Rebrand announced for Orange, NSW hotel

AccorHotels has announced that Templers Mill Hotel will rebrand to Mercure Orange and join its growing network of regional New South Wales hotels in August 2017, following the completion of a three year expansion plan and a $9 million transformation.

Owned by the Orange Ex-Services Club, the two-storey, 77 room midscale soon-to-be Mercure hotel is located within the club’s precinct. All guest rooms are in the final stages of being refitted.

Key to the Club’s expansion plan is the exciting addition of The Greenhouse of Orange, a unique destination dining concept showcasing regional food and wine from the Central West, also set to open in August. As an integrated part of the Orange Ex-Services Club Precinct.

Chief operating officer, AccorHotels Pacific, Simon McGrath said: “We’re delighted to bring the Mercure brand to Orange in partnership with Orange Ex-Services Club. Orange’s growing mining, agricultural and wine industries are set to benefit from the hotel’s newly upgraded accommodation facilities as well as the exciting addition of The Greenhouse of Orange dining concept.

“We enjoy partnering with Clubs who have strong local ties to the community as it adds to the overall guest experience. We look forward to helping drive tourism to this beautiful part of regional New South Wales and we are excited to be welcoming guests to Mercure Orange in August,” concluded McGrath.

Chief executive officer, Orange Ex-Services Club, Cameron Provost, said: “It’s exciting to see our three year expansion plans for the Club and hotel precinct finally come to fruition. We are delighted to entrust AccorHotels with our refurbished hotel and know this partnership will ensure the success of this new venture. 

“The Club has been a part of Orange for over 60 years and consists of over 15,000 club members who will no doubt enjoy the upgraded Mercure Orange’s hotel facilities and the addition of The Greenhouse of Orange,” concluded Provost.
