London and Bath boast the highest number of top-rated hotels in the UK, with seven each in the top 50 and three in the top 20. The South West as a region boasts 12 hotels in the top 50, and the North West boasts ten.
Denise Bartlett, UK Public Relations: “With its excellent customer service and exquisite attention to detail, it is easy to see why luxury London hotel, Hotel 41, is our top-rated hotel this year. It is interesting to note, however, the high number of B&Bs in the top 50 hotels in the UK. With B&Bs averaging £60 per night rated as highly as hotels averaging up to £500 per night, it seems users are satisfied by the family-run environment and friendly service offered by B&Bs.
The trivago Top Hotel Awards aim to judge all accommodation fairly, whether they are a guest house in Pitlochry, a B&B in Bath or a luxury hotel in London. It is really encouraging to see such a range of accommodation, both in terms of price and geographical location, in our top 50.”
Malcolm Hendry, General Manager, Hotel 41: “Everyone at Hotel 41 is delighted and honoured at being named the Number One Hotel in the UK in trivago’s 2015 Top Hotel Awards. We are thrilled to have been recognised by trivago’s community of travellers in this hotly contended category and would like to thank them for publishing such positive reviews. Myself and the dedicated team of staff at Hotel 41 are committed to ensuring that each and every guest leaves our hotel having had a memorable and truly special stay. I think it’s this commitment to deliver a highly personalised service and the desire to exceed expectations every single time that has helped to secure this prestigious accolade, of which we are all very proud.”
