Each room offers a selection of carefully curated toiletries, complimentary high speed internet, bespoke drinks selection, and a breakfast menu tailored to guests’ eating preferences.

Worq Hospitality managing director and company founder, Jonathan Doherty, said: “We are delighted to have received both of these prestigious industry awards for El Santo and Boutique 50, against very stiff competition in each category.

“Both are testament to how hard our teams work in creating fabulous customer experiences – at El Santo we have a vibrant, inclusive entertainment venue as well as an indulgent, and authentic, Latin American restaurant and cocktail bar, whilst at Boutique 50, it’s all about making the guest feel as special and looked after as possible, cosseted in a relaxing sanctuary where they can truly unwind.”

Mr Doherty paid tribute to El Santo’s in house entertainment team: “We have a really proactive team of people booking and arranging dancers, singers, Drag Queens, and musicians to keep everybody entertained at El Santo.

“We have our own choreographers and fiesta dancers as well which are often commented on by our customers. They really add that Latin American spirit to the venue, which, of course, is what it’s all about. We want to transport our customers to a Brazilian carnival.

“It’s all accompanied by our very authentic Latin American cuisine from many different countries across South America, including Brazil, Peru and Mexico.”
