La Vie Hotels & Resorts has signed a multi-partnership deal with Amber Property Group to manage its Melbourne hotels – The Sebel Melbourne Ringwood, previously franchised with Accor, and the upcoming The Motley Richmond.
On this multi-partnership signing, Craig Bond, managing director, La Vie Hotels & Resorts, said: “We are humbled and incredibly excited to be working with the team at Amber Property Group to manage their beautifully designed Melbourne hotels in Richmond and Ringwood, two of the city’s busiest suburban hubs.”
He added that “The Motley will not disappoint” and that the property will be “a lifestyle hotel that the locals can claim as their own”, while commenting that The Sebel Ringwood is “a stunning property” with extensive facilities that business and leisure travellers will appreciate.
Rachael Brady, CEO, Amber Property Group, said: “The Sebel Ringwood Melbourne is a very special property and is much loved by regular travellers to the east for work, while The Motley will provide a true lifestyle hotel experience in the heart of Richmond. We are excited to see these hotels flourish under La Vie’s guidance.”
The Motley Richmond is slated to open in early January 2023 and will feature 80 rooms. It is located on Bridge Road, close to shopping boutiques, the MCG and Rod Laver Arena, with Melbourne CBD only a short distance away.
