While we can’t believe how fast time has gone by, we are excited to be celebrating our 16th birthday today. We are so grateful that our guests choose to share part of their lives with us and are continually amazed by the incredible people who pass through our doors each day. From family getaways and birthdays to weddings and anniversaries, many happy memories have been absorbed into The Maryborough walls.
Much has happened since our opening this day in 1997. We started off as Maryborough House Hotel with 57 bedrooms, Zings Restaurant, and no spa. But The Maryborough service and hospitality has been a part of our culture since day one.
Our goal has always been to innovate and improve our guest experience, so through the years, we’ve made quite a few changes. Most of it started in 2006 when our branding changed to The Maryborough Hotel & Spa. That year we expanded to become a 93-bedroom hotel, which included the addition of our 15 spa bedrooms. We opened The Maryborough Spa, comprising of the thermal suites, relaxation rooms, and 10 treatment rooms. We also became the first hotel in Ireland to receive the Optimus Award of Service Excellence. Needless to say, it was a busy year!
In 2009, our bedrooms underwent refurbishment. We received the Irish Beauty Profession Awards Spa of the Year and the Gold Green Failte award. And then we headed into another major renovation. In 2012, Zings went through redesign and development and reopened as Bellini’s Restaurant. The bar followed suite towards the end of 2013.
As the years have passed, and the buildings modified, our values have remained the same. You, our guest, are the most important part of our business. Our team strives each and every day to offer you impeccable, personalised hospitality to make you feel at home. We hope you visit soon.
As for the next 16 years, who knows what will come our way. We can only hope many, many more happy memories are made. And we can already guarantee there will be further changes to our building to enhance your experience at The Maryborough Hotel & Spa.
For now, we’re looking forward to celebrating our 17th Christmas at The Maryborough … stay tuned for details.
