Accor has announced Novotel will operate the hotel component of Fragrance Group's NV Apartments and Hotel development, which will partially open later this month.

The hotel, named Novotel Perth Murray Street, will be the second developed by Fragrance Group and operated by an Accor brand, after the Ibis Styles Hobart in Tasmania.

Though the hotel will feature 431 rooms, only 40 will be opened on December 19, with the intention the hotel will be fully operational in April 2020.

During that time, many of its amenities, including its pool, meeting and conference rooms and accompanying restaurants and bars, will be inaccessible to guests.

Guests will, however, be granted access to four other Accor-operated hotels, including The Adnate’s Hyde Kitchen, Peppers Kings Square Hotel, Mantra on Murray Perth and Ibis Perth’s Rubix Bar.

Singapore-based developer Fragrance Group owns properties across Asia, Australia and Europe and is listed on the Singapore Exchange, spent around $200 million on the site, according to BNiQ.

The development will be the third Novotel operated hotel in Western Australia, on top of the Novotel Perth Langley, which has 256 rooms, and Novotel Vines Resort & Country Club Swan Valley, which has 157 rooms.

Accor itself operates 13 hotels and around 2,500 rooms in Perth's CBD.

Fragrance Group chief executive James Koh said the hotel was strategically located in the heart of the CBD, and he believed it would serve business travellers and tourists alike.

“We at Fragrance are equally excited to deliver Novotel Perth Murray Street, which will be a fresh addition to the already vibrant city and we look forward to providing bigger and better quality hotels across key cities in Australia for the ever increasing number of visitors to the country,” he said.

Accor chief operating officer Simon McGrath said he was confident in the growth of international tourism in Perth, and that the Novotel Perth would help to bring new international visitors to Perth.

“With new Qantas routes between Perth and London, new connections between Tokyo and test flights to Shanghai, the future is looking bright,” he said.
