It caps a big year for the hotel, having also taken out the Tasmanian Hospitality Awards for Excellence trophy for Best Meetings & Events Venue in August.

Speaking at the awards, Chief Operating Officer Alan Nelson provided some background to the win, saying “We have a purpose-built facility, we tailor our business to meet the needs of our customers, we have a great team and we work really hard to achieve our goals. It’s really all about our team though.”

Woolstore CEO Ben Targett commented, “We’ve had a really busy winter and the forward bookings over summer and beyond are looking really positive. It is clear that Tasmania is still a very popular destination, and that goes for people and organisations who are holding events. We offer a great experience and there is no doubt it is appreciated by our visitors.”
