This week we were delighted to be awarded the title of “Best Large Hotel in Yorkshire” at the prestigious White Rose Awards.
At a Gala Dinner held in Harrogate, where the cream of Yorkshire’s tourism talent were on show, Michael Bannister was presented with the award. Speaking shortly after, Mr Bannister said: “We’re all absolutely delighted here at The Coniston to win the Best Large Hotel in Yorkshire award. It’s testimony to the efforts we have made, not just last year, but over the many years that the hotel and our estate activities have been nurtured and developed”.
Praising his staff, he said “We believe we have one of the best teams of staff in any hotel in the country, and this award is as much for them, and of course for our customers and guests, as it is for us. We hope that this award, coming on top of the superb publicity that the Yorkshire Dales enjoyed with the Tour de France being here this summer, will provide a rock-solid foundation for our planned Spa By The Lake development next year, and our future growth in the business and the provision of quality jobs in the hospitality industry in this area.”
