Accolade won by Macduff hotel recognised in Scottish Parliament
A Macduff hotel's win in the Scottish Hospitality Awards has been recognised in Holyrood.
The Knowes Hotel was winner of the North Region Hotel of the Year accolade.
Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson tabled a motion congratulating owner Wayne Stewart and his team on their success and also their efforts to showcase prime local produce and provide excellent service.
The hotel also gained a Taste Our Best badge from VisitScotland.
Mr Stevenson said: “I visited Wayne and Linda at the Knowes Hotel last August while meeting with several local businesses in Banff and Macduff which were either new starts or takeovers of existing businesses, and they briefed me on their recent extensive refurbishment and extension.
“It’s therefore great to see this investment and hard work being recognised at a national level and I’m pleased to assist with a little bit more recognition for the Knowes in Parliament.
"This is a tremendous achievement by Wayne, Linda and the team there and I wish them every future success going forward.”
