The Australian Hospitality Association has once again announced their 2018 winners for South Australia, and there are some absolute champion hotels and restaurants that have cleaned up!

The Crafers Hotel did exceptionally well, and won 5 awards, taking out the best Superior Hotel Accommodation, joint winner for best Bistro Casual Dining (Metropolitan) and Redeveloped Hotel (Metropolitan), best Apprenticeship Development and Training hotel, and Best Overall Hotel in South Australia! That’s a lot of awards – congratulations!

The Warradale Hotel also took out the top awards for Staff Development and Training (General Division), Sporting Entertainment Venue, and judge’s commendation for Outdoor or Non-enclosed Facility.

We don’t know how the AHA manages to choose their winners, we love them all and would struggle majorly in picking our favourites.

Well done to all the other brilliant venues that took home awards or were nominated!
