The Welsh Mountain Zoo has scooped the ‘Best Day Out’ award at the Welsh Hospitality Awards, beating off stiff competition from across Wales.
The Colwyn Bay-based Zoo joined representatives of hospitality ventures, business and organisations to celebrate the achievements of the industry during 2017.
The black tie event was held at Portland House Hotel in Cardiff where over 400 delegates gathered. Organisers stated that they received thousands of entries across x categories encompassing the many diverse parts of the industry.
Nick Jackson, Director at the Welsh Mountain Zoo – National Zoo of Wales commented: “It’s wonderful to be recognised by any body or organisation at a formal ceremony such as this.”
“It’s important that we continue to raise awareness of the Zoo on a national scale and fantastic to see our efforts rewarded and celebrated in this way. The Zoo is a very special place that is loved by many across Wales and indeed the rest of the UK. The entire team work tirelessly thought the year to provide a wonderful home to our animals, support conservation and ultimately offer a wonderful day out. This award speaks volumes of our collective efforts!”
