Dear Guests & Visitors
Like most other industries at the moment, we find ourselves unable to recruit enough staff to adequately fill all positions. As a result, we have made a number of changes in how we operate the hotel including not fully servicing stayover rooms and reducing our food & beverage offerings. We do however remain committed to delivering a warm welcome to you and ensuring that you have an enjoyable experience with us either in our accommodation rooms, restaurant or conference facilities.
I am proud to say that all our staff are here because they want to do a good job and are focused on delivering quality service, most of them are working longer hours than normal and at times six days a week. During this difficult time I would ask you for a little leniency with our team should things not go as expected, if we don’t get it quite right the first time I would encourage you to speak to the relevant supervisor, Duty Manager or myself and we will endeavour to quickly correct any issues.
If you know of anyone looking for a job in hospitality please send them our way – all our positions are paid above The Living Wage and we provide a fun and supportive work environment.
Thank you for your understanding and I do hope you enjoy your time with us.
