Planning a trip to the IOM?

The Gold and Silver Awards were introduced last year, mirroring a scheme operating in the UK by VisitBritain to recognize the best achieving hotels and guest accommodation.  Properties are assessed annually and the Awards are based solely on quality, with an emphasis on service and hospitality.  The guest accommodation should also reflect the quality of comfort and cleanliness in bedrooms and bathrooms, and the service and hospitality given throughout a guest’s stay.
