Tewkesbury Park played host to the annual Best Loved Hotel Awards last night and won Fido's Favourite Pet Friendly Category too! Coming together to celebrate the cream of what the Best Loved portfolio offers were hoteliers and industry specialists who dined in the hotel's brand new Cotswolds Suite.
Tewkesbury Park has recently completed an extensive two-year, £9 million renovation. The Cotswolds Suite, an events and wedding venue, was completed in August. Last year's new additions included nine luxury historic suites, two spa rooms, two meeting/private dining rooms, an orangery and a cocktail lounge. The health club, guestrooms, main foyer and reception were all completely refurbished.
As a result of the renovation, the hotel is now able to offer innovative experiences and one market they have worked hard to attract is guests visiting with dogs. The hotel and its grounds are ideally suited for pooches - a select number of dog-friendly rooms have dog beds, treats and patio doors that lead straight onto grassy areas, perfect for them to have a play outdoors. Dogs are also welcome to drink and dine with their owners in the piano lounge area of the hotel. Best Loved customers recognised how welcoming Tewkesbury Park is to pooches and human guests alike, and voted overwhelmingly for them to land the title.
The annual awards start in June when nominations begin, encouraging Best Loved customers to nominate hotels where they have stayed and experienced ‘best in class' stays. Winners were announced at the award's ceremony and dinner held in the new Cotswolds Suite.
