When he's not on the golf course, John is tending to the beds. Housekeeper Julie keeps telling him to take his muddy boots off first...
Maintenance Man, Charles
He loves his three Rs - renovating, rejuvenating and repairing of the historic halls. A keen astronomer, he's on the hunt for UFOs!
Kitchen Porter, Rose
For over forty years Rose has whipped the hotel kitchen into shape. She hasn't lost her lovely Irish lilt in all that time!
Marketing Manager, Liz
Website, social media and newsletters. Leaflets, brochures and events — there's plenty to keep Liz out of trouble.
