    The Mercure Inverness Hotel, set on the banks of the River Ness in the heart of the city, has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment to transform its biggest event room, providing the ideal location to cater for all occasions.The hotel’s recent renovation also includes the creation of twelve brand new Privilege Bedrooms, which feature everything guests could wish for to relax and unwind in style from plush dressing gowns to Nespresso coffee machines.

    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 in the new bedrooms is fresh and modern. We used bold splashes of colour against an elegant and stylish grey palate. In each room, there is a highland influenced painting positioned on the ceiling over the bed, to add a locally inspired touch to the design. Each room has a bespoke wardrobe and the bathrooms include large walk-in showers. The Inverness Suite has a unique Scottish thistle carpet design, with contemporary tartan wallpaper and deep purples and greys, to give a perfect setting for a wedding.”

    The Inverness Suite caters for those looking for an ideal wedding or event venue. The suite accommodates up to 180 guests and with its own private bar, also provides the perfect space for Christmas parties. This year the festive theme is Mistletoe Masquerade, where guests will experience a night of mystery, charm and intrigue. For those looking for a venue to host an intimate sit down meal for the family, there are also additional rooms to accommodate for a smaller function.

    Commenting on the refurbishment, hotel General Manager Fraser Peterkin said: “We are delighted with the transformation of the Inverness Suite, which has been completed in perfect time for those looking for a venue for their Christmas party. Our hotel is situated in an ideal central location, with fantastic transport links all within walking distance.”

    Located with the dramatic Highland backdrop, the hotel also creates the perfect romantic setting for a wedding. From an intimate gathering to an extraordinary affair, the hotel has experts on hand to create bespoke packages to suit every guest. Plus, there is an array of colour schemes to choose from and tailored menu choices.

    Shane Harris, CEO Jupiter Hotels, added: “The investment demonstrates our continued commitment to the growth and transformation of our portfolio in the UK. It’s an exciting time for the midscale hotel market and with the right investment, hotels like the Mercure Inverness Hotel can be given a new lease of life.”

    The Inverness Suite can also host up to 200 conference delegates and offers complimentary high speed WiFi.

    Local attractions include Loch Ness, the Eden Court theatre, plus a selection of Championship Golf courses. The airport is approximately 20 minutes away.
