The team has worked very hard over the last year to continue to grow the property’s reputation in the heart of the capital city of Wales which has included launching the new Metropole Lounge in the hotel this month.

    “Tourism is an important part of the Welsh economy so it is vital that we all play our part in improving the industry for quality and service to ensure that Wales can compete on a national and international platform.”

    The National Tourism Awards for Wales are designed to recognise the value of the tourism industry to Wales and to reward those who offer a high quality, warm Welsh welcome to visitors. The awards were relaunched this year after last being held in 2007 and the winners were announced at a ceremony in Cardiff hosted by television presenter Sarra Elgan.

    Chris Osborne, chair of the Wales Tourism Alliance, said, “We have a great deal to be proud of and the awards give us an opportunity to showcase the very best that Wales has to offer. With visitors becoming ever more discerning and more people choosing to stay closer to home for their holidays, the quality of our product becomes an increasingly important selling point and one that will bring visitors to us time and time again.”
