Hotel La Tour to open in Milton Keynes

The £39m investment into the hotel includes 261 bedrooms, 14,000 square feet of events space, a gym, and a 14th floor restaurant and sky bar which will reportedly offer the highest viewpoint in the county.

Hotel La Tour, the privately owned British hospitality company, has announced it is set to open in Milton Keynes in April 2022, following a £39m investment.

The mirror steel clad property comprises 261 bedrooms, 14,000 square feet of events space, a gym, and a 14th floor restaurant and sky bar which will reportedly offer the highest viewpoint in the county.

The hotel is located in the heart of Milton Keynes Central with “good transport links”; the M1 is a five-minute drive and Luton Airport just 30 minutes away. Additionally, the hotel is next door to a 1400-space car park with electric charging stations and the Centre:MK Shopping Mall.

Additionally, Hotel La Tour said its build emphasises sustainability and has created 180 local jobs. The property is set to become the first building to meet the Exceptional Developments policy in the Central Milton Keynes Alliance Plan.

All of the bedrooms and suites will feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views over Milton Keynes Central or Campbell Park, as well as in-room technology such as Ultra HD TVs, Ultra-fast WIFI and 24-hour room service.  

The first floor of Hotel La Tour is dedicated to conferences and events with nine “high-tech” rooms, and its fully licensed wedding space includes access to a private outdoor terrace. 

 Meanwhile, the 14th floor restaurant reportedly offers a 360-degree panoramic view over Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. 

The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, with all dishes using British sourced produce. The bar offering will also include classic and contemporary cocktails, fine wines and champagnes, and locally sourced brews.

The Milton Keynes hotel will also include a 30m high, LED-lit stainless steel “sun” design circle which the hotel said was created “to align with the sun on the longest day of the year”.

Mark Stuart, managing director, said: “We are incredibly excited to open Hotel La Tour in Milton Keynes. Our aim is to deliver best in class, providing visitors, locals and hotel guests with a unique perspective of Milton Keynes and world-class amenities. 

“Encapsulating the town’s aspiration to be better by design, we have worked hard to create an aesthetically pleasing and sustainable building that delivers on luxury as well as functionality. We are committed to supporting the growth of Milton Keynes’ economy and this investment demonstrates our confidence in its strength.”
