Chester Hotel celebrates after winning North-east Hotel of the Year award

Aberdeen’s The Chester Hotel has struck gold at the Chef and Restaurant of the Year Awards.

The luxury venue received the North East Hotel of the Year accolade for a third time on Monday, adding to its growing list of accolades.

Since its opening in 2014, The Chester Hotel has received more than 20 awards and is the only venue in the city to be awarded a four-star silver rating from the AA.

In addition to this, the hotel has two AA Rosettes and a recommendation in the Michelin Guide for fine dining in its IX Restaurant.

The Chester Hotel general manager Stephen Gow has said the hotel’s latest honour underlines their commitment to delivering first-class experiences to guests.

He said: “The hotel opened in 2014 and winning ‘Hotel Restaurant of the Year’ for a third time is a worthy achievement which couldn’t have happened without our dedicated and very hardworking team.

“We are extremely proud of all of our kitchen team, who consistently deliver excellence and who are helping shape and influence the fine-dining scene in Aberdeen.”

The award ceremony is organised annually by Aberdeen-based Hospitality Training with its judges panel led by Bruce Sangster, formerly of Michelin-starred Sangster’s in Elie, Fife.

The winners were announced on Monday evening at Aberdeen University’s Elphinstone Hall.
