A luxury hotel in Wiltshire is one of the best in the region.

Bowood Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort has been named as a finalist in the Large Hotel of the Year category at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2023.

It is one of four hotels that are up for the industry accolade.

The award recognises full-service hotels with a minimum of 35 bedrooms that provide memorable guest experiences and demonstrate excellence across every aspect of the business.

Hotels from across Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall are eligible.

Bowood offers a range of leisure facilities, including an award-winning spa and PGA Championship Golf Course.

General manager Jeff Condliffe said “The standard of tourism businesses throughout the south west is to be admired, and we’re honoured to be recognised alongside some other incredible hotels and organisations.

"This is a great achievement for us, and showcases the hard work and commitment of the entire team at Bowood to provide the best guest experience possible.”

The awards arrive at the end of 11 months of evidence gathering, online entry, judging and county awards, with more than 482 entry submissions.

The regional final will be held at the Eden Project on March 23.
