Southampton Hospitality Awards 2022

v2022 The Hospitality Awards promote the regional hospitality industry by celebrating success and outstanding achievement. They recognise the fantastic commitment and outstanding contributions that the champions of the hospitality industry put in, both behind-the-scenes and front of house.

Nominations are open throughout October to the hotels and venues that form the association and anyone within those businesses are able to nominate their well deserving staff, managers and colleagues. Shortlisted finalists and the overall winner are chosen by the award category sponsors, with the finalists announced in early December 2021 and the winners revealed at the awards ceremony at Novotel Southampton on 11th February 2022.

Congratulations to all our nominees and finalists!
