About Best Western
All about Best Western GB
Best Western have been around in Great Britain for a good few years now and we’d like to think we’re looking good for our age. For over 30 years we have been pooling our talents (and more importantly, our commitment to quality) to deliver a personal level of service meaning that our customers get the best of both worlds – the warm local smile and the big quality as standard!
Hotels with personality
Every Best Western hotel is individual and crammed full of its own personality giving customers a whole host of choices from castles to coaching inns, sea views to mountain views and modern to listed buildings. The only thing that is the same is their commitment to the quality, value and standards of service that every guest receives.
Local produce is important to our hotels and some go even further by growing their own food and drink within their grounds. From lemon curd freshly made from the hotels lemon tree to white wine grown and bottled in the grounds there is so much more to our hotels than first impressions. In fact, it’s the lasting impressions that we are interested in and that is exactly what we do well with fantastic customer service from a bunch of people who really care about your stay.
The group started out as a simple informal link between properties with each hotel recommending another to travelers. It is from these humble beginnings we have grown into the largest group of independently owned and managed hotels in the world – but we believe we still have the same ethos as the day we started.
