National Geographic Traveller (UK) announces the winners of its inaugural Big Sleep Awards 2017


SALUTING the taste-makers and game-changers of the hotel world, National Geographic Traveller (UK) reveals the winners of its inaugural Big Sleep Awards 2017.

With the help of readers and a panel of judges, they’ve selected the cream of the accommodation crop – with 20 categories ranging from ultra-luxury suites and spas to value-for-money boutique properties and readers’ favourites.

Pat Riddell, editor of National Geographic Traveller, said, ‘Hotels can be a window into a world, a place to escape and relax and a decadent, hedonistic treat – often all rolled into one. We’re celebrating the hotels that we – and our readers – think particularly stand out.’

‘A huge congratulations to all the winners and runners-up – it’s been a very tough process and we’re very excited to reward our favourite hotels and places to stay in what will be the first of many Big Sleep Awards.’
