QHotels is in the running to retain its Best Medium Chain Leisure Clubs title for the second year running, for chains of 10 to 30 branches, in the Members’ Choice Health Club Awards 2012.
In addition, 12 of its leisure clubs have made the shortlist for their region in the awards scheme, the only one in the industry where winners are selected by members.
Now in its second year, the awards scheme asks members to rate the quality of facilities, customer service and value for money provided by clubs in an online questionnaire. Over 37,000 members voted in this year’s competition, which saw 12 out of 19 QHotels leisure clubs added to the shortlist.
Ashford International Hotel, The Cambridge Belfry, Chesford Grange, Crewe Hall, Forest Pines Hotel & Golf Resort, The Hampshire Court Hotel, The Park Royal, Tankersley Manor, Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, The Midland, The Nottingham Belfry and The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort are the 12 shortlisted hotels.
Group Leisure and Spa Manager at QHotels, David Heap said: “Being named Best Medium Chain Leisure Club 2011 was a fantastic achievement for us. We’re continuously investing in our facilities and staff training in order to make our clubs the very best they can be, and we believe we have a real chance of winning this prestigious accolade once again, even against such stiff competition. What makes being shortisted extra special to us is that the awards are voted for by our members and its their opinion that’s most important of all.”
Managing Director at Health Club Awards, Simon Brown explains: “Only 180 clubs across the UK reached the shortlist stage of the competition and every single one of them should be extremely proud of that fact. There’s no better endorsement for a club than from the customers that are using the facilities on a regular basis, and that says a huge amount about the way these clubs are run.”
The award winners will be announced at a ceremony on Tuesday 18 September 2012 at the Hilton Metropole, Birmingham, as part of Leisure Industry Week 2012.
