Choice Hotels APAC welcomes two new properties

Leading hotel and international franchise group Choice Hotels Asia-Pac, has welcomed two new hotels to its extensive portfolio, increasing its footprint in South Australia, and across the Tasman in New Zealand.

Choice Hotels APAC welcomes two new propertiesIn South Australia, Comfort Inn The Lakes has joined the Choice Hotels network, and is located in the Mt Gambier region, just a 14 minute walk from the magical Blue Lake. This family owned and operated property boasts magnificent views over the town. Comfort Inn The Lakes offers modern and comfortable rooms, an indoor heated pool and spa, fitness facilities, ‘grab and go’ breakfast, and more.

In New Zealand, situated in Christchurch on the South Island, the Quality Suites Amore is rich in history and heritage. The property is located next door to the Riccarton Bush – an ancient, native forest that visitors and residents are welcome to wonder through and relish the tranquil grove of tall kahikatea trees. Quality Suites Amore boasts apartment style accommodation, offering an indoor pool, continental breakfast and parking for guests.

Trent Fraser, CEO of Choice Hotels Asia-Pac, said: “As we start to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis, it’s pleasing to see such overwhelming support and cooperation from both our new and existing franchisees.”

It’s undeniable that the hotel and travel industry has been dramatically impacted as a result of the pandemic, but as we begin to journey through to the other side of it, I am thrilled to welcome these new properties at such a critical time.


Hotels in our network are already seeing the benefits since travel restrictions have eased, so I have no doubt that these new properties will experience a similar, positive uptake across their business. We’re steadily on the road to recovery, and it’s more important now than ever for owners, particularly those who are operating as an independent, to consider the benefits of partnering with a brand. The resources available to them via marketing programs, and a well-established and global distribution footprint have shown their value in a time of crisis.”
