In Australia, Merivale has expanded its Sydney venues, with three new hotels set to open by February 2016.
The new hotels are The Paddington (formerly The Paddington Arms); Newport Arms, purchased from Bayfields Hotel Group in March this year; and Queen Victoria Hotel. The purchase of the Queen Victoria Hotel is Merivale’s first foray into Sydney’s Inner West.
The Queen Victoria Hotel will be re-launched in January 2016 and the first stage of renovations at Newport Arms will be revealed in January/February. The Paddington is set to launch next month, with a revamped kitchen where the focus will be on roasting, and a new cocktail bar.
