The Belmont Hotel celebrates Leicester connections with launch of two new themes family rooms
New bedrooms celebrate Leicester's famous connections to space and discovery of King Richard III
The Belmont Hotel, the 80 year-old, family-owned independent hotel in Leicester, is celebrating two of Leicester's highest profile connections with the launch of two new family bedrooms.
The rooms are themed around space and King Richard III. The Space room commemorates Leicester's location as home to the National Space Centre and the University of Leicester's successful developments in space research since the late 1960s. The King Richard III room is themed around the discovery of the remains of the last Plantagenet king of England in the city in 2012 and subsequent reinterment in Leicester Cathedral in 2015.
A room dedicated to the historic Premier League victory by Leicester City Football Club in 2016 is planned for later this year.
Eloic Montagnier, General Manager at The Belmont Hotel said: "The Belmont Hotel has been at the heart of Leicester for over 80 years now and these two themed bedrooms pay homage to two of the city's most famous connections.
"The Space room is ideal for families whose children aspire to be astronauts and will provide an out of this world experience. The King Richard III room will take guests back to the days of the Battle of Bosworth when the Richard III became the last English King to be killed in battle."
