The Best Seat in the House…

MRSL voted Best Bathrooms in Australia

The decision has been made and Merrylands RSL Club is proud to be announced as the winner of Australia’s best Bathroom. Judges were impressed with the high calibre of submissions received from around the country so deciding on a winner to close Australia’s Best Bathroom Competition was not an easy task, making this a worthy feat.

“We evaluate bathrooms on design, innovation, aesthetics and products and services that improve wellbeing for everyone,” explains competition judge Andrew Lawson, from Total Facilities. “This competition profiles some of the most progressive organisations which are at the forefront of bathroom experiences.” Merrylands RSL Club was up against five quality finalists, but it was the level of finishes and attention to detail rarely seen in our nation’s Club’s that contributed to their win.

The bathrooms were designed with attention to space, luxury and functionality for patrons and staff, while retaining focus on safety and efficiency. Located centrally in the Club, the bathrooms have been described as 5-star quality by members and guests. “The female cubicles in particular provide ample space where our customers can hang their coat and bag, put their phone down, apply makeup and comfortably use the area,” says Steve Brady, Facilities Manager Merrylands RSL. “The location and design of this space means it’s dry and feels clean when you enter.”

The female bathrooms feature seven luxurious cubicles with inlay metallic bronze feature tiles with individual hand basins and accessories, including a handbag holder and mobile phone shelf. There’s also custom made mirrors, designer lighting, and bespoke full height and self-closing timber veneer cubicle petitions, which lends itself to an exclusivity not often experienced in RSL’s. Energy and water saving features were also included in the bathroom facility with high end features built into the sinks, urinals and cubicles.

Merrylands RSL Club CEO said, “We are honoured to see our Club getting recognised for its new spaces and facilities that we believe our members and guests will enjoy for many years to come.” Clubs are not traditionally known to deliver facilities on this high level of quality and practicality, and MRSL is proud to be breaking into this space. The team at Merrylands RSL are transitioning the Club from old to new and wanted to provide its members and guests with modern facilities as part of its $25 Million redevelopment. “A lot of thought and attention to detail was put into every aspect of the Club’s re-development and this recognition is a worthy applause to all involved”, said Mr Miller.

The process undertaken to ensure a quality bathroom was delivered to our members was extensive. A prototype was designed and tested, with feedback provided from individuals and staff which provided designers and architects the insight that we believe has set MRSL Club to win the competition.

But don’t let us tell you how great our bathrooms are, come and experience the newly rejuvenated facilities for yourself.
