Dorset Tourism Awards Silver Award 2017

“We opened the Lodges just 7 months ago and we’re absolutely thrilled to have won our first award so soon. It has been an honour to work on such an exciting and successful new project offering a truly alternative place to stay in Bournemouth right by the sea” – Kim, Beach Lodges Manager.

The Dorset Tourism Awards celebrates Dorset’s leading tourism businesses and individuals.

This year’s awards, sponsored by Saffery Champness, saw 123 entries in the Dorset awards and 644 across the South West. From these, the panel selected 63 Dorset finalists based on evidence and reports from the judges carried out a record 90 visits to businesses – often mystery visits. Judges were looking for evidence not just of ‘good’ but of ‘excellent’ hence to be a finalist is a very significant achievement indeed!
