The North Yorkshire venue – which caused a stir when it opened its doors last July after a multi-million-pound investment – is looking forward to welcoming guests back.
And the team – which includes celebrated British chef, Shaun Rankin – who has a fine dining restaurant at Grantley Hall – are excited to be back in business.
“We were absolutely delighted to welcome guests back,” said General Manager Andrew McPherson.
“Since temporarily closing our doors, our team have been working hard in the background making further improvements to our beautiful hotel, adapting our operations so that we can ensure the safety of both our guests and staff and creating a selection of new and exciting packages for all of our guests to enjoy.
“We have put the necessary measures in place to build trust and confidence with our guests, so that they feel relaxed and can fully enjoy the Grantley experience.”
With the doors to the Great British Staycation now open – here’s WHY TO GO to Grantley Hall.
An exquisite setting that’s a feast for the eyes. Rooms to relax in that ooze luxury and restaurants that offer the most memorable experiences. Grantley Hall offers pure indulgence.
It opened its doors after a lavish, multi-million-pound revamp in 2019 by businesswoman Valeria Sykes – who fell in love with the 17th-century Palladian pile.
Now part of Relais & Châteaux, an elite status which sits independent hotels on a pedestal they belong for their commitment to exceptional guest services, Grantley Hall is five-star in every way.
“We stand for excellence, for experience, for food and for some North Yorkshire charm, said Andrew.
Located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, only 4 miles from Ripon and 10 miles from Harrogate, Grantley Hall is decadence at its finest.
