The awards are open to any UK or international boutique, lifestyle or hybrid hotel, and properties can compete in various size categories from 1 – 20 rooms, 21 – 50 rooms and 51+ rooms.
A huge variety of accommodation types fall under the classification of “boutique, lifestyle or hybrid”, from rustic game lodges to luxury hostels, and from spa retreats to city suites.
Boutique hotels are known for focussing on character and personalised service, often together with a stylish design and flair. Lifestyle hotels follow suit with a “quirky, cutting-edge, avant-garde, trendy, funky, charming” nature according to Xotels, but unlike boutique hotels, are often associated with a group or brand name. Hybrid hotels blend the best of both mainstream hotel experiences and those of serviced apartments, focussing on providing a unique, personalised experience to their guests and letting them choose which services they want.
If you’re not sure whether you fall under any of these umbrellas, feel free to contact us and we will help to determine whether your property is eligible.
Boutique, lifestyle and hybrid hotels of all shapes and sizes from across the world have entered (and won!) the BoHo Awards in previous years just by collecting reviews and guest feedback. You could join the ranks of BoHos winners if you’re already using an existing feedback tool, or can test-run world-class technology by using a free BoHos GuestRevu account.
