TSB Bank

1 Cavendish Rd, Leicester LE2 7PG, UK – 0116 364 9996

Great local branch a little small but compensated by the fact that the staff are very helpful and friendly. It does get busy during lunch times, best times are school times or book an appointment. Only problem is parking.

HSBC

2-6 Gallowtree Gate, Leicester LE1 1DA, UK – 0345 740 4404

HSBC played me around today which I was not happy about at all. I was given wrong information twice by different staff. Been back and forth from home to branch 4 times in one day, not very pleasing. However, The Branch Manager (unfortunately forgotten his name) was extremely helpful and although my issue wasn't fully resolved his attitude and CS skills were excellent and kept me calm. It was explained to me about the wrong info given to me and was given many apologies and unexpectedly recieved some money as a compensation. Again, although my issue was not resolved, it was explained to me what actions to take next but because of the help I received from the Branch Manager and another Staff Member, I thought it was worth leaving a review. P.S - Thank you very much Branch Manager :)

quick service, staff very helpful

Carisbrooke Dental Practice

238 London Rd, Leicester LE2 1RL, UK – 0116 270 7030

In my opinion this is the best private dental practice in the UK and they have been my dentist all my life. A centre of excellence where people are referred to for their expertise also from Europe etc. Also excellent for normal routine dental work. Everyone is very friendly and nervous people put at ease. Recently they helped Taylor a friend of mine and i would like to thank everyone at the practice for all their help and in particular Drs Havinder, Jeremy, Mike, Neil Francis and Brenda, the practice manager . Julie and all the reception staff, , Many Thanks and Best regards Shelley

I am extremely pleased and satisfied with the dental treatment I received from Dr Fiona Phillips. I was explained my treatment plan clearly and felt at ease with her. I highly recommend her for the expertise and professionalism, without a doubt this is the best dental practice I have visited.

Gipsy Lane Dental Practice

47 Gipsy Ln, Leicester LE4 6RJ, UK – 0116 268 1444

Have been going for many years - first class service from front desk to treatment.

2 Westcotes Dr, Leicester LE3 0QR, UK – 0116 254 7887

Such a brilliant service. Called yesterday morning for advice from my GP, was booked a telephone appointment and he called me back within the hour. He sent my prescription straight to the pharmacy for me to collect that evening. Such a brilliant way of working, particularly for people like me that work all day. Definitely the way forward!

Leicester Royal Infirmary

Infirmary Square, Leicester LE1 5WW, UK – 0300 303 1573

Just one adding point why don't you run a ultrasound on people complaining of heart pains before all tests Map the area Check the rate Go to blood Done Blessed experience great doctors Not to be rude but if you have not got a map of the area you plan to treat. How can one be oin good standing to when it comes to the final decision. I'm more than happy with my diagnosis but, it is my opinion that without an ultrasound scan some doubt still remains. Meaning the patient may feel insecure and or feel they have been denied proper treatment.

I don’t care what bad reviews people leave but our NHS care really is second to none. A&E staff and Majors staff were amazing and friendly and very reassuring. Can’t thank them and praise them enough. The East Midlands Ambulance crew were amazing too. Thank you all for your help and support. They are all doing a wonderful job under a strain and are under-paid for the work they do and the abuse they get. Work with them and not against them, you won’t get the same treatment and benefits anywhere else in the world.

St Mary De Castro Church

15 Castle View, Leicester LE1 5WN, UK – 01572 820181

The most beautiful church in Leicester City!

Despite the loss of it's beautiful spire, this is still a magnificent church. Rich in architectural detail both inside and out. Though dominated by the huge old chestnut the churchyard is worth a visit too. The boundary wall reveals damage caused due the Seige of Leicester during the English Civil War. This is 'must see' on any visitors list and a perfect foil to all the modern architecture of the DMU Campus

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Leicester

Santhi Restaurant

124 Granby St, Leicester LE1 1DL, UK – 0116 255 5511

Found this restaurant on google very close to the hotel. It had good reviews and we were able to book a table online. It was a Sunday night so not sure it would have been a problem to just walk in. You could easily walk past this as the frontage is not huge and you access the restaurant down some steep stairs so hold on. Pleasantly greeted as we walked through the door, the restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. The food was nice and cooked very timely. The menu was south Indian which meant some of the popular sides weren't on the menu but I enjoyed the meal nevertheless.

