The announcement that we were once again a finalist rumbled through the hotel, "Could we be lucky enough to Win again?," "Have we done enough over the last 12 months to win?" all questions on everyone's mind.
For me I felt sick but with excitment, Mr & Mrs Jones announced we would be going to the ceremony and I was lucky enough to be able to go again and represent the St Kilda Hotel.
Mrs Jones, Julia, Jeanette and myself went to London on the 15th June to the Awards Ceremony in the Riverbank Plaza Hotel, a fabulous location for such a grand event.
We were all secretly hoping to win, but when you look at the list of nominees we were up against you begin to wonder if it is just a dream. That dream I am happy to say did become a reality when they announced
"The St Kilda Hotel the Winner" for the 4th year running.
Before we had time to take it all in we were up on stage to accept our trophy, with legs shaking like jelly and all eyes upon us, it was still exciting the fourth time as it was the first.
Back at our table it was time to let anyone and everyone we knew to be contacted by mobile phone or text, we were riding high on all the excitement and the conrgatulations kept coming, what a night!
The GTO are to be congratulated on holding such a fabulous evening from start to finish it was perfection! I only hope I will be able to go again next year!!
