The prestigious Mercure Aberdeen Ardoe House Hotel and Spa picked up another award at theTrend Life With Style ceremony.
Trend Magazine’s annual award evening took place last Thursday at the Marcliffe Hotel.
Ardoe received the Hotel Star award at the fashion and lifestyle awards, which take place every year to highlight local successful businesses and their contribution to the lifestyle in the North-east.
Following a six-figure refurbishment programme, the four-star hotel has continued to go from strength to strength, and judges recognised the extensive work that the hotel has undertaken to transform it into one of the top ones in the region.
The award-winning Blairs restaurant is the most recent part of the hotel to be transformed, putting it back on the map as one of the best places to eat locally.
Plans are currently in place to refurbish the spa and fitness suite, and the transform of the remainder of the bedrooms into luxurious suites.
It is anticipated the work will take a year to complete, and a five-figure sum will be spent on each room.
Peter Sangster, general manager, said: “I am delighted that we have won this award.
“It is humbling that all of our hard work has been recognised’’
Banchory’s Deeside Brewery also saw success at the Trend award ceremony, picking up the Divine Dining award for Delis and Independent Food Suppliers.
Other winners included Union Square and The Tippling House bar.
