Peppers Waymouth team

Peppers now has its first hotel in Adelaide, offering leisure and business travellers alike a sophisticated and convenient hotel option in the heart of the festival city.

Officially rebranding this week as Peppers Waymouth Hotel from the former Rendezvous Hotel, it offers 202 five-star hotel rooms and suites, situated amongst Adelaide’s key sites including the Adelaide Convention Centre, Casino, Rundle Mall and the cultural boulevard of North Terrace.

Centrally located on Waymouth Street the hotel has two food and beverage outlets, The Cafe and Lounge 55; a heated indoor lap pool, spa, sauna, and fitness centre.

For meetings, events and private functions the 120 square metre conference room caters for up to 150 guests (cocktail) and can be divided into two smaller rooms.

As the premium brand in the Mantra Group stable, Peppers ensures a high standard is maintained for its guests and will undertake ongoing upgrades to rooms and public areas over the next 12 months.

“Peppers Waymouth is an exceptional hotel offering, and a continuation of Mantra Group’s strategy to grow the Peppers brand in CBD locations. We are pleased to the Peppers brand in Adelaide to cater to a balance of both leisure and business travellers,” said Mantra Group CEO, Bob East.


The hotel is expected to be a popular choice during Adelaide’s events and festival season which contribute $62.9 million to the South Australian economy. Enhancements to the Adelaide Convention Centre are predicted to attract large international conferences and Adelaide Oval is set to entice year round AFL and cricket supporters with its recent multi-million dollar upgrades. Cruise ships are another growing market for Adelaide with the number of visiting ships increasing to 36 to date in 2014/15, up from 29 in 2013/14.

Peppers Waymouth Hotel joins two Mantra and two BreakFree hotels in Adelaide to bring the total number of Mantra Group hotels to five in Adelaide CBD.

It also joins Peppers Gallery Hotel Canberra and Peppers Seaport Launceston in the existing Peppers CBD portfolio, with new build Peppers properties set for completion in Docklands Melbourne and Kings Square Perth in 2016.
