Travellers flying in or out of Melbourne Airport are about to get more choice with the imminent opening of two new hotels.

Novotel (above) and ibis Styles Melbourne Airport hotels will open on July 1 and will be the first new-build hotels in the precinct in almost 20 years.

Owned by Melbourne Airport and operated by Accor, the hotels will food and beverageoptions, F&B offerings, a co-working space, Higher State - Melbourne’s first airport health and wellbeing club - and conference and event facilities.

The dual-branded Novotel and ibis Styles Melbourne Airport will offer travellers all the faciiities of a city hotel within easy walking distance of the terminals.

The $230 million hotel development has been designed by high-profile FK Architects with interiors by Woods Bagot.

There will be a total of 464 guest rooms split across Novotel (248 rooms) and ibis Styles (216 rooms) located within The Hive precinct.

F&B options will include Small Holdings Cafe, for coffee and pastries, Boccata Restaurant and Wine Bar for more substantial Italian fare and Amber State Taphouse & Kitchen, a modern gastro pub.

Guests at both properties will be able to use Higher State, which features an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, massage and fitness centre - perfect after a tiring flight.


“As the countdown begins to the launch of Novotel and ibis Styles Melbourne Airport, we're thrilled to be working with Melbourne Airport to deliver the first internationally branded hotels to open at the airport in more than 20 years," says Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer PM&E, Adrian Williams.

"Not only will the new-build hotels provide more choice for travellers seeking a place to stay, they will also offer a welcoming hub for the workers in the airport precinct."

Stuart Verrier, Melbourne Airport’s Head of Property Development and Asset Development, said “We’re excited to bring these new hotels to Melbourne Airport and give more choice to travellers and airport workers alike.

“Melbourne is now Australia’s largest city, and these hotels are essential for the growing number of people visiting our city, many of whom need a night before or after a long flight.

"But more than that, they also offer dining, wellness, conference and co-working facilities that provide a reason to come out to Melbourne Airport - even if you’re not flying.”
