ONE of our sources has had an intriguing recent communication with the management of Canberra’s historic Brassey Hotel.
Thank you for your recent inquiry in regards to holding your proposed event at The Brassey of Canberra (est. 1927)
Further to your recent request, I regrettably have to advise that unfortunately the hotel has just been sold to Doma Group in which the handover is scheduled to take place on the 30th June 2015 at 12 noon. Therefore I have been instructed that all tentative bookings are to be released & confirmed events to be relocated due to the venue closing for renovations in which an estimated time frame for the renovations to be conducted have not yet been provided.
Our sincerest apologies for any inconveniences this may have caused, if you should still require further marketing information & details please feel free to contact the Martina Males in Marketing at Hotel Realm on 02 6163 1800 as they may be able to be of further assistance.
Completed in 1927 the Brassey was a guest house for Members of Parliament and government officials until it was sold in 1987 and relaunched as a hotel.
This purchase gives the Doma Group a very large slice of the Barton hotel pie.
