DANIELA Kordová, the director of the Borovica Hotel in Štrbské Pleso in the High Tatras, won the title Hotelier of the Year 2012 award granted by the Association of Hotels and Restaurants. The winner was selected from 72 directors of member hotels, and financial success held the most weight when assessing the competing hotels, the TASR newswire reported.

“I value this award highly, especially because it went to the High Tatras, which are experiencing a repeated boom from the viewpoint of local tourism, and because I obtained it as a native to this region,” Kordová said as quoted by TASR. “The quality of the hotel must be assessed from several viewpoints and when good finances are married to quality services, then there is the best connection.”

Kordová has been the director of the four-star hotel, which includes a wellness centre, for five years. Last year she finished second in the competition.
