MEDIA RELEASE – 10 August 2010
The award-winning Country Guesthouse Schönegg in Murrumbateman has just announced some deliciously exciting new dining experiences for its guests in time for Spring.
“Our new dining experiences include a truly indulgent „champagne breakfast? and sophisticated dining packages in partnership with the region?s top restaurants”, said host, Richard Everson, who is hanging up his apron after seven years in the Schönegg kitchen to return to the corporate world.
“Whilst we are ceasing operation of our licensed restaurant, Evelyn and I are keen to ensure Schönegg remains as popular as ever with lovers of fine food and wine,” he continued.
Breakfast, included in the tariff, is now an even more elegant affair. In true European style, a selection of cold meats and cheeses and sparkling wine have been added to the already generous breakfast buffet, and contemporary dishes join traditional favourites on the a la carte breakfast menu.
Also new, a lunch and dinner menu of cold platters has been designed for guests who opt to enjoy good food without leaving the property. The range includes seafood, gourmet and sweet treats.
“And for those after a sophisticated night of fine dining, we offer dinner packages including transfers to and from three of the region?s finest restaurants – Flint in the Vines, Poachers Pantry Smokehouse Cafe and Grazing, Gundaroo. Packages, including transfers, start from just $55 per person. To travel in style, dinner transfers in a stretch Mercedes with a local limo service are also available for an additional cost” Richard said.
Other changes at Schönegg include a revamp of the website – a move which will ensure those contemplating a visit are aware of all that the region has on offer. Visitors will find a wealth of information on „Food and Wine?, „Active Lifestyle? and „Wellbeing and Relaxation.” In addition to booking a dining package, guests can request a Hot Rock Massage at the award-winning Geranium House Day Spa or an in-room beauty treatment or massage at Schönegg.
“One thing that definitely isn?t changing is our commitment to making a guest?s visit to Schönegg an experience that nourishes body, heart and soul long after their visit is complete”, Richard concluded.
