Arcadia Resort & bistro closed till September
On Tuesday this week the management of Magnetic Island's Arcadia Hotel and Resort suddenly reverted to the lease holders, Queensland Trustees & Investment Ltd, who had sub-let the major Island backpacker accommodation house to Norpubs', Mr Paul Casey. QTI have now closed the resort with its bistro and kitchen for three weeks. The public bar and bottleshop however remains open.
Ms Elisabeth Hackett from QTI told Magnetic Times she couldn't comment on the relationship between Mr Casey and QTI but that, “The management agreement has ended and we are now back (on Magnetic Island) on a permanent basis,” she said adding, “I'm hoping we can come to some happy conclusion.”
Magnetic Times has not been able to contact Mr Casey for a comment but, according to Elisabeth Hackett, the three week period will see a major, “clean up and freshen-up”.
It is expected the Resort will reopen on September 1.
