Thanks to the current boom in Australian hotel building, we've been spoiled for choice when it comes to naming the 2016 Gourmet Traveller Australian Hotel Guide's new hotel of the year. This year's guide features 11 new addresses around the nation; we've whittled them down to a shortlist of the three that made the most dazzling debuts on the Australian accommodation scene.
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.
