Scilly businesses have had a successful week for awards and nominations.

And last night, it was Tresco Estate’s turn for industry recognition.

The island’s spa gained Bronze in the Wellbeing category of the Cornwall Tourism Awards in Newquay.

And their Hell Bay Hotel was once again named the Best Small Hotel in the region.

It’s the third year in succession that Phillip Callan’s team on Bryher has gained the Gold award.

This year there’s been strong competition with a record 172 entries and the judges made 111 assessment visits to businesses.

Awards organiser Robin Barker says each year he is stunned by how tourism businesses continue to reinvent themselves and their visitor offering.

Hell Bay will now go onto the Southwest competition and potentially the England final.
