But don’t just believe us, here is what some Bristol, Bath and Somerst award winners say:

"My colleagues and I at The Bristol were delighted to be awarded with 2 golds on the evening. An achievement we celebrated back at the hotel on Friday with a full team lunch in our restaurant. It’s only by working together as a whole team that awards like these can be won". Jane Guy, The Bristol Hotel

“Winning the Gold award has helped us to promote our carnival and Somerset to a much wider audience and is very rewarding for the hundreds of people that give their time voluntarily to bring our carnival to the streets of Bridgwater; we have already had one company trying to lure in more customers by advertising in their online blog that our carnival is the place to be in November and justifying this by using the fact that we have won a Tourism Award!” Dave Croker, Bridgwater Carnival

“We aim to give our guests a truly special and memorable taste of Somerset when they stay with us, and as this is perfectly aligned with the Somerset Tourism awards’ values we were very keen to enter. Being relatively new to the sector it’s also been a really useful process to get expert feedback from the judges, as well as being a great opportunity to meet and network with our peers." Emma Taylor, Keepers Cottage

"It means so much to us in terms of being recognised as one of the best glamping and self catering destinations within Bath, Bristol & Somerset, and we feel that taking part has given all of us here at Wall Eden a boost to keep improving year on year" Dave, Wall Eden Farm Holidays & Adventure Activities

‘The Shakspeare Hand Blown Glass Orbs are a beautiful symbol of the accolades that have been bestowed upon us, but it is also about the specialist judges within this industry recognizing our hard work and consistent high levels of quality that we offer to our guests and saying ‘Yes! You’re doing a great job’’ John & Jane Bradley, Dunkery Beacon Country House

"We are very pleased for Huntstile Organic Farm to be recognised as a wonderful place to stay and receive our prestigious award. We were up against some extremely good competition and this is a reflection of the fabulous team at Huntstile Farm, thank you!" Lizzie Ridout, Huntstile Organic Farm

"All of us at Mill on the Brue were thrilled to have won the gold award for sustainable tourism; an excellent platform for reinforcing our ethos with all our regular and potential customers". Tricia Rawlingson Plant, Mill on the Brue Outdoor Activity Centre

"Entering the awards can be an excellent way to engage teams, focus on what you do and how you do it, identify areas for improvement and raise the profile of your business." Max Lawrence, Cross Lane House

“We found the Awards application process hugely valuable, and a great way to share with our teams just how much work goes into getting access right here at the Bristol Hippodrome. It’s an excellent way to see what you already do, plus where the gaps are that you can improve on in future. Winning any level of award is enormously motivating for everyone too!" Trish Hodson, The Bristol Hippodrome

"Winning Gold was beyond our wildest dreams! We really didn’t think that a small business such as ourselves could compete against larger and more established businesses." Frances Mackay, Razorcat Tours, Bath
