Glenapp Castle wins Hotel Catey award

Glenapp Castle has won Hotel Restaurant Team of the Year at this year’s Hotel Catey Awards 2019.

The Ayrshire venue has had a good haul this year when it comes to awards. Fresh from scooping up the award for Independent Hotel of the Year at the CIS awards and picking up another at the Boutique Hotelier Awards, the castle – in particular its restaurant team – has now been rewarded with a famed Hotel Catey Award.

The Hotel Cateys are the industry standpoint when it comes to excellence. Since their launch in 2007, the awards have celebrated ‘the most successful hotels, hoteliers and hotel employees across the UK’.

Jill Chalmers, managing director at Glenapp Castle, said: ‘I am absolutely thrilled that the team has been awarded Hotel Restaurant Team of the Year. The food and service at Glenapp is always excellent, and for this to be honoured by the Hotel Cateys is the perfect reward for all of the team’s hard work. I’m so pleased and very proud – well done.’

Glenapp Castle is a 17-bedroom luxurious castle hotel tucked away on the breath-taking Ayrshire coast, Scotland. The castle is hidden away in 36 acres of stunning gardens and woodland. Guests find themselves getting lost within the estate, or escaping to the majestic Scottish countryside for long walks and beautiful views of Ailsa Craig and Northern Ireland.

The hotel’s restaurant team is made of true hospitality professionals, passionate about providing an outstanding personal service. The team prides itself on using local produce for its freshness and excellent quality that is available in Ayrshire.

All the restaurant’s fish and shellfish are line-caught, or hand-dived off Scotland’s west coast, and the game comes from local estates from across Ayrshire. Beef, lamb, and pork are farmed only 17 miles from the castle.

The restaurant team is totally committed to providing excellent food and service and, with such hard work, it comes as no surprise that they have been granted this prestigious Hotel Catey award.

The Hotel Catey Awards 2019 took place on Friday at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge.
