A first year of success for The Gresham Aparthotel

Since opening, The Gresham Aparthotel has become ‘the place to stay’ when travelling to Leicester. Occupancy is growing and guest reviews are glowing.


“Our guests enjoy being away from home whilst still being able to enjoy home comforts.” Eloic Montagnier, The Gresham General Manager, explains.

“We have become one of the key players in the city. Going from strength to strength; we have just had our strongest months to date occupancy-wise.”

Distinctive from any other hotels, The Gresham Aparthotel includes home from home spaciousness, comforts and amenities; each room has a kitchenette (microwave, hob, fridge, kettle, kitchen utensils and crockery) shower room, sofa and living area and a dining area.

The £17 million, two-year project by developer, Aimrok Holdings, transformed the Grade II-listed Victorian building from a department store (formerly occupied by retailer, Fenwick) into the high-end, 121-room aparthotel.

Eloic, adds: “The unique experience of the aparthotel makes everyone feel at home and relaxed but with the added bonus of a four-star hotel service. You can choose to dine in your own room watching Netflix or visit Black Iron Social on the ground floor to enjoy exquisite drinks and food. Opening the aparthotel was extremely rewarding but now seeing it busy and ‘alive’ is really special.

"Guests from every walk of life stay with us at The Gresham from sporting fans, comedy and theatre goers to business people and beauty contestants.

“We are grateful for the support from everyone who has played a part in the success of our first year, and we look forward to many more anniversaries and milestones."

Centrally located in Leicester as a prime spot for business people, visitors to the city and families to enjoy Leicester. Stepping out of the front doors at The Gresham and on to the pedestrianised streets where restaurants, shops and historic attractions are within minutes as well as the famous sporting venues. The location is unbeatable which coupled to the friendly boutique style of the rooms means it is the perfect place to explore from and rest.

Eloic, concludes: “We want to keep delivering the best service possible and keep The Gresham as a prime venue to stay when visiting Leicester.”

The aparthotel has also been shortlisted for a number of awards including the Place to Stay in the Leicestershire Promotions Tourism and Hospitality Awards and won Best New Business at the Niche Business awards 2022.
