TripAdvisor has used the millions of reviews and opinions collected over the past year from travellers to determine the BEST hotels across Australia.

The coveted Travellers Choice awards consider the hotel’s value, service, amenities and overall experience, as reviewed by travellers worldwide.

Let’s see which hotels took out the top honours Australia wide. DRUMROLL.

1. Ovolo Woolloomooloo – Sydney

TripAdvisor average annual price of $434 per night.

Ovolo Woolloomooloo CEO and Founder Girish Jhunjhnuwala said he was “all shook up” after receiving the news.

“A great start to the year being named TripAdvisor’s No.1 hotel in Australia! It’s you, our shiny, happy guests that has made this possible! Thank you!,” he said.

Stretched along Sydney’s Woolloomooloo Wharf, Ovolo Woolloomooloo has Sydney Harbour views and is a stroll away from some of Sydney’s best waterfront restaurants.

The hotel marries heritage with modern luxury, and features contemporarily designed loft rooms.

A TripAdvisor reviewer commended, “Absolutely unique hotel that’s a cut above the rest. All staff were friendly and professional.”

TripAdvisor average annual price of $1,387 per night.

Sitting on World Heritage site Lord Howe, Pinetrees Lodge is nestled amongst pine trees, faces one of the world’s most pristine lagoons, and surrounded by lush forests and a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna.

“There are probably not many places in the world that are still so raw and ‘untouched’,” a TripAdvisor reviewer praised.

One of Australia’s oldest family businesses and a two-year consecutive Travellers’ Choice #1 award winner, Pinetrees Lodge offers a range of activities for all ages and traveller types, from surfing, snorkelling and diving to bird watching, fishing, golfing and day spas.
