Metro Hotel Ipswich International is hoping to capitalise on Ipswich’s growing reputation as the action capital of Queensland to increase its occupancy rate in 2011.
Located just 30 minutes drive from Brisbane and an hour from the Gold Coast, Ipswich is fast becoming the action hub of the region, with activities such as paintball, V8 car racing, ballooning and airboat riding among the many adrenalin-fuelled activities now on offer.
Metro Hotel Ipswich International General Manager Alex van Kersen said Ipswich had become the destination of choice for action-filled corporate team building experiences , as well as for families and couples seeking outdoor fun.
Mr van Kersen said Metro Hotel Ipswich International was hoping to benefit from the increasing attraction of these activities by offering great value accommodation packages, making it attractive for people to stay overnight in the area.
“Ipswich is a beautiful inland city with so much to see and do, it is a shame if people don’t stay at least 24 hours and explore what is on offer,” Mr van Kersen said. “While the drive back to the coast may seem short, it can be long following an action-packed day and staying the night makes the experience so much more relaxed and fulfilling.”
Most recently, Metro Hotel Ipswich International introduced the Paintball Package, which guarantees everyone a day to remember for only $100 per person (twin share). Each guest receives a night’s accommodation and breakfast, with free entry into the National Paintball Fields (NPF) and 100 paintball shots.
For the ultimate adrenalin junkie, the hotel offers a High Adrenalin Package for $454 per person which includes a night’s accommodation (twin share), paintball, an airboat ride at Savages Crossing, a two course dinner at the hotel’s signature Platform 9 Restaurant and a hot breakfast the next day. All transfers are included.
“The beauty of these packages is that you can go hard all day then come back to Metro Hotel Ipswich International, where you and your friends can relive the experience while enjoying the comfort of our facilities then wake up to a hearty breakfast,” Mr van Kersen said. “It is a complete experience not to be missed.”
