Kilcoy Exchange Hotel Best Regional Bar in Qld
Queensland Hotel Association annual awards 2021
The vision and hard work from Jim and Di Davies of the Kilcoy Exchange Hotel, along with the superb efforts from their team of dedicated staff, has paid off with the hotel winning top honours at the Queensland Hotel Association annual Awards for Excellence last week.
Kilcoy Exchange Hotel was judged Queensland’s Best Regional Bar at the gala dinner and awards night held at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre on Monday 7 June, 2021.
The QHA Awards for Excellence are recognised as the most prestigious awards in the hospitality industry, honouring the achievement of excellence in a wide range of categories. This on-going commitment to excellence ensures Queensland’s hotels are some of the best in Australia.
The Kilcoy Exchange Hotel is much more than just excellent food, cold beverages, quality entertainment, unique accommodation and un-matchable service. The Hotel provides the social fabric that binds our local community together; acting as the meeting place for local clubs and organisations, providing fund-draising opportunities for local sporting clubs and associations as well as offering a socially inclusive atmosphere and a friendly ear for anyone that needs a chat. The value that the Kilcoy Exchange Hotel plays within our community should not be underestimated.
The Best Regional Bar category recognised a bar or hotel that offered a memorable visit to patrons with an emphasis on excellence in customer service. The judged area within the hotel was specific to the bar area, however the overall customer experience was also part of the judging criteria.
As a result of winning this category, Kilcoy Exchange Hotel has the opportunity to compete as a finalist in the AHA National Hotel Awards to be announced in Hobart in September.
