Winners of the VisitEngland 2017 ROSE Award announced

VisitEngland today announces the winners of the third annual ROSE Awards at the Independent Hotel Show in London.

The awards showcase outstanding accommodation providers across the country from Penzance to Penrith and from Skegness to Great Ayton. The winners were nominated by VisitEngland quality scheme assessors and selected from assessor comments and online feedback from overseas and domestic visitors. Recipients of the awards cover all types of accommodation and include Bed & Breakfasts (B&B)/guesthouses, self-catering and hotels to park/campsites, glamping sites and hostels and also cover a range of quality from two to five stars.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:

“It’s great to see the diversity and quality of accommodation available across the country with each of these winners demonstrating outstanding customer service. And it’s this level of commitment to ensuring visitors have the best experience combined with the amazing range of settings and attractions that have domestic and international visitors out exploring and spreading the economic benefits of tourism throughout the country.”

The ROSE Awards celebrate the teams and owners whose efforts surpass expectations and the recipients can advertise their accolade as long as they remain in VisitEngland’s scheme.
