An iconic destination in Warwick Farm with racing history and rural soul

We have recently had the pleasure of discovering the William Inglis MGallery By Sofitel situated on Governor Macqurie Drive, 40 minute drive south of Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport.

Have you ever had the feeling of being wrapped within a relaxed and well-being environment straight after entering a place? This is exactly what I felt when I arrived at the William Inglis Hotel. The wood panels on the walls give a cosy atmosphere; the decoration is in tune with the M Gallery brand proposition right through to the interior perfume being delicate.

This is a warm and inviting establishment with 144 unique and individually designed bedrooms and suites. The attention to detail is of high standard and totally in line with the M Gallery venues signature brand.

Steeped in history, facilities are modern and elegant. Numerous venues offer a large range of possibilities from small meetings to large expo’s and banquets. The Arena is a versatile space able to cater up to 1000 delegates in theatre style or 600 delegates for a seated dinner.
Nine Gallery Suites provide a more intimate atmosphere for your breakout sessions and have direct view onto the Arena.
The Big Barn is a beautiful and smart alternative for a 220 guest dinner.
The stables are a great opportunity to make your conference unique and unforgettable thanks to the ability to host an exhibition of up to 162 3×3 meter exhibition booths undercover.

The establishment offers facilities for the horse industry that can be used for events, giving, at the same time, a very authentic and unique setting.

My stay there was a real pleasure. I would recommend this to our client to take a look at for future events.

A hotel with style in the heart of the city

We were recently lucky enough to be invited to a Lunar New Year themed evening at the newly refurbished Vibe Hotel Sydney The hotel is surrounded by numerous restaurants and iconic places and is only 100m from the SMC Conference and Function Centre, making it an ideal accommodation venue when conferencing at the SMC.

The refurbishment itself is amazing. The old colour scheme has been replaced by a fresh new contemporary feel with rich blues and natural timbers throughout the hotel.

If you just want to stay back and relax, the roof top pool and the Storehouse Restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel are great options. Shahnaz, the Director of Sales, showed us a selection of  guest rooms in the hotel. We were impressed by the size and the renovation in those rooms. They are larger than average hotel rooms and even include a state of the art coffee pod machine in each room.

The highlight of the night was watching the lion dance performance up close. Three lions jumped and lifted to the rhythm of loud drum beats and clashing gongs. This ceremony brings good luck and good fortune in Chinese culture.

We would like to thank Vibe Hotel Sydney for their hospitality and wish TFE Hotels a prosperous year ahead.

Doltone House La Dolce Vita Dinner

50 lucky guests from the industry were invited to sample Doltone House’s hospitality at the La Dolce Vita Dinner at their Hyde Park venue this week.

Manhattan Room Doltone House

On arrival, we were escorted into the Manhattan Room for the first of many experiences for the night – a wine and cheese tasting event hosted by Claudia Bowman, matching three wines with three canapés.

Onto the stunning setting of the Ballroom where we were treated to a three-course seated dinner starting with a magnificent Italian antipasto platter and spaghetti Aglio e Olio. The main was a Tomahawk steak platter with sides of roasted chat potatoes, carrots, green beans with fried capers and rocket and parmesan cheese salad.

To end the evening a tuille reveal opened to showcase a beautifully presented dessert station and gelato cart. A perfect way to finish a very memorable night.

Wonderful food, wine, venue and theming, teamed with excellent hosts. A perfect venue for conference dinners.
