About the award

Introduced in 1992, this award is the AA’s ultimate accolade for hotels in the UK. It is awarded to hotels that are recognised as being outstanding examples in their particular market.

Grantley Hall, Ripon, North Yorkshire

Grantley Hall offers a wonderful fusion of contemporary style and historical character. The original hall dates back to the 17th century and now boasts award-winning restaurants along with a state-of-the-art luxury gym, wellness centre and spa. Arriving through the manicured grounds and gardens there is a real sense of luxury and exclusivity.

There are 47 exceptional, individually styled bedrooms and suites split across the main hall and a glass-roofed modern courtyard. There's an array of public areas and lounges so there is always somewhere you can lose yourself in. Guests here can be assured of the highest standards of attentive, professional service and warm Yorkshire hospitality.

The significant investment in creating Grantley Hall has been matched in its team and people. Led by experienced hotelier Andrew McPherson the hotel has achieved a stunning level of consistency and standards in just three years to achieve 5 Red Stars and multiple Rosettes for its various restaurants including 3 Rosettes for Shaun Rankin.
