HEVER CASTLE’S luxurious Bed and Breakfast has won a silver medal at the nationwide Visit England Awards for Excellence.
The five-star holiday destination scooped the prestigious accolade in the category Boutique Accommodation of the Year at a gala ceremony in the Bath Assembly Rooms.
The B&B, which opened in 2012 and has received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for four years running, became eligible for national recognition after winning the Beautiful South Award for Small Hotel/Boutique Accommodation last year.
There are 28 bedrooms in the Astor and Anne Boleyn Wings of the Tudor Village, an Edwardian extension to the castle.
Guests have access to the castle itself as well as some of the 125 acres of award-winning gardens that are closed to the general public.
Prices for a double room range from £125 up to £265 for the Edward VII suite.
Manager Roland Smith said: ‘We are delighted Hever Castle’s bed and breakfast is recognised as being in the top three in the country.
‘We pride ourselves on our excellent service and it is testament to the hard work of all our staff to have won silver.’
