Rendezvous Shortlisted for two national tourism awards
It’s been a wonderful few weeks as we’ve welcomed many hundreds of people into the hotel for their Christmas party events. But this week we received even more good news with the notification that the Rendezvous Hotel has been shortlisted in two categories at the British Coach Tourism Awards 2018. This prestigious awards scheme recognises those tourism industry suppliers, including hotels, that understand the needs of coach operators and group travel organisers.
The first category is ‘Accommodation Provider of the Year – Independent Hotels’. The judges were looking for hotels that can demonstrate not only a commitment to welcoming coaches, coach groups and coach drivers, but also how they have developed and enhanced that welcome over the last year. Being shortlisted in this category really does show how the team at the Rendezvous really does step up to the mark when working with coach operators and group travel organisers.
The second category is ‘Coach Tourism Innovation of the Year’, with the judges looking for an innovation introduced in 2017 and that has a direct link, and benefit, to coach tourism. We submitted ‘The Real Yorkshire Experience’, our new groups package that brings together many of Yorkshire’s most popular visitor attractions into a two, three or four-night itinerary, and adds in Yorkshire-themed entertainment and food in the hotel.
The winners will be announced on 21 March 2018.
