Mercure Bristol Holland House unveils new ‘local’ look


Mercure Bristol Holland House Hotel and Spa has unveiled its new look inspired by local influences, marking the end of the hotel’s extensive refurbishment.

The hotel, part of the Mercure brand, has given its bedrooms and public areas a complete makeover, with a new sleek design that features nods to Bristol’s history and patterns inspired by Clifton Bridge.

The 275 bedrooms have all been refurbished and now offer guests two standard levels to choose from; classic room and privilege rooms.

The new public areas have also been transformed and now consist of bunks, booths and lounge areas, while a new relaxed dining space, Urban Bar and Kitchen has been created.

The new menu at Urban reflects the street food trend and the increasing influence of Asian dining, where guests can choose from a variety of small and big plates inspired by food from around the world.

Guests will also be encouraged to pick from the ‘flavours from the cellar’ wine list, which includes three wines handpicked by the BBC Saturday Kitchen Masters of Wine, Susie Barrie and Peter Richards.

The hotel’s leisure facilities now include a pool, fitness suite and spa plus 14 treatments rooms.

Alan Bickerton, general manager for the Mercure Bristol Holland House said: “We are delighted to welcome guests to this stunningly refurbished hotel, one of the finest in the city. The hotel’s new look captures the essence of Bristol’s heritage and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming guests and locals to experience the hotel’s new look.”
