It’s always nice to win an award. To gain recognition for the hard work, dedication and investment that goes into making a successful business confirms something that you and your team already knew; you deserve it!
When Hotel Meudon was acquired by the Kingfisher Group in 2020, the goal was to renovate, restructure and completely revitalise the business, and to create a luxury hotel with exceptional accommodation and a truly top-class food and beverage offering, something befitting this grand property and its breath-taking surroundings. In short, we were aiming for the stars, but to win Gold at the Taste of the West Awards 2021/2022 in both the Hotel and Restaurant categories, not even one full year into trading, is a fantastic achievement!
Hotel Meudon was described by the judge as providing “An exceptional guest experience…from the initial booking of the room to the greeting on arrival the whole experience left us thinking that this hotel was something rather wonderful and we can’t wait to return!” Special mention went to the wonderful team: “In my many visits to hotels in the Southwest I have never witnessed the whole team of staff of this calibre.”
Speaking about Restaurant Meudon, the judge went on to say: “The food was excellent, the presentation and service were really ‘as good as it gets’ in our view. Michelin quality!”
“This was a truly wonderful meal from start to finish supported by a waiter and waitress whose skills were very evident, their knowledge and professionalism was a treat to witness, phenomenal.”
Our General Manager, Samantha Banks, was overjoyed with the results. “To win these awards and receive such delightful praise during our first year of trading is incredible and we are absolutely thrilled, to put it mildly! Well done team!”
The awards are designed to promote and support the fantastic local food and drink in the southwest, organised by the largest independent regional food group in the UK, Taste of the West. It is lovely to be recognised for everything that we have strived to create, especially in challenging times, and receiving these accolades will help us push on and keep Hotel Meudon at the top of our game. Here’s to many more!
