About Us

Best Western Australasia is part of Best Western International, the World’s Biggest Hotel Family, with over 4,000 hotels in 100 countries. Every night around 450,000 guests sleep at a Best Western – that’s over 160 million guest nights each year.

We have operated locally for over 50 years. We pioneered a need for minimum standards and branding in Australasia.

In 1975, we partnered with the United States to introduce Best Western International. We’ve now launched 3 hotel types.

Our Hotels

Best Western Australasia Network
There are 160 Best Western hotels across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. Ranging from 3.5 to 5 star properties, each Best Western hotel, apartment and resort is independently owned and operated. All hotels meet Best Western’s global quality assurance standards for features, service and design.

This standard protects our brand equity and your asset.

Most Best Western Australasia hotels also opt-in and achieve the Star Ratings Australia or Qualmark program standards.


Our Model

We’re an organisation owned by its members. Operating as a co-operative, collected revenue is spent on developing and enhancing the Best Western brand, promoting individual properties and providing valuable services to members – not on profit distributions for external shareholders. At Best Western, it’s our job to help you increase your business. This unique model sets us apart from other brands, as we provide a level of service and care other hotel groups simply can’t match.
