Beach­front named the na­tion’s best

Sunday Territorian - - LIFESTYLE -

AF­TER a con­sid­er­able mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar in­vest­ment and re­de­vel­op­ment, iconic Night­cliff fore­shore pub the Beach­front Ho­tel has been crowned the ‘ Best Sport­ing En­ter­tain­ment Venue’ in Aus­tralia at the re­cent Na­tional Awards for Ex­cel­lence.

Hospi­tal­ity NT chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Des Crowe said he was de­lighted to see the new look Beach­front Ho­tel had un­der­gone a com­plete trans­for­ma­tion and was now re­ceiv­ing de­served na­tional recog­ni­tion.

“It has the look and feel of an up­mar­ket beach­side ho­tel, with a state-of-the-art sports bar, mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties and cus­tomer fo­cus,” Mr Crowe said.

Beach­front gen­eral man­ager and part owner, Guy Dunne ac­cepted the award at a cer­e­mony at the Gold Coast last Mon­day, Septem­ber 17.

“Ob­vi­ously it’s a fan­tas­tic award to be recog­nised with on the na­tional level,” he said.

“We also won the lo­cal Ter­ri­tory award with Hospi­tal­ity NT ear­lier in May this year.

“This time we were up against some of the best venues in Aus­tralia and there’s some pretty big ones out there, so to achieve this ti­tle and bring it back to Dar­win is quite an hon­our.”

He said Beach­front re­cently un­der­went a ma­jor, mul­ti­mil­lion­dol­lar ren­o­va­tion which saw them bring in the lat­est in sports bar view­ing op­tions and bet­ting fa­cil­i­ties for their cus­tomers.

“We have Dar­win’s largest in­door screen, it’s a 250-inch su­per screen so you can en­joy all your favourite sports at any time of the day in air­con­di­tioned com­fort,” he said.

“We’ve got over 12, 75-inch high def­i­ni­tion screens through­out the venue, so even if your sport of choice isn’t on the big screen, you’ll be able to see it some­where in the venue.

“We’ve also got a sur­round sound au­dio sys­tem, so the sports are live and loud.

“We think we’ve got one of the best spots and ser­vice in the north­ern sub­urbs of Dar­win and of­fer a great al­ter­na­tive for go­ing into town and this na­tional award has just con­firmed that.”
