Pendulum Communications Launch of Boutique 5-star hotel The William Inglis Hotel
Boutique 5-star hotel The William Inglis Hotel, MGallery by Sofitel held its much anticipated launch event on Wednesday 31 Jan, treating 100 VIP guests and media to an overnight stay in the pinnacle of luxury with its world-class accommodation, hospitality and leisure facilities, and sweeping views of the Warwick Farm racecourse and Liverpool’s riverscape.
Developed by thoroughbred horse sales company William Inglis & Son Ltd, the hotel is part of a $140m precinct called Riverside Stables and is the first MGallery by Sofitel to open in Western Sydney.
Guests were driven by executive transfers to the hotel in the early afternoon and led on a private tour of the expansive grounds. As dusk fell they ascended to The Chiltern Pool Deck & Bar, where its cabanas and sun loungers overlook 300 acres of greenery, for cocktails, Champagne and canapés.
Following the last light of sunset and a welcome speech from Inglis MD Mark Webster, guests were led down the eight levels to the beautiful Big Barn nestled amongst the Riverside Stables garden for a rustic, long-table dinner.
After the main course, the evening was concluded in the elegant, old-fashioned whiskey bar 1867 Lounge, and guests were then able to end their night in one of the hotel’s 144 luxury rooms, each with its own unique theme and link to a champion racehorse to celebrate Inglis’ racing and thoroughbred history.
