The Atlantic Hotel, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary, has been highly commended in the 2020 Small Luxury Hotels of the World Awards for Best Gourmet Experience.
The award recognises The Atlantic Hotel, the only SLH member in the Channel Islands, as being among the finest independent hotels in the world.
The annual awards are chosen by a panel of experts from the worlds of luxury, travel, wellbeing and cuisine, with 18 winning hotels and 47 highly commended operations being chosen from over 400 member properties.
Commenting on the award, hotel owner and managing director Patrick Burke said: ‘We are very proud of our status as the sole Channel Islands member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and to be recognised as one the leading members for our gourmet experience is an honour indeed. We’re extremely lucky here in Jersey to have some of the finest produce right on our doorstep and in our Ocean Restaurant, executive chef Will Holland combines these wonderful ingredients in inventive and delicious ways.
‘2020 has brought us many challenges but we remain committed to achieving the highest possible standards across our hotel and restaurant. I’m extremely proud of our dedicated, highly professional team and am delighted to be able to share news of this award with them.’
In a further testament to the hotel’s offering, The Atlantic Hotel has also been shortlisted for two further national awards.
The Condé Nast Johansens awards for excellence acknowledge, reward and celebrate quality across the luxury hotels in their collection and they are a trusted mark of merit, recognised by consumers and travel professionals alike.
The Atlantic Hotel has been shortlisted for The Best Service Award alongside Cliveden House in Berkshire and The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences in London.
Winners of the award will be determined by a combination of local expert nominations, guest reviews and public votes through the Condé Nast Johansens website.
The hotel has also been shortlisted for a Food and Travel magazine Readers Award in the Hotel of the Year: Rural category. The awards identify the very best in the business and are nominated and voted for by Food and Travel magazine readers.
Mr Burke added: ‘Both Condé Nast Johansens and Food and Travel magazine are highly respected within the travel industry and well recognised by consumers around the world. To be shortlisted for these awards is an achievement in itself, particularly alongside some of the best hotels in the UK. It recognises the hard work and dedication of the entire team at The Atlantic who remain dedicated to providing the highest levels of service in these challenging times.’
