WHAT WE LOVE...

A smart, clean and aesthetically pleasing centrally-located room-only lodging with a useful car park, making it ideal to explore the city by foot. A stone's throw away is the pretty cathedral, museum and Victorian art gallery, Leicester market which has 700 years' history and counting, cafés, bars, international restaurants and more. Alternatively, drive to see the wonders of Leicestershire, from famed pork pies in the rural capital of food Melton Mowbray to authentic Indian cuisine closer to home on the Golden Mile. There is a member of staff available around the clock should you have any questions and you can even make your stay more special by pre-booking a box of chocolates and bottle of bubbly - the ideal romantic break away.

Style & Character

Ideal for a couple who want to walk to a romantic restaurant in the city and return to their boutique, beautifully designed nest for a cosy night in. We loved the hallway featuring a collection of hand-drawn pictures depicting the city throughout the years.

The free parking next to the Lodge was very useful and much appreciated.

Food & Drink
