Great night for Scilly at Cornwall Tourism Awards
It was a good night for Scilly at the Cornwall Tourism Awards on Thursday evening, with two businesses scooping awards. Hell Bay Hotel took Gold in the Small Hotel Category for the third year in the row and will go forward to be represented at the South West regional awards in February 2016 and possibly the nationals later on next year. Philip Callan, General Manager was there to accept the award on the hotel team's behalf. Tresco Leisure Spa won a Bronze award in the Wellbeing and Spa Experience category on their first time of entering the awards, much to the delight of Hannah Shaw, Leisure Spa Manager.
The gala night took place at the Headland Hotel in Newquay Cornwall, attracting the great and the good from tourist businesses across the county. Comedian Rory McGrath presented the awards.
"All of us at Tresco Leisure Spa were so delighted to be shortlisted for this award, and to come away with bronze was wonderful; a great recognition of the hard work put in by the whole team," says Hannah. "It’s fabulous to see that Tresco Leisure Spa is viewed among the very best spa and wellbeing experiences in Cornwall, reflecting the extremely special atmosphere and experience our guests can enjoy.”
"We are delighted that once again, Scilly was well represented at the Cornwall Tourism Awards," says David Jackson, Executive Director, Islands' Partnership (the organisation responsible for marketing the Isles of Scilly as a visitor destination). "Both Hell Bay Hotel and the Tresco Leisure Spa are worthy winners, demonstrating real excellence in their field. They join a growing list of previous winners from Scilly and as the standards get ever higher, they should be very proud of their achievements. Not only will these awards have a positive impact on their businesses, but it is great for Scilly to be recognised for quality and high standards of service."
