Choose the Very Best; Vote for Your Favourite Hotel and You Could Spend a Week Cruising the Med


UNTIL relatively recently, a weekend away in Britain as often as not meant migraine inducing wallpaper, bathroom suites in a choice of avocado or peach, and breakfasts drowning in rancid lard. But the hotel industry has travelled a long way in a few years. Who hasn't heard of the sharply designed (and phenomenally successful) Tresanton in St Mawes, Cornwall? Or Babington House in Somerset, the city-slick country cousin of Soho House? Given the rise of inventive foodie bolt holes from Norfolk (the Victoria at Holkham) to Wales (the Felinfach Griffin, in Brecon), not forgetting state of the-art spa meccas (St David's Hotel and Spa in Cardiff), there are fewer reasons than ever to involve Heathrow, Gatwick or Stansted in your weekend getaway plans.

Have you ever had an unforgettable stay in a cosy country house hotel?

Or have you found a chic urban retreat that's just so good that you find yourself going back year after If you think you know the finest bolt hole in the UK, then we'd like to hear about it. This year, for the first time, the British Travel Awards introduces the "Best UK Hotel" category, sponsored by the Evening Standard.

We're asking you to nominate your favourite hotel for the award. Service, quality and individuality are the hallmarks of a good hotel, including excellent food and value for money, but your reason can be individual.

Readers who vote gain automatic entry to a draw and the prize is a week's Mediterranean cruise for two.

Lines are open until midnight on 10 October and the winner of the holiday will be announced after the British Travel Awards ceremony on 24 October and notified in writing thereafter. To find out how to vote turn to Page 62.
