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

TSB Bank

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.

Dentists

44 Dental Care

44 Fosse Rd N, Leicester LE3 5EQ, UK – 0116 251 9647

Front tooth crown replacement I have recently had a front crown replaced by Dr Hathiari at 44 Dental Care. The crown was originally fitted 36 years ago, by a previous dental practice, when I broke a front tooth in an accident. I had the crown replaced about 15 years ago, to try and get a better cosmetic appearance, but I have never been 100% happy with the crown. The shape or colour, was never quite right. The crown finally broke and Dr Hathiari advised a new crown replacement. The crown now is as close to perfect as I think I could get. Size, shape and colour are as close to my original teeth as I think possible. Dr Hathiari is extremely professional yet very caring and gentle in his procedure. I was kept informed and advised of all aspects of my treatment required to get the crown colour and fitment as perfect as possible. I am very pleased with my new crown and am happy to recommend Dr Hathiari and 44 Dental Care to others.

Excellent service very professional and extremely approachable and helpful staff. A genuine and caring group of lovely professionals thank you so much for everything

The Smile and Implant Centre

28 Narborough Rd, Leicester LE3 0BQ, UK – 0116 254 1298

A warm and friendly environment. Every step was clearly explained with an easy going, no pressure manner. All choices were 100% my own. A really positive experience. Thank you.

If your looking for a good honest dental practice then look no further, Daniel is a lovely man, polite, reassuring and has a great honest opinion on your dental health. I look forward to our chats so much so that the exam etc is incidental to my appointment. The reception staff are great and the practice is spotless. Daniel even shows you the instruments he uses and what they do. He takes pride in what he does. Nervous? Don't worry, after your first visit you wont have a problem going back again. My whole family go, and they all enjoy the experience. If you need a dentist, give him a call, you wont be disappointed in the Smile Centre, .....

Aesthetic Smiles

155 Fosse Rd N, Leicester LE3 5EZ, UK – 0116 251 0828

I was at Aesthetic Smiles a couple of days ago for the first time and I was very impressed with their services. From reception to the dentist's/treatment room the staff were very polite, welcoming, reassuring and knowledgeable. The filling and cleaning of my teeth was painless contrary to what I imagined. The cleaning of my teeth was excellent and I can't stop looking at the mirror even two days later to be sure that the work done is permanent. Thank you Aesthetic Smiles for the experience and work done on my teeth. You are really appreciated. REPLY 

My first experience at a dentist in my life was a very pleasant one indeed. From the moment I walked through the front door, I was welcomed into a professional and friendly environment, by a wonderful front desk. Everything was made simple and clear for me. The Dentist and the Nurse were both wonderful, and made sure I was comfortable and at ease throughout the procedure. I have already the dentist to one of my friends, and will certainly continue to recommend it to anyone looking for a dentist in the future. Keep up the great work!

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.

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

Santhi Restaurant (Leicester Indian 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.

Zizzi Leicester Belvoir Street

26 Belvoir St, Leicester LE1 6QH, UK – 0116 255 8547

Quality food both on and off the set menus. Open-design inside with a good decor. Diligent team and fair pricing throughout. Slightly let down by the quality of our starter but the main/dessert more than made up for it. All in all a great experience, look forward to trying the Zizzi experience in other branches.

Great food and attentive staff! Had a great meal and the restaurant wasn’t busy so I think this helped the service. Although it wasn’t the cheapest of meals (mainly due to expensive drinks!) all the food was to a high quality and tasted great. I had a lamb shoulder which was incredibly tender and the potatoes were very tasty. I think I’ll be visiting another zizzis again!

Taylor Road Primary School

53 Taylor Rd, Leicester LE1 2JP, UK – 0116 262 4597

My daughter started at taylor rd primary in foundation(nursery).When we moved to another area she had to leave taylor rd primary due to catchment area policies within LCC. You could tell that she was unhappy with her new school as every morning there was constant moaning,she would hardly talk about her day and almost everyday drag her heals on the walk to school let alone the non existent interaction with teachers at the end of the school day. This as a parent would really hurt dropping your child off knowing full well that she is unhappy.A whole year went by and we put her name down for taylor rd primary fortunately due to expansion a new class in year1 opened and my daughter got her place. The Difference in her is unbelievable she skips into school,looking forward to breakfast club bright and bubbly as a child should be. All in all this is an outstanding school with outstanding staff ,from management ,teachers and support staff which i find are all equally approachable.

Capable and hands on Senior leadership management, excellent, helpful and friendly staff: teachers, academic support staff , office staff and non academic staff all play their part to make the school an excellent and nurturing environment for our children thus the extraordinary performance of the school. I recommend it to everyone but it comes with a Warning attached : if you'll get placement for your child in the first place.
