A Yorkshire hotel has been named one of the most luxurious in the country, earning five coveted red stars by a team of AA experts.
Grantley Hall in Ripon, North Yorkshire was one of only two to win the top prize this time, alongside the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House in Windermere.
The judges said the hotel was “a wonderful fusion of old and new with the original 17th century lobby.
“It opened in July 2019 and offers award-winning restaurants as well as a state-of-the-art luxury gym, wellness center and spa. Set in a beautiful park with 47 high quality, decorated rooms and suites individually there is an array of areas and lounges so there is always a place to lose yourself. Expect attentive and friendly service with warm Yorkshire hospitality. ”
General Manager Andrew McPherson said, âWe are very proud to receive these much sought after Red Stars alongside the Gilpin Hotel.
âIt’s a fantastic recognition for our hard-working team here at Grantley Hall. We would like to thank AA for maintaining these prices throughout the pandemic and for giving all of us something to focus on.
“Our team works extremely hard to provide exceptional service to all of our customers, so we are truly delighted to have received this honor.”
Simon Numphud, Managing Director of AA Media, said: âAs the hospitality industry reopens after a difficult year, it is an honor to announce our latest AA Red Star recipients.
âWith the public looking forward to traveling further afield, it is inspiring to see hotels like these deliver impeccable service and exceptional stays, providing guests with a comfortable and reassuring return to the hospitality industry. ”
