Best Western Adds New Properties in Western Australia & Adelaide
Best Western Australasia (BWA) has welcomed two new properties to its national network - the Best Western Plus Hotel Lord Forrest in Bunbury, Western Australia, and the Best Western Granada Motor Inn, Adelaide.
BW Plus Hotel Lord Forrest is the third Western Australian property to sign with BWA in recent months and the global accommodation group now has 13 properties in the state.
Spencer Watson, Acting CEO of BWA, said BW Plus Hotel Lord Forrest gave Best Western customers an excellent option just two hours south of Perth.
"Bunbury's a thriving coastal town, close to some of Western Australia's best beaches and wineries - BW Plus Hotel Lord Forrest is in a fantastic location with a strong leisure and corporate business base."
Owner Leanne Beamish said Best Western's global marketing reach and strong loyalty program were a key factor in joining the network.
She added that the Lord Forrest is in the final stages of a $4 million revamp.
"It's the biggest renovation we've ever done - the new rooms look amazing and the guest reaction has been extremely positive," she said.
Meanwhile, Best Western once again has a property in Adelaide.
The Best Western Granada Motor Inn is conveniently located in Glenunga, within easy reach of the CBD, Adelaide Hills and bayside Glenelg.
It has 56 rooms and there's a popular Mexican restaurant on site.
As is the case at all Best Western properties, BW Granada Motor Inn offers free high-speed internet, healthy breakfasts and the ability to earn or redeem Best Western loyalty points that never expire.
