The Queen Victoria Hotel in Enmore, Sydney, was purchased by Merivale. The Merivale Group now controls more than 50 bars, hotels and restaurants across Sydney.
Since February last year, Merivale has added the Paddington Arms on Oxford Street, 50 King Street in Sydney’s CBD, and the Beach Palace Hotel, now the Coogee Pavilion, to its portfolio, with the first two due to relaunch in August and May respectively.
The dramatic expansion plans come in the wake of the loss of family patriarch John Hemmes in early March.
The Queen Victoria Hotel on Enmore Road near Newtown station is Merivale’s first hotel west of the CBD. The company will take possession in late April.
