Slaley goes Fox Huntington

Andrew Fox is promising to maintain Slaley Hall’s reputation as a top quality golfing venue with its two courses – The Huntington and Priestman – among the most popular in the region.

QHotels has appointed Fox as regional general manager for the group’s northern hotels – a role which includes the position of on-site general manager at Slaley Hall in Northumberland.

In addition to his position at Slaley Hall, Fox – who has more than 20 years experience with some of the UK’s best-known hotel brands – will oversee operations at two further QHotels golf resorts Aldwark Manor, near York, and the Westerwood Hotel near Glasgow.

Slaley Hall was recently named Best Golf Hotel/Resort in the North of England for the third successive year in the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards and has previously hosted 18 European Tour and European Seniors Tour events.

Fox said: “It’s great to make the move back to QHotels and to maintain an active role in the leisure business in the North East.

“I’m keen to reinstate Slaley Hall’s reputation as a luxury resort. Set in 1,000 acres of Northumberland countryside, the hotel has something for everyone, from taking a luxury spa or activity break, to using its meeting and corporate golf facilities.”
