Craig Ewan, who manages The Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness, was presented with the accolade yesterday afternoon (Thursday 26 September) at the awards ceremony which was held as part of Highland Business Week 23-27 September to recognise some of the area’s best businesses and their staff.
The Best Local Hero award recognises those with commitment and passion for the area as well as for the industry, and Craig’s leadership skills as well as his ability to go above and beyond the call of duty were highlighted as some of the best in the business.
Craig said: “It’s an honour to be presented with this award and I have to thank my team for their ongoing support, as the hotel wouldn’t achieve its high levels of customer service without everyone involved.”
Set within four acres of landscaped grounds just one mile from the centre of Inverness, the four-star Kingsmills Hotel is already the proud recipient of the Highlands and Islands Best Hotel Award and is perfect for both business and leisure breaks.
As a privately owned mansion house hotel with 134 rooms – many with private balconies and patios or overlooking the neighbouring golf course – the award-winning hotel effortlessly combines its extensive history of the traditional main house with the contemporary designed Kingsclub and Spa to create an unforgettable experience for its guests.
The Kingsmills is currently adding a new 410 sqm event space, along with an additional 38 rooms that will be open in early 2014. The spacious and luxurious rooms provide guests with super king-sized beds, sumptuous duvets and stylish textiles, as well as a separate bath and walk-in shower.
