In just its first 12 months, the ALH Group’s accommodation brand Nightcap Hotels has hit 41 locations nationwide and the pub-based group is showing no signs of slowing down.

“We’ve created an environment in which our guests have everything they need to eat, drink, play and most importantly stay,” said ALH Group’s National Accommodation Manager, Brett Salter.

“Our guest feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we put this down to our all-inclusive model ensuring guests can enjoy dinner and a complimentary nightcap at the bar, followed by a great night’s sleep within our custom designed rooms.”

Nightcap Hotels is operated by ALH Group, owner and operator of over 330 licensed venues across Australia including iconic hotels and neighbourhood pubs, serving over 57,000 meals a day and employing 15,000-plus people.

Salter said the expansion was in response to the demand for affordable, and contemporary accommodation in suburban and regional locations across Australia.

“Nightcap Hotels is dedicated to providing an all-inclusive, affordable sleepover, with contemporary designed rooms, our Australian-made signature King Koil beds, free 24/7 WiFi, bars, bistro and restaurant dining all within a friendly, laid-back atmosphere,” Salter said.

Launched in May 2018, Salter said Nightcap Hotels “provides a niche contemporary experience to the suburban environment, designed to meet the needs of travellers whether business or pleasure”.

He said the most recent addition to Nightcap Hotels, The Ranch Hotel in Macquarie Park, Sydney has undergone extensive renovations of the accommodation facilities to ensure they meet the stringent brand standards of all Nightcap Hotels.

Salter revealed Nightcap Hotels would continue to grow following ongoing renovations and improvements, with preparations to brand Springwood Hotel Brisbane, Excelsior Hotel Campbellfield, Watermark Hotel Glenelg, Exeter Hotel Port Adelaide, and Ocean Beach Hotel on the NSW central coast, with the aim to reach 100 Nightcap Hotels by 2022.

“To see what our amazing team have achieved over the last 12 months is truly remarkable,” he said. “Expanding to 41 Nightcap Hotels and experiencing such positive guest reviews, growth in repeat guests across multiple hotels, and double-digit sales growth in such a short time is extremely pleasing.

“As a team looking at the opportunity to expand the Nightcap Hotels brand is what drives us each and every day,” Salter said.
