The historic Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel has undergone an extensive nine-month redesign across its public spaces, restaurant and bar, bedrooms and meeting rooms to transform its look.
The hotel is the second property the brand has unveiled in the UK that showcases its new lobby concept, which was first launched in Mercure London Bridge last year. Based on the 'la table d'hôtes', the new lobby concept puts the customer welcome at the heart of the experience.
Guests who are looking for a hassle free check-in and out at the hotel, which is located at the foot of Box Hill in the Surrey hills, are able to do so around an oak table by friendly staff who are on hand round the clock to ensure all guests receive a warm welcome.
Mercure is a 'locally inspired' brand and this is shown through the personal touches which pay homage to the literary roots of the area and historical background of the hotel. For example, in the Emlyn restaurant words from Austen’s classic, “Emma” can be found quoted on the wall, reminding guests of the Box Hill picnic set in the novel. Retro Penguin books can also be found in the library area of the lobby to encourage guests to submerge themselves into the literary world that encapsulates the area and hotel.
The hotel features 57 guestrooms styled with a contemporary and luxurious design that upholds traditional features. Each room showcases unique artwork, which is printed on antique mirrors and fabrics, and is furnished with a new flat screen TV with international satellite channels. High speed Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel free of charge and a 24-hour room service is also available.
