QHotels has ended the second quarter of the year on a high as 11 of its venues are awarded VenueVerdict’s Gold Standard Accreditation, equalling its highest ever number of quarterly accreditations.
The prestigious VenueVerdict Gold Standard is awarded by BDRC Continental - the UK’s largest independent market 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 January.
The latest accolades come after QHotels was named No.1 Large Group in VenueVerdict’s annual awards, the sixth consecutive year the group has held the top spot.
QHotels venues receiving the VenueVerdict Gold Standard accreditation in Q2 of 2017 are:
- Ashford International Hotel, Kent
- Belton Woods, Grantham
- Chesford Grange, Warwick
- Dunston Hall, Norwich
- Hellidon Lakes Golf & Spa Hotel, Daventry
- Mottram Hall, Cheshire
- The Midland, Manchester
- The Oxford Belfry, Oxfordshire
- The Park Royal, Cheshire
- The Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, Shropshire
- The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort, near Glasgow
QHotels’ The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort in Scotland has received the accolade each quarter for the past six years, while The Oxford Belfry has retained it continuously for five years.
Michael Purtill, Managing Director at QHotels, said: “Firstly, congratulations to everyone at QHotels on yet another outstanding quarter of VenueVerdict results. It’s incredibly important that each and every one of our venues strives to meet the ever-evolving needs of our guests, so to have so many recognised by event hosts is the biggest indicator of success.
“The accreditations are testament to our continued programme of investment, the consistently high level of service QHotels delivers but most importantly, our team’s passion to deliver the very best by listening to our guests.”
Natalie Wiseman, Client Services Manager said: “QHotels continues to demonstrate commitment to its conferences and events provision, demonstrated especially well by 11 of its hotels achieving VenueVerdict’s Gold Standard this quarter, with a number of those venues retaining the accreditation for a successive period.”
