Finalist for Second Year in a Row
For the second year running Edgewater has been announced as a finalist in the National Awards for Excellence organised by the Hospitality Association of New Zealand.
Edgewater is one of three finalists in the ‘Best Hotel’ category, which was the same category the hotel was a finalist in last year. Edgewater won that award last year.
General Manager, Jon Brown is delighted with the announcement. “We’re really pleased to have reached this stage for the second consecutive year. It is a testament to the team delivering high quality guest experiences year after year.”
Trading conditions have been very strong and this has contributed to the hotel having the best business performance since its inception in 1986.
During 2015 -2017 there was considerable capital investment, involving refurbishment of all hotel rooms and major upgrades in the public areas. Complementing the revitalisation of the hotel is Edgewater’s management and staff who pride themselves on delivering warm Southern hospitality to guests.
Edgewater was recently re-assessed by Qualmark New Zealand and retained its four and half star grading. The hotel also received Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence, for the third year in a row, in early June.
The other finalists in the Best Hotel category are; Escape to Picton Boutique Hotel and QT Museum Hotel, Wellington. There are other Wanaka finalists in other categories.
The winners will be announced on Thursday 27th September at a gala dinner as part of Hospitality New Zealand’s annual conference. It will be held in Queenstown.
