Gretna Gateway is delighted to have won a Platinum Loo of the Year Award in the 2018 search to find the best ‘away from home’ washrooms in the UK.


The Loo of the Year Awards have been identifying the best washrooms in Britain since 1987 and are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide ‘away from home’ facilities for staff, customers and visitors.


Every entry received an unannounced visit from a Loo of the Year Awards Inspector and was assessed against 101 judging criteria – including signage and décor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management. Every washroom receives a grading ranging from Bronze to Platinum and Gold and Platinum winners are short listed for one or more of several National Awards covering England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland the Irish Public.


The 2018 Loo of the Year Awards were sponsored by Clos-o-Mat, Dolphin Dispensers, and Dyson Airblade Wash & Dry.


Thousands of toilets were judged this year, across the sixty one separate entry categories of the competition, with many first-time entries from establishments joining the increasing number of providers who submit their washroom facilities for an annual, independent assessment.
