Seashells Mandurah was named Western Australia’s Deluxe Accommodation winner at the 2016 Perth Airport Western Australian Tourism Awards Gala Dinner last night.
The property was up against strong competition in finalists Crown Promenade Hotel, Kununurra Country Club Resort, the Mangrove Hotel in Broome and Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough.
Seashells Hospitality Group Managing Director Paul King said the award win was a fantastic achievement for the property and the Seashells Mandurah team.
“Seashells Mandurah has become our flagship property, and it is looking and performing better than ever. This is due in no small part to a strong and talented hospitality team lead by General Manager Ben Chenery.
“Having won Silver in this category last year, winning Gold is extra special,” he said.
“Mandurah and Peel offer so much variety as holiday and business tourism destinations and I believe this is a win for the region as much as it is the property.”
