Welcome to Australian Hostels Association, WA




The winners of the 2019 Accommodation Awards for Excellence were announced at the Devil’s Lair Gala Ball last night, celebrating the state’s leading accommodation properties and the management staff who drive their success.

The Australian Hotels Association Perth Airport Accommodation Awards for Excellence recognised WA’s best accommodation hotel venues and management staff across 25 categories.

AHA(WA) CEO Bradley Woods said WA’s accommodation industry continued to reach new levels of excellence and the awards were an opportunity to reflect on the sector’s success.

“In the past year Western Australia’s accommodation industry has reached a new level of excellence, with a number of new properties coming online and several others undergoing substantial refurbishments,” Mr Woods said.

“The level of service, amenities and room options available to visitors is better than ever before and these awards present an opportunity to celebrate the accommodation industry and the dedicated staff who welcome visitors each and every day.”

“Western Australia is a premier tourism destination that is well positioned for future visitation growth, with a range of accommodation options to suit a variety of travellers.”

“Staff who work in hotels across the state are essentially ambassadors for WA and last night’s awards celebrated the important role they play in welcoming visitors and driving excellence within the industry.”

The AHA Accommodation Awards for Excellence highlight WA’s leading hotel venues, their staff, and their commitment to building the State’s reputation as a tourism destination.

Prominent hospitality figure Peter Prendiville was announced as the 2019 Hall of Fame inductee while Crown Towers was crowned WA’s Best Accommodation Hotel.
