Renovated at a cost of £15m over the last three years, Jurys Inn Hinkley Island is a fantastic hotel for your conferences and events. Arriving here couldn’t be easier, being only 30 minutes from Coventry, Leicester and Birmingham – you can easily find a parking space in one of the 650 spaces available.

On entering the hotel lobby, you immediately notice the stylish design here. The renovation has been a complete success. It’s a really nice space and would make a fab impression on your delegates as they arrive. From the lobby it is really easy to access the meeting rooms, the Juvenate gym and pool, the superb Marco Pierre White restaurant, Piazza (with its Costa coffee bar) and the fabulous Triumph bar.

Just a short walk away is the fabulous conference Rotunda which is a fantastic light and spacious hub for all the conference rooms to use for coffee, break, lunches, drinks receptions etc.

Parking:  650 free places for cars

Coach / Bus Pick-up Location at hotel: Yes, coaches can pull up right outside the main hotel entrance or also at the side entrance which leads directly to the London and Paris suites. Coaches can also park at the hotel – no problem at all.
 
Number of bedrooms: 362 in total – Comprised of Standard, Superior and Executive rooms. Including in the inventory is 120 double rooms, 130 double double rooms, 19 Executive rooms and 4 Suites.

All 362 bedrooms here have been totally renovated and they are fantastic – it’s also worth pointing out that the Superior, Executive and Suites are all super spacious too. We had a perfect stay in an Executive room – excellent air conditioning, fab bathroom and excellent facilities. As a rule, every bedroom here is a double bed or larger – there are no single beds at all. Which is amazing! Our recommendation would be to go for an Executive room if you can as they have a super king-sized bed, Sky TV, safe, and a fridge (with complimentary soft drinks, biscuits & sweets). Perfect!

Number of floors: 3

Business centre: No dedicated business centre but any of the conference team or reception team can organise printing / copying for you. There is also a photocopier to use in the Training Centre on the 3rd floor.

Wi-fi: Yes – superfast 400Mb connection which can be sectioned off and password protected if your conference requires a high level of security. It was excellent throughout the hotel – bedrooms and public areas too.

Fitness gym: Yes, a fantastic and newly fitted Rejuvenate hotel gym complete with excellent Precor equipment, free weights and all the usual gym balls, etc. Definitely one of the better hotels gyms we’ve used on our travels. Excellent changing room facilities too. Free to use for hotel guests.

Spa & Swimming Pool: We loved the newly fitted swimming pool and the relaxing area around it. Complete with hot tub steam room and sauna it had everything – we loved it! Very luxurious and relaxing.

RESTAURANTS & BARS
The star of the show here, from a food perspective, is the fantastic Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse, Bar and Grill which is just to the left of the reception area. Super stylish, great design, fab service and glorious food, what more do you need? The steak we had on our visit was mind blowing!

Just off from the lobby is the lovely Triumph Bar – a tribute to Triumph motorbike company, which has a unique place in this heart of the people in this region with various factories being based here making their iconic motorcycles. It is a really nice area and is the ideal place to grab a bite to eat, a drink, and to generally chill out in the hotel. It is also sometimes used as a coffee break area for some conferences in the London and Paris rooms during quieter times in the mornings etc.

The lovely and bright Piazza café is the buzzing hub of the hotel. Lots of one to one meetings are held here as well as people catching up with work or having a natter. It’s a very nice place to be – serving coffee, drinks, food – it’s got the lot and was very popular during our stay.

It is worth pointing out that the London Suite and the Lakeside room also have their own bar for evening functions.

MEETING / CONFERENCE ROOMS
In total there are 27 meeting rooms of various sizes in the hotel – demonstrating just why it is a thriving conference venue. Spread over three floors (although predominantly on the ground floor) there are masses of flexibility here for every type of meeting for your clients.

As well as numerous smaller boardrooms / breakout rooms there are two fantastic large spaces at the hotel. The glorious Paris and London rooms – which we will cover in more depth below.

The centre of the conference centre is the Rotunda Suite which is an excellent and welcoming space which sits centrally and is the perfect location for your registration desk, coffee, breaks, lunches and drinks receptions – a great place for your event branding too! It spans three levels and with imagination can be used to every dramatic effect – such as musicians being based around the balconies of the upper floors and even an acrobat suspended by a ribbon from the 3rd floor rafters.

Other stand out spaces are the Lakeside Suite which is fantastic for drinks receptions, medium sized dinner and as the name suggests, overlooks the hotel’s own lake. The top floor is the home to the amazing Training Centre, which we LOVED! More detail on this below.

Meeting Space Highlight: Paris Suite
With its high ceiling and flexible options, this is the largest meeting room in the hotel and as such, offers many options for your clients. With space for 650 in theatre it makes it ideal for large conferences, dinner dances, awards evening and much more. Access is straight in from a private entrance (if you need to avoid coming in through the main hotel lobby) or 20 seconds walk from reception. Registration and coffee / lunch breaks are handled in the excellent Rotunda area. What a fabulous option this room is.

Meeting Space Highlight: London Suite
Situated just across from the Paris suite, the London Suite is the second largest meeting space in the hotel and dovetails really well with it, as the perfect place to hold exhibitions, coffee and lunch breaks or to be used as a flexible space in its own right. It also splits into three sperate rooms or offers a capacity of 300 pax when used as one large room. It is an excellent option and offers great opportunities for association conferences who usually require a large conference room and a separate room for an exhibition and refreshments. The other great advantage it has, is the ability for it to be split into numerous sizes & set-ups as it is possible to have it as three completely separate rooms (complete with their0 own access doors – the Westminster, Piccadilly & Mayfair rooms.

Meeting Space Highlight: The Training Suite
The fabulous Training Suite was our personal favourite part of the hotel. Occupying the top floor of the Rotunda Suite, this was a fantastically styled area. As you exit the lift you are met with a very contemporary lounge – perfect for registration, coffee breaks, lunch, etc. The suite itself is comprised of 6 meeting rooms all named after Triumph motorcycles – a great nod back to the heritage of the area. The rooms were excellent for training courses, breakout rooms or small boardroom type meetings. They contain contemporary touches like pin boards and large flat screen TVs. Trust us – this area is fantastic and will wow your clients

SUMMARY
Well, what’s not to love about Jurys Inn Hinckley Island? We really enjoyed our time there and not just because of the fantastic gym & pool, the super comfortable bedrooms or the excellent Marco Pierre White restaurant – excellent as they all were! It was more because we could see the opportunities that are available here for your clients. £15m worth of renovations, fab location, masses of meeting rooms, and superb customer service make this definitely worth checking out at your earliest opportunity.
