Kilcoy Exchange Hotel in contention for excellence award
The Kilcoy Exchange Hotel has been named as a finalist in the Queensland Hotels Association (QHA) Awards for Excellence, with the winners to be announced on June 19.
The hotel has nominated for the Best Bistro – Regional, Best Hotel Bar General Division – Regional, and Best Hotel or Pub Style Accommodation categories.
With the annual awards night again being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, this year will be the first time the Kilcoy Exchange Hotel has entered the accommodation category.
While the hotel staff nominate the categories they enter, the staff are unaware of when the judges visit the hotel considering the judges present themselves as regular customers.
Kilcoy Exchange Hotel venue manager Donna Roser said the staff put in a consistent effort to provide excellent customer service.
“We are very excited we have been chosen as a finalist in these awards as there are a lot of entries,” she said.
Donna said being an awards finalist would not be possible without “the great team we have here at the Exchange Hotel”.
Early last year, the Kilcoy-based hotel won the Best Bar Presentation and Service Regional award at the Australian Hotels Association (AHA) National Awards for Excellence.
The previous year, the same hotel was judged Queensland’s Best Regional Bar at the QHA awards.
