Locally inspired Mercure boosts presence in Sheffield and takes over historic Kenwood Hall Hotel

Kenwood Hall Hotel
New ‘Privilege’ bedrooms, upgraded in-room experiences and a revamped spa are among some of the improvements planned for Sheffield’s historic Kenwood Hall Hotel when it joins the Mercure portfolio in March 2019.

The 114-bedroom property, which is set in 12 acres of parkland just one mile from the city centre, is set to receive a significant investment for improvements to support its rebrand as the Mercure Kenwood Hall Hotel & Spa. The property will feature locally inspired influences throughout, as part of the Mercure ethos.

Part of the Vine Hotels group, which owns and operates seven hotels and venues in the UK, the Hotel will be introducing key changes to its facilities over the next two years.

Key will be the creation of 24 new ‘Privilege’ bedrooms – air-conditioned guestroom that feature king-sized bed, complimentary mineral water, magazines and newspapers, internet, bathrobes, slippers and personal coffee machines.

In a further move to boost its corporate business, the Kenwood Hall’s 10 meeting rooms will be upgraded and have added luxuries such as individual espresso machines.

Work is nearing completion on a contemporary face-lift to the changing areas and reception of the hotel’s spa, and additionally a luxurious new bedroom suite is being created, every bedroom in the hotel will benefit from new Topbrass beds and a mini fridge, plus an additional 40 bedrooms will have air conditioning added.

Thomas Dubaere, chief operating officer, AccorHotels Northern Europe, commented: “We are seeing a lot of interest in Mercure brand in the UK and Kenwood Hall is one of two Mercure signings in Yorkshire already this year.

“The region has seen an increase in visitors for both leisure and business purposes and it is important to provide hotels that match the diverse requirements of these guests. The Mercure brand is designed to be flexible so its hotels can incorporate local touches into the design and overall guest experience allowing the hotels to offer something truly different without wavering from the internationally recognised and expected standards.”

The hotel is currently operating under the Best Western brand and will switch to Mercure at the end of March 2019.
