The 2016 Hotel Cateys are now open for entries and the search is on to recognise the highest achieving businesses and individuals in the sector.
The awards, now in their 10th year, are the hotel industry's only truly independent benchmark of operational excellence.
Since their launch in 2007, the Hotel Cateys have celebrated the most successful hotels, hoteliers and hotel employees across the UK. They were created to recognise and reward those individuals and teams that work tirelessly to make sure their business delivers an exceptional guest experience, day in, day out.
Seventy judges, selected for their expertise and industry knowledge, will meet in September to select the shortlists and winners for 18 categories. The ultimate winners will be announced at a glittering event on 25 November at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.
Successful teams and individuals at the 2015 event included Outstanding Contribution award winner Philip Newman-Hall, formerly managing director of Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, Matthew Tomkinson, executive chef of the Montagu Arms in Beaulieu, Hampshire, who won Hotel Chef of the Year (fewer than 250 covers), and Nick Jones, founder and chief executive of Soho House & Co, who was named Hotelier of the Year.
