Accor is set to introduce Gladstone’s first five-star hotel with the opening of a Peppers hotel in mid-2024, in collaboration with Yaralla Sports Club.
Part of a vertical dual-branded hotel concept, the 32-room Peppers Gladstone will sit under the same roof as the 60-room Mantra Gladstone.
Construction has commenced on Peppers Gladstone, marking the first new hotel construction in the region in over a decade.
“We are thrilled to announce a Peppers hotel at one of Queensland’s most captivating central coast towns,” said Accor Pacific CEO, Sarah Derry.
“Peppers Gladstone will offer a unique and significant addition to our premium brand portfolio in Queensland. Its guestrooms, apartments and amenities will provide an elevated guest experience, particularly appealing to those seeking extra space and comfort for an extended stay.”
Designed by BSPN Architects and constructed by Mettle Projects, Peppers Gladstone will feature artfully curated guestrooms – ranging from King Studio Rooms to Superior Two Bedroom Apartments – inspired by the surrounding landscape, with fully equipped kitchens.
The hotel will also feature a heated outdoor swimming pool, eight-seater cinema room, gym, two onsite restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a members’ lounge.
“Our team is excited to be working collaboratively with Accor to bring to life our five-star dream for Central Queensland,” said Yaralla Sports Club CEO, Will Schroeder.
“Peppers Gladstone, in conjunction with Mantra Gladstone, will offer two levels of accommodation under one roof, meaning there will be two fantastic options for visitors to enjoy our wonderful city.”
The dual-branded property is expected to appeal to business and leisure travellers and will cater to small to large-scale meetings, expos and weddings within its various conference spaces.
