Four pubs in the Cotswolds have won a Publican Award for Best Pub Accommodation.
The Cotswold pubs, all operated by Brakspear, reached the finals in the national competition that is said to reward the ‘cream of the cream’ of the UK pub industry, with the winners announced at an award’s ceremony in London on Wednesday 4 March 2020.
The Best Pub Accommodation Award was given to the pub group which offers guests the best overnight stay, with judges looking for first-rate comfort and design in the bedrooms, outstanding customer service and a tasty breakfast – with pub visits by professional mystery guests, as well as a panel interview, all part of the judging process.
All Brakspear’s pub rooms are described as being decorated and furnished to high standards with features such as roll-top baths and rainfall showers, super-comfortable beds with Egyptian cotton linens and Nespresso coffee machines.
Simon Stanbrook, general manager at the Frogmill, said: ‘We are thrilled to have won a Publican Award, which are widely regarded as the toughest in pub industry. It’s great to know that our bedrooms, food and drink have been judged robustly and found to be the best in the country, and I’m really grateful to our wonderful staff team whose high standards and outstanding customer service have won this accolade.’
