[N]orth Lakes Hotel and Spa has been shortlisted for a UK-wide award celebrating the most female friendly hotels in the country.
The SOLO awards, organised by UK business travel management company Redfern, recognises hotels that prioritise the needs of women business travellers.
Those shortlisted have all had secret visits by judges, with the winner announced next month.
General Manager at North Lakes Hotel & Spa, Antony Penny, said: “We’re delighted to be shortlisted for this award. We like to think that we offer the warmest of welcomes and high quality guest experience to everyone staying with us, whether they are here for business or leisure.
“It’s fantastic news that solo women business travellers recognise this and feel we go above and beyond when it comes to ensuring their needs are met.
“I’m very proud of the team here at North Lakes Hotel & Spa, who take so much pride in their work and it’s great that they have been recognised for the warm hospitality they provide.”
North Lakes Hotel & Spa opened in 1985 and has 84 bedrooms, a conference centre and spa facilities.
Kate Wimpeney, Chief Operating Officer at Redfern, said: “The response to our first SOLO awards has been fantastic and it’s been really encouraging to hear the reasons why women have nominated the hotels they have. As you might expect, safety and quality of facilities were big factors but it was also the small, personal touches that set some of the hotels apart.
“It’s been a great exercise in finding out how hotels in the UK are meeting the demands of the increasing number of female travellers, and all the hotels shortlisted should feel very proud that they are leading the way when it comes to female-friendly business travel.”
