The six hotels located across the UK include the five-star Cameron House in Loch Lomond and the Elizabethan-style Dunston Hall in Norfolk. They will be managed alongside the existing QHotels portfolio of 21 hotels, led by MD Michael Purtill and Finance Director Ian Goulding.
“This is a positive move that will help drive long-term, sustained growth for the QHotels brand,” says Purtill. “The six hotels are an excellent fit as they are renowned for their first-rate facilities, catering and service. This aligns with our guest-ethos and enables us to effectively expand our UK reach.
“We will be working with each hotel on an individual basis to ensure we build on the best of what they have to offer and complementing this with our experience and expertise. This will help to maximise the conference and events potential of each of the hotels, while strengthening our portfolio in terms of a wider golf, spa and leisure offering,” Purtill adds.
Investment has been earmarked for each of the six hotels over the coming months.
The former De Vere Hotels, joining the QHotels portfolio, include:
- Cameron House, Loch Lomond
- Dunston Hall, Norwich
- Oulton Hall, Leeds
- Mottram Hall, Macclesfield, Cheshire
- Slaley Hall, Hexham, Northumberland
