Thistle hotels are part of GLH Hotels Management (UK) Limited operating a number of hotels throughout the UK. Thistle has 31 hotels across the country, many in superb city centre locations, including ten in central London. With a selection of restaurants and a choice of excellent health and leisure facilities, there is something for everyone.
Thistle is transforming what they do, and how they do it.
The guest experience is everything. A relaxing, comfortable ambience in which guests can work or rest at their own pace. Wireless internet access in every area of the hotels. Personal service delivered in a warm, efficient and straightforward manner. The perfect locations for both business and leisure.
Thistle is constantly reviewing its standards to offer guests exactly what they need, at a fair price, with the peace of mind that they don’t have to compromise on quality or service.
To bring it all to life, Thistle is investing over £100 million in the next two years. With 32 hotels nationwide, including ten in central London, and 2 hotels in the exotic peninsula of Malaysia, the name may be the same, but they’re showing the world a very different face.

We develop the outdoor arts sector through networking, lobbying, information-sharing, training, research, and advocacy support and advice for our members.
Our members include: artists, curators, presenters, producers, promoters, support agencies and venues working in outdoor arts in the UK and Ireland. We represent up to 100 members across the UK and Ireland. ISAN is the independent voice for outdoor arts in the UK.
ISAN is a strategic organisation that plays a key role in ensuring that excellent art happens by supporting the development of outdoor arts practice and bringing the sector together.
ISAN is committed to supporting outdoor arts in all their forms and advocating their benefits and broad range of practices.
We currently fulfil our core aim through a number of programmes and and activities under three broad areas:
1. Membership Services
We organise two General Meetings a year where members come together to discuss and debate key issues, network, collaborate on shared programming and established priorities for ISAN.
The ISAN website provides information about each member and highlights member's events. We produce monthly e-bulletin sharing information and opportunities.
Members are offered training courses and professional development opportunities.
We set an industry standard as all members sign up to a Code of Practice for the Engagement of Artists when joining ISAN.
2. Sector services made available and of benefit to the sector as a whole including:
Commissioning and publishing research and guidance e.g. Health and Safety Guidance, Environmental Sustainability Toolkit, Access Toolkit etc.
Organising conferences and symposia events on specific themes open to members and non-members.
Acting as a forum for critical discussion inside and outside the sector.
3. Sectoral development services designed to develop and move the sector forward including:
Act as the leading lobbying body for the sector for critical issues such as investment and licensing.
Acting as an independent voice for Outdoor Arts by delivering presentations throughout the UK and making the sector's views heard by Government, Arts Councils and local authorities.
Promoting the further development of good practice in Outdoor Arts, for example, through the Code of Practice, the Health and Safety Guidance and the Toolkits.
ISAN members strongly believe in developing outdoor arts as an art form – presenting high-quality work that creates a dynamic relationship with a very large and steadily growing audience.
Our members are individuals and organisations who actively support and participate in the development of outdoor arts in their professional work. Our members include festivals, venues, local authorities, independent producers, artists and support organisations such as agents, trade associations and funding bodies.
