Sales and marketing consortium Pride of Britain has named two new member hotels, taking its total to 49, one short of its self-imposed limit.
The four-AA-star, 96-bedroom the Headland hotel in Newquay, Cornwall, and the five-AA-red star, 17-bedroom Glenapp Castle (pictured) in Ballantrae, South Ayrshire, were voted into the sales and marketing consortia following a successful inspection and by a member hotelier.
Hotels are visited by mystery guests at least once every two years to ensure standards are maintained.
Pride of Britain chief executive Peter Hancock said: "This takes our membership up to 49, or 98% occupancy as I prefer to call it."
Earlier this year, the four-red-AA-star, 40-bedroom Devonshire Arms Country House Hotel & Spa in Bolton Abbey, North Yorkshire, left Pride of Britain, which is now 34 years old.
