Gosford a go go with new international hotel

Gosford on the New South Wales Central Coast, is to get an international hotel as part of a new development project.

IHG Hotels & Resorts today announced the signing of the seventh voco hotel in Australasia, partnering with leading Sydney developer ALAND to open voco Gosford (render, above) in early 2025.

The new voco Gosford will form part of Archibald by ALAND, a mixed-use development precinct overlooking Brisbane Water.

Named after Archibald Acheson, the second Earl of Gosford, the development will cover 5,656sqm and will include 320 residential apartments, the 130-room lifestyle hotel, a portfolio of hospitality venues and an outdoor pool with swim-up bar.

The hotel will feature guest rooms of up to 41sqm and executive suites of up to 54sqm.

Guests will enjoy views over the Central Coast, a street level pub and pizzeria, a rooftop sky bar and lounge on level 28, a signature restaurant under celebrity chef Dany Karam (former executive chef at Black Bar and Grill in Pyrmont), a wellness centre and conference and events facilities.

Marking IHG’s continued expansion into regional Australia, the hotel will be the second voco in regional NSW.

“This is an incredibly exciting development, and we are delighted to be part of a project that will transform the city of Gosford into a new lifestyle destination," said Cameron Burke, IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Director of Development for Australasia & Pacific.

"I have no doubt the addition of voco to the city will help drive tourism across the region, and the adjacent hospitality amenity is sure to be a popular driver of patronage."

Andrew Hrsto, ALAND founder and director said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with IHG on this once-in-a-generation development in Gosford - one that will enliven the CBD and take this attractive regional city to the next level."

IHG is currently enjoying its largest ever period of growth in Australasia, with a significant number of new openings under its InterContinental, Kimpton, voco, Crowne Plaza and Hotel Indigo brands.
