Balbirnie House Hotel in Markinch has been praised by MSP for mid-Fife and Glenrothes Jenny Gilruth after receiving a hat-trick of awards.
The hotel, which was named Europe’s Best Destination Wedding Hotel, Best Function Venue in Europe, and Best Romantic Hotel in Europe at the Haute Grandeur Awards last month, received a letter from the politician congratulating the team on its triple win.
Managing Director Nicholas Russell, who travelled to Bangkok to collect the awards, said: “It has been an incredible honour for my wife, Gaynor, and I to represent Balbirnie’s brigade, and Scotland’s amazing Hospitality sector.
“We’re so very proud to be bringing three global awards back to Markinch village, and we dedicate the collection today, to the people who made it happen. Our management team, the entire brigade past and present, our many suppliers, and our customers.”
He also passed along his thanks to Gilruth, saying: “it was so very kind of Jenny to take the opportunity to highlight Balbirnie, and our brigade’s role within tourism in Fife.”
