Event Hospitality and Entertainment has signed an agreement to link The Hermitage Hotel’s management team into the broader EVENT Hotels Network.
As per the agreement, The Hermitage Hotel will be distributed through the Rydges website. However, it will maintain its brand name and continue to run operations such as sales and marketing.
“As a stand-alone hotel in a very remote location, we have recognised the potential to have the support of a larger, multi-property brand. EVENT Hotels has impressed us. Their team of dedicated and experienced people know how to tailor their approach to the specific needs of each hotel within their network,” Sir John Davies, chairman of Aoraki Cook Alpine Village Ltd, owners of the hotel, said.
The partnership will give The Hermitage Hotel management the opportunity to work across the EVENT Hotels in New Zealand, and vice versa for the Mount Cook staff.
The deal is effective immediately.
