Andrew McPherson laid out bold ambitions to make sure Grantley Hall became the ‘Chewton Glen of the North’ prior to its grand opening in July 2019. He had good reason to however.
Acquired in 2015 by Valeria Sykes, Grantley Hall underwent a multi-million pound renovation to become a new luxury hotel in Yorkshire. With 47 bedrooms and suites, four restaurants – including a fine-dining eatery headed up by acclaimed chef Shaun Rankin, the new offering had all the ingredients to be on to a winner. A spa, gym and Elite performance centre were also created, pushing the boundaries of a traditional country house hotel.
After working in the hospitality industry his whole adult life and managing some of the most exclusive hotels in Europe, including Bath Spa hotel, Lucknam Park and Skibo Castle, Andrew was the obvious choice to head the redevelopment and creation of this luxury retreat.
Since its epic launch to market last year, Grantley Hall has performed well, joining prestigious consortiums such as Pride of Britain Hotels and Relais and Chateaux and building a strong reputation in the North.
