A Sutton Coldfield hotel was among the winners in Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce’s first online awards ceremony.
Moor Hall Hotel & Spa claimed the Excellence in Hospitality award at last night’s virtual ceremony which was beamed from Chamber House in Edgbaston and viewed by more than 900 people.
Owned by the Webb family since 1961, the hotel has made widespread re-investment in many areas to ensure that the hotel retains its reputation for warm hospitality.
Green initiatives have included investment in a bio mass boiler supplying heating and hot water for 32 bedrooms.
Moor Hall is committed to investing in its employees’ welfare and achieved bronze accreditation with Thrive to Work.
It is also committed to supporting local charities.
Investment in facilities has included £100,000 on a new gym for guests and local members and hotel staff took part in career fairs and school presentations for the Sutton area as well as promoting local suppliers and being a champion for the Sutton area.
Moor Hall was among several Sutton Coldfield businesses to be nominated in the 12 award categories, alongside Power Minerals, Caviar & Chips, Taylor Herrick Recruitment and Shelforce.
Katie Hale, president of the Sutton Coldfield Chamber of Commerce, said: “To have five Sutton Coldfield businesses shortlisted for the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce was an amazing achievement in its own right.
“But for Moor Hall to bring home the Excellence in Hospitality Award was truly fantastic. It’s a true testament to their hard work and commitment to the community and a real boost after what has been a tough time for the hospitality sector.”
