We are an independent business, and despite going from a mere 22 staff in 1998 to well over a 100 today our core values of Care, Humility, Responsibility and Teamwork remain the same. All staff fully engaged in delivering excellent service to all customers.
This may be evidenced by talking to Sales & Marketing Director Phillip Allsopp, “As the property has grown, our key objectives are in the training of our staff and the development of our product, all with the sole aim of ensuring a guest stay is to their satisfaction on every occasion” (Phillip Allsopp).
