An historic hotel in Ashby that became a popular wedding venue. The hotel closed in 2018.
Built in 1826, the historic Royal Hotel in Ashby-de-la-Zouch is an important part of the town’s heritage. The hotel was built next door to Ivanhoe Baths, a popular spa that had opened four years earlier, in order to accommodate it’s visitors. By 1884 the baths had closed and stood derelict for many years, and were finally demolished in 1962. The Royal Hotel reinvented itself and became a popular venue for weddings and functions.
By 2015 the hotel was operating at a loss, and was sustained by the owners until its closure in March 2018.
