Alison Lobb, managing partner of Morecrofts Solicitors, said:
Suites Hotel & Spa is arguably one of Merseyside’s best kept secrets but its quality and continued success has been reflected in such a large haul of awards this year.
The MIB Awards exists to shine a light into every corner of the independent business community and this year certainly hit the mark, with record numbers of entries from across Merseyside.
It was another incredible spent night celebrating some of the brightest independent businesses this region has to offer and my huge congratulations go to every nominee and winner.
