Perry Draper, 24 from Odd Down, has worked in hospitality for two and a half years. “I am here to have a look at what’s on offer. It is the new hotel in Bath and it’s going to be the best - it would be a great opportunity.”
The new general manager for the hotel is no stranger to Bath. Martin Clubbe previously worked as manager at the MacDonalds Bath Spa Hotel.
“It’s the most exciting project that has come to Bath for such a long time. Just to be part of a new project, to be part of the opening, to be able to set your own standards, to find your own team, to create something very, very special is great.
“We haven’t had to advertise a single senior position. For every senior position we’ve been oversupplied and had ten applicants. People have come to us.
“Bath does not have enough quality accommodation. People say ‘not another hotel’ but there’s huge demand for quality in Bath.
“We have 150 positions open. Before the recruitment days we had 200 inquiries from people wanting to know when we open and what was available. We are expecting 300 to 400 people over these two days. It’s just so exciting people want to be involved.”...

But none of this would be possible without an inviting atmosphere to complement the amenities.
