The Loo of the Year Awards 2015

Entry into the annual Loo of the Year Awards will provide an independent assessment of 'away from home' toilet provision and recognition of the standards achieved based on 'the toilet standard' for the UK. Mike Bone, the award scheme's managing director, said “Leading retailers, restaurant and pub chains, visitor attractions, holiday parks, shopping centres, local authorities, and - importantly - the cleaning and FM sector, generally recognise the annual Loo of the Year Awards as a proven, cost effective and independent annual assessment of the standard of their toilet provision management and receive proper recognition through our annual grading scheme.”

Nominations and entries are now being received for the 2015 Loo of the Year Awards - the annual competition to find the best places 'to go' in the UK including the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and, new for 2015, the Republic of Ireland.

There are thousands of toilets entered annually from all market sectors (there are 60 entry categories). Entries are invited from all categories and every entry receives an unannounced, dedicated, inspection visit. Entries gaining a bronze, silver, gold or platinum award are presented with a certificate to help them promote their award winning facilities to their customers and staff. There are a range of national and overall awards and trophies for the very best entries which will be presented at the awards presentation event to be held on Friday 4 December at the St Johns Hotel in Solihull.

The Attendant of the Year Awards form part of Loo of the Year Awards but relate specifically to the cleaning staff that look after facilities, rather than the loos themselves. All attendants and/or cleaning staff will automatically be entered for an Attendant of the Year award.

Anyone can enter online via the awards website: or by contacting The closing date for entries is 30th June.
