In September 2018, Eatons Hill Hotel took home the Best Entertainment Venue Award for the third time from the Australian Hotels Association (AHA) at the gala event held at the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort on the Gold Coast.

The Crafers Hotel in South Australia bagged the Overall Hotel of the Year award (Metropolitan) whilst The Headlands Hotel Austinmer in New South Wales was awarded the Overall Hotel of the Year (Regional).

Winners were chosen from more than 5,000 members across Australia, revealed AHA National President Scott Leach. “Our staff and venues combine as the heart and soul of our industry,” Mr Leach said.

“One brings our industry to life each and every day while the other forms its ‘bricks and mortar’ backbone – constantly evolving and changing to ensure we stay at the top of our game.

“The hotel industry is the most dynamic in the nation and a week rarely goes by without the launch of new ideas, renovations or complete re-developments at venues right across the country.

“In a time of great change – when every customer is a potential reviewer – our industry continues to set the standard internationally and I congratulate all nominees and winners,” he said.
