New Look for Mercure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel
The splendid Georgian Manor house Mercure Newbury, Elcot Park Hotel is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment which will transform the 4* hotel.
The hotel will unveil the first stage of the refurbishment on 6th June with a special event to launch the new look Mercure Newbury, Elcot Park Hotel. The first phase of the renovation will focus on transforming the historic hotel’s public spaces and restaurant including the creation of The Percy Shelley Suite, designed specifically to cater for people looking for a unique wedding or event venue.
Interior designer Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who has previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on renovation projects, takes the lead. Helen explained, “Throughout public areas, the interior fuses contemporary fabrics and colours with traditional period features and detail. The fabrics are luxurious, textural and sumptuous in strong but elegant colours and the lighting is contemporary and glamorous. The lounge and bar areas are filtrated with deep navy blue furniture and striking ombre wallpaper. The hotel’s new look epitomises nostalgic elegance with a modern day style.”
The elegantly‐styled Orangery Restaurant with its stunning views offers a diverse range of dishes, some of which include ingredients grown on the property’s grounds, will welcome a more rustic relaxed feel to reflect the setting of the hotel.
The Percy Shelley Suite decorated in soft shades of contemporary greys, warm and soft in colour, allows the natural beauty outside to reflect inside and is the perfect back drop to complement any bride’s choice of wedding colour.
The romantic tented ceiling, soft elegant lighting and luxurious cream satin curtains make this stunning new suite the perfect space for dreamy weddings or extra special events accommodating up to 120 guests. Newlyweds can delight in the wonderful country views and twinkling chandeliers, as the hotel provides an idyllic romantic setting for their special day.
Commenting on the refurbishment, hotel General Manager Mehmet Kandemir said: “We are delighted with this investment and are very excited for the first phase launch in June. We are very proud of the hotel’s heritage and the new design concept attributes to this, combining tradition with a contemporary edge.”
The Mercure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel, former family home of Percy Shelley the great poet, is surrounded by sixteen acres of luxurious landscaped gardens. Set within a parkland estate of outstanding natural beauty and only ten miles from the real “Downton Abbey”, Highclere Castle.
