The History Of Peppers

In 1984, the Peppers brand was conceived when Mike and Suzi O'Connor opened Peppers Guest House in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Their vision was to create a contemporary style guesthouse offering relaxation in luxury surrounds. It proved an instant success.

Capitalising on this success, in 1991 Peppers opened its second property, Peppers Convent, also in the Hunter Valley NSW. The property was a joint venture between Peppers, James Fairfax and restaurateurs, Robert and Sally Molines.

In 1993 Peppers continued to acquire properties however decided to separate its property ownership vehicle from its hotel management company ultimately enabling exciting growth into new markets in 1994. Peppers Seaport Hotel in Launceston, Tasmania joined the group in April 2004, as Peppers' first Tasmanian property and heralded the renaming of the group to Peppers Retreats, Resorts & Hotels. Growth continued & in late 2004 Peppers added its first international property, Peppers on the Point, located three hours south of Auckland in New Zealand on Lake Rotorua.

Today you will find the Peppers collection of Retreats, Resorts & Hotels in extraordinary places throughout Australia, New Zealand & Asia Pacific. Peppers destinations are set among rainforests, vineyards, on cattle stations, mountain ranges, golf courses, cities, beaches and tropical islands, each property boasting its own individual charm and character.
