Invercargill’s new 4.5+ star hotel will bring more visitors into the South by offering a new option for upmarket accommodation.
The $40 million Langlands Hotel is the Invercargill Licensing Trust’s biggest project to date and board chairman Alan Dennis is pretty excited about it.
“I just think it’s time – it’s a good thing and a good thing for Invercargill that we have more than just holiday camps. Not that I have a thing against holiday camps,” he said.
Christchurch-based Leighs Construction is building the 3000m2 structure, with piling and foundation work started on the city centre hotel a year ago.
The steel frame was now finished and the project expected to be completed during the first few months of 2022.
One of the recent design adjustments included a top-floor bar on the seventh story, but Alan said the overall budget hadn’t changed that much.
“The hotel is on budget and the only increases are what is expected. With the build part of it there is nothing untoward, and there are no surprises.”
Other design features include eateries and bars at ground level connected by a covered laneway, as well as meeting and private dining spaces on the first floor.
Stage one of the construction would feature 80 guest rooms, with an additional 40 rooms added when there was demand.
“We’ve been at it for years now, and I just would like to see a stake in the ground and say, ‘here’s a nice new hotel,” he said.
