    “Disappointing and cold”

    Thanks for the opportunity. We paid in total 195 pounds for a three night stay on 28th /12/11.

    Following booking we were given an 'upgrade' from the 'hub' to the Leather Factors building on rutland street. Although there was no discernable difference on the internet we were told the windows were much nicer. Sure enough upon arrival they were but they also did not keep the heat in the room or exclude the noise from the street. Crockery and cutlery were not clean. There was only 1 mug (!). plastic pink bowls were provided rather than ceramic (presumed bought by other customers). Though the information in the booklet was very useful (to people who do not know leicester) we found it omitted the one thing we wanted to know - how to regulate the heating. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was great but made the rest of the accomodation cold. The seating and floor also helped make the accomodation feel cold being made out of leather and laminate respectively. Glass tables did not help and in fact constituted a hazard since the top was not sealed. The general cleanliness of the cupboards and bathroom was poor. The furniture in the room was not entirely fit for purpose or thoughtful in any respect. The sockets and cabling for the television was very poorly displayed and also constituted a hazard for small children. It was very nice to have sky sports/movies on demand but this did not make up for the rest of the apartment. Overall the apartment looked poorly represented considering it is not that old and could do with considerable investment to refurbish/redesign. We understand the pressure to make the furniture look like designer art deco inspired but it is not welcoming or comforting at all. We would not reccomend staying here again.
