It is with our greatest pride and pleasure we announce that Smiths at Gretna Green Hotel has taken home two incredible wins from the Scottish Hotel Awards 2020 for Cocktail Bar and Wedding Hotel of the Year.
We are living in such unprecedented times as of recent, which is what makes it so much more wonderful to celebrate something positive. Thank you so much to our fantastic hotel team for all your hard work and dedication; we are incredibly proud of you.
Although this year’s Scottish Hotel Awards ceremony was a little different due to the current circumstances, organisers were keen to acknowledge and celebrate Scotland’s hard-working hotel and wedding teams. The awards were announced on the Scottish Hotel Awards official Facebook page, throughout the evening of Sunday 23rd April – which should have been the 17th Annual SHA Gala. Nominees were invited to join in raising a glass of wine or a dram of whisky at home and even host their own Zoom video party!
We were over the moon to hear our name announced for not one but TWO fantastic awards, which were:
The passion and exceptional work ethic shown by each member of our dedicated Smiths hospitality, bar and wedding teams is what makes our hotel guests, diners and wedding couples’ experiences at our hotel extra memorable.
Thank you to all of our incredible Smiths and Gretna Green family.
