Gladstone Welcomes a Mantra Hotel

Gladstone has today welcomed a Mantra hotel to a central business district location with the opening of Mantra Gladstone.

Formerly the Mercure Gladstone, this stylish and modern hotel has won a raft of awards, including the accommodation and resorts category of Gladstone’s Best in Business Awards for five consecutive years.

To strengthen the hotel’s position as Gladstone’s premier hotel, Mantra Gladstone has undergone a number of upgrades and enhancements as part of the rebrand, including transforming 33 of its 60 guestrooms into spacious open plan self-contained apartments - perfectly suited to holidaying couples and corporate travellers alike who are seeking greater space and self-contained amenities.

Mantra Gladstone is ideally located just minutes from the CBD and adjoins the Yaralla Sports Club. The hotel features arguably the best amenities, including fitness centre, food and beverage options and the soon to be opened swimming pool, in terms of choice and quality in the region.

Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath, said: “We’re excited to bring a Mantra to one of Queensland’s finest central coast towns. The new apartment-style rooms will broaden accommodation options for visitors to the area, providing comfort and convenience for guests and will hold huge appeal to those who are planning a longer length of stay.”

To celebrate the launch, Mantra Gladstone is offering overnight stays from $120* per night in a hotel room and from $135* per night in a refurbishment apartment room. To book, visit all.accor.com

Gladstone is situated on Queensland’s Capricorn Coast - a part of the Southern Great Barrier Reef region. Mantra Gladstone offers leisure guests a contemporary place to stay prior/post any tours and trips to the reef. The needs of the business travellers are also well-catered for with meeting rooms, room service, internet access, and a gym at the adjoining Yaralla Sports Club complex.

Mantra is Australia’s largest hotel brand with more than 75 properties across the country. Since the brand was born in 2007, Mantra has experienced a great journey of strategic growth. The brand has achieved considerable success in the Australian market and, while the Mantra brand has expanded internationally, its core market is, and will remain, domestic.

Since acquiring Mantra in 2018, Accor has continued to grow the brand with five new Australian hotels opening in the past two years, including the 146-room Mantra Albury Hotel, 214-room Mantra Epping Melbourne, 79-room Mantra Mackay, 41-room Mantra Melbourne Melton, and 50-room Mantra Traralgon.
