New Sebel in Manukau

The new Sebel Hotel being built in Lakewood Court, Manukau is a welcome addition to the area, according to MP for Papakura Judith Collins.

Collins says hotels benefit local residents by providing job opportunities and ore potential customers for conference centres, retail shops and restaurants. Tourism is now a $14.5 billion export earner for New Zealand, with 188,000 people working in the industry.

‘Visitors are incredibly important to our economy and a quality hotel facility near Auckland Airport and south Auckland’s many attractions in Manukau and beyond will ensure south Auckland gets its share of income from them,’ Collins says.

Currently under construction, the 4.5 star apartment-style hotel will have 152 rooms over six floors and house a café/restaurant, conference space, gymnasium and car parking.

The Sebel Auckland Manukau joins the AccorHotels network following the signing of an agreement with Rayland Enterprises, developers of the hotel.

“This is a strategic and exciting new development for Auckland, and we are delighted to be partnering with Rayland Enterprises to provide high quality, international standard accommodation for south Auckland,” says Simon McGrath, chief operating officer, AccorHotels Pacific. The hotel is expected to open later this year.
