Twenty three years is a long time in a job, so it is with some sadness that Alison Torney says farewell to Murchison. “On behalf of Gerhard Scherwinski (dec) and myself, I would like to thank our loyal customers and friends of Murchison for their support over the past years. We have had some wonderful times and hope the new Hotel owners Paul and Emilia enjoy their time in the Railway Hotel. I will miss my friends but will be back to visit from time to time, thanks again.”
New owners, Paul and Emilia Golding are from the Royal Mail Hotel (Top Pub) Nagambie. In that current business for almost 3 years, it was Paul and Emilia’s first venture into the hospitality industry. “Previously both Emilia and I worked for many years in many roles within the caravan and camping Industry. In our first few months of trading we both asked ourselves – what the bloody hell have we got into? After the next few months we actually realised that we could do it and that we were really enjoying the industry.” said Paul.
“The move to Murchison East is a result of the desire to create our own destination and build our ‘vision’ of what we believe will be a distinctive country hotel. In fact we want the Railway Hotel to be a destination venue for everybody,” Paul went on to say Whilst there will be some immediate ‘renovations’ needed before opening, there is a master plan for the future of the premises that most people will be excited about. Paul concluded by saying, “We believe we have brought a new level of vitality to life in Nagambie with our commitment to quality products, entertainment and service to the community and believe that we can offer that same level of commitment at Murch East. We are fortunate to have our son Mitch involved in the business and he along with our team of dedicated staff will ensure that we deliver on our promise of service and support to the 3610 community.” Paul, Emilia and Mitch look forward to becoming part of the 3610 community in the coming weeks and hope you will make yourselves better know in the near future.
