Grantley Hall: AA Hotel of the Year in Yorkshire appoints new general manager

A luxury hotel in Yorkshire which was named the best in the country by The AA earlier this year has appointed a new general manager.

Nuno César de Sá has joined Grantley Hall, near Ripon, after previous general manager Andrew McPherson announced he would be stepping down after six years in May. Mr McPhearson has helped play a role in bringing Grantley Hall back to life as a luxury hotel, spa and dining destination.

As well as containing the Michelin-starred Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall, there are also three bars, a luxury spa and state-of-the-art gym at the hotel.

He said: ““I am honoured to become part of the Grantley Hall family. I have been fascinated by what has been achieved at Grantley Hall over the last six years. Now that I have been appointed as General Manager, it is incredible that I will become an integral part of its future.

Richard Sykes, managing director at Grantley Hall, said: “We are thrilled to have Nuno on board as our new General Manager. As a family-owned business, we understand that our people are the most important element of the hotel as they implement the magic of Grantley Hall to our guests and as Nuno shares many of the Grantley values, we know that he will be a perfect fit.

“We will always be grateful to Andrew McPherson, our previous General Manager, for helping us to bring our vision of Grantley Hall to life from the build stage, but now it is time for the next step in our exciting journey in becoming an iconic British hotel.”

Grantley Hall open its doors in 2019 after a multi-million-pound four-year restoration project. Today, Grantley Hall boasts 47 bedrooms, five restaurants, three bars and an award-winning spa.
