Thornton Hall in running to be voted best in our region

By Mary Wells

The 4 star Thornton Hall Hotel at Thornton Hough has been shortlisted for ‘Hotel of the Year’ and ‘Restaurant of the Year’ in the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2019.

The awards recognise the very best of Liverpool City Region’s visitor economy, spanning hotels, restaurants, apartments, visitor attractions, bars, events, cafes, tourism experiences, and entertainment venues.

This year, Thornton Hall and its fine dining restaurant, The Lawns, have been shortlisted for ‘Hotel of the Year’ and ‘Restaurant of the Year’ respectively.

Over the past five years, substantial investment has helped boost the hotel’s reputation and offer, including improved spa facilities and extensive interior refurbishment across bedrooms, function rooms and The Lawns restaurant.

In 2018 alone, the hotel won an award for ‘Best Tasting Afternoon Tea of the Year’, with The Lawns restaurant recognised as ‘Best Fine Dining Venue in Merseyside’ at the Lux Food and Drink awards.
