Anne Mosher of Abbeymoore Manor was just awarded the Victoria Hospitality Award for June 2010. Anne’s partner, Ian MacPhee, says “Fourteen ambassadors from the City of Victoria descended on Abbeymoore and lavished gifts and praise upon her. It was fun watching her be speechless for a change!”
Anne’s act of incredible hospitality was to help out a visitor who was coming to town to assess her aging Godmother who was living on her own. The visitor had called Abbeymoore to inquire about staying there and Anne offered to provide a cot (delivered) at no charge so the lady could stay with her Godmother. The cot was delivered along with freshly baked scones and the visit went well.
Since 1994, the Victoria Hospitality Award Program (VHAP) has encouraged outstanding hospitality by recognizing individuals, companies and associations from the Greater Victoria area that go out of their way to make visitors, and locals, feel like there’s no better place to visit or live. Anne and Ian have previously won the BC B&B Innkeepers Guild’s own Moyra Turner Hospitality Award. Fellow innkeepers are not surprised that the city of Victoria has recognized Anne. She is hospitable and caring and sets a high standard for us all.
