All but one of the top 15 business hotels in the UK are in London, according to the annual Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards.
The awards, announced this week at The Royal Institution of Great Britain, London, found readers had voted London as their favourite UK City, followed by Edinburgh, Bath, Liverpool and York.
Fourteen of the top 15 UK business hotels were London-based, with The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park scoring best overall, followed by the InterContinental London Park Lane, The Dorchester, Claridge’s, and the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane. The only non-London entry was Edinburgh’s The Balmoral, in 11th place.
The top Hotel Spa in the UK is C-Side at Cowley Manor in Cheltenham thanks to its impressive ‘body treatments’ and ‘facilities’, while readers chose British Airways as Best Business Airline.
Italy won the favourite Country category, New York won favourite Overseas City while the Greek Islands was top in the Islands category. The Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa took the prestigious number 1 spot in The World’s Top 100 list.
