Leading Australian boutique hotel chain 8Hotels has added Thredbo’s 36-room Denman Hotel in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains to its fast-growing collection of properties.
The Denman Hotel’s owner-operator, Ed Denny, said following the agreement with 8Hotels, which commenced on December 1, he was looking forward to taking a step back from running the boutique property which is well known for its restaurant as much as its stylish rooms.
“We’re excited to be partnering with 8Hotels,” he said. “They have proven themselves to be a successful hotel operator and I’m looking forward to working with them and discovering the true potential of The Denman Hotel.”
8Hotels CEO Paul Fischmann said The Denman Hotel signing was another strategic partnership for the Sydney-based group.
“The Denman has always enjoyed strong occupancies throughout the ski season,” Fischmann said.
“But we believe there is a great opportunity to drive bookings throughout the off-season, using a range of initiatives including special events such as writers-in-residence camps.
“Likewise, we believe the Denman Hotel, makes a welcome addition to the 8Hotels Collection, which now includes 17 properties, including other leisure offerings such as the Paris8 Apartments, Hepburn at Hepburn and Chandra Luxury Villas in Bali,” he said.
