Mercure Swansea Hotel has announced the refurbishment of 64 of its 120 bedrooms. The extensive renovation includes the redesign of 64 classic bedrooms, bathrooms and bedroom corridors, as well as the rollout of new beds in all 120 bedrooms in the hotel. Work on the renovation is well underway and is set to be complete by May.
The hotel’s bedroom renovation will cater well for the demand from the local corporate and consumer markets. The hotel’s classic bedrooms will include flat screen TV, complimentary high-speed WiFi, new beds with a Kayfoam King Koil mattress, and en-suite bathrooms with complimentary toiletries. In addition, there are also three Privilege Bedrooms, which feature everything guests could wish for to relax and unwind in style including complimentary unlimited movies, a Nespresso coffee machine, newspaper, robe and slippers.
Interior designer, Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who has previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on renovation projects across the UK, comments on the project: “The design of the new bedrooms delivers a better hotel experience for guests. We have taken much of our design inspiration from the local area, adding some local and historical touches such as the printed headboard, which is an engraved illustration depicting Swansea’s thriving factories and ports from the 1800s.
“The colour scheme is a mixture of soft greys and neutrals, giving a fresh and contemporary feel. The bedrooms each have a traditional Italian designer desk in American oak and acrylic, complimented by modern touches such as a full-length mirror with storage box and concealed hanging rail to give a spacious and clever design.”
Ian Harding-Jones the hotel’s general manager comments: “We are delighted with the recent refurbishment and are very proud of the hotel’s location and history. It is great to be able to celebrate Swansea’s rich heritage throughout our new design, whilst bringing a contemporary fresh look to the hotel. With over 50% of our rooms being completely refurbished and every room getting a new top of the range bed, we are very excited for guests to see the new look. Over the past few years we have already increased our occupancy by over 15% and we know there is a great deal of potential to extend this further.”
