Accor has rebranded the hotel at Victoria’s home
of metropolitan harness racing as the Mantra Melbourne Melton,
under a franchise agreement with the owners of Tabcorp Park.
The 41-room hotel previously operated as the Quality
Hotel Tabcorp Park.
With superb panoramic views over the racecourse,
not only does the hotel offer the best seat in the house for
Tabcorp Park’s weekly harness racing, it also boasts a selection
of well-appointed guest rooms, including a mix of Standard Rooms,
Deluxe Rooms, and Apartments, three F&B outlets,
onsite car parking and extensive conference and events facilities
for functions of all sizes – from intimate events for 20 people to
large-scale dinners for 500.
Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon
McGrath, said, “We are excited to bring the extraordinary Mantra
brand to one of Australia’s best race tracks and are confident
that the Mantra Melbourne Melton will deliver exceptional
accommodation and an outstanding service experience for our valued
guests. Accor continues to expand its offerings in Australia, the
Pacific is a strong region and the future of travel is bright.”
Mantra is Australia’s largest hotel brand with
more than 75 properties across the country.
