Best Loved hotels are the finest hotels you will find in any region of the UK and Ireland in each category of accommodation, whether they be country inns, city townhouses, stately homes or bed & breakfasts. So, it comes as no surprise that many Best Loved favourites do very well when award time comes along. I would like to congratulate the following recent award winners:
The Feversham Arms - AA Hotel of the Year 2009.
Jesmond Dene and Peat Inn - 3rd AA Rosette.
Kilcamb Lodge Hotel Review Scotland's Country House Hotel of the Year; Scottish Hotel Awards' Most Romantic Hotel and General Manager Excellence Award.
And the following winners of the Irish Hotel & Catering Gold Medal Awards:
Dunbrody House Hotel - Supreme Winner of the Gold Medal for Excellence; Country House and Guesthouse awards
Gregan's Castle - Gold Medal Award for Fine Dining
Harvey's Point 4-star Gold Medal Award
Merrion Hotel Gold Medal for the Casual Dining
The Europe Hotel & Resort 5-star hotel Gold Medal Award
I would also like to welcome two new hotels to Best Loved, The Red Lion Hotel and The New Inn. Both located in the famously picturesque seaside village of Clovelly, Devon, The New Inn is a luxury boutique on the vertiginous cobbled High Street, while The Red Lion Hotel is equally pampering and luxurious and is situated right on the unspoilt harbour.
