The Style Awards are a celebration of all kinds of establishment. So whether you run a rustic cottage nestled in the countryside, work in a slick and modern city centre hotel or manage a top of the range restaurant serving the most sumptuous food, these awards are for you.
After a very successful first year we are excited to announce the Hilden Style Awards are back for 2014, bigger and better than ever. The competition is now launched and will be running right through to September, looking to showcase the most stylish hotels, B&Bs, self catering venues and restaurants across the UK. We have added further categories this year and are offering bigger and better prizes, giving those in the hospitality industry more chance to gain the recognition they deserve. We’re looking for establishments that make use of key trends and accentuate their own style with beautiful uses of interior design and stylish furniture.
What we’re looking for
The rules are simple; we want you to showcase your style! There are three categories this year, offering your establishment even more chance of winning. These are:
- Independent Hotel
- B&B, Guesthouses & Self Catering establishments
- Stylish Dining Experience
It’s not just the guestrooms we’re focusing on. You may run an intimate wedding venue, have theme rooms throughout, boast a truly romantic setting or provide your guests with lots of luxurious added extras. We do ask that at least one of the pictures you send in showcases your luxury linen in some way. To enter you will need to tell us briefly why your establishment deserves to win and attach at least one picture. You can find out further details here, along with a full list of our terms and conditions.
All the latest entries will be added to our website and promoted on our social media sites. You will be able to have a look at last years entries here on our Pinterest board.
And the prizes?
Each of the lucky winners can look forward to a bundle of prizes including:
- A years supply of luxury linen for your establishment*
- £250 to spend at interior designers and furniture specialists DeskCentre
- Mini iPad
- Glass trophy or plaque
- Certificate and online winners badge for use on your website
- Double page spread in our Style Guide publication
- Included in other promotions including on our website and social media
How will the awards be judged?
A panel of judges will be used to pick the winner of the Hilden Style Award 2014. Each category will be whittled down to a top ten and then again to the top three establishments. These three hotels, B&Bs, self catering venues or restaurants will be visited by our judges to choose an overall winner. We’re happy to announce this years judges consist of Trivago, Boutique Hotelier, DeskCentre and the Vision group.
Last year’s success
Last year’s winner, Glencoe House, was crowned the most stylish hotel in the Style Awards. They received an iPad, a winners badge for the website, a glass trophy, £100 of luxury linen items and had a double page spread in our Hilden Style Guide. The guestroom they submitted as their final entry showed a real touch of class incorporating dark woods, elegant furnishings and subtly patterned bed spreads. This style carried throughout the hotel with ample amounts of natural and modern lighting to highlight its beauty.
* Please note a years supply of linen will consist of 3 sets of sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers times the number of rooms your establishment has for hotels, B&Bs, guesthouses and self-catering establishments.
