Black Boy Inn is delighted to have been awarded Platinum Grade in the Loo of the Year Awards in the 2014 awards ceremony.
The Loo of the Year Awards and associated Attendant of the Year Awards for cleaning staff have been identifying the best in Britain since 1987 and are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide ‘away from home’ facilities for staff, customers and visitors.
Every entry received an unannounced visit from an authorised Loo of the Year Awards Inspector and was assessed against 100 judging criteria – including signage and décor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management. Every loo receives a grading ranging from Bronze to Platinum and Gold and Platinum winners are short listed for one of a number of National Awards covering England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands.
The 2014 Awards were sponsored by Clos-o-Mat, The Toilet and Washroom Cleaning Company, Ophardt and are supported by the four national tourism bodies in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
1424 entries were received this year, across the sixty separate entry categories of the competition, with many first time entries from establishments joining the increasing number of providers who submit their toilet facilities for an annual, independent assessment.
