Escarpment Group dining outlets in the Blue Mountains are among Sydney’s finest, after three were shortlisted in the annual Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA) awards on Thursday July 26.

Darley’s Restaurant in the Lilianfels Resort & Spa property at Echo Point was runner-up in the Deluxe Restaurant category to Black by Ezard at the Star, while Echoes Restaurant also at Echo Point and the Wintergarden Restaurant at the Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath were finalists in the mid-range category.

Escarpment Group’s luxury Hunter Valley property, The Convent, took out the Regional Superior Hotel of the Year gong.

The awards were announced at a glittering gathering of the best hotels in the state’s multi-billion dollar tourism sector at a ceremony in Sydney in front of a record crowd of more than 800 political, industry and business leaders including NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall.

The "people categories" form a vital part of the annual awards, which this year saw a record-breaking 320 nominations received from 82 NSW hotels across 34 categories.

Escarpment Group operations manager Adam Holmes congratulated kitchen and wait staff at all dining venues for delivering consistent food excellence and customer service: "It’s great to see that the Blue Mountains was once again a favoured destination for Regional Deluxe travellers, with our colleagues at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley taking out top prize for the Regional Deluxe Hotel of the Year and the Fairmont Resort winning Rooms Division Talent of the Year."

TAA NSW chairman Peter Tudehope said staff were the greatest asset of any hotel, no matter the size or location of the venue: "It is the quality of staff that really make or break a hotel.

"Well-trained, attentive staff are the difference between a routine hotel stay and a unique experience that will be enjoyed, remembered and talked about for years to come. I would like to congratulate all the nominees and all the winners on the work they do each and every day to provide a premium experience to all guests in our hotels – you really do make a difference."
