A HAMPSHIRE hotel and spa has topped off a hugely successful year with another prestigious award for being one of the best in the business.

Careys Manor Hotel and SenSpa in Brockenhurst is continuing its celebrations after striking gold at this year’s Beautiful South Awards, gaining top spot in the highly competitive Business Tourism category.

For the third consecutive year the hotel has been recognised as one of the top corporate venues at the awards ceremony, where more than 300 guests from some of the most prominent tourist locations in the south-east join together to honour the best in the industry.

After being highly commended and winning a silver award in the same category in the previous two years, Careys Manor Hotel and SenSpa continued to demonstrate an outstanding corporate offering to achieve the gold this year.

The excellent conference and leisure facilities combined with exceptional customer service and focus on guest feedback were considered the key to the hotel’s continued success. 

Thomas Lyon-Shaw, manager at Careys Manor Hotel, said: “Each and every member of staff should be immensely proud of what they have achieved, both on an individual and team basis.

“We are all delighted to have been able to round off the year with further honours at the Beautiful South Awards 2014, a ceremony that is intended to demonstrate the highest standards in hospitality across the south of England.

“Our customers have come to expect only the best from their time with us in the New Forest in terms of the service, the food and the wonderful, unique surroundings. We have worked tirelessly to ensure we not only meet but exceed the expectations of each guest and their individual journey while with us.”
