Lancashire wins nine awards for the country’s best holiday accommodation as Visit England announces ROSE winners

A number of Lancashire hotels, holiday parks and independent accommodation providers have won top industry awards.

VisitEngland announced the 100 ROSE of the Year award winners today (6 May) and many places across the county walked away with outstanding honour. The Clifton Arms Hotel, Lytham, Riverside Barn Guesthouse, Preston and Wagon & Horses, Lancaster are just some of the Lancashire winners.

The ROSE Awards honor accommodation providers across England who offer visitors the warmest of welcomes. Now in its sixth year, after being discontinued in 2020 and 2021, they celebrate establishments, regardless of star rating, style or accommodation type, where owners, management and employees offer exceptional experiences to their customers.

ROSE Award winners were nominated by VisitEngland’s Quality Program assessors and selected based on feedback from assessors and online feedback from overseas and domestic visitors. Award recipients include all types of accommodation from bed and breakfasts (B&Bs)/guest houses, lodges and hotels to parks, campsites, glamping sites and hostels and cover a range of ratings from three to five-star, as well as accredited properties.

VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said: “It’s great to see the ROSE Awards back as we celebrate and congratulate accommodation businesses across England who excel in customer service and create exceptional experiences that inspire visitors to come back time after time.

“The awards are also a wonderful showcase of the breadth of exceptional accommodation across England, with visitors spoiled for choice.
