Hotel Cateys 2019 Shortlist Revealed

Since 2007, Hotel Cateys recognises and celebrates the most successful hotel operators, hoteliers and their employees in the UK. The awards were designed to reward those individuals and teams that work tirelessly to make sure their business delivers exceptional guest experience.

The awards cover various aspects of the industry from hotels with the ‘Best Use of Technology’ to ‘Front of House Team of the Year’.

This year also sees the introduction of two new awards – Hotel Chef of the Year award and Hotel Restaurant Chef. Therefore, the expansion of categories is to ensure recognition is given across the various roles in the hotel industry.
