Yorkshire Society Awards 2017 – local winner Rendezvous Hotel

The Annual Yorkshire Society Awards took place on Friday 12th May 2017 – presentations included a range of categories covering everything from Business and Charity, through to Arts and Culture, Community and Sporting Excellence.  It was a glittering occasion and offered a wonderful opportunity to meet a wide range of other Yorkshire businesses in the impressive surroundings of the Leeds City Hilton.

“I am delighted to announce that Rendezvous Hotel has been named the Yorkshire Society’s Business of the Year Award 2017!” states Chairman Keith Madeley (MBE).  “This is a huge pat on the back for the entire Rendezvous team. Their mission is to bring as many visitors to Yorkshire as possible so they may experience the culture, tranquillity and beauty that our county has to offer.  Well done to the whole team!”

He added that “We’re absolutely delighted for them, especially as they were up against some fantastic Yorkshire businesses.  On top of running an award winning hotel (twice winners of Best Hotel for Groups in the Coach Tourism Awards 2014/2016, plus runners up for Best Individual Hotel in the Group Travel Awards 2012/2014/2016) Rendezvous has an established commitment to local business networks, with management finding the time to hold the following positions – past President of the Chamber of Trade Executive, Director on Skipton’s Business Improvement District Board and Vice Chairman of the Craven area Federation of Small Businesses to name but a few.

The hotel’s long standing employees thrive on providing all guests with their own special brand of Yorkshire hospitality which resulted in Skipton being crowned the National Campaign for Courtesy ‘Top Town’ of the year 2016 – the first Yorkshire town to ever receive this accolade.

All of this coupled with their association to charity ‘Petal’ which has raised a phenomenal £1.3 million to aid research into Childhood cancer placed them as stand out winners within this category.”
