We are very pleased to announce that we have been nominated in the 2019 Australian Hotels Association Awards for Excellence in the category of Best Redeveloped Hotel in Australia.

Accredited as the most prestigious awards in the hospitality industry, the Australian Hotels Association National Awards for Excellence both recognises and rewards excellence across a variety of segments. As State winners of the same category at the 2018 Queensland Hotel Association Awards for Excellence, we now move up the ranks to take on the countries best, with representatives from around Australia competing for the top prize! The major redevelopment of The Glen Hotel last year saw the opening of the very popular Alphonsus Pizza, an exciting new kids’ playground, Charles Baker Donuts and Coffee and improvements to casual dining areas and kitchens.

Since being awarded Best Redeveloped Hotel in Queensland at the 2018 QHA Awards, the Hotel has seen more updates and exciting changes. October 2018 saw the opening of Lily, a brand new dining offering in the space previously known as the Garden Grille Restaurant. Named after the owner’s grandmother Lily Fitzgibbons, Lily exudes a sense of calmness, and heritage and encourages patrons to escape the ordinary and indulge. Later in November, a brand new function space, The Heritage Room, was also unveiled. Located upstairs above the Deck, the room which was once home to the Hotel's owners has transformed into a modern events space with nods to the Hotel’s traditional facades. A space never before open to the public in the 150 + years of Hotel operation, The Heritage Room offers a private bar, bathrooms and balcony overlooking the Hotel grounds.

The catalyst for both past and present redevelopments at the Hotel was to offer unique and exciting hospitality offerings to our customers, that are not found elsewhere in the area. The new offerings launched throughout 2017 and 2018 have increased the popularity of fast, great quality food at the Hotel and truly has provided a place for everyone. From those after a quick coffee on the way to work to families wanting quality fast food in an ambient environment, to those who look to host their events here; The Glen Hotel makes everyone feel welcomed.

Going up against the country’s best venues, the competition will be tight but hopefully, we will take home a win! Wish us luck, as we strive to become Australia’s Best Redeveloped Hotel of 2019.
