Every year, we produce the Australian Hotel Guide to scout the country for the very best in hotels: from city to country, coast to coast, club sandwich to club sandwich. We check into reviewed hotels anonymously and pay our own way. What we experience at these top Australian addresses is the same as what you, our readers, would experience. No special treatment; no added extras. Just honest, informative reviews of the best hotel experiences around the country. It's time to get packing. Pick up a copy of our 2017 Hotel Guide with our June issue, out now.
