The annual AHA|SA Awards for Excellence winners were announced on Tuesday night at the Entertainment Centre in front of an audience of 790 guests. The Warradale Hotel was awarded 2013’s Best Bistro/Casual Dining – Metropolitan, Best outdoor or Non-Enclosed Facility and Best Redeveloped Hotel.
Warradale Hotel, owned by leading hotel group, The Palmer Hospitality Group has been a suburban icon since it opened in 1963. In 2012, the Warradale Hotel underwent an extensive renovation, resulting in a new Bistro, three new bars and a new Bottleshop.
According to Warradale Hotel’s General Manager, Thomas French, the renovation breathed a breath of fresh air into the area and has resulted in a new demographic frequenting the hotel.
“A lot of hotels in Adelaide have undergone renovations over the past few years, it’s great to be recognized as the best redeveloped hotel in the state. It’s certainly a big pat on the back for my team, the architects and interior designers” said Mr French.
“The AHA Awards are judged on the aesthetics of the venue, quality of product and standard of service. Being crowned SA’s Best Bistro and Outdoor Area means the hard work and time spent developing my team to the same high standard of the renovation has paid dividends” Continued Mr French
Winning the state awards has also entered Warradale Hotel in the national AHA Awards held in Canberra on October 2, 2013.
