Recognition for country motel

A BUSINESS in Eidsvold has proven being in a small country town is no barrier to recognition after they were awarded a 2019 Reader's Choice star by Australian Good Food Guide.

Eidsvold on the Corner Motel and Cafe's owner Dianne Wilson said the award belonged to her whole team.

"Our staff really make it, they have the enthusiasm, they're engaging, they know the local history and they can connect with everyday people,” Mrs Wilson said.

She said her business had come a long way in the eight years she's owned it.

"We just fix up little bits and pieces as we can afford it, we've gone along in sections,” Mrs Wilson said.

"It's always a work in progress.

"We're not in competition, we're just trying to do better than yesterday.”

Eidsvold on the Corner was awarded their star in the regional accommodation category for Bundaberg Country.

Establishments listed with the guide have a "vote now” button embedded on their listing and those with the most votes in their category win an award.

"Readers' Choice Awards allow genuine interaction for our readers; they recognise hard working establishments; and they provide AGFG editors with invaluable data on what's popular,” the guide states on its website.

Voting was taken from January 1 to December 31, 2018.
