Christmas comes early for the Hythe Imperial

17th December 2019

A glamorous landmark hotel on the east coast of Kent has had its Christmas wish come true, by being named the winner of two categories in the 2019 Kent Tourism Awards, organised by Visit Kent.   

As well as the honour of winning the Taste of Kent award and the International Tourism award, the 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.

The award-winning hotel in the resort town of Hythe is still taking bookings for its lavish Christmas lunches. With an AA rosette and two brand new awards under its belt, eating at the hotel promises to be a fantastic experience.

There’s a special Christmas day lunch available as well as designated menus for festive lunches and New Year’s Eve.
