Central Queensland gets its first five-star hotel

Central Queensland is to get its first five-star hotel with the announcement of the start of construction on Peppers Gladstone, a collaboration between Accor and the Yaralla Sports Club.

Expected to open its doors to guests in mid-2024, Peppers Gladstone will share space with the 60-room Mantra Gladstone under one roof in a vertical, dual-branded hotel concept.

Peppers Gladstone, which will have 32 guest rooms, is the first new hotel construction in the region in over a decade.

Accor Pacific CEO Sarah Derry said: "We are thrilled to announce a Peppers hotel at one of Queensland's most captivating central coast towns.

"Peppers Gladstone will offer a unique and significant addition to our premium brand portfolio in Queensland. Its guest rooms, apartments and amenities will provide an elevated guest experience, particularly appealing to those seeking extra space and comfort for an extended stay.”

Yaralla Sports Club CEO, Will Schroeder, said: “Our team is excited to be working collaboratively with Accor to bring to life our five-star dream for Central Queensland.

"Peppers Gladstone, in conjunction with Mantra Gladstone, will offer two levels of accommodation under one roof, meaning there will be two fantastic options for visitors to enjoy our wonderful city.”

Designed by BSPN Architects and constructed by Mettle Projects, Peppers Gladstone will have rooms that aim to capture the essence of the surrounding landscapes - from the serene bush to the vibrant city, lush rainforests, and coastline.

Ranging from King Studio Rooms to Superior Two-Bedroom Apartments, all rooms will feature fully equipped kitchens, king-sized beds, large televisions with Chromecast capabilities, and a complimentary non-alcoholic mini-bar.

Guests can also take advantage of the hotel’s heated outdoor swimming pool, complimentary drinks at the pool deck bar (during select hours), exclusive access to Peppers’ eight-seater cinema room, a gym, secure undercover car parking, wifi, a choice of two onsite restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a member’s lounge.

Gladstone is situated on Queensland’s Capricorn Coast - a part of the Southern Great Barrier Reef region.

Peppers Gladstone will join a network of more than 20 Peppers retreats, resorts and CBD hotels across Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. 

Since acquiring Peppers in 2018, Accor has continued to grow the brand with four additional Peppers hotels opening across Australia in the past five years, including the Peppers Manly Beach, Peppers Marysville, Peppers The Hills Lodge, and Shadow Play Melbourne by Peppers.
