Peppers opens up in the Yarra Valley foothills

First it was the Cumberland Guest House - destroyed after most of the town was destroyed in the Black Saturday bushfires of February 2009 - then it was rebuilt as Vibe Marysville and now it has been transformed into Peppers Marysville. 

The 101-room property, designed by architecture firm Metier3, was built from local timber and stone in 2015. 

Now Accor, the largest hotel operator in Australia, has opened its first hotel in Victoria's picturesque Yarra Valley with the opening of Peppers Marysville.

The property has five suites, a conference centre with five meeting and conferencing spaces catering for up to 350 guests, a restaurant and bar, gymnasium, tennis court, heated outdoor swimming pool, sauna, wellness centre and day spa.

“Peppers Marysville is a unique addition to our collection of hotels, resorts and apartments across Australia," said Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath. 

"It is fitting that one of Australia's finest examples of boutique accommodation is now associated with Peppers, a brand synonymous with providing bespoke hotel experiences to guests for over 35 years. 

"We're seeing strong visitor numbers at our regional properties, especially those located within easy driving distance of major cities, and we're forecasting greater growth with travellers now able to travel freely across all Australian states and territories and the introduction of the trans-Tasman bubble.”

The hotel has joined the Accor portfolio following its sale to new owners The Shakespeare Property Group.

Shakespeare Property Group CEO and managing director Yak Yong Quek, said: “We are delighted to partner with Accor on this premier regional tourism asset and we're confident it will operate with great success under Accor. Partnering Peppers with this property is a natural association. 

"We believe the Peppers brand perfectly captures the essence of this boutique hotel, which is a welcome addition to the established reputation the hotel already enjoys. Regional tourism is vital to the Australian economy and key to the sustainability and vibrancy of communities and we are proud to invest in it.”

Peppers Marysville is the fourth hotel that The Shakespeare Property Group has partnered with Accor on in Australia, following the Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort, Pullman Cairns International and Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort.

Located just 90 minutes from Melbourne and tucked away in the forested foothills of Victoria's Great Dividing Range, Marysville has long been a favourite getaway destination thanks to its tranquil riverside location, culinary delights, wonderful scenery and outdoor adventures.

Marysville is also minutes from Lake Mountain, a popular snow field. The new Peppers property joins a network of more than 20 Peppers retreats, resorts and CBD hotels across Australia and New Zealand. 

Opening rates starts from $219 per room per night. To book, call 03 5957 7777.
