QHotels managing director Michael Purtill (pictured right) had this to say: ”This is an exciting time for us; Marston is a highly reputable hotel chain with properties situated in key strategic locations across the UK. The 12 hotels are already well established in their own right and we recognise they have many qualities that they can bring to Qhotels, one area in particular being avery strong health & leisure brand, ”Reflections”, which is something we are keen to develop and share across the group”.
