“5 star stay!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The apartment at the cotton mill is beautiful and spacious. I stayed there for a week as I attended a course at the University of Leicester. The location is right in town where everything is so close and also a short distance to the University too. Was cheaper than a hotel and so much bigger and more comfortable.

I'll be back in Leicester soon and am looking forward to going back to my home-away-from-home! Thank you Stuart!!

“Another outstanding stay!”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was our 2nd stay at this beautiful flat. The location is perfect for being in the centre of Leicester. Shopping, pubs and restaurants are only steps from the apartment. The bus and rail line are also within a short walking distance. No car is needed if staying here.
The flat is beautiful! It is very clean and the bed is so comfy after a day spent wandering about. The kitchen is well equipped if you should choose to stay in and cook a meal. The washer/dryer is an added bonus!!!
Shirley and Stuart are very easy to deal with, have never had problem getting keys.
I cannot recommend this location enough! Just book it and you too will fall in love with the place.
Cheers,
Bob and Donna

“Whether you want to relax or explore, you won't find a better place in Leicester.”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This property has everything you need for a vacation, great for relaxing, near to shops, pubs, and museums, and within easy reach of buses and trains for exploring further afield. The kitchen is well equipped, and we even had Family over for homemade pizza. The owners are very friendly and helpful, especially when we came back to the States without our keys. Thank you Both.

“Fantastic location in city of Leicester, beautiful and clean!”
Reviewed 11 December 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband and I were lucky enough to rent this flat for the last 2 weeks of August and 1st week of September 2013. It is even more beautiful then the photos. The location is outstanding for visiting Leicester city centre and the train is about a 5-10 minute walk. There are several restaurants and pubs within a very short stroll from the flat. The flat itself is very modern with a beautiful kitchen and the bathroom is very spacious. The owner, is a very nice gentleman and very easy to deal with. He has even provided a washer and dryer, so handy! I cannot recommend this place enough, in fact we will hopefully be returning in the spring and will definitely be booking to stay here again.

“Well Equipped, Stylish, Comfortable, Centrally Located Appartment”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I stayed here with my band mates while we were recording an album at a studio in the city centre. It was the perfect place to return to in the evenings.
We were originally going to stay in a Travel Lodge or similar chain, but staying at The Cotton Mill saved the four of us a significant amount of money.

The flat was clean, modern, and thoughtfully equipped; there was plenty of cookware, a dishwasher and washing machine, spare bedding, internet access, tv plus dvd/vhs players and speakers, all in a very spacious living area adorned with contemporary film and literature paraphernalia.
The only irk we encountered was the lack of dedicated parking for the flat. We would definitely stay here again, and I would recommend the flat to anyone planning to stay in Leicester centre.

Thanks, it's good to be able to support creative people staying and working in Leicester.

While the apartment's facilities do not include a car parking space at the Cotton Mill, there is secure parking nearby at the NCP multi-storey on Welford Road, which is just a couple of minutes walk away.
