Leigh Park Hotel and Vineyard in Bradford on Avon has been rewarded with a plaque to mark 25 years with hotel chain Best Western.

Best Western Hotels has over 270 independently and individually owned hotels in Great Britain. Its chairman, Angela Burns, presented the plaque to Leigh Park Hotel’s general manager Pamela Duckett last Monday.

Ms Duckett, who has managed the Grade Two listed hotel since 1996, said: “It was a surprise but a very pleasant one. The hotel benefits from being under this umbrella and we receive bookings from all over the world through Best Western.

“There are also a lot of companies who will only make their corporate bookings through Best Western.

“I do feel that the brand has gone from strength to strength over the years and I am sure that this will continue.”

Limpley Stoke Hotel also received a plaque as they marked 20 years with Best Western.
