Accor strikes a deal in Victoria’s former gold rush boomtown


Accor, Australia’s largest hotel operator, announced that the former Quest Schaller Hotel Bendigo would rebrand to Mercure Bendigo Schaller, and join Accor’s rapidly growing network of mid-scale regional Victorian hotels, on 6 December.


With 118 boutique-style guestrooms spanning over four levels, Mercure Bendigo Schaller will cater to both business and leisure guests, offering 99 standard rooms, eight standard twin rooms, three standard access rooms and eight superior rooms, with a café/bar, a meeting room and a fitness centre.


Chief Operating Officer, Accor Pacific, Simon McGrath said, “With the Victorian Government focused on decentralising business outside of the CBD, Bendigo has been identified as a significant growth hub, set to boost the local economy and revitalise the northern-end of the city.



“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.



Mercure Bendigo Schaller is located close to Bendigo Central Township with its vibrant arts hub, heritage architecture, and rich history, with Bendigo Art Gallery (1887), La Trobe University all in close proximity. Bendigo is 150km North of Melbourne’s CBD and approximately 136km from Melbourne International Airport.


Guests can book now and stay at the Mercure Bendigo with special rates starting from $140.


Mercure Bendigo Schaller is located at 60 Lucan St Bendigo Victoria 3550.
