Mantra Signs Five Hotels in Australia and New Zealand

Mantra has signed five hotels with a combined total of more than 900 rooms across Australia and New Zealand. The hotels are:

- Peppers Southbank, Melbourne VIC;
- Mantra 900 Hay Street, Perth WA;
- Peppers Queenstown Resort, Queenstown NZ;
- Mantra Club Crocodile, Airlie Beach QLD; and
- Mantra Observatory, Port Macquarie NSW.

This continued growth and development can be attributed to the Groups surging profile and dominant positioning as a hotel operator of choice, said Mantra Group Chief Executive Officer, Bob East. This latest group of acquisitions reinforces the strong momentum in our growth strategy and highlights our ability to convert our pipeline.

In FY2016, Mantra Group increased its portfolio by 11 new properties, adding more than 3,000 rooms to its inventory, making it Australias fastest growing hotel group for the year.

With seven acquisition announcements in the first five months of FY2017, were well-placed to exceed last years record result, Mr East said.
