The Scottish Hotel Awards, which are now in their 8th year, aim to recognise “exceptional achievement” in the Scottish hotel industry.
Held on 27 March, the awards this year included almost 180 categories, recognising a range of hotel services, including design, management, welcome, reception, housekeeping, dining, events and facilities, and general ‘excellence’.
Nominations for the awards, which were recently described by First Minister Alex Salmond as being “the flagship awards for the hotel industry”, take place throughout the year with thousands of people both inside and outside the industry voting for their chosen winners.
