Welcome to Gilburn

We started Gilburn as a Bed and Breakfast back in 2006.  More recently, we noticed a requirement for affordable longer term accommodation which we now offer to people who are working locally or relocating to the area.

We are conveniently located between Junction 23 of the M1 and Junction 13 of the M42, near to the market and University Town of Loughborough. Only 10 minutes cross country from both Donington Race Circuit and East Midlands Airport - this is a fabulous location to beat those queues!

This website offers you information about not only our accomodation, but also the surrounding areas.

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope to see you soon!

High Standard Accommodation

A variety of accommodation is available;

Four Annex rooms which are all en-suite and equipped to a high standard.  These rooms all have kitchen areas with kettles, fridges and microwaves.   They also have individual central heating systems, a sleeping area, sitting area and dining area.  The Annex rooms are single storey so no noise from above or below, they each have separate entrances which lead onto a courtyard which provides good off road parking.

We also have three en-suite rooms available in the Main House which enjoy the use of two living / dining rooms and a fully equipped kitchen (with cooking facilities, a washing machine, fridge and dishwasher).

All rooms are available to individuals from Monday to Friday, with the option to leave personal belongings on a full 7 day basis.  The rooms are serviced (cleaned, new bed linen and towels) once a week on a Friday / Saturday.

We try to give all our guests the comforts of home whilst working away on business.  Guests have the freedom to come and go as they wish.

All rooms have 32” flat screen TVs, radio alarms and free Wifi.  All accommodation is strictly No Smoking.

Please contact us for availability and prices.
