With Christmas lights adorning the ancient 14th century coaching inn, nestled in the heart of picturesque Broadway, the team will have even more to celebrate this festive season, with the announcement that The Lygon Arms has been voted the ‘Cotswolds Best Hotel of the Year 2023’.
The Cotswolds Awards, established by Cotswolds Concierge in 2015, celebrate the very best this beautiful destination has to offer, from charming villages and idyllic countryside to award-winning restaurants and unique visitor attractions. All businesses that have been nominated were voted for by the public, and the winners were announced on the 1st December.
Commenting on the award, Graeme Nesbitt, General Manager, and Innkeeper of The Lygon Arms said: “We have a long and remarkable history, our team are proud to be custodians of this historic building and to continue the time-honoured tradition of providing excellent hospitality to guests stepping through the ancient doorway of this celebrated coaching inn. Winning this award is a real recognition of the hard work and dedication of our team in what has been our most successful year of trading to date.”
