Restaurant Manager of The Year Award goes to Ballyrobin Country Lodge at Exhilarating Evening at Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards

The second Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards 2018 welcomed over 200 guests at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast, on Monday 8th October in a memorable celebration of the country’s hospitality industry. It was a night of celebration for Ballyrobin Country Lodge once again as Man-Ting Chan picked up the Restaurant Manager of the Year Award. In addition congratulations to everyone as we also received a Highly Commended Recognition award.

This follows last year’s success when Ballyrobin Country Lodge won the Hotel Restaurant of the Year Award at both the Food Awards Northern Ireland and the Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards for 2017

The Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards 2018 acknowledged the achievements of local professionals and establishments, from restaurants, bars and hotels to festivals and venues that have stand out from the rests due to their dedication to the customer satisfaction.

The winners, who are chosen by members of the general public, are a true reflection of the commitment, quality and impeccable customer service that flow in the Northern Irish hospitality industry.

The black-tie event was hosted by Paulo Ross. He welcomed on stage talented individuals and businesses, recognised for the efforts they put into ensuring that their guests enjoy themselves. The awards provided a platform to thank those who constantly deliver memorable experiences to their clients and make the country a friendly place for visitors.

A Spokesperson for the Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards 2018 said: “The hospitality industry plays a vital role in enhancing the country’s tourism and reputation. These professionals have dedicated their whole career in delivering memorable experiences and making Northern Ireland a welcoming place for tourists and visitors. The awards recognised successful individuals that work within businesses where excellence is a standard and whose sole aim is to meet their customers’ needs and expectations.”

Elaine Kelly, General Manager of The Ballyrobin Country Lodge was naturally delighted to have received yet another award and commented:

“We are honoured and delighted to have won another award after our success last year at the Food Awards Northern Ireland and The Hospitality Awards in 2017.
