About Mercure Leicester The Grand Hotel

Granby Street, Leicester
Leicestershire, LE1 6ES

Mercure Leicester The Grand Hotel is considered to be one of the most impressive wedding venues in Leicestershire and, with its magnificent frontage and grand interior, it’s easy to see why. With the scale and grandeur of a country manor, but with the convenience and glamour of a city centre location, this historic venue is something truly special.

Following a ground floor refurbishment, we have retained the traditional features of the original architecture while modernising the facilities and our approach to unique and individual wedding days, to ensure we can cater for all.

Whether you are thinking of an intimate gathering for up to 30 guests or a dazzling reception for 300 you will find the hotel has something for everyone and we will look after you every step of the way, ensuring that your day is unique and tailor-made for you.

We offer a selection of three beautiful rooms in which to say your vows. The Queen’s Hall, with its large windows and light and airy feel, can hold up to 200 guests and has its own private entrance and reception area. The Cromwell and Empress rooms are as traditional as they come, beautifully light and bright with stunning Victorian carved fireplaces.

Our upper lounge is a perfect setting for treating your friends and family to a glass of Pimms or Prosecco for their reception drinks before moving onto the sumptuous wedding breakfast.

The wedding breakfast is an important part of your day and we offer a range of enticing menus to delight your guests. Our talented chefs can create a range of tempting dishes to satisfy every taste. We work with you to design the perfect menu, from a six-course wedding breakfast to an informal buffet.

The splendour of the King’s Hall will leave your guests speechless, from the moment they enter for your wedding reception they will be in awe of the beauty and history within it. The grand fireplaces make the ultimate backdrop for your top table and the cutting of the cake, giving you those picture perfect memories.

By Tendai Mukoko, on 19 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 10 Dec 2016

We were given a very nice and warm welcome followed by an immaculate wedding service. Tia organised our wedding perfectly and we would not ask for more.the accomodation rooms were a good size and very clean, so in other words our needs were tailor made and greatly achieved. I would like to thank the manager and staff who were helping out with the food, our expectations were exceeded. I would definately recommend someone because we enjoyed every bit.Thank you once more

Fairytale wedding
Venue Service

By Laura and Sam Brookes, on 11 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016

Had our wedding reception here on August 6th 2016. It was absolutely fabulous and we couldn't have asked for it to be any better. Tia our wedding coordinator was incredible helping us with all our plans along the way, and Julian was our main man on the day making sure the day went smoothly! Great food aswell! Thank you to all the staff involved! The executive room was lush, nice and big with a great bathroom! Worth the extra money if staying! We saw the standard rooms which were small but nice and not as bad as reviews say. Thank you again

First class for big weddings!

The venue is stunning, we cannot fault a thing! My friend had her wedding in the Kings Hall & Queens Hall both very different rooms but worked perfectly together on the day.

Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Kerry and Drew, on 19 Sep 2015

We could not recommend the venue enough. Paul and Austin were amazing, making the planning and the day go perfectly. The whole staff at the hotel very accommodating and friendly nothing was too much trouble. We had lots of great comments from our guest on the venue, staff and food. If you are looking for a warm, friendly beautiful venue then please choose the Mercure, they will give you the perfect day.

The very Grand Mecure Hotel
Venue Service

By Mrs Anne & Julia Harlan, on 02 Aug 2015

We got married on 25th July 2015. Our ceremony was in the beautiful Queens Hall and our evening reception was in the very Grand Kings Hall. From start to finish we were made to feel like princesses. The venue is a wonderful place to get married. The food was 1st class and all the staff were welcoming, professional, lovely and accommodating. Tia was our wedding coordinator who helped create our special day, she was so professional and helpful nothing was too much, she was always on hand to answer all our questions. Julian was there on our day who kept us calm and ensured that everything was perfect and ran smoothly. We would highly recommend to anyone looking to get married to seriously consider the Mecure Hotel as their choice of venue. It is a beautiful building with exceptional staff, thank you to the Mecure team for giving us our most magical and memorable day.

Wonderful in every way!
Venue Service

By Maria & Sam, on 20 Nov 2014

From beginning to end, everything was handled brilliantly! Our wedding coordinator was extremely professional and did an absolutely excellent job. We chose the hotel because of its beautiful Victorian ballroom, the King's Hall, but the amazing service from the staff is what truly made it a day to remember. Highly recommended!

made our day absolutely perfect!
Venue Service

By Claire & Dan Sept 2013, on 18 Feb 2014

We just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us to plan our wedding, and for making everything seem like no trouble at all. We bombarded you with e-mails and changed our minds constantly, but you accommodated us with everything and helped us along the way, which in the end made our day absolutely perfect! Please pass our thanks on to the team who made everything run so smoothly!

Venue Service

By Katie, on 21 Apr 2008

The Kings Hall is such a beautiful room to hold a wedding reception in and the staff were so attentive - I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful day.

grand and spacious, divine food
Venue Service

By mrs preston, on 08 Mar 2005

made my wedding day, the service of the coordinator was excellent, went out of way to help, being able to sample menu choice was good fun and helped with build up, great value for money, and the catering for children was great, only one downside that was the disco, wouldnt recommend the inhouse entertainment, that was called cream disco, guests said it was the poshest reception they had ever been too, even though no grounds, photos on the stairs with the chandeliers behind are fantastic, breakfast is good and you are made to feel special throughoutyour stay, but one of the best things is that you get to stay their again for your 1st anniversary for free.. just wish i could have the day again !!!!
