Stratord's Hotel Indigo up for prestigious award

Ian Hughes 26th Dec, 2019

HOTEL Indigo in Stratford is in the running for a prestigious award.

The Chapel Street hotel has been shortlisted as a finalist in the West Midlands Tourism Awards 2020.

The boutique hotel has been nominated in the New Tourism Business Award category and will find out if it has won in February.

There are 43 finalists vying for prizes in 15 categories. Regional winners will automatically qualify for the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence next June.

Hotel Indigo Stratford upon Avon, formerly The Falcon Hotel, opened its doors in April after a multi-million-pound restoration . The grade 2 listed building, which dates back to the 16th century, was restored over 22-months.

General manager Carl Davies-Phillips said: “We are delighted to be nominated as a finalist in the West Midlands Tourism Awards, especially in our first year of opening. It has been an incredible year so far. Within just months of opening we have also been ranked the number 1 hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon on TripAdvisor. Winning this award would be a fantastic acknowledgement of how hard my team works.”

Roger Mendonca, Chief Operating Officer of the West Midlands Growth Company, said the awards would shine a spotlight on the venues which help make the region a destination of choice for national and international visitors.

He added tourist numbers, spend and hotel occupancy were at an all-time high in the region – with the tourist industry in the West Midlands now worth £12.6 billion and supporting more than 135,000 jobs.
