Bovey Castle has been awarded five Red Stars by the AA for its exceptional hospitality while the Mount Somerset Hotel & Spa near Taunton was awarded four Red Stars.
Sir Peter Rigby, owner of The Eden Hotel Collection, said: “Since the Eden Hotel Collection acquired Bovey Castle in 2014 we have been on a journey to bring Bovey back to life. We committed to a huge financial investment, encompassing restoration work and a complete refurbishment.
“We are delighted to achieve our key objective, in that Bovey Castle is now recognised as a first-class destination hotel in the South West.
“Similarly, we are thrilled that The Mount Somerset continues to perform to an outstanding level and we are delighted to celebrate the hotel’s ongoing success and its newly-awarded four red stars.”
Mark Chambers, managing director of collection, added: “We are delighted that the AA has recognised the hard-working teams at both Bovey Castle and The Mount Somerset over the past year. The dedicated teams at both hotels are committed to providing the exceptional levels of service and hospitality which underpin everything that we do.”
