Staff at Hever Castle’s luxury 5* Bed and Breakfast are celebrating after gaining silver at a national awards ceremony.
The Bed and Breakfast scooped silver in Boutique Accommodation of the Year at the Visit England Awards for Excellence at the Bath Assembly Rooms on Monday (23 April).
The luxury accommodation was pipped to the Gold spot by Yorebridge House in North Yorkshire with Cary Arms & Spa in Devon winning bronze.
Winning Gold at the Beautiful South Awards in 2017 meant Hever Castle was eligible to enter the national Visit England awards.
Astor Wing Manager, Roland Smith said: “We are delighted that Hever Castle’s bed and breakfast is recognised as being in the top three in the country. We pride ourselves on our excellent service and it is testament to the hard work of all our staff to have won silver.”
The bed and breakfast is housed in the ‘Tudor Village’ – an Edwardian extension to the Castle which consists of the ‘Astor Wing’ and recently refurbished ‘Anne Boleyn Wing’ – with 28 bedrooms in total.
The extension was added to the Castle by William Waldorf Astor to accommodate staff and guests was previously only available for weddings and corporate events.
In 2012 underfloor heating, flat screen TVs and wifi were added as part of a refurbishment to open the accommodation up to the general public. The doors opened in March 2012.
All bedrooms are en-suite and individually styled, with some offering four poster beds, roll top baths or walk in showers.
Guests to the luxury bed and breakfast, which recently received the TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence for the fourth year running, have exclusive access to some of the 125 acre award winning gardens when they are closed to the general public.
