A hotel and restaurant in Backwell has been awarded five gold stars from the AA just a year after it opened.

Backwell House, in Farleigh Road, opened as a hotel in December 2016 after being transformed from a family home.

General manager Guy Williams, who runs the property on behalf of the Hobbs family, then opened up a restaurant in April.

The hotel has been given top marks by the AA and the restaurant has been awarded two rosettes, under talented chef Ross Hunter.

Guy Williams said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be recognized by the AA.

“Backwell House has been a dream project into which I’ve poured my heart and soul.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the entire team who contribute daily to its success.

“Particularly, I am delighted for Ross, who is a brilliant chef, with boundless energy and talent. I think this is just the beginning.”
