Bannisters Hotels have expanded their portfolio by opening their new coastal boutique hotel, Bannisters Pavilion.
The new boutique hotel offers 32 stylish guest rooms and two luxurious penthouse suites, with a stunning backdrop of Eucalyptus trees. The hotel is set back from Mitchell Parade and Beach Road, steps away from Mollymook Beach which is famous for its natural beauty, surf breaks, and unspoilt coastline.
A highlight of Bannisters Pavilion is the expansive rooftop lined with sun beds, umbrellas, private lounge spaces, a bar-and-grill and spectacular suspended pool, providing the ideal coastal getaway.
The rooftop is designed to allow guests to seamlessly move between the pool, bar-and-grill and lounge areas to take full advantage of the food and beverage options, available from noon.
Food is inspired by Mediterranean, Southern Californian and Mexican cuisines, complemented by seasonal cocktails, craft beers and an Antipodean-focused wine list. The first menu is included below.
Bannisters Pavilion is a collaboration between owner Peter Cosgrove, architect Tony Freeman (Molnar Freeman), interior designers Mia Ward (Wiwa Design), Romy Alwill (Alwill Interiors) and landscape designer William Dangar. The hotel secured a grant from Destination NSW to help with the quality of the fitout, seeing copper lights in the Rooftop Bar area, larger bathrooms in all of the rooms and a stunning double height lobby area with contemporary furniture and fittings.
Situated just 100 metres from the beach, the design ethos focuses as much on the Eucalyptus trees as its stunning aqua backdrop.
“Design inspiration was drawn from the natural beauty of the area and represents accent colours from both forest-and-sea,” said Romy Alwill.
Bannisters Pavilion represents an extraordinary tourism project for Mollymook Beach and the NSW South Coast, a blossoming region only a three-hour drive from Sydney and two-and-a-half hours from Canberra.
