We are delighted to once again be nominated as finalists for the annual Conde Nast Johansens Award for Most Excellent Waterside Hotel..... Remember we were winners of this in 2012 (see below).    Announcements are on the 8th November, so we have our fingers and toes crossed!.....

The hotel beat entrants from throughout Great Britain and Ireland to win the category for the Most Excellent Waterside Hotel. 

The Grand and its sister hotel, Tylney Hall in Hampshire, were also finalists in the section for venues and hotels that host meetings and incentive events up to 100 delegates and under 100 delegates.

A spokesman for Condé Nast Johansens said: The awards were created to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across the recommended properties in our guides. The world-renowned awards are a trusted mark of quality recognised by consumers and travel professionals alike and represent the finest standards and best value for money in luxury and independent accommodation.”

Mr Webley said: “We were absolutely delighted to be selected from hotels around the country and beat some very stiff competition to win the waterside hotel award. It is a wonderful recognition of the team and their dedication to the highest standards of excellence in customer service, which is at the heart of everything we do.”
