“During the redevelopment stage we basically changed and improved everything except for the sports bar – but even that will probably be redone at some stage. “We have a brand new game room, bistro and terrace bar (beer garden). “The hotel is modern and has a European, Italian style, with clean lines and Moroccan tiling.” The Paradise Hotel is part of the GM Hotel group, owned 24 | Hotel SA | www.ahasa.asn.au by Greg Maitland, and is part of 11 hotels across the State including the newly renovated Tower Hotel in Magill, The Republic, The Valley Inn and the Crown Inn. Even for decades before its overdue renovation, The Paradise Hotel has been a hotspot for family outings, sports viewing, drinking and classic pub meals. The new renovation has changed the look and layout, but the same excellent pricing, classic pub meals and family friendly feeling still remains.
“The Paradise now feels a lot more like a Bar / restaurant rather than a traditional pub,” Ms Seidel said. “We wanted to make it as family friendly as possible to reflect and welcome the demographic in the area.” The new and improved Paradise has something for everyone, with two children’s theatres to entertain the little ones, while live music is played Thursday to Sunday on the Terrace “It is a real family atmosphere,” Ms Seidel said. “We have one theatre for the really little kids and one for the older children so it accommodates for everyone’s needs for lunch or dinner. “We can even do children’s birthday parties now which is a bit different for a hotel.” To complement the hotel there is a large main bar with a wide selection of local beers and cocktails which serves the terrace, lounge and restaurant, while the relocated gaming room also has a separate bar. The original bar and gaming room have swapped places, resulting in the large open spaced front bar facing Lower North East Road, while the larger restaurant can comfortably seat 250 people. “For anyone who saw the hotel before it was redeveloped would know that it was a very run down,” Ms Seidel. “We relocated the gaming room for more privacy and now you wouldn’t even know it was there. “The New bar, Terrace and restaurant is much improved to now face the road. “It is an extremely big space which is much more welcoming and attractive.” interface Sysnet Back Office Exceed POS Zen Live Sales BooKBooK Restaurant Reservations integrate Call Us 1800 778 340 www.hlaustralia.com.au Just like a good steak red wine, ’s solutions the Paradise Hotel are a great match.
