A FILEY guesthouse is flying the flag for the town in this year’s White Rose Awards.

The All Seasons Hotel, in Rutland Street, has been shortlisted in the B&B/Guest Accommodation category at the awards, which will be held at Doncaster Racecourse in October.

The list of finalists boasts 94 of Yorkshire’s best attractions, hotels, venues and individuals from the tourism industry. The list covers 16 categories and the winners will be announced at a glittering black-tie awards ceremony.

The hotel is the only candidate from the Filey and Hunmanby area to make the shortlist.

Last year’s ceremony attracted a sell-out audience of 1,000 guests, making it the biggest tourism awards in the UK.

Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “Yorkshire’s tourism economy is booming and the finalist list for the White Rose Awards indicates why. The level of high quality entries was outstanding and a firm indication that our tourism industry know the importance of offering our visitors that extra special experience.”

This year’s award categories include Best Tourism Experience, Large Hotel, Caravan Holiday Park & Holiday Village, and Small Visitor Attraction. A new category, Restaurant of the Year, is also set to place the spotlight on the county’s eateries.
