It has been a great start to the year for all at one of Waterford’s most popular hotels as the Fitzwilton Hotel were awarded the top prize at the annual Irish Accommodation Services Institute Awards for 2017 in Dublin.

Having achieved silver in this category in 2016, the Fitzwilton Hotel claimed the overall Supreme Award for 2017 recognizing the hotel as the best 4 star property in Ireland in exceptional standards across a range of services such as cleanliness, guest services, servicing of rooms, bathrooms and public areas.

Driving this successful achievement was Accommodation Manager Ms. Lorraine O’Brien who proudly stated 'we are over the moon to receive this very prestigious award. It is a wonderful achievement for the dedicated accommodation staff at the Fitzwilton Hotel and it is great to see their hard work and commitment recognised on a national level’.

Speaking highly of the accommodation team, General Manger, Geoff Dawson said 'over the past 2 years we have invested in an extensive refurbishment programme at the hotel involving all rooms, bar and restaurant. However, it must be said this is only half the battle. Keeping these rooms and public areas to an exceptionally high 4 star standard is where the hard work, training and dedication comes in and I could not be more proud of Lorraine and her team for this truly exceptional achievement which is very well deserved’.

The IASI represents the professional interests of the Accommodation sector promoting Best Practice Standards of excellence and a platform for Accommodation Managers to network and meet. All Hotels are independently assessed and only those who achieve the standard as set out by the IASI receive the prestigious awards.
