Loo of the Year Awards

Every year the Loo of the Year Awards judge public toilets across the country. Motorway services used to be a major part of in this, although from 2003 to 2005 only Moto took part. In 2006 both Moto and Welcome Break took part, but in 2007 and 2008 only Welcome Break and one Moto site did, and in 2009 Lancaster and Tebay were the only entrants in the motorway services category.

In 1992 Fleet was chosen as the best public toilets overall.

The results for each service area are displayed on that services' page, a brief overview can be found below. Every year the The Green Welly Stop in Tyndrum has come top in the Scottish roadside facilities category.
