2016 Judges’ Comments

The Grande Hotel in Hepburn Springs is an extraordinary find, tucked away behind the main street, flanked by old buildings and surrounded by forest. It’s been beautifully renovated with care and respect, and the entry opens up to series of exciting spaces. The Grande has many strengths in its broad range of offerings – food all day, a la carte dinners, banquets vegan banquets (for functions), and entertainment and accommodation. The Grande offers locals and visitors a grand eating-out experience with some welcome differences, and the value for money was good.
