Australia’s first Mövenpick hotel opens its doors

Accor has opened the doors to Australia’s first Mövenpick hotel, which stands on one of Hobart’s principal heritage streetscapes near the city’s waterfront.

Welcoming its first guests yesterday, the 221-room Mövenpick Hotel Hobart features boutique interiors inspired by Tasmanian nature, fine food and wine experiences at Tesoro Modern Italian restaurant, a daily ‘Chocolate Hour’, and an assortment of other Mövenpick brand signature offerings.

All guestrooms are situated on floors three to 18, with many providing breathtaking panoramic views and connecting guests with Hobart’s spectacular natural setting, while the common areas, designed by global design agency Greymatters, are located on the first two floors.

Mövenpick Hotel Hobart also boasts a flexible function space for up to 100 guests, which can be divided into two smaller meeting rooms, along with a pre-event area and full bar, and a gym for those wanting to keep fit during their stay.

Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath said: “Mövenpick Hotel Hobart transcends the traditional hotel experience by masterfully blending the brand’s Swiss heritage with a premium hospitality experience.

“We’re so excited to share this stunning property with guests visiting Hobart from other parts of Tasmania and Australia.

“Accor is planning more locations for Mövenpick across the Pacific, and we believe this premium brand will quickly gain recognition for its culinary and service excellence.”

With a Swiss heritage dating back to the 1940s, Mövenpick has hotels in more than 82 locations across Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
