Our 21 hotels each have a small core of permanent management staff who recruit, train and manage over 400 seasonal employees each year. Many of our seasonal staff are recruited locally to the hotels, and in addition many of our hotels can provide on-site staff accommodation, meaning that a number of staff join us from further afield, many from overseas. Our hotels are situated in the UK’s most popular resorts, across Cornwall, Somerset & Devon, the South East, Wales, Northern England and Scotland.
