New-build 4.5 star Mercure hotel opens in Sydney’s Hills district

A new build 4.5-star Accor hotel has opened in in Sydney’s Hills District following a partnership with Lewis Land Group.

The Mercure Sydney Rouse Hill has opened in dining and entertainment hub The Fiddler hotel precinct.

Owned by the Lewis Land Group, the 19th century Rouse Hill pub underwent a major redevelopment in 2010 and has been transformed into an award-winning outdoor venue for casual dining and events.

“Sydney’s North West is booming and the opening of this new internationally-branded midscale hotel signifies Accor’s confidence in this burgeoning pocket of greater Sydney,” said Accor’s chief operating officer Pacific, Simon McGrath.

“By injecting new hotel supply, the area will positively benefit from the economic and tourism growth associated with the creation of new jobs and services.”

The 78-room hotel also features a fitness centre and swimming pool, new conferencing and events spaces. The dining venues will be provided to hotel guests through The Fiddler’s existing entertainment precinct for a wide choice of a la carte dining and beverage options.

Lewis Land Group CEO Chris Calvert said that this partnership was a natural fit for the group.

“Our vision to create exceptional communities in every market we operate is achieved with Mercure’s localised approach, ensuring we retain the heritage of our offer whilst tapping into new corporate and leisure markets,” said Calvert.
