A Liverpool venue has clinched an accolade for being the hotel of the year following a £4 million refurbishment.
VenueVerdict has honoured the Atlantic Tower Hotel by Thistle as the No. 1 Hotel after it beat of competition from over 200 other businesses.
The award was given in part for being a first-class meetings and events venue and was judged by previous customers filling out online surveys.
David Daly, general manager of the Atlantic Tower, says it is recognition for the team's hard work at the Liverpool venue.
"At the heart of everything we do is the guest experience and Thistle is constantly reviewing its standards to ensure they fit with customer needs," he adds.
The hotel recently reverted to its former name after unveiling a contemporary new look and celebrating its 35th anniversary.
Customers rated venues on likelihood to use in future, likelihood to recommend, change in opinion of the brand based on event experience and overall satisfaction.
After the revamp Mr Daly said the hotel is one of the largest in the city and the local people have a "great deal of affection" for it.
