This Year’s Categories

We want to find the most exciting independent hotel of 2018! From a trendy boutique hotel to a luxury resort, we’re hot on the heels of the next hotel-of-the-moment with a striking interior to match.
Who says hotels have to have all the fun? Our winning B&B or guest house has to be postcard-perfect, picturesque and pretty. Let’s find that knockout small accommodation perfect for a weekend away.
We’re searching high and low for the hospitality venues that champion sustainability and responsible practices, whilst creating stylish interiors, in order to crown them our eco-champion of the year.
Indulgent, relaxing and stress-free; that’s what we expect from a spa but we want to find a spa like no other. Can we find a little slice of heaven somewhere?
Part of a hotel group and believe you stand out from the crowd? We’re looking for a gorgeous hotel, which is part of a group or brand, design-driven and breaking away from the norm.
We’re on the hunt for a bar or restaurant that really sets the mood. From a dark and dramatic watering hole on the outskirts, or an inner city basement bar to a whimsical, charming, mysterious or glamorous restaurant that offers the perfect candle lit dinner for two; it has to have an atmosphere, an ambience and instil a slice of passion into those who frequent it.
Is there a brand new hospitality venue that’s getting everyone’s pulse racing? This new-build could include new materials, new design approaches or merely crafted for the future.
