Monday, November 24th, 2008 - Bellevue Bed & Breakfast McLaren Vale

McLaren Vale bed & breakfast owners Jenny McGrath and Ciaran Cryan have won the 2008 South Australian Tourism award for Hosted Accommodation. This is the first time for at least six years that a traditional Bed & Breakfast has won this category.

The 2008 South Australian Tourism Awards were opened by the Premier Mike Rann who celebrated Australia's second largest industry, acknowledging the excellence and number of entries.

The prestigious Awards salute the tourism industry’s leading operators, businesses and individuals. They reinforce the enormous value of tourism to the community, highlighting the great experience on offer across South Australia and recognise the hard work of tourism operators who go that extra step to provide guests with a memorable and quality experience.

“We are an accommodation and holiday experience”, said Ciarán, “regardless of the reason guests come to stay they leave with Bellevue being one of the highlights of their trip.”

A panel of judges selected Bellevue B&B based on stringent criteria including key factors such as customer service, professional development, environmental sustainability, cultural and social responsibility as well as involvement and contribution to the tourism industry on a local, state and national level.

This involved an overnight stay by a member of the judging panel at Bellevue B&B. Jenny said, “The submission process is long and involved but ultimately we feel it is worth the effort, our guest are always telling us we have looked after them superbly and our attention to detail is second to none."

As a South Australian Tourism Awards winner, Bellevue Bed & Breakfast is now automatically entered into the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards to be held in Melbourne, Victoria in February 2009, to compete against the best in each State and Territory.
