Annual Ceremony

Due to the remaining restrictions held by many governments around the world preventing many of our hoteliers from safe and convenient travel to the UK we have sadly chosen to not hold a live event this year. Awards winners will still be announced to press on 4th November and we shall return to a regular annual ceremony next year.
