- "Great old building, where I stopped with my wife and daughter for an overnight stay to visit some family members. The staff were a real credit and they helped to make our stay extremely pleasant. It’s right by the town centre which was great and there was a really good market open on the Saturday morning. Breakfast was very pleasant with full English and continental options."
- "If like us your visiting your son/daughter at Loughborough Uni, then you won't go far wrong with a night or 2 at the Caravelli - a restaurant giving B&B's a run for their money. With a good sized room, comfortable bed and a good Italian Restaurant beneath - plenty of good Italian breakfast without a pizza in sight. You don't have to wander far to take them out for a good meal and a glass of wine either the university is only a 5 minute drive up the road. Can recommend the Beaumont room if you get the chance to choose. Have already rebooked for our next visit to re-nourish our son in 5 months time."
- "We stayed here this summer on a pre-UNI trip. It’s only a short walk from the station and we always find Premier Inns such good value with this no exception. Breakfasts are a all you can eat buffet which almost made us immobile from our gluttony! Rooms the usual high standard with a great bed, free wifi and a brilliant shower. Recommend for the value – we paid £54 for 2 with breakfast!"
- "If you are visiting Loughborough then you I recommend you give this place a go. It was fantastic, the hosts, Derek and Les make you feel very welcome and the house is decorated beautifully. The location is perfect for visiting the town centre and there’s an onsite parking. The cooked breakfast served in the morning was yummy."
- "Just what the doctor ordered or more importantly, what the boss wanted. Charnwood Lodge provided me the location and price my boss required and me with the comfort and Service - as it turned out, that I wanted. I had a good comfortable room with a good shower, the internet was a bit weak in the room, but great in the bar, well that's my excuse anyway. There was plenty of parking and although being in a relatively quiet part of Loughborough I was able to get from the M1 in no time at all. Breakfast was superb and the evening meals looked good. Will be trying those on my next visit."
- "Stayed at Links hotel as I had an interview at Loughborough Uni which is nearby. The staff are super friendly and welcoming. My room was excellent, really well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was brilliant too, everything from delicious smoothies to a full English breakfast. I would definitely stay again, really reasonably priced too! 5 stars!"
- "A few minutes drive South of Loughborough and just off the A6 is the Hunting Lodge in Barrow upon Soar. This gave us the ideal base for a trip into Leicester and Melton Mowbray and then able to meet up with friends from Loughborough. They'd heard about the Lodge and wanted to give the meals a try. We had a 4 poster bed with flying canopy and a handy sofa, which is something you don't get everyday. I was a little disappointed that given we had a good evening meal, there was only a continental breakfast on offer. There was a good outdoor area, which would have been lovely, had it not been for the weather, but there was a great fire indoors to make up for it."
Whilst you may not necessarily associate Loughborough with tourism, particularly when compared so some of the more famous UK towns and cities, it was in fact the destination of the first ever package holiday, arranged by Thomas Cook in 1841. Even today, the town continues to offer plenty for its visitors to see and do.
Loughborough has a rich heritage, and is famous for the John Taylor Bellfounders - the largest bellfoundry in the world. Some of the world's most iconic bells were cast here including those at St Paul's Cathedral and York Minster. The museum charts its history from the 14th Century up until the present day. The town is also home to Brush Engineering, who have been making locomotive engines since 1867.
The city is also home to some fascinating examples of Victorian and Art Deco architecture, and merely walking around the town is to immerse oneself in its history. It also boasts the UK's only double track, mainline heritage railway.
Loughborough has a strong sporting bent, and the University is one of the most respected sports-focussed academies in Europe, with more than 250 international athletes studying and training at the centre. For more sedate sports fans, the city has a strong cricketing heritage - who could resist going to watch the wonderfully-named Old Contemptibles hit a few boundaries?
Loughborough is very much a 21st Century town too, and with plenty of shopping, leisure activities and places to eat and drink, there's always something to do. Further afield, the town is also an ideal base from which to explore the rest of what the Leicestershire region has to offer, from the pies of Melton Mowbray to the history of Nottingham.
