Hidden Gems & Star Amongst Stars Award 2018

The Hidden Gems and Star Amongst Stars Award are for brilliant businesses that leave all their guests demanding an encore. We will be selecting an initial shortlist of nine regional winning properties – the UK’s real Hidden Gems. These nine properties will be announced on the night, and will then be whittled down to one overall Star Amongst Stars! Our decision will be based on a combination of key performance indicators (from performance online, guest reviews etc) and information from the property about what makes them unique. We asked properties to tell us their story, about why they should be a winner and what makes them special, the kind of place that once people find them, they never want to leave.

Hidden Gems and Star Amongst Stars Award judging criteria

  • Nine regional winners will be selected
  • We will use data about the property’s performance online and review scores
  • What makes the property unique and special?
  • How did the property come to be guest accommodation?
  • How did they get into the wonderful world of running guest accommodation?

We received 100s of entries for this year’s eviivo Awards, and would like to thank everyone who entered, allowing our judging panel to complete the difficult task of shortlisting for the Star Amongst Stars Award.

Congratulations to all of the shortlisted properties below, and best of luck when the winners are announced at the eviivo Awards 2018 ceremony on October 16th!
