UK: The shortlisted hotels for the inaugural BoHos - the Boutique Hotel Guest Experience Awards - have been revealed.

To emphasise the importance of guest reviews and feedback to independent hotels, we have joined forces with leading guest feedback and online reputation management specialist  GuestRevu and renowned hospitality management institution  Glion Institute of Higher Education, to launch the BoHos - the Boutique Hotel Guest Experience Awards.

The BoHos will reward the boutique, lifestyle and hybrid hotels who provide the very best in guest experiences. The awards will be unique in that the winners will be decided, not by judges, but by the hotels' guests, using a combination of aggregated verified guest feedback from review sites and booking engines worldwide, and direct guest feedback via questionnaires. Each will have a 50 per cent weighting in a hotel's overall score to give a true picture of the guest experience provided.
