2016 Australian Hotel Awards: Boutique Hotel of the Year Finalists

Small is beautiful, but it can also be a challenge. How do you please everyone all of the time when you have only a fraction of the resources of the big hotels? Easy. You turn on the small-hotel charm, delivering highly personalised service, a distinctive character and sense of place, and a welcome that is warm and genuine.

Stay tuned as we announce the finalists in all categories in the lead up to our 2016 Australian Hotel Guide Awards on 25 May. Our 2016 Australian Hotel Guide will be on sale on 26 May.
