Mantra Group News



Peppers Docklands has opened its doors this week, heralding the arrival of the Peppers name in the Melbourne CBD. The opening reflects the continued expansion and evolution of one of Australia’s most trusted hotel brands, which today delivers contemporary, stylish accommodation for leisure and business travellers alike.

“Peppers Docklands is an unparalleled offering within the Docklands precinct, and – in response to demand from our loyal guests - represents a continuation of Mantra Group’s strategic direction to grow the Peppers brand in CBD locations.” said Kent Davidson, Executive Director – Sales, Marketing & Distribution.

The only 5-star hotel within the Dockland’s precinct, the hotel features direct access to the Etihad Stadium concourse. General Manager, Jeremy Nordkamp, believes this is what will differentiate Peppers Docklands from other CBD located properties.

“Peppers Docklands is located right on the concourse, giving our guests convenient access to the wide range of events staged at Etihad stadium throughout the year,” he said.

Named the number one new hotel opening for 2016 by Traveller.com.au, the five star, 87-room hotel is part of Capital Alliance Investment Group’s $100 million M Docklands development.  The contemporary accommodation is defined by bespoke bathrooms and cutting edge interior design, with hotel facilities including the stylish MOMAMI restaurant and bar, pool, gym, 24-hour reception and concierge, plus a trendy retail and eatery enclave at ground level.

Redefining the rich heritage of the brand, Peppers Docklands joins the growing portfolio of designer Peppers branded city hotels, which includes properties in Adelaide, Canberra, and the Gold Coast.  Elsewhere, construction is well progressed on Peppers Kings Square (due to open in Perth in August 2016) and plans are afoot for other Peppers city hotels in Brisbane and Sydney.
