QHOTELS CEMENTS REPUTATION AS No1 FOR MIXING BUSINESS AND GOLF
QHotels, the UK’s largest golf resort operator, has cemented its place as the No1 destination for mixing business with golfing pleasure after it received the coveted gold award for ‘Best Venue Group Meeting Product’ in the 2017 M&IT awards.
The accolade follows on from the prestige of being voted ‘No1 Large Group’ in the recent annual VenueVerdict Awards – for the sixth consecutive year! – and reinforces QHotels’ reputation as the top brand for meetings and events, including those that feature corporate golf.
The group, which owns 26 four-star hotels across the UK – including 10 golf resorts – was commended for its continued investment into meeting and event facilities across the group and its commitment to consistently delivering outstanding service.
The awards, organised by Meetings & Incentive Travel magazine, celebrate the best venues, suppliers and agencies in the industry, with winners voted for by event industry professionals.
Chris Gaines, sales director of QHotels, said: “The prestigious M&IT awards recognise the very best in the industry and are especially important to us because they’re voted for by event professionals themselves, allowing us to understand how we’re performing in the eyes of our event guests.
“We’re constantly listening and looking at how we can improve our offering to meet the changing needs of event professionals, allowing our teams to deliver our Inspired by You promise. It’s our team’s dedication to customers that has moved QHotels from silver to gold in the ‘best meeting product’ category, and for that I’d like to thank them.
“Over the past year we’ve made significant investments, including improving facilities such as high-speed, accessible Wi-Fi across the group, and have also launched a number new products. As well as listening to our customers, our QHotels Event Professionals Panel, which brings young event professionals together to discuss the industry’s big issues, has enhanced our understanding of what matters to industry bookers.”
To underline QHotels’ long-term commitment to corporate golf, the leading hotel group introduced Golf Rewards, a new loyalty scheme, earlier this year.
With every golf event booked, for 12 or more golfers, group organisers will be rewarded with High St shopping vouchers by way of a ‘thank-you’. And the big-brand names from which to choose include John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, Boots, Debenhams, and Love2Shop, among many others.
The multi-award-winning, four-star QHotels group offers championship-standard courses in 10 unique resort locations including Slaley Hall, Belton Woods, Oulton Hall, Mottram Hall, pictured, and Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort.
