The Orchard Hotel, Nottingham
De Vere Venues, the UK’s leading provider of conference, meeting and event space, have won two highly coveted accolades at the annual ‘Simply the Guest’ awards with The Orchard Hotel, Nottingham, being named ‘Best Business Hotel’ and Wychwood Park, Crewe achieving ‘Top Rated’ status in the ‘Best Golf Hotel’ category.

The awards, which recognise the best UK hotels across a varied range of categories, are awarded to properties who receive the most positive customer reviews on the booking website.  

Orchard Hotel beat off stiff competition to win first place in the category, with guests praise via the booking website including:  

“Spotless, smart, very comfortable bed, sensibly priced and with good level of service. Really impressive, this is my new benchmark for business hotels.”  

Speaking of Orchard Hotel, ‘Simply The Guest’ host Alex Brooker commented: “The De Vere Venues Orchard Hotel has proven it is a cut above over the last 12 months having been consistently highly rated by guests who have stayed there. It was a pleasure to be able to recognise the hard work of the whole team at the hotel and I hope this official shout out goes some way to rewarding everyone involved.”  

In a second coup for De Vere Venues, Wychwood Park, which features a PGA European-tour standard golf course, was recognised as one of the top UK golf hotels by its customers, with feedback such as:  

“Lovely night’s stay in beautiful surroundings. Staff were friendly and helpful and our room was clean and had everything we needed to make us feel comfortable. We would recommend this hotel and will definitely return.”  

Brooker rained praise upon the golfing venue adding: “I would also like to extend my congratulations to the De Vere Venues Wychwood Park hotel for achieving Top Rated status. It’s great to be involved with these awards as now I’ll know where to stay next when I’m playing golf! I will be mentioning the De Vere Venues Wychwood Park hotel to my agent for the next time I’m travelling.”  

Ian Conder, Group Sales Director commented; ‘’We are delighted that two of our venues were recognised in the Awards. Guest voted awards always carry a little extra gusto for us, as they are a direct reflection of the exceptional hospitality and impeccable service that our team provide both leisure and business travelers alike.’’
