Double Win for The Fitzwilliam

The five-star Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast recently scooped two top honours at the Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards 2017, taking home the title of ‘Hotel of the Year 2017’, and General Manager Cian Landers was named ‘Best Hotel General Manager’.

The awards were bestowed towards the end of what has been a memorable year for the hotel which was awarded a five-star rating under the Tourism NI accommodation grading scheme, completed a £2million refurbishment and was granted planning permission for a £6million extension.

The inaugural Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards ceremony, which took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast on the 25 September, celebrated the very best of Northern Irish hospitality. They were organised and hosted by Creative Oceanic who have been delivering award ceremonies over the last seven years in eight cities across the UK.

Irfan Younis, CEO of organizers Creative Oceanic, said: “We are honoured and delighted to have such great finalists and winners representing the Northern Irish hospitality industry and enhancing its reputation nationally and internationally.”

“These were the first Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards. They are a true reflection of the talent in Northern Ireland and we want to make sure that the hard work of hospitality professionals doesn’t go unnoticed.”

Commenting on the double award win, General Manager Cian said, “I am extremely proud to have been named Hotel Manager of the Year. It is such an honour to have been individually recognised and it is equally as rewarding for our team to receive an accolade like Hotel of the Year.”

“Every member of staff works exceptionally hard and this award is a testament of their dedication and the excellent five-star service they provide to offer guests a personalised and truly memorable and indulgent experience.”
