Of all the hotels we've reviewed around Australia in the past 12 months, which one impressed us most? It could be a new address or an established one; it could be sprawling or small, located in the city, by the beach, or in the country. There's only one real criterion: our hotel of the year has to be the very best of the top 50 hotels we've checked into.
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.
