Local people that live in residential areas around nine of our QHotels can now drop off waste packaging that can't be recycled by the council to a public collection box at each hotel. Not only will this to reduce landfill it will raise money for local charities at the same time.



QHotels were recognised last night at the Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Awards, one of the events industry's most important calendar dates.



It has been a record start to the year for QHotels, as the hotel group scooped three of the top hotel accolades from VenueVerdict as well as nine of the group's hotels receiving Gold Standard Accreditations - the most the group has ever received.
