Hilton’s Garden Inn brand is coming to the Margaret River wine region

Hilton has just unveiled plans to build a Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in Western Australia.

In partnership with Pacifica Ausglobal Busselton, the Hilton Garden Inn Busselton will mark the fourth Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Australasia.

The new build will be a 112-room property, joining Parmelia Hilton Perth and DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Northbridge, alongside the forthcoming DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Waterfront and Hilton Garden Inn Albany.

Hilton Garden Inn Busselton will include an all-day dining restaurant serving the brand’s signature cooked-to-order breakfast, a bar serving shareable small plates and handcrafted cocktails and craft beers, a fitness centre, 242 square metres of flexible meeting space, and onsite parking for 60 vehicles.

Located in Busselton’s 38-hectare commercial, cultural and public space foreshore precinct, the hotel seeks to take advantage of the increase in domestic and international airport traffic expected from upgrades to Busselton Margaret River Airport currently underway.

Busselton is a city of 36,000 people located 220 kilometres south of Perth, and is a popular tourist destination and a gateway to the famous Margaret River wine region.

Guy Phillips, regional senior vice president of development at Hilton, said: “We are deeply committed to the West Australian market and when open, Hilton Garden Inn Busselton will mark our fifth hotel in the state.

“This signing highlights our strategy of positioning the right brands in the right locations, at the right time.”

Hilton Garden Inn Busselton will join 27 operating and 14 pipeline Hilton properties throughout Australasia.
