We have just heard that the final judging for the 2013 Devon Tourism Awards has been completed and we are thrilled to confirm that The Old Rectory Hotel is one of the finalists in the Hotel of the Year category.
This means that The Hotel will be awarded either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended award at this year’s Devon Tourism Awards ceremony at the Grand Hotel, Torquay on Wednesday 13th November.
The judging took account of our exhaustive entry form, along with web searches, emails, telephone calls and visits, plus any available additional evidence. More than ever before, judges were looking for a digital presence that inspired and informed visitors, with good management of online reputations and active use of social media. The panel was looking for all elements of the business to be excellent, with some of them outstanding. To be amongst the winners, given the level of competition, is a very significant achievement indeed.
