As well as winning the Taste of Kent award and the International Tourism award, the Hythe Imperial spa, hotel and golf resort was also a finalist in the Large Hotel of the Year category.
Nick Gauntlett, managing director of the Hythe Imperial, said: “My team works tirelessly to give our guests first-class service and memorable experiences. These awards confirm what I have always known – the Hythe Imperial Hotel is award-worthy, and our customers love it just as much as we do.
“I am very delighted we won, and I would like to thank every single member of staff at the Hythe Imperial for their hard work.”
Launched in 2017 by Visit Kent and Go To Places, the Kent Tourism Awards are a celebration of the 77,000 people employed in the county’s tourism industry. Recognising dedication and excellence, the awards are designed to share best practice and to reward exceptional standards of customer service. Following an initial round of judging by an expert panel, the winners are selected by a round of mystery shoppers. Overall category winners go on to be entered into the Visit England national Awards for Excellence – the highest accolade in English tourism.
