Scilly’s Best Businesses Make It To Regional Tourism Awards
Four islands’ businesses have made it through to the finals of the Cornwall Tourism awards.
Visit Cornwall say they had a record number of islands’ entries within the 17 award categories, covering hotels, restaurants and tourism service companies.
Juliet’s Garden is one of three cafés being considered in the Café & Tearoom Of The Year category.
Head Chef Andrew O’Connor said the nomination was “fantastic” but it is owner Juliet May who deserves all the credit.
He told Radio Scilly it’s a great achievement, “recognising 30 years of work.”
Tresco’s New Inn is a finalist for Pub of the Year. Landlord, Robin Lawson said he’s delighted to have been nominated.
He says The New Inn has had a successful year and the team have been working hard as ever to offer their customers the best standards of quality and service.
Another Tresco Estate business, The Hell Bay Hotel on Bryher, is up for the Best Small Hotel award.
St Martin’s Dive School has also been put forward for the Tourism Activity, Sport & Experience Of The Year award.
Anna Cawthray says it’s great that Scilly has been recognised for the quality of the tourism products on offer.
She says the Dive School is “thrilled” to be finalists and “flattered to be in such illustrious company.”
Anna will be attending the award ceremony at Newquay’s Headland Hotel on 7th November.
