Moyra Turner Hospitality Award
We feel so strongly about striving for excellence in hospitality that we annually recognize the member innkeeper who best exhibits hospitality, and who best promotes the concept of hospitality. Nominations for the Moyra Turner Hospitality Award require affirmation of exemplary hospitality by guests or other Guild members.
Moyra Turner was a much loved and respected founding member, who gave effortlessly to her guests and fellow members. Never seeing the glass half-empty, she was a caregiver who lived to please those around her. Moyra passed away from cancer in 1999, but will live forever in our hearts, and has set an example for us all.
2002 was the inaugural year for the Moyra Turner Hospitality Award. We recognize the recipients of this award, as an example of Why you should stay with one of our member inns in wonderful British Columbia, Canada!
