Primus Hotel Sydney celebrates one year of operation

Today marks the one year anniversary since Primus Hotel Sydney’s grand opening on 23 December 2015.

Can you believe it? One whole year.

A lot can happen in the first year and a lot has!

The stunning revival of a heritage listed space formally known as the headquarters of the Sydney Metropolitan Water Sewerage and Drainage (M.W.S.& D.) Board marked the grand entrance of Greenland International Hotel Group’s (GIHG) first hotel in Australia - and we are so happy that they took this chance.

Since opening our doors we have welcomed guests from all over Australia, China, USA, NZ, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong - to name just a few places.   




We sat down with our General Manager, Mr Daniel Muhor, for a chat recently to talk about the feedback from guests he has received either in person or through sources such as Trip Advisor.

“Guests love that they are transported to an era of 1930’s glamour with the decadent Art Deco lobby and 5 star personal service from the moment they walk through the doors.”

It does seem that it is not only us that has transformed into one of Sydney’s most sought after offerings - our adjoining restaurant, The Wilmot has become a hub for both corporate and leisure guests in the Sydney CBD and is earning an enviable reputation. The seasonal menus heralding quality local produce has enticed the city’s top food writers and critics.

As Primus Hotel Sydney continues to welcome guests through the doors, Greenland Australia are focusing on the development of the Greenland Tower set to be Sydney’s tallest residential tower at 235 metres above ground level with completion due in last 2019. They also have their sights set on opening another Australian hotel in the near future.

Bring on 2017!
