Adding to Ovolo's growing Australian portfolio, the hotel company has revealed its next new location. Come 2020, a six-storey site will open in South Melbourne — the first that the brand will manage, but won't own.

Due to be built at 183-199 Moray Street, the$50 million South Melbourne hotel will bring 100 rooms to a mixed-use precinct that's being developed by Perri Projects. If you're already planning a staycation, you can expect the usual Ovolo flourishes. That includes a distinctive interior design scheme tailor-made for the location.

At its other Aussie hotels — such as Ovolo Laneways in Little Bourke Street in the CBD — the company offers a heap of freebies, such as a free mini-bar with every room (including a lolly bag full of treats), free breakfast with every stay, free wi-fi, free laundry and free happy hour drinks each day. Here's hoping that they're all part of the South Melbourne spread as well.

Construction is due to start in the second half of 2019, with the hotel also set to feature bars, restaurants, and a rooftop function and events space.

The news caps off a big 2018 for Ovolo, with its two Brisbane sites in Spring Hill and Fortitude Valley opening this year.

Find Ovolo South Melbourne at 183-199 Moray Street, South Melbourne from a yet-to-be-revealed date in 2020.
