What a night for Bedern Hall at the recent Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards in Leeds, the annual celebration of the very best of the tourism industry throughout Yorkshire.
We scooped a Highly Commended Award in the Business Tourism category at the ceremony held at the First Direct Arena and attended by more than 1,000 finalists and special guests.
In presenting the Award, the judges revealed that they were captivated by Bedern Hall, describing it as a beautiful gem of a meeting place in York, ideal for those seeking a smaller location with a special atmosphere.
Bedern Hall’s Director Roger Lee attended the event and was thrilled with the prestigious accolade, commenting: “This is wonderful recognition and demonstrates that a small business with relatively limited resources can punch above its weight by providing exceptional service.”
“As a non-profit business, we face continuing challenges especially in a period of austerity. However, we have recognised and acted on customer feedback to ensure that we keep ahead of demand. Highly Commended Awards are only given by the White Rose Awards judges where special recognition is deserved so we’re delighted to receive such an accolade in a category filled with other brilliant finalists.”
The Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards, run by official tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire, are the biggest tourism awards in the UK and have recognised tourism stars for more than 25 years.
