Swinton Park has received a prestigious César award – the Oscars of the hotel industry – from the Good Hotel Guide, the leading independent guide to hotels of character and quality in Great Britain and Ireland. Swinton Park, Masham, is named Family Hotel of the Year in the 2011 edition of the Guide which will be published on 18 October.
Desmond Balmer, joint editor of the Good Hotel Guide, said Swinton Park “…stands out because of the efforts their owners make to meet the needs of their guests. At their family home, a listed Gothic castle, Mark and Felicity Cunliffe-Lister create a relaxed and unfussy atmosphere in which children are made to feel welcome. It is a rare treat to find such family-friendly surroundings.”
Felicity Cunliffe-Lister said: “This award means a great deal to us as we have always sought to make guests feel more at home than in a hotel. We have young children ourselves which has helped us understand the needs of a family who want to enjoy quality time together.”
The Good Hotel Guide nominates 10 hotels every year for the award, named after César Ritz, the most celebrated of hoteliers. These are for a mixed selection of places each of which is considered to be outstanding in its own class.
Facilities for families at Swinton Park include :
