Accor has opened its first hotel in Victoria’s coastal resort town Portsea, with the opening of Mercure Portsea Golf Club and Resort on the Mornington Peninsula.
The new 4-star complex has been developed by Portsea Golf Club as part of a fully integrated multi-million dollar development incorporating a new club house, accommodation and function complex.
The Mercure offers 24 accommodation rooms and facilities for both business and leisure travellers, including an on-site restaurant (Spike) and conference facilities that can cater for corporate events, meetings and weddings for up to 300 people.
Accor’s Duncan Mars has been appointed Hotel General Manager of the property and is confident the Mercure will be beneficial for both the Golf Club and Portsea’s tourism industry. “By partnering with Portsea Golf Club it has enabled us to add to Portsea’s tourism offering and cater to the growing demand for premium accommodation by leisure travellers,” he says. “The Mercure will also provide new opportunities to build the meetings and events market in the region, which is already on the rise with a number of weddings and conferences booked at the hotel before it has opened, which is very encouraging.”
President of Portsea Golf Club, Haywood Richards, believes modern facilities combined with sweeping views will ensure Portsea Golf Club is regarded as one of the leading golf clubs in the country.
“With a new clubhouse, members lounge, world class facilities and boutique accommodation rooms, the club will cater for local, interstate and international golfers,” he says. “In addition, the redevelopment will enable the club to utilise the outstanding facilities for weddings and corporate functions.”
