Ovolo snaps up new hotel in Brisbane

Ovolo Hotels has officially expanded its reach to the Brisbane market with the purchase of the New Inchcolm Hotel & Suites (pictured above).

Ovolo Group’s new Brisbane shows its confidence in the Brisbane market, following market research firm fDi Intelligence naming it “one of the top five best cities in the world for global investment”.

Located in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, The New Inchcolm Hotel & Suites is a heritage listed, 50-room property that carries an average room size of 35 square meters- one of the largest in Brisbane.

With the inclusion of a 100-plus-capacity conference & events space the versatile hotel is designed to suit both business and leisure travellers.

The property will commence operation as an Ovolo hotel in late 2017. Mr. Girish Jhunjhnuwala, CEO & Chairman of the Ovolo Group said, “I’m excited to bring Ovolo Hotels approach to all-inclusive hospitality to the Brisbane market.

“The New Inchcolm has already achieved impressive heights. But if Ovolo Hotels track record bears any insight, the Inchcolm’s greatest days are yet to come.”

Facilitated by JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group Vice President, Tom Gibson and Executive Vice President, Peter Harper, this addition of a Brisbane based property marks Ovolo group’s continued expansion within the ANZ region.

While the Inchcolm is a confirmed 5-star hotel, it’s been confirmed there are plans for an ‘Ovolo’ makeover, aligning the Brisbane hotel with the brand’s contemporary approach to both design and all-inclusive hospitality.
