    The grand, eighteenth century Mercure Burton Upon Trent, Newton Park Hotel has undergone an extensive refurbishment transforming the 4* hotel. The Italianate-style country manor retreat will unveil its redesign in November, with a special event to launch the new look Mercure Burton Upon Trent, Newton Park Hotel. The renovation includes the transformation of the historic hotel’s public spaces as well as the redesign of the William Morris Suite, which caters specifically 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 across the UK, comments on the project: “The public areas have been refreshed to reflect the feeling of grandeur you would expect from a Grade 2 listed building of this kind. There was an exquisite listed wallpaper prevalent throughout the public area, which we enhanced by using fresh, warm paints to bring this to life and keep at the heart of the design. To add a contemporary feel to the hotel, we added a unique picture frame wallpaper in the Oak Room and large floral print curtains in the lounge.”

    The William Morris Suite accommodates up to 160 wedding guests and overlooks eight acres of landscaped gardens, providing the perfect backdrop for a grand wedding or event. The Suite, which retains its original features of oak panelling, is dressed with palates of soft lilacs and gold. There are grand chandeliers, which enhance the historical details of the hotel, plus the original conservatory has also been refurbished and is now licensed to hold civil ceremonies.

    The Mercure Burton Upon Trent, Newton Park Hotel is located three miles from Burton-Upon-Trent and a short drive from the National Forest, it’s the perfect location for those looking for a weekend away or a business retreat.
