People in hospitality jobs at the Llandudno Lawton Court Hotel are sure to be feeling proud of their employer, after the venue won the international Bargain Hotel category in the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice awards 2015.
The hotel Travellers' Choice awards include international categories for Top Hotels, Bargain Hotels, Small Hotels, Romance, Family, Luxury and Bed and Breakfasts and Inns, as well as Best Service.
Winners are determined as a result of 12 months worth of opinions and reviews from TripAdvisor's international user base.
Lawton Court Hotel is a recently-opened venue, opened by Carol-Lynn Robinson and Ian Robinson, and run by Scott Lawton-Jones – the pair's son – and wife Hannah.
The same venue came second in the awards' international Small Hotels list and in the Service awards it was fourth internationally.
"What a great end to an already fantastic first year as owners of Lawton Court Hotel. To be recognised by TripAdvisor as a 2015 Travellers’ Choice Hotels award-winner across three different categories really is the icing on the cake," said Scott and Hannah Lawton-Jones.
"We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our guests from the past year for helping us to win this award, it’s the valuable reviews from them that help drive the business."
The other category with an overall UK winner internationally in the hotel awards was the B&B and Inn group. This was topped by North Yorkshire's Millgate Bed and Breakfast.
London, Blackpool and Llandudno were the top three locations by numbers of awards given in the UK.
In the global Top Hotels category, Gili Lankanfushi Maldives, situated in the Maldives, came first. London's Haymarket Hotel was the top venue in the UK for this category and 20th on the worldwide chart.
