The William Inglis Hotel, MGallery by Sofitel celebrates its opening
Developed by thoroughbred horse sales company William Inglis & Son, the hotel is part of a $140 million precinct called Riverside Stables and is the first MGallery by Sofitel to open in Western Sydney.
Guests were led on a private tour of the expansive grounds before ascending to The Chiltern Pool Deck & Bar, where its cabanas and sun loungers overlook 300 acres of greenery. Nestled amongst the Riverside Stables garden, the Big Barn was the seeing for a rustic, long-table dinner featuring a signature paddock-to-plate menu of local lamb two-ways with pumpkin, heirloom carrots and mint jus, and grilled Atlantic salmon.
The night capped off at old-fashioned whiskey bar 1867 Lounge for local cheeses, petits fours and a tasting of rare whiskies and boutique wines.
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.
Adjacent to Warwick Farm racecourse, the hotel also has an extensive range of conferencing facilities, including the sales arena which can cater up to 1000 guests.
