Whether travelling for business or pleasure, guests are promised
the 'best of British' with British Trust Hotels.
The history of the company dates back to 1902 when it was launched
as the Cheshire Public House Trust Company by Albert Henry George,
fourth Earl Grey. One of his interests was the service and hospitality
offered by the average British inn and he set out to improve these
standards. Earl Grey started his campaign by bringing together representatives
from every county and put forward the idea that each should found
a Public House Trust.
British Trust Hotels was one of the first to be set up, with shares
purchased by nine local businessmen who decided that half the shares
should be owned by a charitable trust to ensure that the original
aims of the company were maintained and that a percentage of company
profits would be distributed to charity. This is still the case
Over 100 years later British Trust Hotels is now one of the largest
and oldest privately owned hotel groups in the UK, offering excellent
accommodation at reasonable prices, just as Earl Grey envisioned.
