An exciting awards season ahead for The Atlantic Hotel!

Publish date: 26 Sep 2023

4 AA Rosettes for Ocean Restaurant

We are delighted to announce that Ocean Restaurant has retained its highly prized AA Four Rosette rating for the fourth year running. The Atlantic Hotel has also been re-awarded Four AA Red Stars.

This year the AA Hospitality Awards were announced in a ceremony held at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House in London on Monday 25th September. Ocean Restaurant is one of only three restaurants in Jersey with an AA Four Rosette rating.

Owner and managing director of The Atlantic Hotel, Patrick Burke said, “There are very few restaurants that are honoured with four AA Rosettes or above and retaining this award for a fourth year demonstrates our ongoing commitment to excellence.”

“We are absolutely thrilled that our staff and their outstanding skills have been recognised by the AA. We feel particularly honoured to be part of an exclusive group of establishments which hold the coveted dual award of four AA Red Stars and four AA Rosettes.

“I am extremely proud of the entire team at The Atlantic Hotel who work so hard to maintain standards on a daily basis. As we look forward to 2024 we remain focused on a programme of continuous improvement that will help us to maintain our position as one of Jersey’s finest hotels and restaurants.”

Shortlisted for Independent Hotel of the Year Award

We are excited to have been shortlisted for the Independent Hotel of the Year Award at this year’s Independent Hotel Show.

The annual awards ceremony will take place at the Olympia National in London on the 16th October. The awards are designed to recognise the passion of independently spirited hoteliers who drive the sector forward and champion all the independent hotels across the UK and Ireland which make such amazing places to stay.

The Independent Hotel of the Year Award is presented to a hotel that has made a significant contribution to the independent hotel sector. The award recognises a hotel that embodies independent spirit, excellence, and innovation in creating exceptional guest experiences whilst pushing the boundaries expected of an independent hotel. Above all, the winner is an outstanding hotel that is committed to the development of their team, the success of their establishment, and the betterment of the industry.

This year the organisers received over 100 nominations with a panel of industry judges picking just eight for the shortlist. Alongside The Atlantic Hotel on the shortlist are the Aviator Hotel, Hampshire, The Cottage In The Wood, Malvern, The Fish Hotel, Broadway, The Grand, York, Grove of Narberth, Pembrokeshire, The Headland, Newquay and Ness Walk, Inverness.

The Independent Hotel of the Year Award is decided through a combination of online voting and marks from the esteemed panel of judges with the overall winner being crowned at the glittering awards ceremony in October.

Patrick Burke, Owner and Managing Director said: “I’m extremely proud that we are one of just eight hotels to have been shortlisted out of so many nominations this year. This is a fiercely competitive category and it’s an honour to be up against such prestigious properties from around the UK.”

“The independent spirit is something that is firmly embedded in the culture at The Atlantic as demonstrated by our team on a daily basis so these awards are particularly special to us. They also present a great opportunity to put Jersey on the map as a world class destination.”

Voting for the awards is now open and closes on Sunday 15th October with details to be found on the Independent Hotel Show website.

He is a champion of local produce and sustainable ‘nose to tail’ eating as well as promoting our industry within the local community.”

“His stand out achievement this year was the hugely successful Eat Jersey Food Festival which saw eight visiting chefs, including Michel Roux Jr, join him in the kitchen for a four day celebration of Jersey produce.”

Since their launch in 2007, the Hotel Cateys have celebrated the most successful hotels, hoteliers and hotel employees across the UK. The awards were created to recognise and reward those individuals and teams that work tirelessly to make sure their business delivers an exceptional guest experience, day in, day out.
