Castlereagh Boutique Hotel

Castlereagh Boutique Hotel choose Altro commercial kitchen solution

Altro Stronghold 30, Altro Whiterock

In the heart of Sydney stands the elegantly restored, heritage-listed Castlereagh Boutique Hotel. The Hotel boasts 82 boutique rooms and suites, but no stay would be complete without dining in the splendour of Cello’s Restaurant. Heritage listed Cello’s Restaurant has been elegantly restored in exact detail to its original 1920’s decor, taking you back in time for an exquisite dining experience.

Recently their kitchen needed an upgrade and they were searching for a flooring and walling solution that would stand the test of time. The kitchen was in near original condition and needed a complete makeover.

Paul Brasch - General Manager, Castlereagh Boutique Hotel & NSW Masonic Club said: “Our kitchen is naturally a very busy environment, servicing two restaurants, two bars and functions up to 150 people all at the same time. The kitchen itself was in a very original condition and needed a total makeover to modernise it and to improve on safety and cleaning procedures. We were introduced to Altro flooring as a high quality, commercial high slip-rated flooring. We then viewed Altro Whiterock in another venue and decided to do both! I am so glad we did. This was no easy undertaking but all parties worked together brilliantly to close the kitchen down, run to a tight timeframe and get the kitchen back up & running again as quickly as possible. We are totally thrilled by the result, our Head Chef is smiling again and now we are looking to conduct cooking classes in our main kitchen. None of this would have been possible before. I highly recommend Altro flooring and Altro Whiterock.”

Being a commercial kitchen they needed a safety floor that would provide a high level of slip resistance and guard against slipping under a range of contaminants such as grease and water. Altro Stronghold 30 provides a one in a million chance against slipping under a range of contaminents and has Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥55, meaning it goes that extra mile and is proven to provide a high level of safety and slip resistance.

After viewing Altro Whiterock in another venue they paired the two interior products to create a totally sealed, hygienic system that’s impervious, non-absorbent and easy to clean. Not to mention it looks great!
