Buffs Awards and Achievements
Bristol, Bath & Somerset Tourism Awards 2017
On Thursday 9th November numerous businesses joined together at Taunton County Cricket Club to celebrate the Bristol, Bath & Somerset Tourism Awards 2017.
After 6 months of assessment and judging by a panel of experts the winners were announced by Laura Rawlings from BBC Radio Bristol, who was joined on stage by Marcus Trescothick MBE.
The winners were presented with individually crafted, hand inscribed awards by Will Shakspeare, from Shakspeare Glass in Langport.
Due to winning Silver in the Spa & Well-being category against two other fantastic Spa's; Thermae Bath Spa winning Bronze & Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa winning Gold, we are automatically assessed again to see if we can make the short list for our category in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards in February 2018.
2017 has been a fantastic year and we are delighted to have won four awards. Without our amazing, hard working team these awards wouldn't be achievable, we are so proud to share it with you all.
Finally we'd like to thank everyone for all the messages of congratulations we've had.

Professional Beauty Awards 2014
2014 Finalist Day Spa of the Year
In November 2013 we were pleased to announce that yet again we had been short listed as a finalist for the Day Spa of the Year category at the Professional Beauty Awards 2014.
To be recognised as one of the top six Day Spa's short listed for this award in the UK & Northern Ireland was an achievement in itself.
Unfortunately yet again we were pipped to the post and didn't get to bring the award home. We had a fantastic night celebrating none the less and we will continue to deliver the five star service that we are known for.
Professional Beauty Awards 2013
2013 Finalist Day Spa of the Year
In November 2012 we were pleased to announce that we had been short listed as a finalist for the 2013 Professional Beauty Awards in the Day Spa of The Year category.
This was an achievement in itself to be recognised as one of the top six Day Spa's in the UK & Northern Ireland.
Unfortunately on this occasion we didn't win and were unable to add another award to live alongside our first. We did however have a great night celebrating getting to the final and will enter the awards again later this year in the hope we make it to the final for 2014!
British Beauty & Spa Awards 2009/2010 Day Spa of the year Winner
When we submitted our application for the Best Day Spa in the UK, as voted by a panel of peers on behalf of the industry’s leading Beauty & Spa magazine, we resolved ourselves that the experience and feedback would assist us in our pursuit of excellence. We were delighted to be shortlisted but never imagined that we would win, especially in such esteemed company and on the first occasion that we had entered a competition.
When we decided to take some of the team to the presentation dinner in London, we thought that the night would be fun and that the experience would be good for all especially having worked so hard. As the penultimate award we waited for what seemed an eternity, we didn’t dare believe that we could rub shoulders with and beat such industry giants. We waited and waited with the tension growing and when our name was announced, well, it doesn’t take much imagination; tears, elation and the sudden realisation that we really were considered by industry leaders to be that good. To really understand what we mean you really have to experience Buff in the flesh!
