THE winds of change have blown through The Palms Motel, with new managers intent on bringing a wealth of experience to the business.

Southern Cross Motel Group now operates the facility and has appointed experienced duo Per Vilsbaek and Bevan Cox as managers.

Bevan said he looked forward to the challenge of taking the reins at The Palms and seeing how far they could go.

"We want to turn this place into a go-to venue - it's about gaining the town's confidence and trust, particularly on the restaurant side of things,” he said.

Bevan and his colleagues will draw on their experience in the industry and leave no stone unturned in making sure their clients have an outstanding experience.

"I have 30-plus years in the hospitality industry as a chef and manager,” Bevan said.

"We're offering different menus, specials and weekend packages amongst other things.

"Our customers will get value for money, a friendly response from all staff and clean, modern serviced rooms.

"They can also expect fresh quality food served in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.”

Located only a short drive away from the heart of town, The Palms Motel has free undercover parking, a swimming pool and a laundry.

All rooms also come with free internet, air conditioning and Foxtel.

Within its comfortable and relaxed restaurant, The Palms is passionate about seasonal produce and update their menu with each new season. They are committed to quality, creativity and taste.

With a blend of herbs, spices, wines and liqueurs, The Palms chefs take the time to create their own unique sauces and flavours.

Bevan said he could not wait to immerse himself into the community through the business.

"We've enjoyed Chinchilla and its friendliness.

"The people we've met, mainly the tradespeople we've dealt with, have all been happy to help us out.

"Once we've done the hard yards, we can focus on getting involved in the town more.”
