Six of QHotels 10 golf resorts have received VenueVerdict Gold Standard Accreditations, as the UK’s largest golf-resort operator achieved a record-breaking 12 for the third quarter of 2017.
The prestigious Gold Standard Accreditations are awarded by BDRC Continental – the UK’s largest independent research agency – and are based directly on event host feedback and how likely they are to recommend a venue for a conference or event.
The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort, near Glasgow, leads the field, receiving the quarterly accolade continuously for more than five years. Other QHotels golf resorts to be recognised were Hellidon Lakes Golf & Spa Hotel, Daventry; Mottram Hall, Cheshire; Belton Woods, Grantham; Dunston Hall, Norwich’ and the Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, in Shropshire.
These plaudits follow the acclamation of QHotels as the top ‘large group’ in VenueVerdict’s annual awards for the sixth consecutive year.
Claire Rowland, director of marketing at QHotels, said: “I would firstly like to congratulate everyone across the QHotels group for achieving a record-breaking quarter. We are thrilled to have secured our highest number of VenueVerdict accreditations, which are testament to the hard work and passion our teams show every day.
“It is also hugely satisfying to see six of our golf resorts included as golf is becoming an increasingly popular add-on for event hosts. These accreditations demonstrate the value of investing in facilities and our commitment to offering the very best services for guests and we are delighted this approach has been recognised by event hosts themselves.”
Natalie Wiseman, Client Services Manager at BDRC Continental said: “QHotels’ fantastic achievement this quarter once again demonstrates the group’s commitment to its customer offering. It’s great to see that drive filtering down into the individual hotels.”
The multi-award-winning, four-star QHotels group offers championship-standard courses in unique resort locations including Slaley Hall – voted ‘Best Golf Hotel/Resort in the North of England’ for the third successive year in the 2017 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards and host of 18 European Tour and European Seniors Tour events – Belton Woods, Oulton Hall, Mottram Hall, and Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort.
