At the Hotel Review Scotland Awards Western House won:
1. Hotel of the Year
2. Wedding Hotel of the Year
3. Customer Care Hotel of the Year
And Ayr Racecourse general manager William Gorol won Hotelier of the Year.
This was followed by the Scottish Hotel Awards, where Western House lifted the premier prize – the Hotel of the Year. And William Gorol lifted the Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
In winning all the awards Western House also created a record by becoming the first hotel to win Wedding Hotel of the Year for three years running.
Speaking after the Scottish Hotel Awards at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Glasgow, William Gorol said: “What a great achievement this is for everyone connected with Western House Hotel. It’s not the norm for one hotel to win so many awards, and so this is really remarkable.
“We pride ourselves on customer care, so to win that award is very satisfying, and to land the Wedding Hotel of the Year three years on the trot is a truly magnificent achievement.
“I can’t speak highly enough of Western House General Manager Geoff Green and his staff. They deserve all the credit.”
