On Friday 18th March we enjoyed a fantastic evening at The Doghouse celebrating the achievements of thebestof Guernsey business members in the Business of the Year Awards 2016.
24 Guernsey businesses placed in the top five in their category nationally, ten local businesses came FIRST in their category nationally and eight placed in the top 100 of ALL businesses in the British Isles.
Well done Guernsey!
Many winning local businesses came along to The Doghouse and were warmly welcomed with a glass of fizz followed by a delicious dinner from The Doghouse team and live music from The Barlows. The food was outstanding and everyone commented on what a great job all the staff at the Doghouse did from chef to service.

The Captains were voted 'Best' Business in Guernsey after receiving 253 reviews from happy customers with recommendations including praise for their 'friendly service', 'well priced, quality food', 'generous portions' and 'great ambiance'.
'Obviously all of us at The Captains are absolutely delighted with the result, everybody played a part in gathering the reviews, a nail biting finish and it proves that every review counts. The generous comments about the staff, service and standard of food is very satisfying and we would like to thank our customers for their support.'

Another Bailiwick business which performed exceptionally well, securing 242 reviews and placing first nationally in the category of 'Best Pet Shops' for the third year running is Trim Dog Pet Centre.
Owner, Jan Olliver said, 'It was wonderful to get all the feedback from our customers and we would like to thank all of them for their support and taking the time to give us reviews.'
thebestof Guernsey would like to congratulate all businesses who worked so hard, not just during the campaign, but all year round. Most have regularly encouraged customers and clients to leave honest feedback and quality reviews about the services and products they provide. The accolade of placing in the Business of the Year Awards therefore has real value because the title is awarded by the people that use the businesses.
