Saffire Freycinet has been named the ‘Best Overall Boutique Hotel in the World’ at the prestigious World Boutique Hotel Awards held last night in London.

Its a big call to be ‘the best hotel in the world’ but the Tasmanian hotel has done it and was last night crowned ‘Best Overall Boutique Hotel in the World’ at The Montcalm Hotel in Marble Arch, London.

This accolade adds to a host of awards won in the last year by Saffire, including the Best Luxe Hotel at the Australian Traveller Reader’s Choice Awards and 2014 grand award winner in the January issue of Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report.

And the views not bad either

Saffire Freycinet is part of Tasmania’s Federal Group and has become an iconic statement of luxury that has taken the state’s tourism to a new level. Accepting this award was Federal Group Executive Director Mr John Farrell, who said this was the fulfilment of a dream for the family owned company.

“We wanted to showcase to the world the very best that Tasmania has to offer. We wanted people to fall in love with this very special place, just as my parents and my entire family have. This award demonstrates that we have succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.”

“Feedback from the anonymous stay of one of the judges on this panel is that Saffire is truly unique and our tailored service, combined with the warmth felt from all staff made him feel like he was ‘amongst family’, the highest compliment any hotel could wish for!”
