The annual Historic Hotels of Europe Awards is a chance to shine the spotlight on our most unique, important and fascinating properties across the continent. From castles to palaces, manors to monasteries, each of our luxurious stays give guests that ‘something special’ - and this is our chance to celebrate them.
Each year, we ask historic-hotel lovers around the world to vote for their most beloved boltholes, in 8 special categories. As we approach our sixth annual awards, we’re inviting those in-the-know travellers, once more, to vote for the crème de la crème of our 400-strong collection.
We would like to THANK YOU for your participation at the Historic Hotels of Europe Award Voting 2018 which is now closed.
