The official launch of Peppers in Canberra took place this week with over 100 tourism industry, corporate and government clients attending a stylish cocktail event complete with entertainment from a Canberra Symphony Orchestra quartet.
Peppers Gallery Hotel Canberra marks the first capital city hotel for the much loved Australian brand and carries the auspicious title of being the 30th hotel in the brand’s 30 year anniversary of operation. Peppers is an award-winning 80 room boutique hotel with the renowned onsite Bicicletta Italian restaurant which catered the evening event. As the name suggests, the hotel boasts an elegant interior design showcasing an eclectic gallery of emerging and established artworks.
General Manager James Sharrock acknowledged the partnerships in place with the Arts community including the Canberra Symphony Orchestra and Canberra Theatre and acknowledged New Action as the city’s cultural hub.
Mantra Group Executive Direct Sales & Marketing, Kent Davidson said: “It is fitting that a hotel of this calibre should be the first to carry the Peppers brand in a CBD location and we are looking forward to seeing the Peppers brand in more urban centres.”
Hugely popular for business meetings, press events, photo shoots, sales presentations, conferences and social events, a number of unique venue options are on offer. The Smith Murdoch Room, named after the hotel’s architect; and the Ngunnawal Room, acknowledging the Indigenous people of the area, each offer a boardroom style capacity of 14 people or cocktail style for 36 people and include WiFi internet access. Larger scale functions for up to 100 people can be held in Bicicletta Restaurant or for up to 50 people in both the Library Bar or the unique outdoor Courtyard in the summer months.
Special guests included Visit Canberra Director, Ian Hill and Australian Red Cross Executive Director ACT, Wenda Donaldson, on hand to draw the raffle prizes with all proceeds from the night aiding local disadvantaged communities.
