  • Scottish Thistle Awards Regional Finalists!
  • Hello Everyone!

    There has been much excitement in the office this week; after weeks of waiting the shortlists for the Scottish Thistle Awards have been announced and our name is on that list!  This is the first time we’ve been entered into the awards so to reach a finalists stage is a huge honour.  Part of the North East & Tayside Region we have been selected in the Best Self-Serve Accommodation category.   Our fellow finalists are both excellent providers and we’re thrilled to be sitting alongside them.

    It did get me thinking about what we do and why we do it. Awards are wonderful let’s be honest, we all love to receive recognition for what we do and it’s a great way for visitors to the area to distinguish between choices.   Award-Winning has a lovely ring to it!

    But that’s not why we do it; it’s not why we spend time on the little details, sourcing the best partners and training our team to our high standards. The reason we do all of these wonderful things that have all played a part in this most recent accolade is simple; it’s you! We want you to relax in luxury from the moment you arrive. We all work hard here – we know as well as anyone does, how much one looks forward to a well-deserved break or holiday.  Knowing that we can play a part in peoples’ enjoyment of Perthshire and precious time away is a privilege.

    Anyone who has spent time with us at Alexander Residence in Perth would, I hope, tell you about their truly wonderful experience. We are consistently rated “Excellent” on trip advisor; we currently enjoy a 5 star listing and are ranked first in our “speciality lodging in Perth” category.  This is something we take very seriously - as Perth’s only 5 Star Accommodation providers we really strive to give our guests that little bit extra.  Our feedback tells us we’re getting this right but, I am happy to say, we never rest on our laurels and are always looking for new ways to give added value and extra WOW!

    Our most recent Trip Advisor review said this.

    “Top quality accommodation in superb location. Staff from booking through to arrival could not have been more helpful. Accommodation and contents of superior quality. Highly recommended. The size of the apartment is amazing and ideal for groups of friends or family staying. We stayed in the Barossa and it had four bedrooms and the most amazing kitchen and luxury bathroom. Nice touches in decor and accessories.”

    So, the award is wonderful. Being recognised by your industry is a great achievement but being appreciated by your customers is even greater. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and custom.   I am now off to plan my glitzy outfit for the awards do and ponder over how to wear my hair for the night!  Is an Angelina style acceptance speech too much do you think?!
