All eight RBH-managed golf resorts have made it into Golf World’s new top 100 GB&I ‘Ultimate Stay-and-Play’ venues – with Slaley Hall, pictured, named England’s fourth best resort.
The Hexham, Northumberland venue was 24th in the list, with Aldwark Manor, York, also creeping into the top 50 at 46. Oulton Hall, Leeds, was 58th, Belton Woods, in Grantham, was ranked 62nd and Forest Pines – now rebranded as DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort – in Broughton, Lincolnshire, was a further three places back.
Norwich’s Dunston Hall was 76th, Doubletree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort was ranked 81st, while the Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, in Shropshire, was 88th. It’s an outstanding success for the group, which has more resorts in the top 100 than any other hotel group.
And Alan Foley, RBH’s director of golf and spa sales, was quick to praise staff at the resorts for their consistently high levels of performance.
He said: “What is a fabulous success for RBH is down to the hard work and dedication of every member of our resort teams, from the general managers down to the part-time workers. Their attention to detail and helpful ‘can-do’ attitude has been rewarded with all eight of our resorts in the top 100. It’s a fabulous feat and we thank them all for their commitment to the group ethos.”
As the largest golf resort operator in the UK, RBH – the UK’s leading independent hotel management company – manages eight championship and tournament golf courses across the UK, in a diverse collection of more than 70 branded and private-label hotel properties.
