07 Nov Awards add up for Talland Bay Hotel
The team at the Talland Bay Hotel at Porthallow near Looe in Cornwall is celebrating their seventh year of scooping a win at the Cornwall Tourism Awards, in the same month as retaining the double AA Rosette for the hotel’s Terrace Restaurant.
Launched in 2001, the Cornwall Tourism Awards champion the stars of the Cornish tourism industry. Talland Bay Hotel was recognised with a Bronze in the Small/ Boutique Hotel of the Year category at this year’s awards ceremony, held at the Headland Hotel on 2 November. The hotel was also Highly Commended in the Dog Friendly Business category.
This follows on from retaining its two Rosettes and four-star rating from the AA, as well as being graded five-stars for the dining following a visit from the prestigious motoring organisation’s inspector.
In September Talland Bay Hotel was named the Best Restaurant in the South West at the Taste of the West Awards.
“I’m immensely proud of all the significant achievements the team has racked up this past year,” said owner Dr Kevin O’Sullivan. “These stellar accolades reinforce the hotel’s position amongst Cornwall’s finest places to dine and stay, and we look forward to further building on this in 2018.”
Congratulating the hotel, Cornwall Tourism Awards organiser, Robin Barker said: “Talland Bay Hotel ranks amongst Cornwall’s best establishments and should be justifiably delighted with their award and fantastic track record over the years. Excellence is not just about performing on occasions, but about consistency, and Talland Bay is clearly exemplary in this respect.”
“Wonderful to see the Talland Bay Hotel once again gaining recognition at the awards,” said Mark Camp, local tour guide and Membership & Website Co-ordinator at Visit Cornwall. “The hotel continues to do a great job of keeping south-east Cornwall on the map. It was also good to see the Talland Bay Beach Café winning an award, a stop there makes the walk from Looe to Polperro even better!”
