The Belfry Hotel & Resort has once again been announced as England’s Leading Conference Hotel at the 28th annual World Travel Awards.
The awards acknowledged The Belfry’s high-quality service, exceptionally high standard of facilities and first-class events and meetings spaces.
Katie Niland, Sales Director at The Belfry said: “I am absolutely delighted that the resort has once again been recognised as a preferred venue of choice for conferences in England, and we would like to say a huge thank you everyone who voted for us.
“When the pandemic hit, the team did what they do best and put our customers at the heart of everything we do. We went above and beyond to ensure we reacted quickly and implemented a number of new products and services directly tailored to our clients’ changed needs, it is wonderful to be recognised for this.
“This award means so much to the team, it has been inspiring to see them pull together, adapt and, ultimately, thrive. When face-to-face conferences and events resumed, we achieved a 98% meeting room occupancy on week of opening, with a strong sales pipeline for 2022. This is a clear sign of the renewed confidence in the market and our commitment to maintaining relationships with our clients throughout.”
Reflecting on the announcement, Denis Sheehan, Publisher, H&C News said: “I congratulate Katie and all the team at The Belfry on retaining this award.
“The client relationship Katie refers to above I can reference from the client side. For a number of years we have worked with The Belfry to host The Clink Charity Golf Day, in association with Meiko UK. Based on the repeated delivery of a truly exceptional experience, led by Neil Walker, Account Director, Golf, The Belfry Hotel & Resort, we continue to return each year.
“One attendee of this year’s ‘Clink’ golf event was so impressed with the day he asked us to arrange a replica for him, Robert Richardson, Chief Executive, Institute of Hospitality. So, we have now launched The Institute of Hospitality Golf Day, in association with Caterer.com.
“Needless to say it will take place at The Belfry.”
