NEW 32-ROOM HOTEL HUGE SHOT IN THE ARM FOR ARMIDALE REGION TOURISM

Wednesday, 17 October 2018

NORTHERN Tablelands MP and the State’s Tourism and Major Events Minister Adam Marshall today welcomed planning approval by Armidale Regional Council for a new $7 million, 32-room motel adjacent to the Armidale SerVies Club.

“This will be the first new motel constructed in Armidale for two decades and will be a huge boost to accommodation and Armidale’s ability to attract and successfully host more conferences and major events,” Mr Marshall said.

“I congratulate Scott Sullivan, his staff and the board of the Armidale SerVies Club for pursuing this proposal and council for supporting the project – it will do much to further push the cities credentials as a tourist destination and hub for regional major events.

Mr Marshall said during peak times of the year, Armidale had too few accommodation options and capacity, which this new development will help address.

“More rooms in the city equals more people staying overnight and spending their money locally, rather than it being spent out of our region,” he said.

“This investment is a very positive sign for the Armidale region and will spur on more development and opportunities for everyone locally.

“With the redeveloped hospital, TAFE Digital, a brand new high school, airport, business park, APVMA relocation and now this new motel, the future is looking bright and exciting for Armidale.”
