It’s the first year this category has been included.

Back in 2012, the Star Castle won the César Award from the same awards body. That honours the best hoteliers and is named after celebrated Swiss hotel owner César Ritz.

They make their choices following inspection and properties are graded on criteria that cover the quality of the accommodation, food and service.

Manager James Francis says an award like this ”really sets a hotel apart and genuinely makes a difference in terms of interest and bookings.”

His father, Robert, says he’s “thrilled and delighted” to win the award and says it is testimony to the great work of all their staff.
