Best Hotel with Spa – in association with Core by Premier Software – Dormy House, Worcestershire, England
“Standing high on Willersey Hill, the 17th-century farmhouse that’s now the utterly chic and charming Dormy House is a showcase of talent from leading designers, landscapers, spa innovators and an ambitious chef. It’s a hotel that feels like a home offering exceptional services such as ethical, prize-winning spa treatments, a new kind of casual fine-dining experience, afternoon teas with a
modern twist and tasting menus to dream over.”

Best Destination Spa – in association with Core by Premier Software – Gaia Spa at Boringdon Hall Hotel, Devon, England
“The views across Dartmoor are captivating, and the convenient proximity to Plymouth makes Boringdon Hall an easily accessible weekend escape and wedding/events venue. Throw in some state-of-the-art spa-ing at Gaia Spa, 18 holes of challenging golf at nearby Boringdon Park Golf Club and 3 AA Rosetteaward-winning food at Gallery Restaurant and you want for nothing.”

Best New or Back on the Scene Luxury Spa – in association with Temple Spa – The Spa at Cliveden House, Berkshire, England
“Reborn further to a full restoration, the epic Cliveden House is reliving its glory days. Almost SO grand, opulent and downright English it seems too fantastic to believe but here it is, in Berkshire beside the River Thames. Hidden behind the brick walls of this magnificent garden is the serene Cliveden Spa comprising seven treatment rooms, The Nail Studio and an indoor pool. The infamous “Profumo” pool is also found within the gardens and is the last remaining listed outdoor pool in England.”

Best Newcomer or Back on the Scene Hotel – in association with Hotelcare – Flemings Mayfair, London, England
“Besides the ageless glamour, fantastic location and rare level of service that makes you instantly feel at home, it’s the privilege of being in on the Flemings Mayfair secret that’s so glorious. Discretion and privacy are hallmarks of this Georgian town house hotel. Flemings Mayfair may be grand in scale but it’s intimate in execution. Each room is a jewel-coloured, tasteful and contemporarystyled
enclave with a touch of art-deco finesse.”

Best for Romance – in association with Champagne Taittinger – Seaham Hall, County Durham, England
“Behind its 18th-century white walls, Seaham Hall has a refreshingly contemporary-luxe interior where distressed/retro furniture and bold patterns meet plush linens and high-tech gadgetry. Whether you’re here to detox or retox, the Seaham experience isn’t complete without a visit to the highly impressive Serenity Spa where inspiring up-to-the-minute treatments feature alongside ancient therapies.”

Best Service – in association with HEWI – Chewton Glen, Hampshire, England
“When a hotel’s received as many accolades, expectations run high on arrival. But despite this, you’ll still be blown away, even if you’re a returning guest because Chewton Glen is always improving (even when it doesn’t seem possible) and evolving. There’s certainly no restriction with space thanks to the acres of gardens and parkland at the edge of the New Forest; the sea’s only a gentle 10- minute stroll away too.”

Best Serviced Accommodation – in association with HEWI – Roch Castle Hotel, Pembrokeshire, Wales
“Roch Castle Hotel is like no other. Behind the shell of this late 12th-century Norman castle belies a smart, designer interior of six guest rooms, a kitchen and public rooms as stylish as they are historic. The entire castle can be hired on an exclusive-use basis, which makes it a great place to whisk the whole family away for a self-catering break, spend a peaceful weekend or meet with colleagues.”

Best Small and Exclusive Property – in association with Hoogly Tea – Hazel Bank Country House, Cumbria, England
“Immortalised in Hugh Walpole’s “Herries Chronicles” as the protagonist’s idyllic Lake District home, the late-Victorian Hazel Bank Country House is a naturally dramatic setting. In the heart of Lakeland, enveloped by four acres of pretty English countryside, this peaceful seven-bedroom sojourn is close to the market town of Keswick, serene Derwentwater and epic Borrowdale valley and fells.”

Best for Families – in association with Ten Acre – Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa, Wiltshire, England
“Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa, Wiltshire, is an authority on the high life; a Palladian mansion in hundreds of private green acres, a short drive from historic Bath. Beyond the imposing exterior resides a collection of suites and bedrooms dressed in fine fabrics with antiques reflecting each room’s personality; bathrooms are a flawless sweep of marble.”

