Staff rewarded for Long Service

It's that time of year again! The time when staff with five or more years service are rewarded for their loyalty at our annual Long Service Awards.

This year was a record, with 60 staff members invited to a Champagne and canapés reception, in recognition of their service to Ashdown Park and Elite Hotels. Those reaching a 5 year milestone each received a celebratory gift. The awards were presented by the Managing Director of Elite Hotels, Graeme Bateman.
