The Comiskey Group, which has been based in this region for almost 50 years, had two huge wins at the Australian Hotels Association Awards for Excellence.

Eatons Hill Hotel, built and run by the family business, took out the Overall Hotel of the Year Metropolitan for 2022 and won the Best Outdoor/Non-Enclosed Facility.

It is the second time Eatons Hill Hotel has been awarded this title - the first being in 2012, just one year after opening its doors.

The prestigious Australian Hotel of the Year title also remains in the Comiskey Group family for a second successive year.
