Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards
– Bronze Bed and Breakfast and Guest House of the Year
– Bronze Access and Inclusivity
– Highly Commended Age Friendly Tourism Business of the Year
“We could not have achieved these awards without the fantastic support of our staff,” said Nici. “We couldn’t be more proud of their commitment to helping us provide beautifully clean accommodation and truly scrumptious breakfasts.”
Our family-run business. Three Abbey Green, is headed up by Nici and Alan, with founder ofthe business and grandmother, Sue, still working in the B&B. Being a family business, part of our ethos is to welcome all guests of any age, including those with limited mobility. Guests with dietary requirements need not miss out on our award-winning breakfasts, as we carry breakfast stock for most dietary needs.
There were more than 145 entrants for the awards from many amazing businesses and organisations in the Tourism industry, which were shortlisted to 84 finalists drawn from Bath, Bristol and across Somerset to Exmoor. An additional 18 winners had already been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ status.
There were twenty eight different categories, so we were delighted to be shortlisted in two, the only Guest House in Bath to appear twice as a finalist. The panel members were also sufficiently impressed by the evidence to award us HIGHLY COMMENDED status in the Age Friendly Tourism Business of the Year.
Sue expressed her delight at these awards – “The three awards cover every aspect of our ethos for customer care. We welcome guests of any age and we do our best for guests with limited mobility. Providing they can climb the four steps up to the front door, we have ground floor bedrooms with accessible bathrooms – and our breakfasts are scrumptious and innovative”.
The team at Three Abbey Green is looking forward to the next time the awards are made, when we will be striving for Gold. By participating in these awards, we receive feedback on which we can base our future development. As Alan said, “There were some really well- known and prestigious businesses at these awards. We have shown that we can competewith the very best of the best in the West.”
