Isle of Man luxury Self catering

Proprietors of six Isle of Man self-catering properties celebrated at a special presentation held by the Department of Tourism and Leisure today (Friday 6th November), where they were honoured with Gold Accolades for providing top quality and service to visitors.

Martyn Quayle MHK, Minister for Tourism and Leisure, presented the awards at a ceremony in the Millennium Room of the Legislative Buildings.

The Gold Accolades were introduced this year, mirroring the scheme already operating in the UK by VisitBritain and, following assessments by the Island’s independent assessors ‘Quality in Tourism’, six self-catering accommodation premises achieved these prestigious awards.

They are: John and Shirley Kneale, Close Taggart Cottages, Ballaugh Curraghs for their two self-catering units; Andrew and Kathryn Scarlett, Ballakerkey Cottage, Glen Maye; Ian Fairbairn, the proprietor of The Hayloft, Ballasalla; Paul and Gill Fisher, Ballathona Farm Cottage, Andreas; and Fiona Anderson, who runs Knockaloe Beg Farm Cottage, Peel.

The accolade is in addition to their star grading but shows that the proprietors have gone above and beyond expectations with their quality and cleanliness but, more importantly, their standard of service and hospitality.

The Minister said, "I welcome this initiative to recognise the gold standard that has been achieved by these self-catering accommodation providers.

"The accolade reflects that they have acquired top marks and acknowledges their hard work and outstanding commitment to their guests.

"The Department of Tourism and Leisure is constantly working to improve the quality of service provided to visitors and it is excellent that the highest achievers have been recognised in this way.

"It is important that we continue to improve standards within the accommodation that the Island has to offer our visitors and these award winners are setting a standard for others to follow."

Ian Fairbairn of Grenaby Cottage said, "We are delighted the Hayloft has been awarded a Gold Accolade.

"We believe it reflects the high standards of accommodation and service the Grenaby Estates team strives to provide for all our guests. The introduction of these new standard measures is good news for tourism on the Island as the Industry seeks ways to grow and improve."

Shirley and John Kneale of Close Taggart Cottages, who have just completed their 14th successful year, commented, "The original concept was, and still is, to offer a ‘special holiday for two’ in accommodation that we would be delighted to find anywhere in the world, and to treat our guests as we would be treated ourselves."
