Luxury Worcestershire manor named UK’s ‘Best Hotel for Food’

Luxury Worcestershire manor named UK’s ‘Best Hotel for Food’

Eckington Manor has garnered the title of ‘Best Hotel for Food’ at the Luxury Lifestyle Magazine Readers’ Travel Awards.

Having impressed the inaugural awards’ judging panel in February, earning it a place on the official shortlist for the prestigious accolade, Eckington Manor was recently voted by members of the public as the Best Hotel for Food in the Luxury Lifestyle Magazine Readers’ Travel Awards.

Judy Gardner, owner of Eckington Manor, uses some of the finest locally sourced food in the region, with every one of the restaurant’s dishes - fronted by head chef and former MasterChef: The Professionals winner, Mark Stinchcombe - originating from the hotel’s award-winning farm, orchard, vegetable and herb gardens.

Judy said: “We were very proud and humble to have been shortlisted for not one, but two awards, so to actually go on and win one is absolutely incredible. The response we’ve received from the public has been nothing short of overwhelming and we would like to wholeheartedly thank all those who voted for us as the UK’s best hotel for food.

“We work very hard at Eckington Manor to ensure all of our guests enjoy a truly wonderful experience with us. Our state-of-the-art cookery school and restaurant is testament to that and puts us at the forefront of fine cuisine.”

Located on the border of the Cotswolds, Eckington Manor’s romantic location also saw it named second in the ‘Best Hotel for Romance’ category. 

Luxury Lifestyle Magazine’s inaugural travel awards launched in October last year, with the aim to shine a spotlight on the finest hotels in the world.
