IHG EX­PANDS IN RE­GIONAL NSW

Business Events News - - Front Page -

THE In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tels Group (IHG) has ex­panded its port­fo­lio in NSW with the ad­di­tion of two high-pro­file prop­er­ties outside Syd­ney.

The for­mer Sebel Re­sort & Spa Hawkes­bury Val­ley (pic­tured), one of the most pop­u­lar con­fer­ence prop­er­ties at the foot of the Blue Moun­tains, will from this week op­er­ate as the Crowne Plaza Hawkes­bury Val­ley.

It has been joined in the IHG sta­ble by the Kirk­ton Park Hunter Val­ley, an up­mar­ket estate suited to cor­po­rate re­treats which has also worn the Sebel brand un­til now.

Both prop­er­ties have long tar­geted the Syd­ney cor­po­rate markets for out-of-town events, as well as in­ter­state and over­seas guests able to travel within 1-2 hours of the city.

“We are de­lighted to wel­come these two stun­ning ho­tels to the grow­ing IHG fam­ily,” said the group’s chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Aus­trala­sia Karin Shep­pard.

“Just a short drive from Syd­ney, both prop­er­ties of­fer world­class fa­cil­i­ties and an oa­sis of calm so­phis­ti­ca­tion,” she said.

The 105-room Crowne Plaza Hawkes­bury Val­ley is set among 8ha of gar­dens outside Wind­sor, with eight for­mal and five in­for­mal meet­ing rooms, two restau­rants and leisure fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing ten­nis courts, ad­ja­cent golf cour­ses and the Villa Thalgo Day Spa.

The 70-room Kirk­ton Park Hunter Val­ley has five meet­ing rooms and four break­out rooms, sit­u­ated on 28ha of rolling coun­try­side with moun­tain views near Cess­nock.
