An award-winning Aberdeenshire hotel has scooped the prestigious title of Britain’s Best Boutique Hotel.
Meldrum House Country Hotel & Golf Course was awarded the title in Luxurious Lifestyle Magazine’s 2018 Readers’ Travel Awards.
The hotel was also recognised in other categories including the Best Hotel for Design, Best Hotel for Golf and Best Hotel for Romance.
Peter Walker, general manager of Meldrum House said: “This is the first time we have been shortlisted for these awards and we’re delighted to win Britain’s Best Boutique Hotel.
“It’s an accolade for the entire team at Meldrum House and a great recognition for all our efforts.
“We work hard to ensure that from the moment you step through our door, guests know they are somewhere special and this award is testimony to that.”
Meldrum House has undergone a significant transformation in recent years, creating additional luxury bedrooms and a speciality whisky bar and club, as well as focusing strongly on its food offering and delivering exceptional service. This prestigious award further cements the venue as one of the top luxury hotels in Britain.
The awards showcase some of the most opulent hotels across the world and in the UK.
More than 30 nominees across 26 different categories were announced in February with readers being asked to vote for their favourites over a four-month period. A total of 64,971 votes were cast.
Nick Gilmartin, editor of Luxury Lifestyle Magazine, added: “Our Readers’ Travel Awards celebrate the very finest in luxury travel.
“I was particularly pleased to see a number of family-run hotels secure award wins.
“With somewhere the likes of Meldrum House Country Hotel, it shows you don’t have to be a billion-dollar hotel to offer your customers a luxury and personalised service.”
