As an Official Accommodation Provider of Surfest 2022, Holiday Inn Express Newcastle is providing accommodation to Surfest participants and organisers and in celebration of the partnership, the hotel is showcasing a surfboard gifted to Surfest founder Warren Smith from world champion surfer Mark Richards in the hotel’s bar during the festival. 

According to Holiday Inn Express Newcastle Hotel Manager, Rob Fahey, the partnership cements the hotel’s commitment to the local region.

“We’re proud of our hotel’s position in the heart of Newcastle and are committed to supporting local events that highlight the incredible array of activities available right on our doorstep,” Mr Fahey said.

“Supporting such a world renowned event as Surfest is an obvious choice for us because it allows us to highlight what a huge part surfing plays in the identity of Newcastle while also demonstrating our dedication to the local community,” he said. 

Surfest is a free surfing event that takes place at Merewether Beach from 28 March to 3 April and features over 800 male and female surfers competing from the Asia-Pacific region.

Boasting 170 well appointed guest rooms, Holiday Inn Express Newcastle provides the perfect base for smart, savvy travellers with an ideal location in the up-and-coming western end of Newcastle city close to the CBD, Honeysuckle dining precinct and Newcastle Beach.

To celebrate the Surfest partnership, Holiday Inn Express Newcastle is offering rooms starting from $155 per room per night including an Express Start Breakfast during Surfest, from 31 March to 4 April 2022.
