The Sebel hotel network across Australia is set to expand with the Accor group this week announcing two new properties in Victoria and Queensland – The Sebel South Brisbane and upcoming $35 million waterfront project, The Sebel Yarrawonga (pictured).

Accor officially welcomed its first property on the Southside of the Brisbane River this week with addition of The Sebel South Brisbane at 50 Water Street.

In close proximity to the commercial and entertainment hub of South Bank and the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, the 63-room hotel offers apartment-style accommodation for guests plus a selection of intimate conference and meeting solutions, including a boardroom with seating for up to 14 guests.

In regional Victoria, a new $35 million resort-style development, The Sebel Yarrawonga, is set to be built on The Point overlooking Lake Mulwala. Construction of the 120-room hotel and serviced apartment facility is scheduled to begin in early 2016, with an opening date in early 2018,

The waterfront hotel will form the centrepiece of a broader resort and marina complex planned by development company, Lotus Living, and hotel guests will have access to an impressive complex expected to include a bar and bistro, restaurant, and 300-seat conference facility.

Accor Pacific chief operating officer, Simon McGrath, said: “For more than 50 years The Sebel name has been renowned for its historical legacy, style and exceptional hotel destinations. We are excited by our latest partnerships with The Sebel which represent an opportunity for Accor to further capitalise on the growth in the serviced apartments sector and diversify from hotel and resort-style accommodation which has been our core product for over 20 years.”

With the recent addition of The Sebel South Brisbane, The Sebel network currently includes 23 properties across Australia and New Zealand.
