The ceremony was held at the Ham Yard Hotel in the heart of Soho (well worth saving the pennies for), hosted by editor Melinda Stevens.
The Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards are highly sought after of course and, although Chewton Glen has always attracted attention, this has certainly increased since the opening of the Treehouses in 2012. These have added a new dimension giving the hotel the opportunity to market to a new audience, in particular the family market.
Situated 90 minutes from London, nestled on the edge of the New Forest and a short walk from the sea, Chewton Glen says its magical formula is down to the combination of its location and facilities complemented by a dedicated team providing the best in service.
The Spa at Chewton Glen came a respectable fifth place in the category of ‘Best UK Spas’ and was also highly ranked in the ‘World’s Top 100’ listing.
But there’s more… another award that is
At another champagne reception across town, Chewton Glen’s sister hotel, Cliveden House picked up ‘Best Newcomer’ in the latest Waitrose Good Food Guide.
Only ten months after opening André Garrett’s eponymous restaurant came straight into the guide at 18th place with a score of 7/10 amongst some of the top culinary names in the industry. Both hotels are owned by London & Regional Properties who are in the middle of a multi-million pound restoration of Cliveden House.
So if you’re looking for a very cool break, the readers of Conde Nast Traveller have spoken and they’re usually on the money.
