Melbourne, Australia (PressExposure) October 13, 2009 -- Australia, October 13th 2009-- Australia's accommodation industry is affected by recession, all the industry leaders were badly beaten by the recession and recovery is not near according to some industry experts. Many are saying the market is already in the early stages of a rebound, but some are still unsure.
"We've gone past the bottom and are on the way up", said analyst Dean Dransfield.
"The bottom has been reached", declared David Perry chief executive of Melbourne's Hotel Windsor. Mr. McGrath said Accor had noticed definite signs of improvement during August. "We are down about 8.5 per cent for the year, which i think in the circumstances is pretty good."There's no doubt about it, there is positive movement."
Yann Duroselle, executive general manager of the Quality Hotel Batmans Hill on Collins, said the additional supply was having a big impact. He said the market was being driven by discounting from newcomers such Hilton Melbourne South Wharf, while inbound business had also been hit. However, Mr. Duroselle said he refuses to discount.
