VisitEngland Accessibility Guide
As part of VisitEngland's Quality Assessment Scheme, we have an accessibility guide to demonstrate our facilities and services to disabled people and other customers who want specific accessibility information. This allows you to make informed decisions when staying at our hotel, knowing that we can accommodate your individual requirements.Explore the guide
We deliver great experiences to all our guests and are proud to be one of only 9 hotels in the UK to have the Mobility 3 accreditation, making us one of the most accessible hotel venues in the country.
Being a member of the National Accessible Scheme means we have been independently evaluated by trained assessors against demanding criteria, so you can be confident that your needs are covered.
Accessibility is about more than just the physical facility, it's our culture and attitude that sets us apart. We'll make you feel comfortable and be on hand should you need us.
We've made every effort to provide you with a detailed and accurate access statement but if there's anything we haven't covered, or you have a particular enquiry, please let us know.

A few days before going to Loughborough, I hurt my back. After driving for a couple of hours I was really stiff and walked into reception as though I had been horse riding for about a month non-stop!! Mike, the duty Manager, was there and offered me some water. As I was checking in, he very kindly took my bags to the room. Brilliant pro-active customer service and, whenever I go back to Loughborough, guess where I will stay!
