Hotelympia calls for UK’s most stylish new restaurants


Hotelympia’s Design Award has now launched and is calling for Britain’s most impressively designed new or refurbished restaurant to put themselves up for the title.

Hotelympia runs for four days from February 29 to March 3 2016 at ExCeL London and will announce the winner of the Design Award on the final day.

After finding the UK’s finest Hotel Suite in 2012 and most outstanding Hotel Interior in 2014, the award is now looking for the full service restaurant opened or re-designed since April 2014.

The eventual winner and two runners-up will be unveiled in front of a live audience of designers, hoteliers, restaurateurs, investors and members of the press at a reception held during Hotelympia 2016.

The final decision falls to a panel of expert judges including senior representatives from top design companies including SBID, KLC School of Design and BIID.

Hotelympia design consultant and co-ordinating judge, Stirling Johnstone said: “In past years with auspicious winners like The Mandarin Oriental and London Edition, Hotelympia’s Design Award has been synonymous with all that is great about hospitality design – timeless style, elegance, functionality and form. In 2016 we welcome beautiful restaurant design into the fold. The UK is brimming with new openings and, with the fight for consumer spend becoming ever more challenging, great design can really help set the tone from the outset. I urge restaurants who think they have what it takes to stand out from the crowd, to get in touch today.”
