New manager at Bay Waverley Castle Hotel, Melrose
How long have you worked at Bay Hotels?
I have been working for Bay Hotels for the past 10 months, July 2012 till present.
What other hotels have you worked at?
I started at Bay Eden Arms Hotel in County Durham as a Trainee Manager during that time I was asked to relief manage the Bay Norbreck Hotel twice and I am now currently at the Bay Waverley Castle Hotel in Melrose as a General Manager.
How did you start working for us?
I can’t remember the exact month, but it was the back end of 2009, September I think. Bay Hotels had taken over at Eden Arms hotel in County Durham, at the time it was currently under career management where I was the Food & Beverage Manager overseeing a busy function trade. Bay Hotels never have a title for this and offered me a Trainee Manager position, which I took and never looked back.
What do you like most about the hotel you now run?
It’s my first hotel and breath-taking views of the surrounding areas.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
Talking to customers about their lives. Also the Health and Safety side of things which to most sounds boring but I just for some reason really like it.
Tell us something about the hotel or surrounding area that we may not know?
Bay Waverley Castle Hotel was the first building in Britain to be made from concrete. There are some markings on the foundation wall saying “3 German Bombers spotted 5th August 1939” this is one of several dated quotes on the supporting walls of the building.
What do you enjoy doing when not working?
- Walking my 2 border collies in and around Melrose
- Both playing and watching football
- Trying Real Ales from across all parts of the Country
- Socialising with family and friends
