Ramada Leicester Stage offers 79 standard and executive rooms, five meeting rooms, indoor pool, sauna and fitness centre as well as food and beverage outlets including the Lesters Bar and Restaurant.

We are delighted to extend our association with Wyndham Hotel Group and become a preferred management partner and have already developed an excellent working relationship with their UK team, said Simon Lester, chief executive officer and chairman, Lester Hotels Management Services Limited. The diversity and appeal of the Ramada brand in the UK perfectly complements both our own portfolio and a number of current opportunities and we look forward to opening more Wyndham Hotel Group branded properties in the UK over the next few years.
