Distinction Hotels recently announced its acquisition of the Travelodge Hotel Palmerston North, set to take over operations from May 28, when the property is rebranded to Distinction Palmerston North Hotel & Conference Centre.

The four-star hotel is situated in the hub of Palmerston North’s CBD and features 85 modern guest rooms.

The property offers one of the largest conference venues in the lower North Island, with four meeting rooms and extensive on-site services that cater for up to 500 delegates.

Distinction Hotels chief executive, Duncan Fletcher, said the group’s latest acquisition was a strategic move to offer additional services and accommodation options.

“The Palmerston North hotel specialises in meetings, functions and conferences and we know the demand is there.

“We see this as a great opportunity to grow Distinction’s corporate and conference portfolio by refining and adding to the services already offered.”

With its latest acquisition, the Distinction Hotels Group will now have a portfolio of 11 hotels in locations throughout New Zealand.
