Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons has been named as the best hotel in the country by the UK’s leading hoteliers.

The five-red-AA-star, 32-bedroom property in Oxfordshire was voted number one on the Hoteliers’ Hotels Top 100 list, unveiled by The Caterer and Sky last night.

Compiled by the UK’s leading hoteliers and verified by some of the nation’s hotel experts, the results were independently ratified by a panel of experts including Fiona Duncan, hotel critic of the Telegraph and Giovanna Grossi, hotel consultant and AA advisor; and senior editors from The Caterer.

In addition, Belmond Le Manoir added to its overall Hoteliers’ Hotels title by also winning the ‘Best Food Hotel’ award and was featured in the top three for ‘Countryside Hotel of the Year’.

Jan-Paul Kroese, General Manager at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons received the award at the event and commented “I am so proud to accept this award on behalf of our entire team at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Obviously a massive thank you to Raymond for his continued passion and inspiration and always pushing us to be our very best. We can only win such achievements when we are working together and show the dedication to our guests on a daily basis. These awards mean even more as they have been voted for by our industry peers. Thank you all so much.”

Amanda Afiya, Editor at The Caterer, said, “We were delighted by the response to launch of the list last year and are excited by the engagement that this year’s list will create both in the industry and with guests. Hoteliers are the best judges of the UK hotel industry and the Hoteliers’ Hotel Top 100 showcases a wide breadth of properties that celebrates our Great British hotels.”
