With 49 member hotels currently in Pride of Britain, and a limit of 50 in the rules of the consortium, the process of admitting new members comes under intense scrutiny.
You may wonder why the limit exists at all. In fact it was one of the founding principles when the collection was formed in 1982 and remains our guarantee of quality and exclusivity.
Only hotels that offer very high levels of hospitality can be considered for membership – and even then it is far from easy to gain admission.
Please let us know who you think deserves to be number 50.
