Organised by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board in partnership with Diageo Northern Ireland, the tourism awards cover a total of 10 categories and three special awards. Belmore Court and Motel was awarded Highly Commneded in the Serviced Accommodation section.
There was an extra edge to this year's ceremony as it reflected the successes and achievements of 2012, a massive year for tourism as a result of the ni2012 campaign.
Speaking at the event, Tourism Minister Arlene Foster said:"Tonight we can applaud the best in tourism and all that is great about our industry after what I believe was one the most significant years in its history.
NITB Chairman Howard Hastings said: “The big lesson of ni2012 is that we have demonstrated on a global platform that we can successfully open world-class attractions and we can run spectacular events. And in delivering on this we can all work together and do so with pride. From a confident vantage point, we can therefore look ahead to 2013 and to 2014 where there are many more opportunities for Northern Ireland to shine and for tourism to prosper."
Now in its 11th year, it is TripAdvisor’s biggest-ever Travellers’ Choice campaign with the awards identifying the most outstanding properties worldwide, in the categories of Top Hotels, Luxury, Bargain, Service, Small Hotels and B&Bs. Unlike any other hotel honours, TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice winners are based on millions of reviews and opinions covering more than 650,000 hotels collected in a single year from travellers around the world. A winner in Northern Ireland is Belmore Court & Motel. This Enniskillen hotel has ranked number 15 in the UK’s Best Bargain category. With rooms from just £39 a night and glowing reviews from guests it’s a worthy winner.
Northern Ireland has double reason to celebrate – two hotels have won a Travellers’ Choice award this year.
“For the eleventh year running, these awards recognise the cream of the crop when it comes to hotels both in the UK and across the globe, according to those that really matter - travellers themselves,” commented TripAdvisor spokesperson, Emma Shaw.
TripAdvisor has named 6,297 award-winning properties around the world this year, with dedicated lists now covering 82 countries and 9 regions worldwide.
