SA accommodation providers shone at the  2021 HM Awards for Hotel and Accommodation Excellence with the state taking home some of the biggest prizes.

South Australian accommodation providers shone at the  2021 HM Awards for Hotel and Accommodation Excellence. 

The awards that were hosted at a black-tie event at the Sydney Town Hall last Friday announced a number of first-place prizes for SA businesses. 

For the 19th time, the HM Awards recognised the biggest and brightest stars in the accommodation industry across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, from individuals to properties, departments, brands and chains.

HM Awards Chief Judge and Founder, HM magazine’s Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, said this year was again more important than ever to recognise the hard work and dedication of so many individuals and teams.

“HM was proud to produce and present the 2021 HM Awards, particularly one that has again been the most challenging in history for the Australasian accommodation industry,” he said.

“We received over 1,250 entries for the 2021 HM Awards, on par with our record number in 2019, and amongst them were so many stars from this amazing industry.

“I’m proud to say the entries this year – from chefs to housekeepers, five-star resorts and apartment hotels – were incredible and it was terrific to see so many staff and properties highlight so many achievements in challenging times.

“The quality of the winners and highly commended recipients – a full list can be found below – represents some of the industry’s finest and well done to everyone in 2021 across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific,” Wilkinson said.
