UK: The boutique and lifestyle hotel sector has given The BoHo awards a resounding endorsement, with more than 50 entries received in the first week.

Properties from as far afield as Australia, South Africa, Vietnam, Kenya, South Korea, Italy, Russia, Zambia, Brazil and the UK have registered for the awards, which have been launched by Boutique Hotel News in partnership with online reputation management specialist GuestRevu and renowned hospitality management institution Glion Institute of Higher Education.

Among the noteworthy names to have entered already are The Draycott and Hotel Gotham in the UK; Royal St Andrews and Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve in South Africa, Le Narcisse Blanc Hotel & Spa in France; and Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel & Spa in Spain.

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.
 
The awards are open to any UK or international boutique, lifestyle or hybrid hotel. To enter they need to be using a guest feedback and online reputation management solution in order to provide the necessary verified guest reviews. If they don't currently have a solution, GuestRevu is offering a free two-month trial, worth up to £300, to hotels who wish to sign up and enter.
 
The award entry period runs until February 28th. Then each hotel's data will be collected over a two month period, starting from the 1st March. At the end of the two months, each entrant's guest reviews and direct feedback will be independently evaluated, scored and ranked by Glion students and faculty at the renowned Glion Institute of Higher Education in the UK.
