Tourism stars bid for a lovely Reyta
WITH its stunning mix of rolling countryside and breathtaking coastline, there is no surprise East Yorkshire is attracting more tourists to the region.
The tourism industry in Hull and the East Riding is worth an estimated £615m annually.
However, as well as its unique landscape, East Yorkshire's tourism industry depends heavily on the guest houses, hotels, restaurants and host of other businesses which make the area a welcoming place to stay.
Now, the businesses that help to put our area on the map are being urged to enter the Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards (Reytas).

Now in their fourth year, the awards will take place at the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel in Willerby on March 14.
Glyn Jones, manager at Grange Park, said the prestigious event would provide the perfect showcase for the hotel, which has recently been transformed thanks to a significant investment by its new owners.
He said: "We are thrilled to be hosting the Reytas and are committed to delivering a real night to remember.
"The Reytas will show off the hotel and what fantastic facilities we have. Our event room is second to none in this area in terms of its setting, size and facilities."
Last September, the hotel was one of 24 taken over by the Jupiter Hotels Group after it bought Jarvis out of administration.
Hundreds of Hull and East Yorkshire tourism's finest will gather at the venue to celebrate what is now regarded as the "Oscars" of the region's tourism industry.
Mr Jones said: "People have always known this hotel as the Grange Park so that's what we wanted to be.
"Before we came in, the hotel was struggling and perhaps a lot of its traditional business had drifted away. When people visit now we think they will be pleasantly surprised."
Andy Gray, tourism manager of Visit Hull and East Yorkshire, said: "These awards recognise the significant achievements of those that make our industry so outstanding and give deserved recognition to the very best and brightest tourism businesses and individuals in our area.
"Don't miss your chance to win one of these prestigious awards."
Nominations for the awards are open now at www. vis ithullandeastyorkshire.com/reyta or by writing to Wykeland House, 47 Queen Street, Hull HU1 1UU.
The deadline for nominations is January 14.
