Director Rob Comiskey is extremely proud of the team and all that they have and continue to accomplish together.

“Congratulations to all the finalists and winners on the night! We always have a good time at the QHA Awards, thank you to the Queensland Hotels Association for having us. I’d like to say that without our team of dedicated employees, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve what we have. To the team across our businesses, who could and couldn’t be there Monday night to celebrate, my family and I are so grateful for all that you do. Thank you and congratulations! We can’t wait to see what the next couple of years have in store. The future is looking bright for the Comiskey Group, and that’s thanks to our 686 employees who have helped make it happen” says Rob.

This year’s QHA Awards was the first ever entered by The Doonan which only opened last year. The team are ecstatic to have won such a meaningful title which encompasses their values.

It was great to be able to attend this year with our incredible team from The Doonan! Having only opened the venue last year, the 2024 awards marked the first for The Doonan. We are so proud of what we have achieved at the venue and are honoured to have been recognised for our efforts. The Doonan came away with the award for ‘Best Family Dining’. Being a family-owned business, we take pride in the facilities we offer for all ages and the family-friendly environment we aim to create. We are ecstatic to have won a title that is very meaningful to us; this award encompasses our values and how we operate our venues. I’d like to thank our co-owners at The Doonan, Josh Jones and Neville Allen, as well as our amazing team across the venue, those that celebrated with us on the night and those that couldn’t. The success of The Doonan is a true testament to our talented staff and the support of the local community and our visitor” says Rob.
