Another excellent result at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards

Tourism businesses from across the South West celebrated at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards on 8th February 2013 at Cornwall's Eden Project, where 61 different awards were announced following a rigorous judging process in which over 300 entries were considered.

The Headland was delighted to receive the Silver Award for Large Hotel of the Year, adding to its recent success at the Cornwall Tourism Awards in October 2012.

Darryl Reburn, General Manager of The Headland, said: 'We are constantly trying to improve our product and service so that we can continue to exceed the expectations of our guests. It feels that the hotel is going from strength to strength at the moment and we hope this continues!"

This year's awards were hosted by well know BBC Radio Journalist Daphne Skinnard, with presentations made by Eden Project founder Sir Tim Smit and entertainer Lloyd Griffith.

Winners came from across the South West, from as far west as Scilly and east as Wiltshire, south as Devon and Cornwall and as far north as the Cotswolds.

Chair of Judges, Alistair Handyside, said: "Once again, leading tourism businesses in the South West have excelled themselves in maintaining a strong tradition of innovation and quality".
