Tyrone Hotelier Awarded Business Woman of the Year

Corick House Hotel and Spa in Clogher is celebrating another awards success after hotelier Avril Robson was named Business Woman of the Year by the Ulster Tatler Awards.

Along with her brothers Andrew Beacom and Haldane McCleary own and run the Country House Hotel nestled in the countryside of the Clogher Valley.

Having realised their mother’s vision of creating the first four star hotel in Tyrone, the family recently completed an expansion which increased bedrooms to 43 and delivered a new spa facility.

The hotel also employes over 100 people. “Winning this award means so much.” said Avril. “Following in my mother’s footsteps as a business woman I had very big shoes to fill and to be awarded Business Woman of the year is testament to the values of hard work and determination to succeed that our mother instilled in all of us.”

Despite the latest refurbishments and expansion Avril says they have no plans to stand still.

“We have to stay ahead of the game,” she said.

“Hospitality is all about the guest experience and we are now in the position to offer the best possible guest experience in every department, whether it’s a wedding banquet, a dine and stay, spa package or a visit with family and friends to our restaurant.

“We have the team experienced to deliver at the very highest level. Now we just have to stay there. I personally would not be able to succeed to the degree that I have had I not got the support of my husband John and my four children.

“I dedicate my award to my family and my loyal staff who ensure every day that Corick House Hotel and Spa is and remains every thing it was meant to be a truly restored County House in the beautiful Clogher Valley.”
