The title of Hotel Manager of the Year was one of 17 awards distributed on Friday evening and collecting the award in person, Jonathan said:
“It’s great to have won the award. It’s been an exciting year in hoteling. I’ve been lucky to have a board of directors whole-heartedly support continuing development at the Stormont Hotel, and I have to thank Howard Hastings for his support over the past year.”
