Best Western Hotels and Resorts has added two properties to its NSW portfolio in Quirindi and Dubbo.
Officially opened 30 March, 2016, Best Western Quirindi RSL Motel is a newly-built property located within the Quirindi RSL grounds.
The motel is a welcome addition to the small town’s room stock, providing 20 new 4-star king suites that offer a high standard of comfort with free Wi-Fi in all guest rooms, 50-inch smart televisions, air-conditioning and picturesque mountain views.
There is a licensed restaurant, lounge bar and conference and meeting facilities as part of the Quirindi RSL Club just 50 metres from the motel.
Staff of both the Quirindi RSL and the motel recently celebrated the opening of the property with many local dignitaries, including Deputy Prime Minister and New England MP, Barnaby Joyce.
Also joining the celebrations was Best Western Australasia’s Head of Commercial, Steve Richards.
“We’re delighted to welcome the team at Best Western Quirindi RSL Motel to the Best Western family and look forward to working with the local community to promote all the wonderful experiences this region has to offer our guests,” he said.
“The addition of 20 more available rooms to this area will boost the local economy and extend the offering of the RSL Club.”
The AUD$3 million project began construction in April 2015 and has been a discussion point for the RSL board since 2006.
Further west in Dubbo, Best Western Bluegum Motel, centrally located on Cobra Street, also joined the global chain this month.
Owner operators Robert and Amanda Zatta took over the motel in early 2014 and have undertaken a major renovation project due for completion in 2017.
The newly renovated rooms now feature high-end finishes with stone bench tops, walk-in frameless showers, custom cabinetry and furnishings and top of the line Samsung 50-inch smart televisions.
Some of the many upgrades across all 24 rooms include whisper-quiet split-system air-conditioning, pillow-top beds with custom bedding, block-out drapes, new glass font mini-bar fridges, complimentary Wi-Fi and 12 premium Foxtel channels.
Also available to all guests is an onsite saltwater pool, barbecue area, off-street parking (limited trailer space also available), room service for breakfast and dinner and charge-back facilities with many local restaurants.
Zatta said that they were looking forward to leveraging the global nature of the Best Western brand:
“We’re thrilled to be rebranding our motel as Best Western,” Zatta said. “The power of its global reach through its Best Western Rewards loyalty program and the operational support we receive were key reasons we decided to join.
“We’ve invested heavily into our business and Best Western will be a strong business partner for us.”
On welcoming Best Western Bluegum Motel into the brand, Richards said: “Best Western Bluegum Motel is exactly the type of property we are looking for as we continue to grow our brands. The dedication to offering such a high quality of service and accommodation standard is the foundation on which Best Western stands.”
