Craig Bancroft named Hotel Personality of the Year in the Imbibe Awards 2017
Chris Losh, Imbibe editor said:
‘A true hotelier, totally dedicated to the industry and to the development of young people within it; for our judges, there could only be one winner of this hotly contested category. It was not just our winner’s long-held commitment to excellence that impressed our judges. It was his passion. Put these two elements together and it’s easy to see how he’s risen from humble beginnings as a kitchen porter to becoming a huge personality within the industry.
‘If only we could bottle this man’s passion,’ said judge David Morgan-Hewitt. ‘He is a true hotelier’s hotelier.’
Craig Bancroft commented:
“After an amazing 17 days of Obsession, travelling to London perhaps wasn’t that high on my agenda, but to be awarded this prestigious award certainly made it worthwhile! It sets 2017 off on an award winning note, let us hope that we can continue in such a vein throughout 2017.”
