2021 Accommodation Awards for Excellence

Location: Crown Perth
Date: August 9, 2021

The acclaimed AHA Perth Airport Accommodation Awards for Excellence is widely recognised and celebrated as the premier event on Western Australia’s hospitality industry calendar each year. 

The Devil’s Lair Gala Ball hosted the presentation of these prestigious awards at The Westin Perth on Monday 9 August 2021.



The winners of the 2021 Perth Airport Accommodation Awards for Excellence were revealed at the Devil’s Lair Gala Ball last night, recognising WA’s premier accommodation properties and the management staff who drive their success.

AHA(WA) CEO Bradley Woods said the awards were a fitting way to celebrate WA’s hotels after a challenging 18 months.

“These awards are a way of recognising excellence within WA’s accommodation industry and this year it was particularly important to reward the extraordinary effort that our industry has made throughout the pandemic,” Mr Woods said.

“Despite the challenges the industry has faced, we have seen business continue to strive for and reach new levels of excellence across Perth and regional WA.”

“WA’s hotel industry is well placed to rebound strongly after COVID-19.”

“The staff working in hotels and hospitality venues across the state are outstanding ambassadors for WA and everyone is looking forward to welcoming international guests when borders reopen.”

“Last night we also paid tribute to the nine state quarantine hotels for keeping Western Australians safe during COVID-19, through the AHA Service to Australia Awards.”

“Those delivering hotel quarantine services have been extraordinary and staff within these hotels have made huge sacrifices while working in stressful environments.”
