Accor’s Peppers brand arrives in the Yarra
Accor, the largest hotel operator in Australia, has opened its first hotel in Victoria’s picturesque Yarra Valley with the opening of Peppers Marysville.
Opening in 2015 and developed in collaboration with the Victorian Government following the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, the property features 101 modern guestrooms, including five suites, a conference centre with five meeting and conferencing spaces catering for up to 350 guests, a restaurant and bar, gymnasium, tennis court, heated outdoor swimming pool, sauna, wellness centre and day spa.
“Peppers Marysville is a unique addition to our collection of hotels, resorts and apartments across Australia. It is fitting that one of Australia’s finest examples of boutique accommodation is now associated with Peppers, a brand synonymous with providing bespoke hotel experiences to guests for over 35 years,” said Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath. “We’re seeing strong visitor numbers at our regional properties, especially those located within easy driving distance of major cities, and we’re forecasting greater growth with travellers now able to travel freely across all Australian states and territories and the introduction of the trans-Tasman bubble.”
The hotel has joined the Accor portfolio following the sale to new owners The Shakespeare Property Group.
Peppers Marysville is the fourth hotel that The Shakespeare Property Group has partnered with Accor on in Australia, following the success of Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort, Pullman Cairns International and Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort.
Located just 90 minutes from Melbourne and tucked away in the forested foothills of Victoria’s Great Dividing Range, Marysville has long been a favourite getaway destination thanks to its tranquil riverside location, culinary delights, wonderful scenery and outdoor adventures.
Marysville is also minutes from Lake Mountain, a popular snow field, perfect for first timers and families alike.
Peppers Marysville joins a network of more than 20 Peppers retreats, resorts and CBD hotels across Australia and New Zealand. The Peppers brand has become synonymous with a sense of refined indulgence, an attention to detail and excellent personal service.
