THE Gourmet Traveller Australian Hotel Awards were announced in Sydney last night and Canberra’s Hotel Hotel has picked up Boutique Hotel of the Year and Best Bar.
The awards, hosted by Catriona Rowntree and attended by Australia’s pre-eminent hoteliers and travel industry experts, recognise the cornerstone experiences of any great hotel stay, from the best service to the best breakfast.
The Gourmet Traveller reviewers traversed the country from Darwin to Hobart in the quest to find Australia’s best stays. All visits were anonymous and the magazine paid its own way so each review is an engaging, frank and honest appraisal of a property.
"SINCE the last election, the Labor-Greens government has been using every possible tactic to delay the onset of the Integrity Commission," writes MICHAEL MOORE who believes ACT voters have deliberately been kept in the dark over corruption.
