Abode Hotels on Track to Open New Canberra Hotel This Month

Iconic Hotels by Geocon’s flagship brand, Abode Hotels, today confirmed that it will open the doors to its newest hotel at the end of the month.

Located in Canberra’s north-west and delivering 152 stylishly appointed self-contained, apartment style rooms to the Canberra accommodation market, Abode Belconnen is the eighth property to join the Abode Hotels portfolio, following the opening of Abode Malua Bay earlier this year.

Part of Geocon’s mixed-use Republic precinct, Abode Belconnen is surrounded by residential and commercial spaces, lifestyle shops, landscaped gardens, and food and beverage venues, including Canberra’s second No.10 Restaurant + Bar.

Also owned and operated by Iconic Hotels, No.10 Restaurant + Bar’s onsite presence allows Abode Belconnen guests to enjoy bed and breakfast packages during their stay, and convenient access for lunch or dinner.

In an Abode Hotels first, Abode Belconnen’s position within the mixed-use precinct grants guests access to a shared onsite pool, gym, and recreational area, which, according to Iconic Hotels general manager, Rien Donkin, meets a growing demand.

“The travel landscape has changed dramatically this year, and as part of this, we are seeing an increasing appetite among travellers for complete accommodation experiences, more than just places to stay,” said Mr Donkin.

“We are delighted to be able to cater to this growing demand with the amenities available to guests at Abode Belconnen,” he said.

Like all Abode Hotels, Abode Belconnen provides several room types to accommodate for all needs, including rooms for families or corporate groups, pet friendly rooms, and studios designed specifically for the mobility impaired.

All guest rooms include kitchenette and washer/dryer facilities, as well as free and unlimited WiFi and STAYCAST streaming – enabling guests to connect their device to the TV and enjoy all their favourite movies and shows. An Abode Pantry and access to Pantry Online is also available to all guests.

In line with the seven existing properties within the Abode Hotels portfolio, including five located across Canberra and two New South Wales based, Abode Belconnen prioritises convenience, accessibility, and reliability, offering guests value for money and consistent service.

With the COVID-19 pandemic having forced many other hotels across the market to close their doors over recent months, Abode Hotels’ ability to proceed with the opening of Abode Belconnen is a testament to the brand’s strength, established guest loyalty, and unwavering commitment from the wider Iconic Hotels team, according to Mr Donkin.

“Thanks to the team’s swift yet considered reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, the future of Iconic Hotels remains strong, with the development of more properties very much still in the pipeline, and a number of exciting brand milestones scheduled for the years to come,” he said.
