GROWTH in regional centres outside of Melbourne has caught the eye of Accor, which will rebadge the Quest Schaller Hotel in the Victorian gold rush town of Bendigo under its Mercure brand.
Mercure Bendigo Schaller will have 118 boutique style guestrooms spanning over four levels. The offering will include 99 standard rooms, eight standard twin rooms, three standard access rooms and eight superior rooms, with a café and bar, a meeting room and a fitness centre.
“With the Victorian Government focused on decentralising business outside of the CBD, Bendigo has been identified as a major growth hub, set to boost the local economy and revitalise the northern-end of the city,” chief operating officer, Accor Pacific, Simon McGrath said.
“We are excited to bring the internationally recognised Mercure brand, with its warm local hospitality, to Bendigo for the first time, together with hotel owners, Bendigo Schaller Hotels, as the city makes a resurgence,” concluded McGrath.
