Pride of Britain Hotels is delighted to announce that 10 member hotels within its 50-strong UK luxury hotel collection have picked up prestigious awards at the AA Hospitality Awards 2019/2020. Members have also been awarded five-star ratings for the first time.

Grove of Narberth in Pembrokeshire has been named AA Hotel of the Year – Wales, for exemplifying a superb privately-owned luxury hotel. The property already holds three AA Rosettes for its restaurant, The Fernery, and is perfectly situated for guests to explore the Pembrokeshire coastline.

Two Pride of Britain Hotels properties have been awarded five AA Red Stars The Torridon, an impressive Victorian former hunting lodge set in 60 acres in the Scottish Highlands, and Seaham Hall, an historic Georgian country house with views to the Durham Heritage Coast.
