Here at the Rendezvous we’re proud of our commitment for providing excellent hotel accommodation that’s been specially geared towards corporate travellers and by staying with us you’ll be assured of a warm Yorkshire welcome!
Thanks to our location on the outskirts of Skipton, we’re within easy reach of Bradford, Leeds, Keighley and Harrogate. Leeds/Bradford Airport is just a short taxi ride away and public transport in and around Skipton is excellent.
We know from experience that it’s the little things that can make all the difference for corporate travellers and this is why we offer all of our business guests the chance to have their breakfast extra-early from 6.00am, with room service breakfast available from 5:00am. We also have a number of large rooms available which feature a desk seating area, specially designed for corporate travellers who need to carry on working. In addition, our hospitality lounge includes a computer available for use by our guests – the ideal solution for business travellers who’ve forgotten to bring their laptop! We also offer an in-house printing service for corporate travellers, available 24hours a day from our reception area.
Our commitment to providing hotel accommodation designed to suit the needs of corporate travellers also includes our membership in the Women Aware scheme which is run by Expotel. Designed to help hotels around the world provide a safe and comfortable environment for lone female travellers, the Women Aware scheme includes a number of requirements including well-lit public areas, free WiFi, phone chargers available for guests to borrow and spy-holes in bedroom doors.

Searching for the perfect conference venue in Yorkshire? Look no further than us!
Conference facilities in Yorkshire
We know that organising and planning a conference can be stressful and with a million and one things to think about – from finding the ideal venue through to catering – here at the Rendezvous it’s our aim to take the headache out of conference planning.
Over the years we’ve gained a reputation as a leading conference venue in Yorkshire and alongside our fantastic conference facilities, there many reasons why a wide range of organisations choose to hold their conference at the Rendezvous Hotel.
Location, location, location
First and foremost is our fantastic location right on the doorstep of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. We’re located just on the outskirts of the thriving market town of Skipton and although we’re surrounded by some of the most gorgeous countryside the UK has to offer, we’re also in reach of the major cities of Leeds and Bradford, alongside towns such as Keighley and Ilkley. The transport links in this part of the world are excellent – regular direct trains run between Leeds, Bradford and Skipton – and we’re just a short taxi ride from Leeds/Bradford International airport.
Tailor made conference facilities
We’re incredibly proud of our superb conference facilities but we also know that all conferences are different. We offer a wide range of facilities, with conference rooms small enough for meetings with a couple of colleagues, through to large meeting spaces big enough for up to 500 delegates. We can also provide any equipment you need to ensure your conference runs smoothly; from flipcharts and LCD projectors, through to staging, conference telephone facilities and free broadband.
Dining options to suit all requirements
We know that flexibility is crucial when it comes to conference catering and with this in mind we offer a range of options. Whether you’d prefer a ‘working lunch’ served buffet style in your meeting room, or think that that a hot and cold buffet served in our restaurant would be the best option, we’d be delighted to work with you to meet your requirements.
Why not mix business with pleasure?
Why not offer your delegates the chance to mix business with pleasure by offering them the option to choose from one of our conference activities? From off road driving experiences, through to golf, wine tasting or archery, our events team are happy to arrange extra activities to encourage your delegates to make the most of their conference experience.

Entertainment will be courtesy of one of our Tribute acts and on 30th September we’re really looking forward to welcoming an 80’s Tribute Show to the Rendezvous. This promises to be a brilliant evening and would be the perfect way to re-live those heady days of the 1980s! Fans of Abba will absolutely love our cabaret night on 4th November – our fantastic Abba Tribute band is always incredibly popular with our guests so why not join us for an evening of Swedish pop classics?
