Atura Hotel Blacktown

Atura Hotel Blacktown was awarded Australia's best mid-range hotel accommodation in the yearly Australian Hotel Association Awards for Excellence.

The hotel, in Prospect, has been open for less than a year and was up against big names in the hotel and travel industry.

The award was given during a ceremony in the Gold Coast on September 15.

Atura Hotels & Resorts operations and development director Geoffrey York (pictured) was thrilled with the win.

"Since opening the hotel doors we've been overwhelmed by the positive response to Atura Blacktown's unique design-led, high value approach," he said.

"Winning this national award against such an impressive line-up of Australian hotel properties makes it even more special."

To be eligible for the award, entrants had to first win a state title through a submission process that included mystery shopping by an independent judge.

Atura Blacktown won best mid-range hotel accommodation of the year at the NSW Tourism Accommodation Association Awards in July.

Key collaborators on the Atura Blacktown project included QT Hotels & Resorts interior designer Nic Graham, Melbourne-based stylist Anna Roberts and hospitality architect Peter Israel.

Amalgamated Holdings Limited group managing director David Seargeant said the company was delighted with the recognition provided via the award to "our new Atura Hotel brand and to western Sydney in general".
