Peppers Waymouth Hotel celebrated its grand opening this week. Formerly the Rendezvous Hotel, the property rebranded under Peppers last month and with it brought the brand’s history of celebrating fine food and wine.
“We are looking forward to a long and happy partnership with all things gourmet and see the hotel becoming involved in the local food and wine related events and festivals on the tourism calendar,” said Peppers general manager, Victor Faisca.
“Likewise it is our aim to see our restaurant come alive with food and wine tasting events; guest chef evenings; and wine challenges that we affectionately call ‘Wine Wars’ at Peppers, which sees rival winemakers compete for the audience preference. A lot of fun and what is sure to be a great celebration of one of South Australia’s greatest assets.”
Enhancements to the Adelaide Convention Centre are predicted to attract large international conferences and Adelaide Oval is set to entice year round AFL and cricket supporters with its recent multi-million dollar upgrades. Cruise ships are another growing market for Adelaide with the number of visiting ships increasing to 36 to date in 2014/15, up from 29 in 2013/14.
South Australian Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said: “Peppers is a welcome addition to the Adelaide hotel scene. With more airlines announcing increased flights into Adelaide and international and domestic tourism markets strengthening, the city is in continual need of quality international hotel brands to help showcase its unique attractions.”
