Rockliffe Hall won two Golds at last night’s North East England Tourism Awards.
The five red star resort in Hurworth, near Darlington, was short-listed for Business Tourism Provider of the Year and Hotel of the Year, and walked away with the top prize for both categories.
It’s the second year running that Rockliffe Hall has won Hotel of the Year at these awards, and last year the resort went on to win the title of VisitEngland’s Large Hotel of the Year too.
The winners of this year’s awards were announced at a glittering ceremony in Newcastle Civic Centre’s Banqueting Hall on Tuesday 22nd November.
Alfie Joey, BBC Radio Newcastle breakfast show presented, hosted the awards which were attended by around 350 guests.
Eamonn Elliott, Chief Executive at Rockliffe Hall, says: “We are delighted to have won gold for Hotel of the Year and Business Tourism Provider of the Year. Here at Rockliffe Hall we offer the ultimate experience for our guests, whether they’re visiting us for business or pleasure, and we host a wide range of high profile events throughout the year, all in five star luxury.”
Sarah Stewart, Chief Executive of NewcastleGateshead Initiative, which organised the event, said: “Many congratulations to all of this year’s winners. It is always a delight to see so many businesses awarded for their commitment to the North East’s tourism sector. The North East of England has a fantastic tourism offer, from the buzz and culture of our cities to the beautiful heritage of our coast and countryside. This is demonstrated by the variety of businesses that have entered and won the awards.”
Winners at the regional awards have the chance to showcase their business and the North East on a national stage at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2017.
David Hall, Head of Leisure, Strategy & Transformation at NWG said: “The calibre of all entries was first class and I was particularly impressed by the strength of innovation and excellence we have across the North East.”
The North East England Tourism Awards are organised and delivered by NewcastleGateshead Initiative in partnership with the Northern Tourism Alliance.
