The Leeds Hotels and Venues Awards is now in its sixth year and draws together the members of the region’s hospitality sector; ranging from budget through to five-star hotels and venues.

Michael Longstaff, General Manager at Weetwood Hall said: “We as a team are very proud of what we have achieved in recent years and this is a further endorsement of the hard work and dedication of the team.

“Everyone has a part to play in the achievement of this accolade and it is a proud moment that we can enjoy and use as a platform for continued success.”

Collectively, the Leeds Hotels and Venues Association (LHVA), which hosts the awards, represents those businesses which provide 5,000 of the City’s bedrooms, employs 3,500 staff and turns over £170 million each year.
