On September 2nd Chewton Glen reclaimed its place as Number 1 UK Holiday Hotel at the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards.
The Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards are always important to Chewton Glen as these are voted for by its discerning readers. The hotel was delighted that this year’s comments related directly to the team and are proud that it still stands firmly at the forefront in the UK hotel luxury market for outstanding service.
Chewton Glen’s track record for excellence and its continuous success relating to awards goes without saying however; it has gone from strength to strength since the opening of the Treehouses in 2012. These have added a new dimension giving the hotel the opportunity to market to a new audience, in particular the family market. In August 2013, the hotel believed it hit an all-time high yet this year, it has exceeded all expectations.
Situated just 90 minutes from London, nestled on the edge of the New Forest and a short walk from the sea, Chewton Glen believes its magical formula is down to the unique combination of its perfect location and unrivalled facilities complimented by a dedicated team providing only the very best in service.
Andrew Stembridge, Managing Director of Chewton Glen and Cliveden said: “This has been a great evening for the hotel and our team, as we draw nearer to celebrating our 50th anniversary as a UK luxury destination, it makes me incredibly proud of our heritage and the vision of our owners, London & Regional Properties and their continued investment and development of the property. We have a dedicated and passionate management team whose aim is always to exceed our guests’ expectations and I am tremendously proud of their achievements highlighted in this award, which makes particular note that Chewton Glen is the best hotel in the UK for service.“
It was a brilliant night all round as The Spa at Chewton Glen came a very respectable 5th place in the category of ‘Best UK Spas’ and was also highly ranked in the ‘World’s Top 100’ listing.
