TWO Glasgow hotels have been recognised at the regional finals of the Scottish Hotel Awards.

Blythswood Square Hotel won 5 Star Business Hotel and 5 Star City Hotel for the west coast, while the Grand Central Hotel scooped Breakfast Hotel of the Year.

A number of their staff were also awarded with People of Excellence awards including Blythswood Square Pastry Chef of the Year Lauren Mcavoy. The Grand Central team also won two individual awards – Housekeeper of the Year, Lynne Doyle and Wendy Johnston for Event Individual of the Year.

Murray Thomson of Blythswood Square Hotel, said: “Winning three titles at the Scottish Hotel Awards is a real honour for the entire team at Blythswood Square. The hospitality sector in Glasgow is so vibrant so it is a great time to be working in the industry. We couldn’t be prouder of our superb pastry chef Lauren.”
