The Atlantic Hotel has won the Independent Hotel of the Year 2014 award at The Caterer’s annual Catey Awards that took place at London’s Grosvenor House on Tuesday, 1 July 2014.
Widely regarded as the hospitality industry’s answer to the Oscars, the Cateys recognise the industry’s “highest flyers, strongest performers and hottest brands” and the awards ceremony is attended by the country’s leading hoteliers and restaurateurs.
More than 140 judges, selected for their expertise and industry knowledge, determine a shortlist for the Catey Awards after a rigorous initial selection process. Finalists must be able to demonstrate sound financial results, innovative marketing campaigns, exceptional standards of service and a clear strategy for future investment and growth.
The Atlantic Hotel was one of three hotels in the country shortlisted as finalists for the Cateys Independent Hotel of the Year Award. The hotel beat off competition from Congham Hall Hotel, Norfolk and the Great Northern Hotel, London to win this prestigious award. Previous winners have included The Pig in Hampshire, The Isle of Eriska, Argyll and Lucknam Park, Bath.
The award was presented to The Atlantic Hotel’s owner Patrick Burke who commented, “This is the first time in the history of the Cateys that a Jersey hotel has won the award and I am so proud to be bringing it home. It represents national recognition of the many years of hard work by our dedicated and talented team and puts the island firmly on the hospitality industry map at the highest level.”
