Winners of Academic Venue Awards 2017

Wow! What a year we had in 2017.

As the proud winners of the Academic Venue Award 2017, we are excited to share this great achievement and are our recent recognition within the industry of our world-class service and state of the art conference facilities.

Besides winning first prize for our customer service, our team was also proud to receive a number of nominations. We were categorized as finalists for the ‘Best Accommodation,’ ‘Best Conference Venue,’ and ‘Best Residential Venue of the Year’ awards. A special accomplishment and tribute to the standards set at our event venue.


The award is a reflection of the hard work and collective dedication that the team put into providing a professional and proactive service to our clients. We are proud to bring little touches that make a big impact – the new grazing station and fully inclusive approach allow our clients to enjoy the little touches that help to make a more memorable experience.

Our proud Centre Director, Steve Crawford said:

‘Just to have been nominated as finalists in our categories was incredible, but to collect this award on behalf of the whole team was something truly special.
‘I believe this win will strengthen our already outstanding service levels enabling our staff to continue to go above and beyond at every opportunity.’

But fortunately, our recent success and achievements haven’t stopped there. We also came ‘Highly commended’ in the categories of ‘Most Enjoyable Stay’ and ‘Best Website’ in the Leicestershire Promotions Tourism & Hospitality Awards 2017.

77 organisations were shortlisted across 21 categories for the awards which recognise and reward excellence across a range of categories including visitor attractions, events, and restaurants.

With our convenient positioning on the verge of the Leicester City Centre, our Award-winning venue is perfectly located for access to the city and surrounds, making it a textbook setting as an events and academic venue.

We boast sixteen stunning meeting rooms that are able to accommodate hundreds of guests. All of our spacious, stylish rooms are equipped with the latest and greatest in modern technology to bring our service a unique quality. Whether guests visit us for a day conference or a stay at our 123 bedroom hotel, they will be looked after in the College Court way.

The space we offer and the fresh, innovative style of our conference facilities, coupled with our exemplary customer service make us particularly proud of our offerings.

Whilst celebrating our recent success, we are continuing to improve our facilities and ensure we remain as a leading academic venue in the UK. We have big plans for 2018 and we look forward to sharing these with our valuable clients and customers.
