DUKES LONDON is delighted and honoured to announce its success at the 24th annual World Travel Awards, European Gala. Held on Saturday 30th September 2017 in the beautiful Marble Hall at The Russian Museum of Ethnography in St. Petersburg, DUKES swept up the prestigious award for ‘England’s Leading Hotel’ for the fifth year in a row.

One of the most renowned honours in the travel industry, the awards acknowledge excellence of care, service and standards, and aim to inspire hotels and the hospitality industry around the world and serve to raise global industry standards. Chosen by an international jury of hospitality experts and peers in addition to consumers, DUKES faced tough competition, but St James’ best-kept bolthole deservingly won the day.  

Staffed by a dedicated, highly professional and endlessly courteous team, DUKES LONDON offers the best of British hospitality in the heart of the capital. The team also endeavours to participate in as many community events as possible – from running local charity races to loaning their famous cocktail connoisseur Alessandro Palazzi to nearby stores for events, DUKES is a core of the community and an irreplaceable institution of St James’.  

This year, the hotel has seen the launch of GBR, or ‘Great British Restaurant’, overseen by award-winning head chef Nigel Mendham and serving up a medley of delicious, traditional cuisine with a modern flair. The hotel has also recently undergone a multimillion pound refurbishment, redesigning the events spaces in addition to installing beautifully decorated bedrooms, ensuring absolute comfort and luxury for their guests.  

The awards’ founder, Graham Cooke, said on the evening, ‘We have recognised the leading lights of European tourism tonight and I wish to offer my heartfelt congratulations to all of our winners,’ whilst Debrah Dhugga, Managing Director of the DUKES COLLECTION, offered her congratulations to her team with the words ‘This is an incredible accolade to achieve, and I would like to thank all of the team for their continued support, professionalism and commitment which continues to see us achieve honours and recognition.’
