    The new Mercure Milton Keynes Abbey Hill – previously Abbey Hill Hotel – has announced its launch following a £1.5 million transformation, and rebranding as a Mercure property. With its new state-of-the-art facilities, stunning décor and fresh concept, the property is set to become one of Milton’s Keynes’ premier destinations for business, leisure and weddings.Located close to the city centre adjacent to Abbey Hill Golf Course, the hotel features a nature- inspired colour palette and artwork throughout its newly designed and furnished public spaces. The design theme continues through its 60-seater restaurant, spacious 50-person capacity bar and lobby area, and throughout its 88 stunningly refurbished bedrooms. Other facilities include five state-of-the-art meeting rooms ideal for conferences, private events and weddings, and a newly-built outdoor decking area with contemporary furniture.

    The hotel’s new restaurant, Moltens, will this February launch interactive dining enabling guests to cook their preferred meats or fish on lava rock – a rare concept that uses volcanic slates heated to 440oC. Moltens restaurant, whose menu will also cater to vegetarians, plans to introduce exotic specialty meats such as venison, ostrich and crocodile by this summer.

    The hotel conducted research into the changing needs of today’s business traveller to determine practical features for the design of its 76 standard rooms and 12 Privilege rooms. These include luxuriously-high 74cm king size beds, demisting bathroom mirrors, under-floor tile heating in the bathrooms, flat screen Freeview TV, a laptop safe, and comfortable light settings including reading lights.

    With tranquil views over the golf course, the hotel’s 28 square metre Privilege rooms are considerably larger and offer additional features such as super-king size beds, a complimentary mini-bar, Nespresso coffee maker, bathrobe and slippers, additional toiletries, a Jacuzzi bathtub and a sofa seating area.

    Mercure Milton Keynes Abbey Hill, the 75th UK property for Mercure, is located just off the A5 and is five minutes’ drive from Milton Keynes train station and the centre of Milton Keynes.
