Harrogate Hospitality & Tourism Awards

11:18am 14th February 2017

Promoted by Destination Harrogate

Described by Trip Advisor as "The English Spa", a venue where mineral hot springs soothe the body and countryside stimulates the soul, Harrogate is undoubtedly a fantastic place to visit. And celebrating those who make the most of welcoming visitors to the town is an incredibly important job. A job which has been taken on by Destination Harrogate and the Harrogate Hospitality and Tourism Awards.

Destination Harrogate which is made up of nine Harrogate hotels (Cedar Court, The Old Swan, The Crown Hotel, Holiday Inn, Hotel Du Vin, The Majestic Hotel, Rudding Park, Studley Hotel and Yorkshire Hotel) knows how vital it is for successful businesses to welcome holiday makers, day trippers and conferences to the town. Between them, every year they host almost 300,000 guests, employ over 650 staff, and celebrate the town with eleven different award categories:

  • Waiter/Waitress of the Year
  • Bar Person of the Year
  • Chef of the Year
  • Team of the Year
  • Harrogate Ambassador
  • Newcomer of the Year
  • Unsung Hero
  • Best Achievement of the Year
  • Outstanding Customer Service
  • Restaurant of the Year
  • Bar of the Year

Nominations are open until 31st March and you can nominate someone here. David Ritson and Simon Cotton from destination Harrogate talked to Beth Parsons form Stray FM's Food and Drink show about the awards here:
