Chewton Glen named number one in Hoteliers Hotels Top 100
Iconic country house hotel Chewton Glen, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary, has been named as the best in the country by the UK's leading hoteliers.
The five-red-AA-star, 70-bedroom property, on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire, was voted number one on the inaugural Hoteliers' Hotels Top 100 list, unveiled by The Caterer and Sky tonight.
Compiled by the UK's leading hoteliers and verified by some of the nation's pre-eminent hotel experts, including hotel journalist Fiona Duncan, Giovanna Grossi and fellow AA hotel inspectors, and senior editors at The Caterer, the full list was revealed at a glittering reception at London's Ham Yard hotel, which itself was ranked number 15.
In addition to the Top 100 list, six category winners were also announced. Chewton Glen added to its overall Hoteliers' Hotels title by also winning the Countryside Hotel of the Year and Spa Hotel of the Year categories. Founded by Martin Skan, and now owned by London & Regional Properties, the hotel is one that has never been content to stand still. Recent improvements have included the addition of 12 luxury tree house suites, while later this year it will open a cookery school with chef and TV presenter James Martin.
