In the 2022 edition, Absoluxe Suites has been shortlisted in two of the 19 award categories.

- Best Operator 1 to 50 units, which sees some serious competition from Beyond Apartments, Central Belfast Apartments, Cloud Apartments and Princes Street Suites, Edinburgh.

- Best Use of Technology category up against AltoVita, Housekeep, OWL, Reloquest and Superhog.

The panel of 15 judges now have to make some difficult decisions to make before the award presentations.

Those involved include; Eloise Hanson Editor of Boutique Hotel News, George Sell, Editor of Serviced Apartment News, Natalia Kolotneva, Head of European Living and Hospitality of LaSalle Investment Management, Markus Feller, Head Innovation & Transformation of SV Group and Hilary Lancaster, Founder of Fusion Interiors Group to name a few.

Carol Burrow co-owner and director of Absoluxe Suites remarked: "We didn’t expect to be shortlisted, let alone in two award categories.

"Obviously, we’re over the moon that the work we’ve done in creating Absoluxe Suites in Kirkby Lonsdale has been so well received within the industry and by our guests – it’s a real showcase for what we do.

"Now, all we can do is wait to see how we get on, but hopefully, we can bring an award back to Cumbria."

The awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday, May 10 2022 at The Montcalm.
