The Scottish Hotel Awards ceremony was held on the 1st of March 2009 for the sixth time and this time there was a winner from Islay in the category National Awards - Island Hotel of the Year 2009. And that winner is the Bowmore based Harbour Inn & Restaurant. Congratulations to the staff of the Harbour Inn, well done! On the website of Scottish Hotel of the Year you can read more about the awards, the other prize winners and see some pictures.
Also interesting is the possiblity to nominate your favourite Islay hotel and/or guesthouse. This could perhaps help some other Islay Hotels to have the possibility to win an award, which is of course good publicity for the island. If you take a look at this years winners you can find out in which categories you can make a nomination.
