November 29, 2019

Bristol tourist attractions and hotels – as well as a volunteer at one of the city’s biggest museums – were among the winners in a major regional awards scheme.

Greg Malpas, who volunteers at Aerospace Bristol, won Gold in the Customer Service Superstar category, while BBC Bristol Tours gained Silver in the Age Friendly Tourism Business of the Year category of the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards.

Bristol’s accommodation providers fared well with Brooks Guesthouse winning the Bed and Breakfast and Guesthouse of the Year award and Village Hotel, Filton, the Doubletree by Hilton Cadbury House, Congresbury, and Bristol Marriott City Centre scooping Silver, Bronze and Commended respectively.

The New Room (John Wesley’s Chapel) in Broadmead secured Bronze in the Small Visitor Attraction of the Year category.

They were among a record 82 finalists competing for gold, silver or bronze at the prestigious black-tie dinner at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre, which was hosted by BBC Bristol presenter Laura Rawlings. Bev and Sarah Milner Simonds from multi award winning eat:Festivals were guest speakers.

Some 142 entries were received for the annual awards, which were sponsored by NFU Mutual Clifton and Wrington and supported by the region’s destination marketing organisations, including VisitBristol, whose CEO John Hirst said: “Awards events are an important part of our year and we had a great time celebrating with all the winners at the Bristol Marriott.

“Collectively we have had a very good year, we all look forward with optimism to the future, there is so much untapped potential.”
