Sundial Group is celebrating another successful year with a total of 12 new awards and accreditations to add to its bulging trophy cabinet.

The meeting venue and conference hotel experts have seen their three venues recognised by both the meetings and leisure industries in 2013 with prestigious awards from BDRC Continental, Trip Advisor and Conference Centres of Excellence. In the last 12 months the group has also been awarded for its exceptional food with the venue's head chefs succeeding in local and international competitions.

Tim Chudley, Sundial Group's Managing Director said:

"The outstanding aspect of these awards is that so many express the opinion of real customers and guests. It is they that the dedicated individuals and teams in Sundial strive to delight.
