AccorHotels announces opening of Novotel in South Brisbane
Novotel Brisbane South Bank will be positioned on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, surrounded by 17 hectares of lush parklands, stunning city views and world class eateries including the property’s very own modern Australian restaurant, Spice Central.
Matt Young, Vice President of Operations for Queensland and Northern Territory, says the hotel will be a progressive and attractive destination for travellers looking to experience the cultural and culinary mecca that Brisbane’s south side has become.
“South Bank is bustling! Over 12 million people visit the area annually for conferences and business events, generating $391 million in economic impact to Brisbane. This makes city accommodation highly sought after.
“Whether you are booking an escape with friends, attending a conference or want to indulge in great food, Novotel Brisbane South Bank will be a very exciting multi-purpose destination for all,” Mr Young said.
The 4.5 star hotel, designed by architect NRA Co Lab will exude modernity with 238 rooms boasting open spaces and natural light. Each room will also take note from its cultural surroundings housing one of four iconic Brisbane images from South Bank Arbour to Kurilpa Bridge.
Novotel Brisbane South Bank will include modern essentials such as, Smart TVs with access to Netflix, free Fox movie channels, alarm clocks with wireless charging and USB docks. Suites will also boast Dyson hairdryers and Nespresso coffee machines.
The hotel will further feature an outdoor heated swimming pool, which some rooms will have direct access to, a state-of-the-art gymnasium and an ultra-modern meeting and conferencing space with banqueting facilities for up to 100 people.
A great place for business and leisure alike, General Manager Jean-Phillippe Lagarde says food and beverage will be a big focus for the hotel.
“Novotel Brisbane South Bank will house two unique and exciting restaurants which will be available to guests and the general public.
“Our restaurant, Spice Central will offer modern Australian cuisine with an influence from cultures all over the world.
“A major feature will be our open dining experience! Our chefs will be on display, with a completely open kitchen in the heart of the restaurant.
“Guests can be seated around the kitchen as chefs prepare gourmet cuisines with fresh ingredients on hand,” Mr Lagarde said.
Within walking distance to South Bank’s cultural playground, Novotel Brisbane South Bank will boast a ground floor pathway connecting the hotel to the Brisbane Convention and Entertainment Centre.
Guests will also be a stroll away from major hubs like South Bank Cultural Forecourt, Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Museum & Science Centre and Streets Beach.
