Mercure Milton Keynes Abbey Hill Hotel announces launch

The new Mercure Milton Keynes Abbey Hill Hotel, formerly the Abbey Hill Hotel, is being launched following a refurbishment that has cost £1.5m.

The Mercure brand has announced that its latest property, in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, UK, features a decorative theme throughout its public spaces that is inspired by nature. This includes the hotel’s 60-seat restaurant, 50-person capacity bar and lobby area, and its 88 bedrooms. For business guests and private functions, the hotel can also provide five state-of-the-art meeting rooms.

The hotel is located conveniently close to Milton Keynes town centre, five minutes’ drive from the town’s railway station, and adjacent to the Abbey Hill Golf Course.

Guests have the option of booking one of the hotel’s 12 Privilege rooms, which offer 28 square metres of accommodation with views across the golf course, super-king size beds, a complimentary mini-bar, Nespresso coffee maker, bathrobe and slippers, additional toiletries, a Jacuzzi bathtub and a sofa seating area.

Meanwhile, the hotel’s new restaurant, Moltens, will introduce an interactive dining experience this February, with diners able to cook their own choice of meat or fish on volcanic slates that are heated to 440 degrees C. The restaurant intends to cater for the more adventurous meat eater by this summer with the introduction of venison, ostrich and crocodile to the menu, but will also offer a full range of vegetarian options.

Nazim Manji, chairman and CEO of Clubhouse Group, owner and operator of the new Mercure property says, ‘After months of hard work we are thrilled to be unveiling the newest hotel in the thriving business hub of Milton Keynes, which is said to become one of England’s largest cities by 2031. The hotel was one of the first purpose built business hotels in Milton Keynes around 1987, so we are pleased to be carrying on the legacy. The new facilities will better serve our business market whilst also appealing to those that visit the region’s many attractions at weekends.’

Jonathan Sheard, managing director of operations for MGallery and Mercure Hotels, Northern Europe, commented, ‘The Mercure Milton Keynes Abbey Hill Hotel is a fantastic addition to the growing Mercure network in the UK. Each Mercure hotel has its own unique story and this hotel is no different. We are very pleased to welcome it on board.’
