These awards are hosted by North and South Lanarkshire Councils and recognise outstanding business achievements and success. This year saw record numbers of entrants making for strong competition in all the categories.
In the past year New Lanark Mill Hotel has gone from strength to strength having achieved a significant increase in turnover, occupancy and customer satisfaction. The hotel is one of the top listed hotels in the Lanarkshire area on the independent review website TripAdvisor.com.
John Stirrat, Hotel General Manager said:
“To receive such a prestigious award is truly fantastic. I am delighted to accept it on behalf of all the staff members who have contributed so much to the hotel’s success.”
The 38-bedroom hotel is set in stunning surroundings within a UNESCO World Heritage Site and facilities include a restaurant, health and fitness club, and banqueting and conference facilities. New Lanark Trust owns the hotel, and surpluses are used to help the continued restoration and conservation of the historic mill village.
Lorna Davidson, Director, New Lanark Trust said:
“The hotel’s performance in business terms is key to the ongoing development of this truly unique site. New Lanark attracts a significant number of visitors each year from all over the world, contributes to the local economy, and provides employment in this rural Lanarkshire area. This award is a great accolade for the hotel and New Lanark Trust. ”
