The Oxford Belfry, The Stratford, The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort, have retained the accreditation for another quarter and for the first time Crewe Hall and Ashford International Hotel have also been honoured with the highly sought-after accreditation - scooping the most accreditations in QHotels' history.

The Gold accreditation, which only 33 venues in the UK have received this quarter, is based on rigorous research conducted by BDRC Continental, the UK's largest independent market research agency. The feedback from over 22,000 delegates and customers across just under 400 venues, looks at how likely delegates and guests are to recommend a venue for a conference or event.

The news that QHotels has been awarded with the most accreditations in its brands history, gives conference customers in any QHotel confidence that the highest levels of conference service will be delivered every time.

Michael Purtill, Managing Director at QHotels, said: "We continue to invest money into our 21 hotels and into staff training to consistently improve the experience we offer to conference and event customers. We believe in the strength of our conference and events offering and understand the importance of delivering great service at a competitive price.

"This accreditation is testament to the commitment everyone has put into making our conference and meetings facilities and services the envy of the industry. With just 33 venues receiving this gold accreditation, 12 of these being hotels, we're very proud to have five of them and it's the highest we've achieved since joining the programme in 2010"

The accreditation news follows on from the brand scooping the No.1 Brand Award 2012 in VenueVerdict's Large Groups category at the end of last year.

QHotels has long been a popular choice with conference and events bookers, offering a stress free package. The Total Meetings Package is all inclusive, with no hidden costs, and enables bookers to deliver a successful conference experience - without compromising their budget. The package offers everything needed for a successful meeting or conference including a dedicated meeting and event organiser on the day and free WiFi internet access for all delegates.


QHotels is dedicated to its delegates and customers and ensures that the feedback it receives is not only listened to, but also put into action. The luxury hotels provider places high value on the opinions of its customers, believing their input has helped to improve the experience which has seen them receive these accreditations for its top five event hotels.
