IHG Opens a New Hotel in Ballarat, Australia
Holiday Inn & Suites announced the plans to open their new Holiday Inn & Suites Ballarat Goldfields in 2024. Designed by international, award-winning Hachem Architecture, the 110-room hotel will be one of the region’s premier business, leisure and MICE destinations, with 400sqm of flexible meeting space including a large ballroom with stunning rural views, as well as an intimately designed 90-seat restaurant and bar, a day spa, gymnasium, and outdoor pool.
The hotel is located in Ballarat, which is also home to a number of iconic cultural and heritage assets of its own, such as Sovereign Hill, Her Majesty’s Theatre, which is Australia’s oldest continuously operating purpose-built theatre, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka and the Art Gallery of Ballarat to name a few.
Abhijay Sandilya, IHG’s VP of Development for Japan, Australasia and Japan, said:
"We have been steadily growing IHG’s presence in regional Victoria and Holiday Inn & Suites Ballarat Goldfields will complement Holiday Inn & Suites Werribee, which opens this month, along with Holiday Inns in other great locations like Geelong, Richmond, Ringwood, Wagga Wagga and Melbourne’s Bourke Street Mall.”
