You’ve heard from us before, about Rick Stein, Bannisters, Mollymook
NOW the news is: there is a $1 million refurbishment just completed at Bannisters, Mollymook on the NSW south coast ~ this much-loved coastal retreat unveils a great new beach-inspired look. To my design eye, it’s a bit patchwork and crafty, and I like it!
* In Rick Stein at Bannisters restaurant, a stunning new lobby area has been added, best described as coastal chic with Mediterranean accents. An entire wall of ceiling to floor handmade imported tiles from Istanbul, Turkey adds a colourful and very contemporary look to the restaurant entry with travertine floor tiles, designer lounge chairs, a glass atrium area with established trees, and suspended gas log fire with library shelving on either side.
* In the restaurant: new PetEs pendant lights made from recycled drink bottles in Mexico are quirky and colourful. Clean lines of new bespoke tables, new cutlery, new artwork, a renovated bar area, new air conditioning and new tongue and groove cladding in the restaurant – painted white in keeping with the beach location. White tablecloths are gone and more relaxed wait staff uniforms sees a less formal feel in the restaurant. The knock-out sea views remain as does Rick Stein’s distinctive award winning seafood menu.
* In the guest rooms, new bespoke imported furniture, artwork and soft furnishings complement the kitchenettes, beds and interior cladding installed last year.
The overall look is contemporary, beach-inspired and eclectic, ticking all the boxes for a great boutique hotel in a stunning oceanfront setting.
