Motorway service operator Welcome Break has just completed a £1.7m refurbishment of the Days Inn Milton Keynes hotel at its Newport Pagnell site, located between junction 14 and 15 of the M1.

The site, which was the first service station accessible to all traffic in the UK, also received a further £340,000 investment earlier this year opening both Harry Ramsden’s and Subway to customers.

The renovation included the integration of a selection of bedrooms, originally located separately from the main hotel complex, into the wider building, ensuring customers can remain inside when moving between their room and the communal recreation areas.

Rod McKie, CEO of Welcome Break, commented: “The refurbishment of our hotel at Newport Pagnell is the latest stage of our comprehensive 2015 investment programme which has also seen the launch of seven new food courts around the country, bringing the total number to 10.

“The Days Inn Milton Keynes hotel now provides customers with the warm, comfortable and rewarding experience that Welcome Break prides itself on and is the ideal place for tired travellers to stop off and enjoy some relaxation away from the motorway.”
