THE Admiral House Hotel has been awarded three stars by Quality in Tourism for the high standard of its service, food and accommodation.
The hotel, on Loch Promenade in Douglas, has also recently been awarded two rosettes by the AA for its new restaurant, JAR, which is the maximum possible rating for a restaurant on its first inspection.
Quality in Tourism is the independent body contracted by Isle of Man Tourism to award the independent grading and adheres to national standards known as the National Quality Assessment Scheme (NQAS), working in conjunction with VisitBritain.
The scheme, also operating in the UK, awards star ratings for all aspects of hotel management, from fire safety to the cleanliness of cutlery and the warmth of welcome guests receive. To have received three stars now puts the Admiral House Hotel in a very select group.
Rachel Camilleri, the Admiral House Hotel’s general manager, was thrilled with the news that they have been awarded three stars.
She said: ‘The Quality in Tourism inspectors are renowned for having incredibly high standards, but we were quietly confident that the review would go well.
‘We work very hard to make sure that all of our visitors receive the same high level of service all day, every day and it is fantastic news that we have been recognised for this.’
