Restaurant Manager at the Victoria Hotel Malta receives MTA Star Award

The Restaurant Manager of the Copperfields Restaurant, one of the top Malta Restaurants, was the top STAR in food and beverage for 2009.

Online PR News – 27-March-2010 – – Sliema, SLM ( Onlineprnews ) March 27, 2010 - Charles Abela, Restaurant Manager of The Copperfield's Restaurant at the Victoria Hotel Malta,, was declared 2009 winner in the Food and Beverage category of the 5th Special Thanks And Recognition (STAR) Awards. This award recognises the exceptional quality of service provided by Mr Abela while being testament to the exceptional service clients receive at The Copperfield's Restaurant in particular and at the Victoria Hotel in general.

Mr Abela was conveyed the award during a ceremony held at a local hotel on the 24th February 2010. This year’s edition of the STAR Awards bestowed 14 STARs for excellence in service. Competition was plenty as the winners were drawn from a list of 11,000 nominations sent in by tourists themselves during 2009. This makes Mr Abela’s award even more important and valuable.

The STAR Awards are an initiative by the Malta Tourism Authority aimed at giving public recognition to all those who work directly or indirectly in the tourism industry.

Also worthy of note is the 2nd prize awarded to Ms. Ursola Sant, an employee at the Victoria Hotel who was nominated for the Worker of the Year Award. Fifteen nominations had been submitted in this category overall, which also forms part of the STAR awards and is aimed specifically at exemplary workers within the hotel sector who excel both in the way they perform their duties and their general attitude towards work. The nominations for this category can be submitted by hotel employees of any grade who wish to nominate a fellow worker they think deserves the award.

This is not the first time that The Victoria Hotel has won similar awards, and neither is it the first time similar accomplishments have been achieved by hotels belonging to the AX Group. Indeed last year one of the winners was Adriana Farrugia, from The Palace.
