College Court awarded ‘Best Hotel’ at the Leicestershire Tourism Awards

On Thursday 29 November, the team from College Court and Leicester Conferences attended the Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards. Now in its eighth year, the awards are organised by Leicestershire Promotions and strive to highlight the best tourism businesses in Leicestershire. College Court and Leicester Conferences were delighted to have been finalists in six of the 22 categories.

College Court, the University of Leicester's dedicated conference centre and hotel, was thrilled to be awarded as 'Highly Commended' in the category 'Best Customer Service', and 'Rising Star' for Chris Hewitt, Front of House Manager. These are fantastic achievements, and testament to the high levels of customer service the team strive to deliver on a day-to-day basis.

College Court then went on to be awarded 'Best Hotel' in the 'Most Enjoyable Stay' category, with the judge stating: "Recognising that it is the experience that you deliver to your guests that matters the most, the judges had no hesitation in agreeing this year's winner."

Steve Crawford, Centre Director at College Court, says: "I am delighted, honoured and humbled that College Court has enjoyed further success. To be awarded Hotel of the Year and be recognised for our excellent customer service, and to see Chris Hewitt awarded the Rising Star, has rounded off an amazing month of awards for us.

"We will never rest on our laurels, as we wish to exceed our customers' expectations and make every stay with us a memorable one."

The Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards are an incredible end to both an amazing November for awards, and a great year. November also saw College Court recognised as 'Best Team' at the MIAList Awards, and enjoy further success at the Academic Venue Awards, winning 'Best Catering Service'.
