Travellers to Moranbah and Middlemount have a new ‘home away from home’ alternative, with Oaks Hotels & Resorts opening two brand new properties this week.
The addition of the two 4.5 star hotels upsurges the chain’s portfolio to 44 properties, and highlights the demand for self-contained apartment-type accommodation in Queensland’s key mining regions.
Offering full kitchen and laundry facilities, the properties are suited to longer and shorter stays alike, and provide many two bedroom options in addition to the standard single room, making it ideal for family visits.
Oaks Moranbah is situated in close proximity to a shopping centre, a range of cafés and restaurants, along with parks and the Moranbah Golf Club – perfect for the practicalities, while ensuring easy access to a number of off-property leisure options.
Of course, the property is also close to a number of nearby mines, giving employers and travel arrangers incentive to book the newest hotel in town.
The chain reports that accommodation demand in the region is at an all-time high, with Virgin Australia launching direct Brisbane-Moranbah flights earlier in the year.
Further south, the Oaks Middlemount (pictured below) also features an onsite swimming pool and a BBQ area, while only a short drive from the Bundoora Dam – where travellers can indulge in a little fishing, boating, water-skiing and swimming in their free time.
To mark the opening, the chain is offering rates from $169 per night for a standard apartment, and $239 per night for a two bedroom.
