The winners have been announced for this year’s Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards sponsored by NFU Mutual Clifton and Wrington. Laura Rawlings and Doug Allan hosted the prestigious dinner at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre, with guest speakers Bev and Sarah Milner Simmonds, from multi award winning eat:Festivals.
82 businesses received a bronze, silver or gold award with a further 15 receiving Commended status.
This year's competition has seen many changes, with new entry forms, new processes and a closer-than-ever link with the regional South West and national VisitEngland Awards. Judging has also changed with an increased focus on digital presence and evidence. One of the new categories for this year has been the very popular Forthglade Dog Friendly Pub of the year.
John Herbert from NFU Mutual Clifton and Wrington says "as specialists in the Hospitality Sector we are proud to be the headline sponsor of the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Awards."
