This week it was announced by Hull based serviced accommodation specialists Hull Serviced
Apartments (HSA), that work on their latest project, Endsleigh Park, is nearing conclusion of its
first phase and is being readied for launch in June 2019.
As with all previous HSA development projects, Endsleigh Park is another property and location
with a fascinating history, interwoven with that of the city of Hull itself. Originally known as the
Institute of our Lady of Mercy, it was founded by Catherine Macauly as the Hull home of the
Sisters of Mercy. The building has been through several incarnations during its lifetime to date,
including that of a convent, chapel, educational college, and most recently a pastoral, retreat
and conference centre.
Set in extensive, attractive grounds, the building is an architectural treasure trove, and as has
become HSA’s hallmark, they have again sought to preserve and enhance all of its most unique
period features, both internally and externally. Phase one of the release will see forty serviced,
en-suite rooms be made available to visitors to the city, which will benefit from communal
lounges, kitchens, gym, cinema room, private secure parking, and of course access to the
beautiful and peaceful grounds surrounding the property.
Endsleigh Park is located on Beverley High Road, close to both the University, and the city centre,
and as well as its secure, free parking is also well served by public transport, with bus stops
immediately outside the entrance on both sides of the road, heading either in the direction of
Hull city centre or Beverley.
HSA has been quite prolific in recent times and was in the news earlier in the year for their
acquisition and future plans for the former East Hull swimming baths, and even more recently
just this month, for their restoration and relaunch of the historic Winding House on Victoria
Dock. However, Endsleigh Park is their most ambitious project to date, being the largest
residential development to be completed in Hull this year, and representing a multi-million
pound investment on their part.
HSA Managing Director James Ledger said that he was very excited to be able to finally share the
results of their work during the phased release of the reborn Endsleigh Park: “I was delighted
when we became the new owners of this prestigious property, steeped in so much history. Aside
from the breathtaking convent and chapel, whose features we have preserved right down to the
stunning stained glass windows, a further walk around the grounds reveals so many more
hidden gems and secluded spots, originally designed for contemplation, reflection and
The first guests will be welcomed to Endsleigh Park in June, with a second phase to be
announced later in the year.
