The Merrywell’s Steak Sandwich was crowned Western Australia’s best at yesterday’s AHA Hospitality Expo.

Show Details

The Merrywell Head Chef Ryan Ebbs battled it out for the 2015 ‘WA’s Best Steak Sandwich’ title alongside four other metropolitan finalists in the grand final cook-off held in Crown Perth’s Grand Ballroom.

A panel of four judges sampled some of the State’s top steak sandwiches, but it was love at first bite when they were served with Chef Ebbs’ bold and fresh creation!
Chef Ebbs attributed his success to a blending of Australian and Mexican flavours by using house-made salsa and charred guacamole, pickled cabbage, Western Australian bred Wagyu rump and fresh bread from a local bakery.
AHA (WA) CEO Bradley Woods congratulated The Merrywell saying, “the public response to the competition has again been overwhelming; Western Australians are certainly passionate about their steak sandwiches and enjoy being involved in a democratic voting process.
“The steak sandwich brings together everything that is great about WA venues and pubs, from the home-style cooking to locally-grown WA produce.”
With around 500 steak sandwiches served each week at The Merrywell, the innovative take on the traditional steak sandwich has proven to be a popular hit amongst Perth diners.
As a result of the win, The Merrywell has been entered as a finalist in the overall ‘WA’s Best Steak Sandwich’ national competition, held this November at the AHA-Aon Hotel & Hospitality Awards for Excellence.
Crown Perth Chief Operating Officer Andrew Hill said, “Congratulations to Head Chef Ryan Ebbs and The Merrywell team on this fantastic accolade. It further solidifies Crown Perth’s reputation as WA’s leading dining destination, and we wish Chef Ebbs the best of luck in the national competition later this year.”

Crown Promenade Perth introduces new level of luxury - 12 May 2015

Crown Promenade Perth is currently undergoing a room refurbishment and modernisation project which  is due for completion on 1 June 2015.
Show Details

Opening its doors in 2005, each of Crown Promenade's 291 guest rooms are being redesigned with a vibrant new colour palette, fresh carpeting, luxury furnishings and contemporary finishes.

Melbourne based designer Lombard and Jack are the visionary behind the new design and selected the colour palette to reflect the tones and shades of Western Australia.

Each guest room features artwork in the form of the Swan, the Western Australian State symbol, complemented by artwork in the foyers showcasing famous locations such as Broome and Rottnest.

The jewel in the Crown has to be the custom-made beds! Every guest room features a new, luxurious top-of-the-range model designed to provide maximum comfort for the ultimate accommodation experience.

Peter Crinis, Chief Operating Officer at Crown Hotels said that the refurbishment was an integral step in Crown’s development and journey as a leading accommodation provider in Western Australia.

“The refurbishment of Crown Promenade Perth will provide corporate and leisure travellers with a stylish and modern product offering which is both luxurious and affordable. This is a milestone project for Crown; we are exceptionally proud of the progress to date and we’re very much looking forward to presenting the newly updated property to the marketplace,” said Mr Crinis.

The hotel’s 4.5 star AAA rating reflects the new high standard of accommodation.

The hotel’s Lobby is also undergoing refurbishment with tiled feature walls and a central skylight; a new business centre facility will also open in the hotel.
