Mercure Port of Echuca - high res EDITED

Accor is set to increase its network in regional Victoria with the addition of a Mercure in the Murray River town of Echuca on the Victorian border.

The 62 room hotel is located in the heart of Echuca and is the historic port town’s first internationally branded hotel.

Formerly the Quality Inn Port of Echuca, the recently refurbished hotel will be re-branded to Mercure Port of Echuca from 22 May 2013.

The hotel offers excellent facilities for both business and leisure travellers, including an on-site restaurant, lobby lounge and bar, outdoor resort style swimming pool, and meeting and conference facilities that can accommodate a private meeting for 12 to a fully catered function for up to 200, with rooms starting from AUD$140 per night.

“A globally recognised brand coming to town will be very beneficial for both the hotel and whole of Echuca’s tourism industry,” said Accor’s General Manager Franchise Hotels, Dino Mezzatesta.

“The hotel will bring guests an authentic experience and a high level of comfort and service.”

Mercure Port of Echuca is part of a growing network of Accor hotels in regional Victoria. It joins other Mercure hotels in destinations such as Melbourne, Horsham, Bairnsdale, the Yarra Valley and Geelong.
