Melbourne Springs to Life – Here’s a Deal for Regional Visitors

Melbourne's famous Lygon Street (prior to COVID-19 restrictions)

The City of Melbourne has wasted no time revving up the city vibe post lock-down with their iconic buskers returning to the streets and laneways in the lead-up to Christmas and large-scale floral installations bringing life and colour to the CBD.

If you’re craving a fix of the ‘city life’ and keen to support struggling city businesses, attractions and restaurants, a Melbourne hotel is offering a special deal and can’t wait to welcome you back.

Best Western Travel Inn Bar & Restaurant.

The Best Western Plus Travel Inn Hotel in Carlton is offering an exclusive rate to Regional Victoria and New South Wales customers – $120 per night single/double/twin.  This rate will include car parking and fast WiFi* (Use code ‘Back to Melb’ – Rate is subject to availability)

Helen Williams, General Manager says her team has missed their ‘country visitors’ and they can’t wait to welcome them back.

“We know isolation has been difficult for everyone and our industry has not been immune. We know many people are looking forward to travelling domestically and staying a couple of nights away from home, so we’re looking ahead with positivity and hope our special offer for regional visitors will offer an added incentive to return to the city soon.”

The Best Western Plus Travel Inn Hotel has developed a strong relationship with our region, regularly offering sponsorships and donations to local sporting and community groups.

“We regularly donate accommodation vouchers to North East charities for fundraising, including Upper Murray Family Care,” Helen explained.

“We’ve also sponsored the Wodonga Football Club for the past 15 years and have a long association with Wodonga TAFE and Martin’s Travel Group in Albury where we proudly host group accommodation.”

Lygon Street’s famous eateries are also excited to welcome visitors back to their favourite eateries.

“It will be great to see iconic venues such as Carlton Wine Room, Copperwood, King & Godfree, Doc Espresso, Doc Pizza, Brunetti’s, Leonardos Pizza Palace, Da Guido, Tiamo to name a few, come to life with regional visitors again,” Helen said.
