A Norwich hotel is celebrating after it held onto its top platinum grading for its public toilets at the annual Loo of the Year Awards - as well as picking up a special Attendant of the Year award for cleanliness.
The Maids Head received an unannounced visit from a Loo of the Year Awards inspector and was assessed against 100 judging criteria including signage, décor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management.
Christine Malcolm, the hotel's general manager, said: 'We are very proud of to have retained our platinum status in the Loo of the Year Awards. This is excellent recognition for our housekeeping team, led by Mandy Ames.
'Erwin Mullari has overall responsibility for keeping the toilets looking at their best, and the Attendant of the Year Award is well deserved for all his hard work.'
During 2015, the hotel invested £140,000 in fully refurbishing all public toilets, including the addition of an accessible toilet near the Wine Press Restaurant and new men's toilets close to the Minstrel Suite, the main function room.
