Tamworth, a city in New South Wales, is known as the country music capital of Australia, playing host to the iconic annual music festival – Tamworth Country Music Festival. The city is also known for being a food and wine hub and for its exceptional natural beauty.
Bunch of travellers visit Tamworth each year and AccorHotels has launched a new project to provide luxurious accommodation for them. Australia’s largest hotel operator announced the opening of a new hotel in Tamworth. The newly built Mercure hotel will start its operations from December this year.
Located in the West Tamworth League Club on Phillip Street, the hotel is currently under development. The midscale hotel, which is likely to boost the city’s accommodation sector, will be within the Club’s precinct. The three-storey hotel will feature 52 rooms, a swimming pool, and a gym. The guests will also have access to the Club’s food and beverage outlets, stadium, entertainment venues, and gaming and conferencing facilities.
