Perth hotel and restaurant named best in the country

Two venues in Perth have been awarded top honours at the 2019 Australian Hotels Association National Awards for Excellence.

Crown Towers Perth was awarded the Overall Hotel of the Year Award, while Wildflower at COMO The Treasury claimed the Best Restaurant (Metropolitan) Award at a ceremony on the Gold Coast.

The Court was named Australia’s Best Redeveloped Hotel in the general division.

Other WA winners included Long Chim winning the Best Bar Presentation and Service (Metropolitan) Award and Daren Holscher, from Odyssea City Beach, crowned with the Employee Excellence in Service (general division) Award.

Australian Hotels Association (WA) CEO Bradley Woods said the state had been very well represented at the awards.

“WA’s winners beat a strong field of competitors from across Australia,” he said. “These are the best venues in the country so for WA to be awarded with the best hotel and best restaurant is a very strong endorsement for the state.

“In recent years there has been a variety of new hotels, restaurants and pubs either open or undergo significant redevelopments, which has resulted in the industry reaching new levels of excellence in terms of accommodation and food and beverage offerings.

“The quality of WA’s hotels and hospitality venues are unrivalled and provide visitors and locals with a range of affordable and quality options.”
