Hotel Cateys 2023 shortlist revealed

The shortlist for the 2023 Hotel Cateys has been revealed, featuring the most creative and successful hotel operators and their employees in the UK.

The awards, supported by headline sponsors Bidfood, remain the hotel industry's only truly independent benchmark of operational excellence, with entrants judged by their peers and industry experts.

Over 100 judges, selected for their experience and industry knowledge, met this week for vigorous debate and discussion at the Royal Automobile Club to select the shortlists and debate the winners

Shortlists are not revealed for the Hotelier of the Year, sponsored by Casna Group, the Outstanding Contribution Award, sponsored by Karcher, or the Extra Mile Award, sponsored by Quadrant. These winners will be revealed at a glittering ceremony at the Park Plaza Westminster on Monday 13 November.
