Castle House Hotel, Best Herefordshire Hotel
Finalists of Visit Herefordshire and Visit Worcestershire's Tourism Awards for Excellence 2018 were invited to an exclusive awards ceremony held at The Bank House Hotel, Spa & Golf Club on Tuesday 11 September.

Over 100 people from tourism businesses in the two counties arrived at the event, ready to hear the announcement of the Winners, Highly Commended and Commended for each of the 12 categories unveiled for this year's awards. Earlier this year, Visit Herefordshire and Visit Worcestershire announced the addition of two brand NEW categories for the 2018 awards, allowing businesses to apply for Best Sustainable Business and Best Tourism Pub for the first time.
