Call for entries for Considerate Hotel of the Year Awards 2011/12

Hotels showing innovation, passion and dedication to the green agenda are being encouraged to enter the Considerate Hotel of the Year Awards 2011/12.

Accommodation providers at every level - bed and breakfast operations, guesthouses, pubs, inns and restaurants with rooms - can enter the awards, which earlier this year saw Battlesteads hotel and restaurant in Wark-on-Tyne, near Hexham, Northumberland, carry off the highest accolade, the Considerate Hotel of the Year award.

Organised by the Considerate Hoteliers Association (CHA), the awards feature eight categories. They are:

â- The Considerate Supplier of the Year Awards 2011/12 (locally and nationally - two separate awards)
â- The Considerate Small Accommodation Provider of the Year 2011/12
â- The Considerate Sustainable Food 2011/12
â- The Considerate Green Team of the Year 2011/
â- The Considerate Green Champion of the Year 2011/12
â- Best Green Marketing Initiative for 2011/12

CHA director John Firrell said that in order to make a more level playing field entrants were being asked to restrict their material to eight A4 pages. "Those on the short-list will then be asked to make a presentation to the judges," he explained. "We trust this will ensure that everyone gets the same bite of the ‘organically grown' cherry, and indeed encourages even more hotels and accommodation providers to participate."

"Difficult trading conditions, reducing financial resources and markets so often bring out the best in responsible businesses, and so it is with hospitality. Now is not the time to go wobbly. By showing our steel and determination to weather the storm, we will also be showing the world that we care about the business we are in, our guests, staff, community and planet."

The 2011/12 Considerate Hotel of the Year Awards will be presented on 31 May 2012, at a gala lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane.
