VisitEngland announces winners of 2018 ROSE Awards

16 October 2018

VisitEngland has today Tuesday 16 October revealed the winners of the fourth annual ROSE Awards at the Independent Hotel Show in London.

The ROSE Awards, this year awarded to 100 recipients across the country, puts the spotlight on those accommodation providers across England who provide visitors with the warmest of welcomes.  They recognise the owners, management and employees of establishments that go above and beyond, making customers’ experiences extra special, irrespective of star rating, style or accommodation type.

VisitEngland Director Patricia Yates said:

"From B&Bs in beautiful countryside and glamorous glamping, to boutique hotels to quintessentially English pubs with rooms, a range of outstanding accommodation providers right across the country are being recognised today.  It is the human touch that these people provide that make visitors’ experiences memorable, ensuring repeat business and helping the industry thrive.”

Celebrating the teams and owners whose efforts surpass expectations, the ROSE Awards' recipients can advertise their accolade as long as they remain within the VisitEngland quality scheme.

Notes to Editors

  • Nominations are triggered following the annual VisitEngland quality assessment visit and observations by the assessor, but other evidence, including online customer reviews are taken into account. The final judging panel also looks for innovation that sets the business apart. This includes facilities or services offered to make the customer’s stay really special.
