AUSTRALIA’S FAVOURITE HOTEL HAS JUST BEEN REVEALED

Australians have voted and the results are in: Australia’s favourite hotel is Pinetrees Lodge of Lord Howe Island. Coming in at number 1 spot for the second year running in TripAdvisor’s 2018 Travellers’ Choice Awards, Pinetrees Lodge of Lord Howe Island is a family run hotel, who, as its name suggests, is nestled amongst pine trees on the World Heritage site, Lord Howe Island. Pinetrees is one of Australia’s oldest family businesses offering a perfect balance of activity, relaxation, sophistication and amazing food (just ask TripAdvisor reviewers who voted the hotel as a favourite for a second year in a row).

Coming in at 2nd place in TripAdvisor’s 2018 Travellers’ Choice Awards is COMO the Treasury, located in Perth, WA. COMO the Treasury resides within a beautifully restored 19th-century state building in Perth’s central business district. The 48 room hotel, designed by renowned architect Kerry Hill, features handcrafted European furnishings, king-size beds, high ceilings, large windows and travertine stone tiles, with no two rooms alike. The building retains the original government office layout, with every aspect of the hotel boasting understated elegance and contemporary modern luxury.

In 3rd place is Sydney’s Ovolo, situated along Woolloomooloo Whaft, the longest timber-piled wharf in the world. Whilst Ovolo is neighbours to some of Sydney’s best waterfront restaurants such as China Doll and Crinitis, the hotel itself offers in room dining and the Lo Lounge serving coffee and snacks in the morning and wine at night. The hotel itself features bright walls, neon lit quotes and spectacular lighting pieces, all adding to its interiors that are both whimsical and fun. All 100 rooms and suites tell a unique Australian story through art works and travellers look forward to the added extras such as complimentary breakfast, free happy hour and mini bar.
