Pet Friendly accommodation
Liptelvin Hillside Retreat was the proud recipient of a prestigious national tourism award for their pet and family friendly accommodation in 2010. Run by Australia's only independent boutique accommodation site TakeABreak.com.au (recently acquired by the renowned stayz.com.au) - the award recognises outstanding service in specialist segment categories that provide holiday-makers with great suggestions based on their needs.
The award was based solely on guest reviews and the winners were then selected from more than 22,000 properties in 1400 localities and 39 accommodation types. Finalists achieved a consistent 4/5 star rating from five or more guest comments.
Winning the 'Family-friendly Holiday Accommodation' award, Liptelvin was voted the best from clients staying at the property. "We are so proud to win this award as it shows us how happy our guests are," Mrs Jensen said. "It is also a testament to the tourism industry in our region."
In 2009 Liptelvin Hillside Retreat was a state finalist in the category - Pet Friendly Accommodation. In 2010 Liptelvin Hillside Retreat was again a state finalist in the category - Pet Friendly Accommodation and in it's first year of entry in the category, state finalist for Family Friendly Accommodation, announced as a state winner for the latter. The retreat then went on to win the national award.
