It's dubbed The Oscars of the hotel industry, and The Midland in
Manchester, part of QHotels, is celebrating after being awarded
Group Hotel of the Year at the prestigious Caterer and Hotelkeeper
For nearly 20 years, The Cateys, as they are better known, have
cast a spotlight on the industry's high flyers and hottest venues,
so it's not surprising that The Midland has beaten off stiff
competition, after such a successful year.
Rewarding the hospitality industry exemplars, with recipients
nominated, selected and rewarded by their industry peers, the
overall winners were crowned at an awards ceremony at The Grosvenor
House in London on Tuesday night.
The Midland received the
sought-after industry accolade having come top of the Group Hotel
of the Year category, ahead of The Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh,
and The Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow who were also
Michael Magrane, General Manager at The Midland said: "We are
absolutely thrilled to have been crowned Group Hotel of the Year.
This award is the result of a team effort; everyone is dedicated to
creating the best possible experience for our guests and it's great
to receive such wonderful recognition."
He continued: "We've had an incredible year, our partnership
with Simon Rogan has resulted in two amazing restaurants and raised
our profile on a national level with the BBC documentary Restaurant
Wars, not to mention being shortlisted for City Hotel of the Year
at The Food and Travel Magazine Awards where we're up against The
Berkeley, and the Mandarin Oriental in Hyde Park. Most
importantly however, this award reaffirms The Midland's position as
one of the greatest grand hotels in the UK, and we're very proud to
bring this accolade to Manchester."
Join us in congratulating the team at The Midland!
