General manager of the George Hotel Altaf Khan said: “We are very proud of the offering at The George Hotel across our accommodation and dining with our talented restaurant team led by Vincenzo. This award is a testament to all our efforts and couldn’t come at a better time as we also celebrated our 10th year in business late last year. Our dedicated team of staff ensure every one of our guests has the best possible experience while at The George Hotel, and we’re delighted that it has been recognised.”

Reacting to their award, Brigid Bourke, marketing executive at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa said: “It is a testament to the hard work of the team at the hotel, who are the backbone of the entire operation.

“​In the past number of years, we have seen an incredible growth in business as a result of such dedication from our staff, positive customer experience and continued investment into the hotel’s many amenities and services,” Ms Bourke said in a statement.
