Accor UK & Ireland Hotels went home the big winners of the night walking away with 3 awards, whilst Oakman Inns & Restaurants, PPHE and Red Carnation all received 2 awards.

The hospitality industry turned out in force at Chelsea Football Club on the 9th February to see who had been crowned the winners at this year’s glittering awards ceremony.

This year saw entries of the highest quality and really gave the judges a tough task to pick outright winners in all categories. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and shortlists.

“What a fantastic night of celebration to reward people, organisations and projects that work to raise the profile of the hospitality sector and to attract and retain talent to this great industry.’’ commented Anne Pierce, CEO, Springboard
