The Sebel Brisbane Margate Beach Hotel has opened its doors, offering guests and Peninsula locals 4.5-star luxury at their doorstep. The $15 million hotel took more than 12 months of planning and construction and has views overlooking Moreton Bay on the corner of McCulloch Avenue and Margate Parade, Margate.

The hotel’s fresh, industrial chic design is completely different to anything else seen before on the Redcliffe Peninsula, hotel marketing manager Maree Reason-Cain says.

“Having a 4.5-star boutique hotel is certainly a milestone for the Redcliffe Peninsula,’’ Maree says.

Visitors will be impressed with the first-class facilities, including a rooftop pool and terrace, and versatile function space for business events, meetings and special celebrations.

Maree says the function space is adaptable to a variety of event styles and purposes, catering from board meetings to cocktail parties, conferences and weddings.

The hotel features a signature restaurant and bar, Margate Beach House, where diners and bar patrons can enjoy ocean views.

“Redcliffe is craving a restaurant like this,” executive chef Steve Bestwick says.

“The Sebel’s Margate Beach House is going to be a hotspot for an indulgent weekend brekky and tempting lunch or dinner — a place where you feel at home amongst friends and family to share delicious dishes within a great beachside environment.”

Margate Beach House offers fresh seasonal menu choices seven days a week from 6.30am to 9pm.

By day, the restaurant provides cafe-style food in a mix of sharing platters and à la carte menu, featuring locally sourced seafood. By night, the focus is Modern Australian cuisine, specialty cocktails and an extensive selection of craft beers.

The new hotel, featuring 58 studio rooms and suites, fits in perfectly with the newly revamped foreshore of Margate Beach.

“It has capitalised on the existing infrastructure such as the beachfront boardwalk,’’ Maree says.

“The Moreton Bay views are absolutely extraordinary, and it’s a holiday destination that you will remember that is very rarely found these days.

“Margate and the Redcliffe Peninsula offer the perfect holiday spot of times gone by.’’
