Swinton Park takes the Euro plunge
Date: 28th January 2002

Swinton Park, one of Yorkshire’s most prestigious hotels, has opened its doors to the Euro. Whilst the currency has yet to make an appearance in the county, the hotel has taken the initiative to accept Euros brought home from holidays or business trips. The Euros can be spent at Swinton Park at the hotel and restaurant (which also welcomes non residents) – why wait until your next trip abroad if your money can work at home?

The hotel opened in March 2001 and has already built itself a reputation for its high levels of service and all the traditional comforts of a country house hotel. Felicity and Mark Cunliffe-Lister gave up their careers (as City solicitor and Geophysicist respectively) to refurbish and open the hotel, and they relish the challenges of the hospitality business. Whilst they appointed Sean Boyce as their manager at the outset, they are able to concentrate on the fine tuning of the operation to give the hotel their very own personal touch. Whilst Mark can be booked to take guests on a tour of the family estate and cottage industries, Felicity has devised a year long programme of Special Interest Breaks, concentrating on Yorkshire’s gardens, follies, castles, abbeys and historic houses. The Euro project is just another example of their fresh approach and entrepreneurial spirit.
