Having worked at the hotel for more than two years now, I have had the opportunity to hone my experience in guest experience and events management, whilst forming long-term relationships with an exceptionally talented team.”

“I feel very fortunate the senior manahement team have recognised my hard work and offered me this wonderful opportunity. I now look forward to getting started and putting my stamp on such an exciting role!”
