Accor will open six UK hotels under the Mercure brand by the end of this year.

The hotels are located in Birmingham, Nottingham, Cardiff, Bedford, Telford and Harlow.

Previously operating under the Park Inn brand, these six hotels have recently been acquired by the Danish property group Proark and are in the process of being extensively refurbished.

The first three; Mercure Bedford Centre Hotel, Mercure Telford Centre Hotel and Mercure Nottingham Sherwood Hotel, have already opened under the Mercure brand, with the refurbishment of each hotel due to fully complete by the end of October.

The remaining three hotels; Mercure Cardiff North Hotel, Mercure Birmingham West Hotel and Mercure Harlow Hotel are set to be branded as Mercure by the end of this year.

Jean-Marc Vendioux, senior vice president managed hotels UKI, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Proark on these hotels and are proud to brand them as Mercure hotels. Guests can expect a hotel which provides an incredibly high level of personalised service and the quality they expect from a Mercure, elevated by the look and feel of a hotel rooted in its local community."
