There are currently over 150 Master Innholders, all of whom are, or have been, prominent hoteliers, dedicated and committed to promoting best practice in the industry.
In 1978, the Worshipful Company of Innholders took the first step towards renewing its connections with innholding and, together with some of the leading hoteliers in the country, established the Master Innholders, membership of which acknowledges the attainment of the highest international standards in hotel management.
With the full support of the Worshipful Company of Innholders and the Institute of Hospitality, the Master Innholders have gradually increased in number and have grown their influence and charitable activities within the hotel industry.
