Hilton Belfast has been recognised as “Leading Hotel in Northern Ireland” at the European final of the renowned World Travel Awards 2014, voted for by travel agents worldwide. Its sister hotel Hilton Templepatrick Hotel & Country Club won “Leading Business Hotel in Northern Ireland” for a sixth time in succession and set a new record for consistent standards of product and service.

At the Europe Gala Ceremony, which took place in Athens, Greece, the two hotels were two of 24 Hilton Worldwide properties in Europe to receive an accolade.
