TFE Hotels has announced the expansion of their Adina and Vibe Hotels brands with three hotels to open within the next 12 months.

TFE Hotels will open the Adina Apartment Hotel Pentridge Melbourne in the latter half of this year.  The 125 key MICE and Event hotel is part of a mixed-use lifestyle precinct being developed on the historic Pentridge Prison site.

“Although somewhat unconventional, the prison’s former chapel, with its beautiful lead-light windows and huge vaulted ceilings, has also been transformed into a function centre and will hold great appeal for MICE market looking for that one-of-a-kind experience,” said TFE Hotels group COO Chris Sedgwick.

The Adina Apartment Hotel Pentridge Melbourne is part of a mixed use development on the historic prison site.

“And it’s these unique heritage features throughout the property and clever F&B concepts that we are excited to take to market in the near future.”

South Australia will welcome its first Vibe Hotel, with the 123-room Vibe Hotel Adelaide to open in early 2023.

TFE Hotels director of development John Sutcliffe said the Flinders Street precinct is expected to act as a springboard for visitors wanting to experience the best of Adelaide’s CBD.

“The hotel’s design-focused style really reflects the vibrant, inner-city community that Guava Lime have created around it,” he said.

“There are fantastic restaurants, happening bars and music flooding the ground floor, with a restaurant planned for the top floors of the hotel.”

Fremantle will welcome its first Adina hotel in 2024.

In WA, the Adina Apartment Hotel Fremantle Perth is slated to open in late 2024.

The brand-new 142-room hotel will be the first in Fremantle and the third Adina Apartment Hotel in Greater Perth.

“With the Fremantle Docks about to undergo a Barangaroo-style refresh, this is a really exciting and strategic location for TFE,” said Sutcliffe.

“Conference guests will be well served as will cruise ship passengers when the nearby International Cruise terminal is completed.”

“A rooftop pool, lobby bar and café, gym and light and airy meeting and events spaces complete the offering.”
