakfast (with other hotels to choose from), plus a choice of three family-friendly activities.

It looks great there. The rooms are spotless and nice and roomy which is great. Free Wi-Fi is always good when you have children.
