In awarding Warblers Retreat Overall Supreme Bed & Breakfast of the Year, the judges commented “When an industry has been so affected by a world wide pandemic it is extra ordinary that we see businesses that have really turned themselves around to find a solution that works.  Not only have our Vision Insurance Business Excellence Award Finalists done this but they have also created an incredible foundation to set themselves apart from the rest.

The beautiful Warblers Retreat has guests raving about their stays.  Their sound and innovative business practices will stand them in such great stead going forward.  With operators like Warblers Retreat, the hosted accommodation industry is in great hands. “
