DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central has been awarded the prestigious ‘Event Venue of the Year’ award at the inaugural Scottish Food Awards. The hotel is owned and managed by Amaris Hospitality and is one of Hilton Scotland’s 16 properties.
New for 2017, the Scottish Food Awards honour Scotland’s finest food with year-round ratings and annual awards. The awards are completely independent and are founded on deep knowledge and experience.
The winners were announced at a ceremony on 7 May at the King’s Hall in Edinburgh, attended by hundreds of finalists. Executive Chef, Billy Campbell was on hand to collect the award, following a year of hard work from his team.
Speaking at the event, Billy said: “We work hard to deliver inspirational and delicious food of a consistently high standard and I am thrilled and extremely proud to accept this award on behalf of the entire team”.
The hotel, which is located on Cambridge Street, in the centre of Glasgow, has been completely transformed following the investment of £11 million.
Every part of the sophisticated city centre property, including its 300 modern guest rooms, public areas and events space has been completely refurbished. A brand-new restaurant, Brisket, has also been added providing a range of European and British food and specialising in tantalising meat dishes.
A large chunk of the investment has focused on transforming the hotel’s world-class conference facilities. The Grand Ballroom is Scotland’s largest hotel meeting space, accommodating up to 1,500 guests. A further 12 fully flexible meeting spaces are available offering state-of-the-art equipment, natural daylight and complimentary high-speed WiFi.
Ideally located in the heart of the city centre, the DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central is just 0.5 miles from both Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street Train Station and within walking distance of all the city’s amenities. Glasgow International Airport is just a 30-minute drive from the hotel.
