Hilden Style Awards Finalists Announced for 2015

Updated on: September 15 2015

Are these the nine most stylish independent hospitality establishments in the UK?

We are pleased to  announced this year’s finalists for the Hilden Style Awards, which celebrates and recognises style and interior design from the independent hospitality sector.

Overall there are nine finalists for this year’s three categories; Most Stylish Bedroom, Stylish Bathroom and Stylish Dining Experience. With record breaking entries, this year the judges had a tough job of narrowing it down to just three per category.

Rod Nutter, Style Awards judge and Commercial Director at Hilden.co.uk said: “This year’s calibre was simply outstanding and all the judges came to the table with different opinions, it was difficult to narrow it down and actually took us longer than it ever has done in previous years to reach a unanimous decision.”

Rod continues: “The awards continue to grow in esteem year on year and attracts some of the most beautiful and stunning secret escapes in the UK. Anyone looking for inspiration or a staycation this year can definitely take note of our final nine.”

Alongside Rod this year there are four renowned judges from the hospitality industry; Anne Britton, Executive Housekeeper of the Jumeriah Carlton Tower Hotel London, Thom Hetherington, CEO of Holden Media, organisers of the Northern Restaurant & Bar Exhibition, Kerry Adams, Regional Chair of the UK Housekeepers Association (UKHA) Yorkshire & North-East and Nora Elias, Editor of Professional Spa & Wellness magazine.
