Located close to St Martins House Conference Centre in the historic quarter where Richard III’s remains were found, St Martins Lodge is an elegant £1.8m development which has been completed opposite Leicester Cathedral. It is a unique addition to the variety of places to stay in the heart of Leicester, providing luxury accommodation for the tourism and conferencing market within the city in the picturesque setting of Cathedral Gardens. The attractive Georgian building, formerly used as offices, now offers premium overnight accommodation with 28 luxurious appointed bedrooms including a top floor suite, two wheelchair accessible rooms, car parking and breakfast provision overlooking Cathedral Gardens. The Lodge is the latest development in the area which has already seen the creation of the peaceful Cathedral Gardens as a public space for city residents and visitors to enjoy. This part of Leicester is also currently being boosted by City Council investment to develop the surrounding streets and buildings, enhancing the local heritage. St Martins Lodge blends seamlessly with its surrounding in the historic quarter of the city. Its proximity to the Cathedral, the Guildhall and to St Martins House Conference Centre also means that it is ideal for people wishing to stay in accommodation close to their meeting, event or wedding venue, as well as anyone visiting other parts of the city.
St Martins House is a successful conference and events centre run by the Church of England Diocese of Leicester and its staff are pleased at the opportunity that the opening of St Martins Lodge presents to extend their business. Nick Quinn, Director of St Martins House and Lodge, is delighted. “St Martins House will now be able to offer a 24-hour conference rate including overnight accommodation with breakfast alongside its existing function room hire and catering facilities. This is frequently requested by conference and wedding hosts so St Martins Lodge will be meeting a known demand and adding to the room capacity of the city available for local and national businesses, and for tourism.” Situated adjacent to the Cathedral and the Guildhall, St Martins House is a high class conferencing and events venue which has the capacity for a wide range of event sizes and styles and its Grand Hall offers the perfect place for a wedding reception.
