Accor has inked a franchise agreement deal with Tabcorp Park, a horse racing venue in Melbourne, to rebrand the on-site hotel to Mantra Melbourne Melton.
The 41-room hotel aims to become a destination of choice for racegoers, business travellers, sporting groups and families looking for convenient, contemporary trackside accommodation when it reopens to the public.
Overlooking the racecourse, the hotel claims to offer “the best seat in the house for Tabcorp Park’s weekly harness racing”. It also boasts a selection of guestrooms, including a mix of Standard Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, and Apartments. Amenities include three F&B outlets, on-site car parking, as well as conference and events facilities for functions of all sizes – from intimate events for 20 people to large-scale dinners for 500.
Since acquiring Mantra in 2018, Accor has continued to grow the brand, with five new Australian hotels opening in the past two years.
