The Carrow Road hotel scooped the Great Hotels Guest Love and an award for excellence at a ceremony in Dublin.

Both awards were voted for by guests.

General manager, Bill Heath, said: “The team work so hard here and they have a laugh.

“Some of our guests commented that the hotel was like a home from home. We get a lot of repeat guests.

“We knew we had been shortlisted for the Great Hotels Guests Love award so we had a one in eight change of winning it.”

The awards were presented by Sir Chris Hoy.

“He did a question and answer session afterwards which was so inspiring,” Mr Heath added.

He said the team are now aiming for the Hotel of the Year title at next year’s awards.
