“When you look at the locations and names of the hotels featured on this list, it is a great statement of confidence in the City’s hotel offering and an endorsement of the commitment and effort by everyone involved. This award shines a spotlight on the North West’s premium hospitality industry. It is a reflection of our staff’s enthusiasm, dedication, and commitment to excellent customer service. In my opinion, they are simply the best and that’s why Bishop’s Gate has been recognised by the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards four years in a row! We believe in delivering a genuine welcome to all of our guests and we aim to ensure every visit is special, so it is extremely encouraging to have this recognised and reflected in visitor feedback”.
Bishop’s Gate has won a host of other local awards since it officially opened in 2016. Last year, at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards, the hotel won the prestigious ‘NI’s Best Hotel Stay’ category which is a real indication of the premium standard visitors can expect. Ciaran adds:
“The Bishop’s Gate team strive to exceed expectations and I’m very proud of them and the customer experience they create. 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone in the hospitality sector. I am delighted to report that the month of July has allowed Bishop’s Gate Hotel to get back to business and to welcome those who are staycationing at home. We have embraced the challenges and we have worked tirelessly to ensure that we have a safe environment for our employees and guests, while still maintaining the Bishop’s Gate magic that we are renowned for”.
