Paul and Geraldine Milsom proudly receive the Hotel of the Year Award from Pride of Britain Hotels.

Pride of Britain is a consortium of independently owned luxury hotels. They are the very best that the UK offers for hospitality and so to top the charts of the near 40 members takes some doing. Milsom Hotels and Restaurants have invested heavily in Maison Talbooth, set within the Dedham Vale on the border of Suffolk and Essex. The unique hotel,
in its secluded location, has wonderfully refurbished bedrooms, a state of the art pool house and heated pool, tennis courts, hot tubs, the 2010 Award Nominated Treatment Rooms and the finest cuisine that East Anglia has to offer. It is testament to the ethos of the company and the hard work by all their team that they have won this award.
This years Pride of Britain AGM and award ceremony was held at fellow POB member, The Goring, London.
