Atura, Rydges and QT Hotels have a flash sale from 5 to 7 February. Discounts vary markedly.

One I came across is Rydges Sydney Central (a few years ago it was operated by another entity under a different name) 'from A$119.' I've stayed and would give it 3.5 stars, with nothing much to criticise and close to Central Station (and the new light rail line.)

QT Sydney is 'from A$300': very upmarket, trendy and well regarded if online reviews are anything to go by.

Given the state of its economy, QT Perth at A$200 a night is cheaper, but it's also a recent addition to hotels in the West.

There are some good value rates in country cities: Albury's Atura, renovated in the last few years is from A$104. Gladstone in Queensland has an even cheapr offering from this group.

One wouldn't need to be perceptive to observe this sale, available for stays in February and most of March, is in response to 'coronavirus.'

These cheapest rates are available to members of its rewards program. Joining is free.

These owned (or operated) hotels are part of Event Hospitality, a publicly listed Australian company that used to be called Amalgamated Holdings and that is best known for its cinemas that operate in sizable numbers except in Victoria.

Rather than start a new thread, Rydges currently have a 72 hour flash sale.
Based on a booking I have just made, the prices are pretty sharp.

Rydges have their flash sale again.
1/2/3 days for not that much.
Book on the flash sale website, but make sure you redeem the voucher you paid for, following the link from the receipt they send to your email address, after you buy the voucher, do not book from the Rydges/Atura/QT website, other wise you pay full rate.
Atura and QT included.
$166 Atura Adelaide Airport, I paid only $120.

Pity it's not flexible as to location as well as date. If it was, I'ld buy a couple but can't be sure which hotel(s) i'm likely to stay at up to 12 months in advance.

Any takers for Rydges on Swanston?
OT, talking about Covid quarantine hotels,
Can I say it on here, its bad that they used hotels to house returnees for that Covid quarantine.
Using upper class hotels, ...
If Covid is so bad, why on earth do they keep spreading the chances of people getting it from past guests.
Ideal solution, I feel would have been to put them out in the desert somewhere, out the back of WoopWoop, to do the 14 days min quarantine for retunees.
Now, so many hotels are quarantine hotels, all over the country, I even have made a list, and its now at 20 all over Aust, but think I read somewhere that about 150 hotels country wide are "medi hotels" aka Covid19 quarantine facilities.
I guess the ibis budgets were too low grade to have been used as a Covid quarantine hotel.
There is no fixed list of which hotels are "it"

You are buying a pre paid voucher that can be used at most hotels on most dates depending on how far out you apply the voucher to the hotel you choose. Bookings can be cancelled and applied to other hotels or dates depending on availability.
 
Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.

Thanks for the clarification. When I first looked at this offer, I was taken to a page that required me to nominate which hotel I wanted to stay at; looking again now, that requirement is no longer there. As you say, the voucher should be able to be used at most hotels.

Unlike free night vouchers these can be booked and cancelled up to one day before. They don't count as a stay for earning status but I will have to email them again and ask if used in conjunction with a paid night the paid night still counts as a stay.
