LONDON, May 31, 2011 -

Thistle Hotels has succeeded in striking gold by receiving five accolades
at The Scottish Hotel Awards 2011. The prestigious ceremony, dubbed 'The
Scottish Hotel Oscars', was held in Thistle Glasgow's ornate Grand Ballroom,
which proved to be the perfect setting for the evening as it was awarded the
prize of Function Venue of the Year.

It was an extremely successful night for Thistle, as its Aberdeen Altens
won a gold medal in the Business Performance Award, while
Thistle Aberdeen Airport
scooped the Events and Parties Award in the medium venue category. The
awards tally didn't stop there for Thistle's Aberdeen properties, as
individual gold medals were also awarded in the manager category to Alison
from Aberdeen Airport and Stephen Gow from Aberdeen Altens.

The Scottish Hotel Awards event is held annually, not only to celebrate
and encourage excellence in the hotel industry but also to raise funds for
Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland. Each year, the judging panel of
the awards receive thousands of nominations from both industry professionals
and members of the public, and all honours are independently researched ahead
of the big night.

Ewing Stewart, Thistle's regional operations director for Scotland Hotels
said: "I'm absolutely thrilled with the success of our Scottish team, not
just for the group and individual awards won but also for the fantastic
effort made to host the ceremony. It was an enjoyable evening held in the
best of spirits and we were very pleased to be able to support both the
awards team and HIT Scotland. I'm extremely proud of all our winners and
would like to congratulate everyone involved."
