A Biggleswade pub has won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets – in the Loo of the Year Awards 2023.
The Crown Hotel in the High Street has been awarded a platinum plus rating by inspectors.
The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of ‘away from home’ toilet provision across the UK.
Loo of the Year Awards inspectors made unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK, in order to judge them.
All the toilets are graded silver, gold, platinum, platinum plus or diamond with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.
The toilets are judged against numerous criteria, including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.
David Neil, manager at The Crown Hotel, a Wetherspoon pub said: “We are delighted with the award. Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in excellent
condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors.”
The Loo of the Year Awards 2023 managing director, Becky Wall, said: “The toilets at The Crown Hotel have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.
“The pub deserves its platinum plus award.”
The Loo of the Year Awards were launched in 1987 to focus the spotlight on recognising and rewarding the very best washrooms throughout the UK and Ireland. It is considered the ‘washroom standard’ and an award an established benchmark of washroom provision and compliance to national standards.
