JD Wetherspoon has won ten accolades at the Loo of the Year Awards 2014.

Earlier this year 437 of the operator’s 926 pubs gained recognition for the quality of their toilets.

The managed pub company has now picked up the UK Accessible Toilets Entries Award for England and the UK Accessible Toilet Entries Trophy, meaning the loos comply with the current Equality Act regulations, as well as being clean, hygienic, well maintained and fit for purpose.

It also triumphed in the Attendant of the Year In House Cleaning Team Award for England and the UK and the UK Attendant of the Year in House Cleaning Team Trophy.

A number of Wetherspoon's pubs and hotels also won their respective category awards.

The Globe Hotel in Kings Lynn was named as having the best hotel toilets in England; Jolly’s Hotel in Broughty Ferry was named as having the best hotel toilets in Scotland and The Crossed Peels in Stirling also triumphed in Scotland, winning the best pub toilets category.

The Castle Hotel in Wales was named as having the best hotel toilets in Wales and the Aneaurin Bevan in Cardiff won the award for the best pub toilets in Wales.

Wetherspoon’s first pub in the Republic of Ireland, The Three Tun Tavern in Blackrock came out on top in the pub sector.

Mike Bone, managing director of the Loo of the Year Awards 2014, said: “The awards recognise the high standard of toilet facilities provided by JD Wetherspoon and importantly the exceptionally well equipped accessible toilets that meet current Equality Act standards.

“They also recognise the diligence and hard work of their staff in ensuring that the toilets are clean and fit for purpose.”

JDW chief executive John Hutson said: “Once again our pubs and staff have been recognised for the exceptional quality of their toilets and the dedication to maintaining them to high standards at all times.”