Best Luxury Value – in association with Newhall Publishing – Park House, Hotel & Spa, West Sussex, England
“The archetypal English countryside scene, Park House is in the quaint village of Bepton, a short drive from the historic market town of Midhurst. A family-run hotel with a welcoming atmosphere and home-from-home quality, Park House is as warm as it is stylish with a designer finesse to the interiors whose classic country chic style has been given a contemporary interpretation that brings everything upto-date and on-trend.”

Best Dining Experience – in association with LSA International – Alyn Williams at The Westbury Mayfair, London, England
“In the beating heart of the capital’s fashionable Mayfair, it’s a five-star sophisticate in an enviable location. Since 2011, Alyn Williams at The Westbury Mayfair has been drawing a crowd for its fine-dining feats of flavor, while the Japanese Tsukji Sushi Restaurant provides an alternative dining option with dishes prepared from organic ingreidents. All the while, the casual, welcoming Polo Bar
presents an impressive cocktail list and tasty bar menu.”

Best Waterside Hotel – in association with LSA International – Sharrow Bay, Cumbria, England
“Sharrow Bay is an English Lakes legend. Idyllically located directly on the lakeshore, at the foot of Ullswater’s wild and quiet Eastern Fells, the panoramic views from here are utterly breathtaking. Heralded as the very first “country house hotel” following its launch in the late 1940s by Francis Coulson, his subsequent business partnership with Brian Sack became an industry-changing event.”

Best Countryside Hotel (or Lodge) – in association with Journey – Cromlix and Chez Roux, Perth & Kinross, Scotland
“Located a short drive from Gleneagles, Cromlix opened in the spring of 2014 following a hotly anticipated and revitalising overhaul. Cromlix comprises 10 bedrooms, five suites, a one-bedroom gate lodge, a billiards room, bar, lounge, drawing room and restaurant, as well as meeting facilities at an executive level for day and 24-hour delegate rates. Plus, there are approximately 34 acres of
parkland surrounding the estate complete with four lochs and two mineral springs. But the ace that’s going to secure its success? The gourmet restaurant with open kitchen located in a glass conservatory overseen by Chef Albert Roux OBE, KFO.”

Best Urban Hotel – in association with Journey – The May Fair Hotel, London, England
“Mayfair is the London neighbourhood where designer label junkies come to shop, where food fans enjoy fine eateries and art aficionados flock for the galleries and world-famous Christies and Sotheby’s. As you would expect, all the staple services
of a leading city hotel are here, however, The May Fair stands apart for many reasons. Yes, the suites are bag-swinging spacious but it’s their vibrant colour schemes, surprising detail and good old-fashioned decadence that all come together to make even the most moneyed oil baron happy.”

Best Green Hotel – in association with Journey – 41, London, England
“In the heart of London’s sovereign quarter, 41 presents a home-away-from-home experience. And what a home it is! It’s a boutique retreat from the frenzy of the Big Smoke. The discreet private entrance, stylish monochrome décor, opulent rooms (all crisp white linen and welcoming fireplaces), smart technology and elegant mahogany-panelled Executive Lounge, all give this little gem the air of a private members’ club.”

Best for Meetings or Conferences – in association with Ten Acre – The Marylebone, London, England
“Spanning across an entire block of the neighbourhood, The Marylebone is a reflection of its affluent location. Despite its vast size an intimate atmosphere travels through The Marylebone. This is apparent as soon as you enter the glamorous lobby where Parisian furnishings, Italian ceramics and a hand-laid mosaic floor set the scene. All at once exclusive yet comfortable, it doesn’t matter if
you’re travelling with the family or for pleasure, The Marylebone’s resort facilities cater for all.”

Best for Weddings, Parties or Special Occasions – in association with Marston’s – Castle Leslie Estate, County Monaghan, Ireland
“This is one of the last great Irish estates still owned by its founding family and stands majestically within the green beauty of the County Monaghan countryside featuring the tranquil waters of Glaslough Lake. A devastatingly handsome castle, it’s a palatial showpiece. As you would expect, warm Irish hospitality is on the agenda here and complete escapism is a guarantee. Weddings are given the full genteel treatment and exclusive use of the Castle.”

Readers’ Awards – in association with Hatch Mansfield – Saunton Sands Hotel, Devon, England
“Four hours from London the North Devon Coast offers the ultimate breath of salt-tinged fresh air and escape from the hustle and bustle of the urban haze. On these immaculate golden sandy shores Saunton Sands Hotel stands against the dramatic backdrop of the famous South West Coastal Path. This is postcard perfection.”
