2018 BoHos shortlist revealed

UK: The shortlisted hotels for the inaugural 2018 BoHos – the Boutique Hotel Guest Experience Awards – have been revealed.

To emphasise the importance of guest reviews and feedback to independent hotels, the BoHos were launched last year when we joined forces with leading guest feedback and online reputation management specialist  GuestRevu and renowned hospitality management institution  Glion Institute of Higher Education.

The BoHos reward the boutique, lifestyle and hybrid hotels who provide the very best in guest experiences. The awards are unique in that the winners are decided, not by judges, but by the hotels’ guests, using a combination of aggregated verified guest feedback from review sites and booking engines worldwide, and direct guest feedback via questionnaires. Each has a 50 per cent weighting in a hotel’s overall score to give a true picture of the guest experience provided.
