Organised by Downtown in Business, the ceremony will take place on Thursday 21 June at Stanley House Hotel and Spa.

Costa Betianu, General manager of the hotel, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for the Hotel of the Year award.

“It was a proud moment for the hotel to claim the award in 2017 and we have high hopes of claiming the award once again!

“The general public submitted votes to help create the list of finalists.

“I think this shows how much hard work we put in at the hotel that the public are voting for us.

“Each day, every team member looks to create an unrivalled experience for our guests.

“We are always looking at ways to enhance the hotel and make guest’s stays as comfy as possible.”

In 2016, the hotel, which is managed by Squire Hotels, joined the Best Western Plus brand following a business decision to raise the hotel’s profile on both a local and national level.

Current facilities at the venue include the Merchants restaurant and bar, seven meeting and conference rooms and the Canberra Suite, which is able to hold up to 220 guests.

Jodi Masterson, managing director at Squire Hotels, said: “The decision to join the Best Western brand has really paid off.

“It was a big move for the hotel and I’m delighted we are reaping the awards.

“We were named the Hotel of the Year in 2017 and we have a chance to win that title again.

“Since joining the team Costa has been a breath of fresh air and I feel his impact at the hotel has only strengthened our entry.”
