Balbirnie House Hotel sets records – as they are named ‘Best-in-World’ in hospitality hat-trick!

The brigade at Balbirnie House Hotel have been enjoying well-deserved celebrations this week, as the hotel has scored an incredible hospitality hat-trick, with the global Haute Grandeur Awards naming them ‘Best Wedding Hotel on a Global Level’ for the third time. Balbirnie House previously received the same accolade in 2019 and 2021.

Company Director Gaynor Russell, who has overseen Balbirnie’s wedding planning department for two decades has said of the achievement: ‘we are truly delighted to receive this award for the third time, it’s a wonderful acknowledgement for all the hard work that goes into what our hotel brigade does, to look after each and every unique wedding’.

The accolade is a key accomplishment for the wedding team, who have enjoyed their busiest year to date, with a 25% increase in booked weddings at the hotel. Indeed, 2022 will see some 200 lucky couples saying ‘I do’ at Balbirnie and the bookings show no sign of slowing down – 2023 is set to continue to break records, whilst every Saturday in summer 2024 has already been booked.

The achievement is the only one of its kind globally and demonstrates Balbirnie House Hotel’s commitment to providing the ultimate wedding experience to the hundreds of couples who choose to celebrate the most important day of their lives at the hotel.
