Tabcorp Park inks deal with Accor to open Mantra Melbourne Melton hotel at home of Victorian Harness Racing.

Accor, together with the owners of Tabcorp Park, announced the hotel at Victoria’s home of metropolitan harness racing has been rebranded to Mantra Melbourne Melton, under a franchise agreement.

The 41-room hotel is set to become a destination of choice for racegoers, business travellers, sporting groups and families looking for convenient, contemporary trackside accommodation when it reopens to the public.

With superb panoramic views over the racecourse, not only does the hotel offer the best seat in the house for Tabcorp Park’s weekly harness racing, it also boasts a selection of well-appointed guest rooms, including a mix of Standard Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, and Apartments, three food and beverage outlets, onsite car parking and extensive conference and events facilities for functions of all sizes – from intimate events for 20 people to large-scale dinners for 500.

“We are excited to bring the extraordinary Mantra brand to one of Australia’s best race tracks and are confident that the Mantra Melbourne Melton will deliver exceptional accommodation and an outstanding service experience for our valued guests.

“Accor continues to expand its offerings in Australia, the Pacific is a strong region and the future of travel is bright,” said Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath.
