Looking after VIP’s and building relationships with our regular guests will be a large part of the role along with being a custodian of Lime Wood going the extra mile for our guests.

Previous experience within people facing roles is a positive, but of more importance is demonstrating a passion and drive for delivering a memorable guest experience. Exposure to a high-volume hotel, F&B operations, and experience of managing a team are desirable. Training of all aspects and areas of the Hotel & Spa during an induction period will be provided to fully understand the day to day running of the operation.
