The AHA NSW Awards for Excellence are recognised as the most prestigious awards programme in the hospitality industry. The awards honour the achievement of excellence in NSW hotels across a variety of segments including accommodation, dining, entertainment, marketing, social media, community service and talented employees.

The General Division Awards are open to all “pubstyle” hotel members of the Australian Hotels Association NSW who are current members and meet the nomination criteria as detailed in the nomination book.

Each year, the quality of services and facilities continues to impress and display an extremely high standard throughout the industry.

Hotels are classified as country or metropolitan, based on their Sub-Branch boundaries and finalists in all categories will receive promotional support from the Association.

Finalists are presented with a certificate as well as a finalist logo and winners are presented with plaques and a winners logo which can be used for your hotels overall marketing and promotional campaign.

Here are a few new categories that have been introduced this year:

  • Best Burger
  • Hotel Industry Rising Star
  • Apprentice/Trainee of the Year

…and the introduction of an overall award of Best Bathroom facilities (this one you can’t enter – you will be judged on this during your anonymous visit).

We have also taken on board feedback from last years awards, and understand how time poor members can be, so we have reduced the amount of categories that require a written submission.


When logging into the awards website to nominate, please note that if your venue has an account already set up you will just need to retrieve your user name and password to log back in.If the original contact person who created the account has left the business or the email address has been changed, please contact us on 02 8218 1877 or and we can update these details for you to log in.
