The four star Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel and Spa has undergone an extensive refurbishment, transforming its bedrooms and public spaces.
A significant investment has been in the property in a bid to firmly secure the hotel’s position as a UK leader for conferences and events.
Marisa Morteo, General Manager of The Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa Cardiff said: “I am confident that the refurbishment will place us in a stronger positon to compete on a U.K wide scale, the objective will be to showcase the capital of Wales and attract international business as well as leisure clients by highlighting the attractions our vibrant city has to offer. While on a local level the stunning new space will allow us to retain lucrative event contracts as well as attracting those who’re looking to enjoy leisure facilities that offer unbeatable style and comfort.”
Mercure, a “locally inspired” brand, has drawn influence for the hotel’s new interior design from Cardiff itself. Inspired by Cardiff’s Millennium Centre, Bay and Castle, the interior design is permeated with Welsh copper and slate incorporating copper pendant lighting, slate feature walls and Welsh woolen upholstery throughout. The refurbishment has completely transformed the public spaces of one of Cardiff’s most well-known property’s, helping to firmly position the hotel back on the map as a luxury hospitality leader in the city.
Jonathan Sheard, Senior Vice President, of Operations Luxury, Upscale & Midscale Hotels, Accor UK & Ireland said: “The refurbishment of the Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel & Spa will suit every traveller, whether for business, leisure or both. The hotel’s new look reflects the exciting and cosmopolitan feel of Cardiff and mirrors the brand’s commitment to strong local connections.”
Previously office space, the high rise city centre property was converted into a hotel in 2004 and was taken over by Accor to be run under the Mercure brand in 2007.
