Conde Nast Traveler unveiled this week the winners of its 31st annual Readers' Choice Awards, ranking the best hotels, resorts, cities, islands, airlines, airports, and cruise lines in the world.

Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI) has secured the top two spots in this year’s Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards, with luxury properties Cromlix and Inverlochy Castle Hotel recognised as the leading hotels in the UK.


The Readers' Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. This year the publication received a recording-breaking number of responses from nearly half a million readers who rated their travel experiences to provide a full snapshot of where and how we travel today. 


Cromlix in Perthshire took home the number one position while Inverlochy Castle Hotel in Fort William came in at a close second in the 31st annual awards. Both hotels managed by the same company and now recognised as the top two hotels in the UK. 




Norbert Lieder, Managing Director of ICMI, commented: “We are extremely proud of the award wins for Cromlix and Inverlochy Castle Hotel. It’s a great achievement to win not one but two Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Awards and we are very grateful to everyone who voted for our properties. 


“At ICMI we strive to offers guests a unique and luxury experience that will provide a lasting impression and the recognition is token to our efforts. I would like to thank all of our staff who consistently work hard to maintain these high standards and offer guests the very best visit.” 


The longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry, the awards are commonly known as ‘”the best of the best of travel”. The awards are published exclusively on the Condé Nast Traveler website and celebrated in the November issues on newsstands on October 16.
