The inaugural Southampton & Region Hoteliers Association Hospitality Awards Ceremony (sponsored by Cab My Ride) took place on 8th February 2019 at Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Southampton and what a night it was! The awards are not for profit and were in aid of our chosen charity: FareShare. You helped us raise over £1500!

There was a total 10 awards presented on the night and they recognised the fantastic commitment that the champions of the Hotel industry put in, both behind-the-scenes and front of house. To read more about the evening, read our latest news piece here.
