A Sheffield hotelier said she is 'delighted' after scooping top honours in the Good Hotel Guide.
Tina Carr, owner of Brocco on the Park, Ecclesall Road, said she was 'extremely proud' after her establishment was named City Hotel of the Year 2016.
The Good Hotel Guide awards 10 Césars each year to the most celebrated hoteliers who have demonstrated excellence in their field.
Known as the Oscars of the hotel industry, the awards are named after Cesar Ritz.
Brocco on the Park, the only hotel in Yorkshire to have been recognised in this year’s César awards, was opened in 2014 by Tiina Carr.
Tiina said: “We are absolutely delighted to have achieved this award, for both ourselves and the city of Sheffield.
"We have worked extremely hard to bring some special to the city and are extremely proud of what we have accomplished.”
Brocco on the Park was described by the judges to offer 'Scandi-chic interior and buzzy neighbourhood kitchen serving adventurous cuisine.
Judges concluded: "This handsome Edwardian villa has eight bedrooms and welcomes guests with cupcakes."
Co-editor of the Good Hotel Guide, Adam Raphael, said: “The Guide is an unbiased selection of the best hotels, inns and B&Bs with personality and character across the UK and Ireland. Hotels are chosen solely on merit and the entries are rewritten each year. Readers’ reports are painstakingly scrutinised, and reports from inspectors are based on anonymous visits."
M. Astella Saw, also a co-editor, added: “This year’s César award winners reflect the rising standards of hotel-keeping across the country. All 10 properties have been chosen for their immaculate service, warm welcome, fine hospitality and memorable individuality.”
