The much anticipated The Sebel Yarrawonga located in the picturesque Murray River region is set to open its doors to customers and guests on 1 November 2020, following the recent relaxation of restrictions for regional Victoria. The Sebel Yarrawonga is situated next to Black Bull 18 hole Championship Golf Course, highly regarded as the number one golf course on the Murray River and ranked 68 in the top 100 courses in Australia by Golfers Digest. Notably it was also the last golf course designed and completed by the late Peter Thomson - one of Australia's most revered golfing legends.
“We can't wait to welcome our first customers and guests through to experience The Sebel Yarrawonga – it has been a challenging year but we are finally ready to see the hotel buzzing with locals and regional travellers and eventually, guests from Melbourne and interstate,” says General Manager, Rebecca Russell.
Situated an hours' drive from Albury town centre, a three hour drive from Melbourne and five hours from Sydney, The Sebel Yarrawonga, will offer 63 stylishly appointed studios rooms and apartments, with a further 54 rooms expected in stage 2 of the development later in 2022/2023. It will initially open two of its three food and beverage venues – Stock & Barrel Bar and the casual Sunset Pool Bar. Their fine dining restaurant Elizabeth’s opens it’s doors in December too.
Simon McGrath AM, Chief Executive Officer for Accor Pacific, said: “We are excited to bring The Sebel brand to Victoria's Murray River region and are confident The Sebel Yarrawonga will deliver exceptional accommodation and an outstanding service experience for our valued guests. Trusted brands, like The Sebel, bring quality and credibility to the serviced apartments sector, which has been rapidly growing in popularity. We are expecting to see a boom in this area, particularly in the current climate, as serviced apartments limit unnecessary contact with other guests and offer a safe and secure way to travel”.
Melbourne based development company, Lotus Living, are behind the hotel development which is situated within the Silverwoods Golf and Lifestyle Resort – another Lotus Living development. Traveling with non-golfer guests? Rest assured there’s plenty of other activities on offer in the region. A standout favourite of ours is a visit to Lake Mulwala - a popular destination for water skiing in the Summer months. Plus, there’s variety of superb wineries in nearby Rutherglen to ‘research’ with friends too.
