Rudding Park Wins National Accessibility Award at the Annual AA Hospitality Awards

We are delighted to have won the Accessibility Award at the annual AA Hospitality Awards.

The annual awards hosted by Gabby Logan which recognise the excellence of hotels, restaurants and their teams across the UK, took place at Grosvenor House, London.

The Accessibility Award, which is a new category this year, recognises a hotel that has gone above and beyond in making their property as accessible as possible whilst at the same time proactively promoting their accessible credentials. The award not only recognises high quality accessible provision through the physical elements of the property but also, of equal importance, its approach to guests with accessible needs through tailored services, staff training and guest engagement.

Peter Banks, Managing Director at Rudding Park said “We are delighted to have won the Accessibility Award – even more so as it is a national award. As a business we need to be representative of our society – we understand guests have different needs and are committed to ensuring our facilities are accessible for all.

It is important to maintain the dignity of every guest who visits Rudding Park, the only reason for them to feel special is because of their visit to our surroundings not to be singled out due to having different requirements. We hope Rudding Park are seen as ‘flag bearers’ for accessibility and that hospitality venues across the country will be inspired to take accessibility seriously and do the right thing.”
