New hote­lier takes reigns at golf re­sort

Macclesfield Express - - BUSI­NESS -

HOTE­LIER Deirdre Billing has been ap­pointed gen­eral man­ager of Mot­tram Hall.

Deirdre pre­vi­ously worked in se­nior roles at QHo­tels for 10 years, most re­cently as re­gional gen­eral man­ager, over­see­ing Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional and Bridge­wood Manor, in Kent.

She also helped Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional se­cure in­dus­try recog­ni­tion, in­clud­ing be­ing named the num­ber-one ho­tel in the an­nual BDRC VenueVer­dict re­sults and re­ceiv­ing a gold ac­cred­i­ta­tion in the Green Tourism Busi­ness Scheme.

Be­fore join­ing QHo­tels she held gen­eral man­ager po­si­tions at two large Lon­don ho­tels.

At Mot­tram Hall, she will over­see the ho­tel’s cham­pi­onship golf course, 10 con­fer­ence and meet­ing rooms, cor­po­rate train­ing and team­build­ing fa­cil­i­ties and the UK’s first Al­fres­coTher­moS­pace Spa.

She said: “I’m de­lighted to be re­turn­ing to QHo­tels and tak­ing this ex­cit­ing role at Mot­tram Hall, to lead the ho­tel into 2017.

“Mot­tram Hall has a strong rep­u­ta­tion in the re­gion and is known as Cheshire’s finest ho­tel and golf re­sort.

“My fo­cus will be on main­tain­ing the ho­tel’s high stan­dard and con­tin­u­ing to strengthen its of­fer­ing for guests.”

Michael Pur­till, man­ag­ing direc­tor of QHo­tels, added: “Deirdre’s re­turn to QHo­tels is fan­tas­tic news for the busi­ness. She has a track record of de­liv­er­ing ex­cel­lent re­sults and com­mit­ment to of­fer­ing ex­cep­tional lev­els of cus­tomer ser­vice. She brings huge ex­pe­ri­ence but also her drive and en­thu­si­asm will be an in­spi­ra­tion to the Mot­tram Hall team and our guests alike. She makes a great ad­di­tion to our se­nior man­age­ment team.”

Part of the QHo­tels group, Mot­tram Hall sits in 270 acres of park­land, one mile from Prest­bury, and was the host venue for the 2013 Euro­pean Se­niors PGA Cham­pi­onship.
