STAFF and customer at a Malvern pub are feeling flush after it won acclaim for the quality and standards of its toilets in the Loo of the Year Awards 2023.

The Foley Arms Hotel in Worcester Road has been awarded a platinum plus rating by inspectors.

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

Loo of the Year Awards inspectors made unannounced visits to thousands of toilets at sites across the UK, in order to judge them.

All of the toilets are graded silver, gold, platinum, platinum plus or diamond with unacceptable toilets not graded at all.

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

The Foley Arms Hotel, a Wetherspoon’s pub, is managed by Lee Cartwright.

Lee said: “We are delighted with the award. Staff at the pub ensure the toilets are in excellent condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors.”

The Loo of the Year Awards 2023 managing director, Becky Wall, said: “The toilets at The Foley Arms Hotel have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.

“The pub deserves its platinum plus award.”
