Gisborough Hall has been named as a finalist in the UK’s biggest hospitality awards.
The 4* hotel has made the shortlist of the White Rose Awards in the ‘Large Hotel of the Year’ category.
Organisers say this year’s awards received a record number of entries from hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions.
Gisborough Hall was successful in the application process and will be competing against York hotels The Principal and The Grand, The Devonshire Arms near Skipton, The Black Swan in Helmsley, Waterton Park in Wakefield and Coniston Hotel in Skipton.
The overall winners will be announced on 12th November at a special event attended by over 1000 people in Harrogate.
Gisborough Hall became a fully-independent and self-managed hotel in April 2017 and employs over 100 local people across the hotel, in its restaurants, bars and Revival Zone Spa. This number is set to increase further in the coming year with the creation of a new multi-million-pound spa which it’s hoped will be open by Christmas 2019.
A recent AA inspection rated Gisborough Hall as one of the top destinations in the North East and North Yorkshire, retaining its AA’s four ‘Silver Star’ rating for its overall quality. The silver stars mark Gisborough Hall out as being of superior quality and are one of the highest hotel accolades available in the UK.
The luxury, four-star hotel, on the outskirts of Guisborough, was named as one of TripAdvisor’s top-rated places to stay last summer, gaining another Certificate of Excellence for its exemplary standards and service.
In addition, Gisborough Hall is also one of TripAdvisor’s ‘Green Leader’ award holders in recognition of its commitment to environmentally-friendly practices.
Ruairidh Taylor, hotel manager, said: “The White Rose Awards are regarded as some of the most prestigious industry awards. This is a tremendous accolade and I am incredibly proud of the whole team during an exciting year as we became fully independent and appointed a new management team.
“This year’s entries were of an exceptionally high standard and we beat off some stiff competition to even reach the final.”
The White Rose Awards are organised by Welcome to Yorkshire and celebrate the region’s £8 billion tourism industry.
