Runswick Bay hotel among Yorkshire’s best

A local hotel was celebrating last night after being named among the award winners at the prestigious White Rose Tourism Awards.

The Cliffemount Hotel at Runswick Bay was highly commended in the small hotel of the year category, narrowly missing out to Swinton park in South Yorkshire.

Raithwaite Hall, between Sandsend and Whitby had been shortlisted in the large hotel of the year running but lost out to winners Wentbridge House and Coniston Hotel and Country estate who were the runners up.

The winners were announced at a ceremony in Leeds last night (Monday).
