“The Holiday Inn brand has undergone a huge, global transformation over the last 18 months, unveiling a level of next-generation design which is making leisure and business travellers take note, fast tracking the brands growth across the region,” said Jael Fischer, IHG’s director of development for Australasia & Pacific.

“This will be our fifth hotel with the Pelligra Group and we are honoured to be working with the team again to bring this completely refurbished Holiday Inn to the Dandenong community and build on our network in Victoria.”
