The Terrace Hotel finally flung open it’s doors last Thursday evening with an opulent VIP soirée. Guests including Premier Colin Barnett, Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi, Ray Costarella, Emma Booth, Jessica Gomes, Zara Bryson and PR maven Caitlin Irving were treated to endless rounds of Veuve Clicquot and canapés prepared by Executive Chef Shannon Wilson.
Actress Emma Booth was the guest of honour and looked like every inch the Hollywood starlet in an exquisite floor length Aurelio Costarella gown. It was the first time that all three Telethon Adventurers Ambassadors (myself, Ray Costarella and Emma Booth) were together, and we took the opportunity to have a photo with Rick and Emily Parish who founded the Telethon Adventurers back in 2010 after losing their beautiful son Elliot to cancer.
The boutique hotel has 15 custom designed rooms. Each suite is adorned with stunning artwork, fresh fruit and flowers and the bathrooms are finished with sleek black marble and dark wood. Two cheeky guests even hopped into one of the beds to test the comfort factor and gave it a big thumbs up!
WA Today Lifestyle editor Jillian McHugh and 92.9 presenter Lisa Fernandez enjoyed catching up over a glass or two of Veuve.
Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi jetted back into Perth from a work conference in the U.S and Canada the day before the opening, she narrowly avoided getting caught in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Lisa gave a gorgeous speech welcoming the boutique hotel to Perth. I’m always amazed by our Lord Mayor’s energy and passion.

Guests were treated to a gorgeous gift bag which included a miniature bottle of Hendricks gin, English breakfast tea and a Kailis mother of pearl pen.
I can’t wait to try afternoon tea at The Terrace, the two options are the Great Gatsby inspired ‘Temperance Package’ and the ‘Daisy Package’, which includes a glass of my favourite bubbles, Veuve Clicquot. Yum yum!
A big congratulations to The Terrace Hotel team for a truly flawless opening, with a special shout out to event organiser Meg Coffey who worked round the clock in the days leading up to the opening. The Terrace Hotel will no doubt provide a world class level of service and style that has been missing from Perth.
Welcome to the neighbourhood.
