2018 Winners! QHA Awards for Excellence
We are currently wrapping up what has been an exciting 2018 here at the Glen Hotel, we are incredibly proud to announce that our team took home the ‘Best Redeveloped Licensed Premise up to $2 million” at the Queensland Hotels Association for 2018 Awards for Excellence last month.
The QHA Awards for Excellence provide a forum for the recognition of the talent and innovation of the Queensland Hotel Industry. The night showcased the achievements of the venues and individuals that make the Queensland Hotel Industry so unique. With so many amazing new and existing hospitality venues redefining the standard of excellence in Brisbane and a record number of nominees this year, it was an honour to be recognised for our achievements.
The major redevelopment of The Glen Hotel last year saw the opening of the very popular Alphonsus Pizza, an exciting new kid’s playground, Charles Baker Donuts and Coffee and improvements to casual dining areas and kitchens. As well as our newest addition Lily Restaurant, a stunning new dining experience at The Glen Hotel. The restaurant features fresh white interiors, gorgeous oak tables, banquette seating, and greenery throughout.
The catalyst for the redevelopment of our 153-year-old hotel was to launch a unique and exciting offering to our customers, that was not found elsewhere in the area. During a trip to the United States, the Hotel’s Directors identified a vast trend towards a new style of dining coined ‘Fine Casual’, which marries the elements of fast food and fine dining. Taking inspiration from this, The Deck was upgraded, alongside new additions - Alphonsus Pizza and Charles Baker Donuts and Coffee. These new offerings have increased the popularity of fast, great quality food at the Hotel and have provided a place for everyone. We are so grateful for this recognition and to all of our patrons and the continued support and interest we have received from the local community.
Owners the Fitzgibbon family celebrated a number of wins on the night with their other venue The Osbourne Hotel taking out the QHA award for “Best Redeveloped Licensed Premises above $2 Million”.
