About Us

Founded in 2019, Almarose Hotels & Resorts manage 20 full service four-star hotels.

As well as the UK brand QHotels, we also manage hotels under prestigious well-known global brands, including DoubleTree by Hilton.

Our Leadership Team

Almarose is in the process of building a strong Leadership Team with complementary characteristics to support the vision and values we are setting out to achieve. Together they will lead the way with a commitment to setting and clearly communicating strategic direction and passion for delivery through great teams.

Philip Gardener

Commercial Director

Philip joined the Almarose Leadership Team in April this year. He has worked in the hotel industry all of his career and for the past 20+ years in areas of Commercial – specialising in Revenue Management. Prior to joining Almarose, Philip worked for IHG initially focused on the managed hotels and then expanding responsibility across all 600+ hotels in Europe, all markets. He also worked for 5 years for Marriott and brings expertise in driving commercial performance through brand engagement.

Of his new role, he says “taking the existing portfolio on a journey of branding and investment provides significant opportunity – in terms of the talent we can retain and attract, how organisationally we can do things differently but ultimately in the results we will be able to deliver. This is very exciting, particularly when it comes to enabling future acquisitions because of the capability we are building. Collaboration, determination and trust will provide the foundation for the organisation that will deliver this.”
