We're VisitEngland's 'Best B&B in England' for 2017!
We were delighted to be shortlisted again, amongst the top 3 finalists from around the whole country, when we went to the VisitEngland 'Awards for Excellence 2017' ceremony at the Waldorf Hotel last week.
But then we were absolutely thrilled to be awarded the top spot - the Gold Award, making us VisitEngland's 'Best B&B in England 2017' - as we were in 2014 too. To win this prestigious and highly-prized accolade a second time is very special indeed.
The VisitEngland Awards for Excellence are regarded as 'the Tourism Oscars', and measure us against the very best accommodation businesses in the whole country. To win is amazing for us - and good for you too!
As part of the proces we are 'secretly shopped' by an experienced judge and assessor, who wrote in his debrief:
"This was an extremely positive experience. Jeff and Jill are consummate hosts - my partner commented, unprompted, that “I feel as if I am visiting friends.” Service was relaxed yet attentive. Accommodation is very comfortable, and the communal areas, including honesty bar, really convivial..."
This is very affirming for us, for sure - but the real value in a comment like this is that you can be reassured, by someone who has evaluated and assessed the very best B&Bs in the whole country, that your time at SCH can provide you with everything you hope for. And that's priceless. Come and see...
