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.

Standard Group award for the second year running and won No.1 Large
Group award for the fourth consecutive year. It has also kept the
Number One Hotel crown, passing this from its Westerwood Hotel and
Golf Resort to Ashford International Hotel.
QHotels achieved these accolades following feedback from event

"Our hotels read all the feedback they receive and use this
information to keep finding new ways to delight our guests.
Customer feedback is everything to our business, it not only to
help us to develop but also lets us know when we're doing a good
job. We'd like to thank our customers for their support."
The VenueVerdict Awards are based on rigorous research conducted by
BDRC Continental, the UK's largest independent market research
agency and look at how likely guests are to recommend venues.
James Bland, director of the Hotels and Hospitality Team at BDRC
Continental, said: "QHotels performed consistently highly in the
quarterly VenueVerdict accreditation programme and 2014 has been
their best year yet. The awards they have received are a true
testament to the group's commitment to developing their offering
and the hard work of their conference and events staff."
QHotels recently expanded its portfolio of 21 unique and luxury
hotels to 27 following the acquisition of six former DeVere
resorts. The six hotels, located across the UK include the luxury
5-star Cameron House on Loch Lomond and the Elizabethan-style
Dunston Hall in picturesque Norfolk.
