I was delighted when Debbie our Director of Marketing Services invited me to be a guest blogger on the QHotels blog. Having never written a blog before I sat in front of a blank screen for some considerable time. I decided to blog about my excitement for the up coming Olympic Games in 2012 and the wider impact the games will have not only for London but the country as a whole.
Exciting times ahead! I am happy to report that we are getting a lot of enquiries from both corporate and overseas tour operators. We are only 26 minutes from Stratford International by high speed train so you could say we are only a hop, skip and a jump away! London is experiencing high demand and perhaps appearing expensive with their limited availability. What ever the reason I remain optimistic that Ashford will benefit hugely.
The Legacy. As a nation if we get the essentials right; the welcome, the service, the experience right throughout all areas of the community and prove that we are excellent hosts, the legacy for 2013 and beyond will lead to increased tourism and benefit the economy overall.
