The $ 80 million development of the Anchorage Hotel has stalled for the past two years and is now under the planning authority of the state government.
But that hasn’t stopped Anchorage owner / developer Victor Harbor Greg Phillips from making some big decisions. .
South Australia-based hotel management specialist 1834 Hotels has confirmed they are the new operator of the heritage-listed Anchorage Hotel.
Currently managing a range of premier hotels, sites and resorts across Australia, this represents a welcome return to Victor Harbor for 1834 Hotels, which was previously responsible for the McCracken Country Club.
In association, 1834 Hotels has hired the Henry Mold hotel identity as the new General Manager of Anchorage Victor Harbor.
Mr. Mold returns to Victor Harbor, having also managed other notable hotels in the city.
Mr Phillips will develop a new 4.5-star hotel on the adjacent site, which will open in 2024 as a Wyndham hotel, comprising 100 rooms, 27 apartments, two restaurants and an array of other facilities.
Original ownership is an integral part of that long-term vision and Mr. Phillips focused his immediate attention on revitalizing the existing bistro and heritage accommodation in Anchorage Victor Harbor, for which he made the decision to hire 1834 Hotels.
âAnchorage Victor Harbor is an integral part of this city’s DNA and I am committed to ensuring it maintains its status as the destination’s iconic beachfront hotel. On this basis, I am very pleased to have hired an experienced operator of caliber 1834 Hotels to oversee operations and I am also delighted with the appointment of Henry Mold as Managing Director, âsaid Mr. Phillips.
“This new management team is fully attentive to the needs and potential of this destination and the tourism industry as a whole, and I look forward to seeing what can be achieved together in the future.”
Built in 1905, the heritage-listed Anchorage Victor Harbor is the last original guesthouse in the Victor Harbor area. Over the years the property has been carefully renovated to meet the demands of today’s guests, offering 23 rooms, ranging from traditional accommodations to private spa rooms with four poster beds. Guests and visitors alike can enjoy an attractive bistro and bar, with menus offering a mix of traditional and contemporary dishes.
