Grantley Hall in Ripon is one of just two hotels in the UK to be awarded five Red Stars by The AA.

The awards recognise hotels that offer the best customer experience, specifically the overall design, service and offerings.

And in a virtual ceremony yesterday (Monday), Grantley Hall and Gilpin Hotel & Lake House in Cumbria were the only hotels to be awarded the top accreditation.

Simon Numphud, managing director at AA Media, said:

“As the hospitality industry reopens after a challenging year, it is an honour to announce our latest AA Red Star winners.

“With the public looking forward to travelling further afield once again, it is inspiring to see hotels like these offering impeccable service and exceptional stays, providing guests with a comfortable and reassuring return to the hospitality sector.”

Four Red Stars were given to Fischer’s Baslow Hall in Derbyshire, The Blakeney Hotel in Norfolk and The Queensberry Hotel in Somerset.

Further to the announcement, the AA will reveal the recipients of the 2021 AA Rosettes in a virtual ceremony at 09:30am on Wednesday 27th October.
