Uncover the morning rituals of Australians and a brand new Holiday Inn Express in Newcastle


Breakfast skippers find a reason not to skip at the recently opened Holiday Inn Express Newcastle - where morning rituals are made simple and smart.

The results are in: We’re not getting the morning nourishment that sets up for a productive work day according to a national survey commissioned by IHG’s Holiday Inn Express. Almost half of Aussies are choosing to skip breakfast during the week, while a further quarter confess to skipping breakfast more than twice each week. The Holiday Inn Express has delivered the antidote to Australian’s breakfast woes by offering free breakfast with Grab and Go options for those of us with early morning meetings to get to.

Michelle Peterson, global vice president from Holiday Inn Express, IHG, said: “We’re committed to providing our guests with the best experience and support during their stays with us, whether it be for work, pleasure, or both. By undertaking this research, we hoped to uncover the ways we can help make the mornings of our guests more seamless, and thereby offer more of what matters most. That’s why each of our Holiday Inn Express hotels include a free breakfast offering, to help our guests get the best start to their day.”

For corporate travellers heading to Newcastle on business, there’s no reason to skip breakfast with the arrival of a brand-new Holiday Inn Express. The 170-room new-build hotel injects a burst of playful, smart travel to the harbour city of Newcastle – just 2 hours’ drive north of Sydney. Features include a full-range free breakfast offering, spacious accommodation and smart services including the ‘Great Room,’ which offers a multi-purpose venue for social drinks or functional space for business travellers.

The Holiday Inn Express brand has centred itself around offering simple, smart travel for guests. Free, fresh breakfast; free, fast WIFI, and multipurpose spaces designed with their guests in mind. Each hotel features the Express Essentials, including a choice of pillows and black-out blinds in the room to ensure optimal, restful sleep.
