Criton at the Scottish Hotel Awards

09th May 2018

On Sunday 22 April the Scottish Hotel Awards Gala Dinner took place at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa in Edinburgh and we were delighted to be the headline sponsor of the event.  At Criton we help accommodation providers enhance their guest experience and engage even more with their guests and it was great to celebrate in Criton’s hometown the very best of the Scottish hospitality industry.

The event welcomed over 400 guests from across the sector and 60 of them left the Sheraton holding a prize for their hard work and commitment to providing the best possible experience to their guests. As the Scottish tourism industry goes from strength to strength, with visitor numbers up 17% since 2011 and a constantly increasing visitor spend, an authentic and high-quality guest experience underpins the success of the Scottish sector.

Since 2003 the national winners are announced during a vibrant ceremony which this year saw on stage the Judging Chair Vivien Delvin and broadcaster Grant Scott, who did a fabulous job of hosting the most important evening in the Scottish hotelier calendar.  After some super food created by Sheraton Executive Chef Craig Hart and a very entertaining solo vocalist Barbara Bryceland, the evening finished with the presentation of the most important awards. We were also delighted to see our clients at The Dunstane and Auchrannie Resort being awarded respectively Best Boutique Hotel and Best Hotel Lodges.

The night, of course, ended with a few drinks and some dancing!
