Grand Central Hotel has been crowned City Hotel of the Year award at the Prestige Hotel Awards, while the Golden Jubilee was presented with Conference Hotel regional title at Scotland’s flagship Hotel Awards.
Scotland’s Prestige Hotel Awards was created to showcase and reward outstanding service within the hotel industry in Scotland.
The recent win for the Grand Central Hotel is the result of a public vote for hotel-goes favourite hotel and exemplary staff that have left a lasting impression across the last year.
Paul Bray, General Manager of Grand Central Hotel, said: “I am thrilled Grand Central Hotel was awarded City Hotel of the Year. It means even more that these awards were voted for by our customers. There is a lot of competition in the city so it is great that the team really managed to set themselves and the hotel apart.
“There has also been a lot of investment in the hotel to ensure it remains fresh and vibrant for our customers. Included within the refurbishment works was the refresh of Champagne Central which is hugely popular with people coming to the city.
“I would like to thank all of the team for their hard work in keeping Grand Central an award-winning destination and I look forward to meeting visitors, old and new, to the hotel over the coming months.”
The Golden Jubilee’s win means the hotel is now in the running for the national title at the 15th annual Scottish Hotel Awards ceremony, which takes place in Edinburgh on 22 April.
Bronagh Bell, Director of the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, commented: “As a meetings led hotel, our key focus is on quality and innovation in conferences, events and hospitality and are committed putting people at the heart of everything we do.
“Investing in services to provide free innovative meeting spaces, access to cutting edge technology, and working as an extension of our clients’ teams to provide well planned events, is what makes us stand out from other Hotels.
The title is the latest in a long line of accolades and awards for the four-star Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, which is celebrating 10 years as a member of Venues of Excellence this year.
Last year alone, they were named Business Hotel of the Year and received the award for Excellence in Hotel Conference Facilities at the Small Business Awards 2017; won the Success Through Sustainability award at the inaugural Working4Business awards; and received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the seventh year in a row.
