Local boutique hotel Manorhaus will attend the National Tourist Awards next week following 16 years’ work in North Wales' tourism sector.

Organised by Visit Wales on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government, the National Tourist Awards will see businesses represent their region—North, South, East and West—in their nominated category, so the event is said to be highly important on the tourism industry calendar.

Manorhaus will represent North Wales at this year’s national awards following success for both its Llangollen and Ruthin hotels at the regional Go North Wales Awards in 2017. Manorhaus’ hotels in Llangollen and Ruthin won “Best B&B” and “Best Restaurant” respectively in 2017, with both hotels now competing at national level in the “Best B&B” and “Best Place to Eat” categories.

Christopher Frost, partner of Manorhaus, said: “We are thrilled to be nominated for the award. It is the culmination of 16 years of brilliant team-work and contribution to tourism in North Wales.

“The Award gives us the opportunity to shout about our hard-work, our success in the tourism industry that is vital for Wales—an industry that can be overlooked despite making a huge contribution to the economy.”

Hosted at the Celtic Manor Resort next Thursday, the evening will see another Denbighshire business, Coed-Y-Glyn Log cabins, in the limelight in the “Young Tourism Person of the Year” category. Tommy Davies is said to be a fantastic young entrepreneur and a worthy representative for Denbighshire and North Wales' young entrepreneurs.
