Regarding the Winner of Winners Award, the Judges said;

“There are no criteria for this award. At the end of the judging panel meeting its members are asked to identify any entrant which, in their view, has shone out as an exemplar in its field. On this occasion the debate was short.

 This year’s Winner of Winners was visited independently by two mystery visitors. Both of them came away declared themselves “inspired” by a business that is doing things that others regard as impossible, or simply hadn’t thought of.  It is a genuine exemplar to all tourism businesses on how to widen their audience, be accessible, and deliver excellence.”
