ASH­FORD MP Damian Green vis­ited Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel as part of Bri­tish Tourism Week.

He saw the work that is un­der way as part of the £7.5 mil­lion in­vest­ment by own­ers Qho­tels.

Mr Green spent more than an hour with gen­eral man­ager Deirdre Billing, who showed him around the ho­tel.

She also talked about the ho­tel’s prepa­ra­tions for the 2012 Olympics.

Deirdre Billing said: “This is a re­ally ex­cit­ing time for Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional ho­tel and I am so pleased that Damian joined us to have a look at the level of in­vest­ment we are re­ceiv­ing.”

Bri­tish Tourism Week aims to raise na­tional aware­ness of the size, value and im­por­tance of Bri­tain’s £74 bil­lion vis­i­tor econ­omy.

It also high­lights the con­tri­bu­tion made by busi­nesses from ev­ery part of the UK’s tourism in­dus­try, large and small, pub­lic and com­mer­cial, in max­imis­ing fu­ture op­por­tu­ni­ties.
