A Fraserburgh pub’s toilet facilities has been given the highest accolade in the country at the Loo of the Year Awards 2015.

The Saltoun Inn has been awarded a platinum star rating by inspectors for the quality and standards of their toilets.

Donna Marie, The Saltoun Inn Manager, said: “I am delighted with the award. Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in first-class condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors.”

The toilets are judged against numerous criteria, including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.

All of the toilets are graded from bronze to gold with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.

The platinum rating is given only to outlets which offer “exceptional toilets.”

Mike Bone, The Loo of the Year Awards 2015 Managing Director, said: “The toilets at The Saltoun Inn have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.

“The pub richly deserves its platinum award – the highest individual award the judges can deliver.”

The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of ‘away from home’ toilet provision across the UK.

Authorised inspectors make unannounced visits to hundreds of toilets at sites across the UK, in order to judge them.
