VisitEngland announces winners of 2019 ROSE Awards

22 October 2019

VisitEngland today Tuesday 22 October revealed the winners of the fifth annual ROSE Awards.

The awards recognise accommodation providers across England who provide outstanding customer service for their customers. The 100 ROSE Award recipients are nominated by the VisitEngland Quality Scheme assessors and are selected from assessor comments along with online feedback from visitors.

The awards showcase England’s variety of high quality accommodation where owners and employees go the extra mile to make their customers’ visits extra special and cover all types of accommodation from hostels to hotels, self-catering to parks & campsites and from glamping sites to Bed & Breakfast (B&Bs) & guest houses, irrespective of star rating.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said:

“England has an outstanding range of accommodation options, from rooms in a 17th-century castle in Cornwall to a shepherd’s hut on a working farm in Yorkshire, from an eco-lodge on the Isle of Wight to bustling metropolitan hotels, there really is something for everyone.

“The ROSE Awards highlights those businesses who go above and beyond for their customers, providing the highest levels of customer service and ensuring repeat business, driving visitor growth and boosting local economies.”

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

The VisitEngland ROSE Awards are being presented at an afternoon tea event at the Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa.
