BW Coachman's Rest has a Local Flavour


The Best Western Coachman's Rest has a local flavour

With a new team in the kitchen, the emphasis for Cafe Lamplighter at the Best Western Coachman's Rest Motor Inn in Eden NSW is on offering guests a real taste of Eden.

With two local chefs in the kitchen, the new menu has been designed to showcase the local produce, especially the fantastic fresh seafood on offer.

"These days running a motel is about a lot more than just offering weary travellers a place to rest their heads. It is about offering guests the chance to really experience their destination," says property owner Deanne Bibby. "Our new menu for Café Lamplighter ensures visitors experience the amazing fresh produce Eden has to offer. Not only do we offer them a good night's sleep and the chance to experience our great region, they can enjoy the taste of Eden as well."

Philip Archibald has recently been promoted to Head Chef after two years with the Best Western Coachman's Rest. He is a local boy who, after completing his training at Bega TAFE, gained experience Eden's Bianca's Restaurant in the Australasia Hotel. Kayleen Cox, another local chef who previously worked at Pambula Hotel/Motel, was recently appointed to Philip's team.

"Both Philip and Kayleen are well acquainted with the local food scene and have created a new menu that features the fresh seafood coming in daily from the Eden fishing fleet including local Pambula Lake rock oysters, fish, mussels and crayfish, while also offering Sapphire Coast grain fed beef and local fruits and vegetables," commented Deanne.

Café Lamplighter is situated at the Best Western Coachman's Rest Motor Inn in Eden NSW and has seating for up to 100 guests. Catering is available for families or couples on self drive holidays and corporate travelers are invited to join the special Reps table if they don't wish to dine alone.

Set on two acres, so guests wake to the sound of the native birds, the 3.5 star Best Western Coachman's Rest Motor Inn features ground floor units including deluxe spa suites, a salt water pool and heated spa, a BBQ area and friendly staff that can advise guests about the local attractions nearby. Eden is the gateway to the Sapphire Coast, offering unspoiled beauty surrounded by national parks and is situated on the shores of Twofold Bay - one of the deepest natural harbours of the world. This old whaling town has so much to offer.
