QHotels receives record VenueVerdict accreditations

Ashford International Hotel


QHotels has received a record-breaking 10 VenueVerdict Gold Standard accreditations, as the results for the third quarter of 2016 are announced.

The prestigious Gold Standard accreditation is awarded by BDRC - theUK's largest independent research agency - and is directly based on event host feedback and how likely they are to recommend a venue for a conference or event.

Accreditations are awarded to venues quarterly with the annual VenueVerdict results announced in December. This is the first time the hotel group has achieved 10 accreditations in a quarter.

QHotels' The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort in Scotland has received the accolade continuously for more than five years, followed by The Oxford Belfry, retaining it for four years.

These awards are testament both to our £50m programme of investment in upgrading and refurbishing our hotels and to the consistently high level of service we offer.

"Both the investment and the focus on service have been inspired by our customers' choices and needs and are driven by our wish to give our customers an enhanced experience with us.  We're delighted that this has clearly been recognised by event hosts. Congratulations to our teams for their continual efforts."

QHotels was named No.1 Large Group in the annual VenueVerdict results announced earlier this year.

James Bland, Director - Hotels and Hospitality at BDRC Continental, said:"To see QHotels reach their highest number of Gold Standard accreditations in a single quarter really goes to show the drive that the team has in delivering excellent events for their customers, an achievement to be very proud of."
