Exeter Mercure undergoes £4m refurb

Mercure Southgate Hotel Exeter has undergone a £4 million upgrade with improvements to all areas of the hotel, reaffirming its position as the leading hotel in Exeter. The four-star city centre hotel is due to unveil its new look this June. 
Owned by the Moorfield Group, which owns 24 of the 31 Mercure UK hotels, the upgrade has seen the complete renovation of the Cloisters restaurant, the Lounge Bar, Seymour suite conference and banqueting room, as well as the upgrade of 26 bedrooms to the stylish new Mercure ‘design bedroom’ standard. More recently, an additional four-storey extension has added another 44 bedrooms to the hotel. A major reconfiguration and refurbishment of the lobby was also part of this programme.

In keeping with Mercure hotels’ distinctive character and individuality, the interior design references the cultural heritage of Exeter, in particular its maritime history. The overall new look is contemporary yet exuding an antique feel.

Frédéric Fontaine, head of Accor sales marketing and distribution, in UK and Ireland says “Mercure Southgate has now been transformed into a modern stylish hotel, perfect for today’s business and leisure travellers. These improvements coupled with the Mercure standards of excellence will now enable the Southgate to regain its position as the leading full service hotel in Exeter City Centre”.
Mercure hotels throughout the UK are mid market hotels located in prime locations, each providing individual character and charm, whilst focusing on traditional hotel keeping, with an emphasis on personal, warm service. There are over 700 Mercure Hotels worldwide.
