The brand-new locally inspired Mercure Newport hotel has opened its doors to the public for the first time today. Conveniently located in the heart of the city centre, at the top of the historic Chartist Tower, the new Mercure Newport Hotel is perfectly placed to discover both the modern city and the surrounding Welsh countryside. Featuring contemporary bedrooms, an open plan restaurant and outdoor rooftop terrace at 'Bar & Kitchen @NP20', a Fitness Centre and a range of Meeting and Event spaces, the Mercure Newport is a welcome addition to the South Wales hotel, leisure and business scene.
Newport is a vibrant, multi-cultural city steeped in a rich industrial heritage, where traditional industries sit alongside new electronics and financial service sectors. This local heritage has been incorporated into the hotel's design, with industrial themed accents such as the use of metal and timber materials and a contrasting colour palette of white, black and grey tones featuring throughout. The hotel has also teamed up with Welsh artist Caroline Rees to create an artwork inspired by the city's famous Transporter Bridge as a tribute to the local area.
The hotel is situated next to Friars Walk shopping centre and just 400m - a mere seven minute walk, from Newport Train Station. It is also perfectly located for those looking to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside, where an abundance of walking, cycling and wellbeing opportunities can be found. In addition, there are multiple tourist attractions within easy reach, including Roman Caerleon and Tredegar House.
Guests can enjoy delicious cuisine and cocktails at the hotel's 'Bar & Kitchen @NP20', offering residents and non-residents an urban all-day dining experience. The restaurant has a lively outdoor terrace area, which is perfect for cocktails with friends, pre-dinner drinks and casual dining.
The hotel has 135 spacious, contemporary and comfortable rooms with stunning views of Newport. Guests also have the option of upgrading to a luxurious junior suite where they can enjoy additional space and a range of enhanced amenities. Whilst for those looking to keep up with their fitness goals the hotel has a fully equipped gym for guests to use during their stay.
Ideal for business travellers, the hotel has five flexible meeting and event spaces, providing guests with a convenient space to meet, work and entertain. The event floor also has spacious breakout areas which are ideal for coffee and networking.
