Booking group travel? Why not come and stay with the group travel experts?

We are specialists in arranging group travel hotel accommodation in Yorkshire

Although we understand that you’re completely free to choose whichever hotel you like for your group holiday, as specialists in group holiday accommodation, making you feel welcome is very important to the team here at the Rendezvous Hotel.

We believe our location helps to set us apart from the rest too. Our family-run hotel enjoys a fantastic location on the banks of the picturesque Leeds Liverpool Canal, just a minute or two from the centre of the market town of Skipton, known as the ‘Gateway to the Dales’. It’s this superb, central location which helps to make our hotel the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area.

We have 96 beautifully furnished and well-equipped bedrooms, enabling us to groups of all sizes. We also offer a range of group facilities including our Hospitality Lounge which is big enough to seat 70 and our Bar Lounge to seat up to 65, allowing plenty of space for you to get together and meet as a group.

At the Rendezvous we can provide a wide range of meeting and function rooms, however it is our square ballroom – one of the largest in the North of England – which has helped to make us so popular with groups – dance groups in particular! Whether your group love to dance or you’d like to arrange a group event, we offer a range of flexible spaces, perfect for meeting, socialising and having some fun.

The Rendezvous Hotel: a group travel hotel with a difference

From your first contact with us to the moment your group depart, you’ll find that our reputation for providing exceptional customer service is certainly justified. We’re large enough to have the space and expertise to arrange accommodation for groups, but small enough to care about those all important details.

We believe our reputation speaks for itself and we’re incredibly proud of some of the awards we’ve won for our group travel accommodation, including Accommodation Provider of the Year 2014 and 2016 at the British Coach Tourism Awards, whilst being three-times runners-up in the Individual Hotel category of the Group Travel Awards.
