BEST WESTERN PLUS has arrived in two of New South Wales’ popular regional destinations, with the opening of the BEST WESTERN PLUS Apollo International Hotel in Newcastle’s upbeat Charlestown and the BEST WESTERN PLUS HW Boutique on Port Macquarie’s stunning beachfront.

Rob Anderson, Best Western Australasia Chief Executive said the two new hotels in Newcastle and Port Macquarie takes the Australasian branch of the World’s Biggest Hotel Family to 17 BEST WESTERN PLUS properties, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

“Best Western’s global reputation for providing quality accommodation and excellent service has gone from strength to strength since launching its three hotel descriptors BEST WESTERN PREMIER, BEST WESTERN PLUS and BEST WESTERN in 2011,” Mr Anderson said.

“Signing the 94-room BEST WESTERN PLUS Apollo International Hotel comes at a time when Newcastle is looking to revitalise itself through its City Evolutions strategy. This includes developing East Newcastle to be the home of new vibrant restaurants, bars, galleries and venues, boosting Newcastle as a new events and family holiday destination.

“No doubt Newcastle will become a new meetings and events spot for regional businesses with this significant investment in new city infrastructure, and the BEST WESTERN PLUS Apollo International Hotel gives visitors a new opportunity to stay at a hotel that delivers a globally renowned higher level of comfort and style,” he said.

Similarly, in Port Macquarie the BEST WESTERN PLUS HW Boutique has 44 beautifully appointed rooms, each with free wi-fi, LCD TVs, an express check-in facility, free parking and plush modern amenities.

“I am delighted to welcome the BEST WESTERN PLUS HW Boutique to Best Western, and the uninterrupted ocean views from this hotel in particular, make it an unbeatable choice for families planning a trip away to Port Macquarie,” Mr Anderson said.

Trevor Morris, Director of Linear Group which owns the two hotels believes the BEST WESTERN PLUS HW Boutique has arguably the best location and ocean views in Lake Macquarie, while the BEST WESTERN PLUS Apollo International Hotel in Newcastle is well known in the area and has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and added 44 new rooms to its inventory.

“They can enjoy the newest, largest and most elegant hotel rooms in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie; delicious food and banqueting options; plus a meetings and events service that offers the most up to date technology and facilities that are among the most highly sought after in hotels today,” he said.

The four and a half star (4.5) Newcastle hotel has a broad range of conference facilities, all with natural light and a long-established, quality restaurant onsite that showcases the best quality local produce and wines from neighbouring regions including the Hunter Valley.

“Our new executive chef David Cross is committed to excellence in both the produce that he uses and the outstanding meals that he turns out. Our business and leisure travellers will experience an even better standard of accommodation going forward, with added luxury touches such as bath robes and slippers in many of our luxury guest rooms,” Mr Morris said.