Delicious lunch time food. Small menu but all choices delicious. Naan bread more like English bread than typical Indian. Service excellent.

Bill's

10 Shires Lane, Leicester LE1 4AN, UK – 0116 251 1258

If I'm going out for breakfast/brunch the only place I will go is Bills. Never ever been disappointed. Nice and chilled atmosphere with very polite and happy staff. A wide variety of meals to accommodate everyone's taste and cooked on point. Good price and quick service. Visited today with my daughter who loves it too. Thanks to Ryan today for making us feel very welcome as usual and accommodating. Always service with a smile which is a rarity nowadays. Thumbs up to him!

Great food and presentation. It's been a while since I've been to a restaurant that balances traditional food against a modern twist, and does so in a healthy and affordable way. Good decor that matches its overall theme, and great service throughout the meal. Wait times ended up being fairly long, though this is to be expected midday Saturday

Chettinad Restaurant

146C London Rd, Leicester LE2 1ED, UK – 0116 319 2112

Nice South Indian food. Not greasy, good value and good flavours. Try the Lunch special ..its worth the money.

The food was totally amazing! The staff were friendly and kind. Will definitely visit again when I pass down the M1. The perfect dosa! Thanks!!

Bush Babies - Leicester City

146 Upper New Walk, Leicester LE1 7QA, UK – 0116 233 0423

Location, experience, Cleanliness and safety all in this nursery.

My little girl started in August and is very happy there. I have found all the staff to be very professional. The children do a range of activities with every day being different, and the facilities and equipment are good. The food is excellent and everywhere is very clean. I have been impressed by how well they recognise the differences between the children, their approach to managing behaviour and the amount of time spent outside. Excellent location.

Nursery Rhymes - Leicester

13 Knighton Grange Rd, Leicester LE2 2LF, UK – 0116 270 2533

I cannot recommend Nursery Rhymes enough. We knew this was the nursery for us the minute we stepped through the door and we weren’t disappointed upon our daughter starting. In fact, we have been blown away by the care and support given to her. The staff in the baby room are fantastic and take excellent care of our daughter. She settled in super quick, with little fuss which is a testament to the staff in the baby room. The staff are extremely helpful and will always try to allay any concerns we might have. We also love love love the online parent portal which keeps up updated throughout the day. Thank you for taking such good care of our precious little person.

When I first visited Nursery Rhymes, I knew straight away this was the nursery for my daughter. I had visited a couple of other nurseries beforehand but didn’t get the warm and caring vibe as I did at Rhymes. The staff have been there since the nursery opened which I feel is a true testament in the caring and nurturing environment it is. My daughter started Jan 2016 in the baby room. The staff helped her settle in really well and aided with her child development, such as taking her on bus journeys to the park and developing her creative skills. She is currently in the toddler room where she gets to socialise and play with some great adults and kids. Great place to start your child’s education, highly recommend it.

Abbey Primary Community School

109 Ross Walk, Leicester LE4 5HH, UK – 0116 266 1809

I would like to give rating 3 to this school because staff Is not smily and friendly especially gujrati teachers with the parents. Most importantly, I always notice when I drop and pick my child from school ....teacher never ever make sure if child has entered the class or teacher has handover the child to the parents at pick up time. Make a rule for parents to stand in queue then everyone will follow. Secondly, they open the gate at pick up time at exact 330 pm which should open before 10 min, that can help parent to see what activity is going on in the class. Third point , school timing is really very very long. We most parent want it must to be 850-3:00pm or 830am to 230. And on every Friday which seems a cool and relax day , must got off at 1 pm ( 850am -1 pm). So after getting a break of getting fresh at home , children can participate in activities in the school which play after school. Especially FSY -1/2 ( reception class) to year 3 timings must be less. Thanks

Good I love the shcool the teachers are very freindy
