Mantra Richmont Hotel has opened its doors on Kennigo Street in Brisbane’s Spring Hill, offering the latest boutique rooms in the city.
The 110-room boutique hotel was developed by Richmont Holdings and it is the first project undertaken in Australia by the Malaysian-based company.
According to Mantra Group, the new-build hotel “embraces a fusion of the past and the present, with modern design and stylish finishes complemented by the historic charm of Kennigo Social Restaurant and Bar, opening in the latter half of 2016”.
Ideally positioned for the business traveller, Mantra Richmont Hotel has quick access to the airport and is only minutes from the CBD and Fortitude Valley. Brisbane’s Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, said the new hotel would help fill a niche market in the city’s hotel sector.
“While the demand for hotel rooms in Brisbane continues to grow in key segments like leisure and events travel, there is growing demand for strategically-located accommodation for the business traveller,” Cr Quirk said.
Mantra Group currently has nine properties (nearly 900 rooms in total) in Brisbane CBD including recent additions Mantra on Edward, Mantra Midtown Apartments, Mantra on Mary, Mantra on the Quay, Mantra Terrace Hotel and BreakFree Fortitude Valley as well as its established hotels, Mantra South Bank and Mantra on Queen.
