NEWCASTLE Airport can now offer weary travellers a place to lay their heads after the Mercure Newcastle Airport opened on Friday.
It is expected the 95 room hotel will be used by passengers travelling through Newcastle Airport and onto further destinations, Lindsay Leeser of AccorHotels Pacific said.
The $15 million hotel features contemporary sound-proofed guest rooms, blackout blinds, and rooms which can sleep up to four people.
“[It] will service the well-connected gateway to the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and Central Coast regions,” Mr Leeser said.
CEO of Newcastle Airport Peter Cock said a hotel located at the airport was vital for the region’s development.
The ceremonial ribbon was cut by Mayor of Port Stephens Bruce MacKenzie and former Governor of NSW Rear Admiral Peter Ross Sinclair.
The hotel also features four purpose-built conference rooms, a modern gymnasium, restaurant, and bar.
