We work hard to provide every one of our guests an unparalleled level of service, and we are proud that our efforts have been recognised. Please read on to find out more about our awards and how we have achieved them.
The Taste Awards, organised and run by The Yorkshire Post and Deliciously Yorkshire, celebrate Yorkshire food and drink. Cambridge House are proud winners of the 'Best Yorkshire Breakfast' which was presented to us at a black tie dinner in Harrogate on 2 November 2016. The judges said of us, 'Dedicated to supporting sustainable and locally based producers, it's fair to say guests not only eat healthy and Fair Trade produce but contribute to the local community by doing so, with the ingredients sourced from farms and butchers within the local area. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast and were made to feel so welcome throughout.'
Here at Cambridge House we pride ourselves on the quality of every aspect of your stay and, after inspection, have achieved our accredited Visit England 5* award in 2014, 2015 and again this year in 2016. The level awarded is based on the following criteria: Service, hospitality, cleanliness and quality and comfort.
Cambridge House, after inspection by Visit England, has achieved the Breakfast Award in 2013, 2014, 2015 and again in 2016. The award recognises the choice and range of the breakfast offered; presentation, food quality, and culinary skills; service and hospitality at breakfast; ‘our eggs are not just eggs but local free range eggs; our bacon is not just bacon but local dry cured bacon; our cheese is not just cheese but Swaledale Cheese!’
