No Ordinary Hospitality Management to manage St Mary's Guildhall.

We are thrilled to announce that we will be managing St Mary’s Guildhall when it opens in early 2022 after £5.6 million of investment and redevelopment.

Our experienced team who are behind the award-winning Coombe Abbey Hotel in Warwickshire will be working hard to increase the profile of St Mary’s Guildhall within the city, the region and across the country.

We will be responsible for developing an exciting heritage programme, visitor experience and developing the marketing to attract more visitors – as well as developing it as a leading venue for weddings, events and conferences.

St Mary’s Guildhall sits next to Coventry’s Cathedral and dates back to 1352 and the redevelopment programme is underway with the aim of ensuring that the Guildhall takes its place in the city’s visitor offer for residents and tourists, and grows its reputation and customer base.

The Guildhall is home of the significant “Coventry Tapestry”, Mary Queen of Scots was held there in 1569, and the building miraculously survived the blitz of 1940 which devastated much of the city centre.
