A Melton country house hotel is line for two prestigious awards.

Scalford Hall Hotel has been shortlisted in the inaugural Leicestershire Business Awards.

It is one of three nominated in The People Development Award, sponsored by Leicester College.

And it is one of two contenders for the Best Use of Technology to Improve Business Performance, which is sponsored by the University of Leicester.

Winners will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner at Athena Leicester on September 9. They will go on to compete in the British Chambers of Commerce’s regional business awards for the East Midlands, with the chance to go into the national awards in November.

Scott Knowles, East Midlands Chamber of Trade chief executive, said: “We had a bumper crop of entries and our sponsors had a difficult task in whittling down each category shortlist.”
