Thank you to all those that took part in the assessment day - anorther record-breaking year. Having analysed all the judges' scores we can confirm that the finalists are as follows:

Under 90 Rooms
Belmore Court & Motel
Bushmills Inn Hotel
Salty Dog Hotel & Bistro
Tara Lodge
Ten Square Hotel Belfast
Wellington Park Hotel

90 Rooms and Over
Europa Hotel Belfast
Holiday Inn Belfast City Centre
Holiday Inn Express Belfast
Ibis Hotel Belfast City Centre
Park Inn by Radisson Belfast
Slieve Donard Resort & Spa

The standard was as high as ever and the housekeepers performed brilliantly across the range of four tasks. The judges have, however, asked us to again point out one issue that some teams lost points over. Allowing duvets or pillows to land on the floor is not considered good practice, both from a hygiene point of view and also as a trip hazard to the housekeepers.

Each finalist property will receive two free tickets to the Gala Dinner on 22nd March in the Clayton Hotel. Additional tickets, at a cost of £50 each (inc VAT), can be purchased by contacting Anna in the Federation office on 028 9077 6635 or via anna@nihf.co.uk. All other entrants are encouraged to come along for a fun night out.

Finalist properties will receive a surprise visit by a judge over the next three weeks. They will identify themselves and ask to see a selection of bedrooms and public areas.

The Federation would like to thank all those who came along to the assessment day, the judges who gave their time and to our sponsors: Tourism Northern Ireland, Bunzl Rafferty Hospitality Products, Ecolab, Robinson Services and King Koil.
