Held at Cornwall’s Eden Project, the awards saw Bowood land gold and bronze in the ‘Business Tourism’ and ‘Large Hotel of the Year’ categories respectively.
The official tourism awards for the region, the South West Tourism Excellence Awards offer entry to businesses in Somerset, Dorest, Bath, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol, and the Isles of Scilly. The awards also form the regional heat of the national VisitEngland awards, to which Bowood Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort will now progress.
Officially opened by HRH the Duchess of Cornwall in May 2009, the hotel is set in the western corner of a 2,000 acre Grade I listed park.
“It was a tremendous honour to gain bronze in the ‘Large Hotel of the Year’ category last year, [so] to repeat this a year later and also gain the gold for ‘Business Tourism’ certainly highlights Bowood Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort’s consistency of performance and on-going endeavours to build upon success,” said Bowood’s owner, Lord Lansdowne.
“My greatest of thanks and congratulations go out to general manager Charles Morgan and every member of the team at Bowood Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort, whose tireless hard work and professionalism have led to these proud achievements.
“It’s certainly a wonderful and promising start to 2013!”
