LONDON, May 31, 2011 -

- Whimsical categories recognise "Best Place for a Haggis" to "Best Place
for London Dry Gin" and everything in between

HotelClub (www.hotelclub.com), a world-leading global
accommodation website offering hotel and accommodation bookings, today
announced 20 winners from the United Kingdom and Ireland in the HotelClub
Hotel Awards 2011 (www.hotelclub.com/hotel-awards).

HotelClub Hotel Awards - marking their 5th year in 2011 - is the flagship
programme from HotelClub that will this year honour outstanding hotels around
the world in a range of categories which are designed to highlight unique
local experiences. Nine hotels were recognised in London from categories
ranging from 'Best Place for Celeb Spotting' to 'Best Place for London Dry
Gin.' With us all in the wedding spirit after Prince William and Kate's
nuptials, hotels in greater England received recognition in the category,
'Best for Romantic Rendezvous.' While on the back of England's ashes win,
other greater England hotels were acknowledged as 'Best for Test Cricket.'

Since Scotland itself is known as the birthplace of golf and haggis, five
Scottish hotels were recognised in categories ranging from 'Best Place for a
Haggis Breakfast' to 'Best Tee Off and 19th Hole.' And finally, in
recognizing all things Irish, three hotels in Ireland have been honoured in
categories from 'Best Place to Enjoy a Guinness' to 'Best Place to Stay for
the Gaelic Games.'
