Staff Update:

In preparation for our exciting new development and bedroom refurbishment we have taken on a new Maintenance Manager.

Martin Oliver has 8 years experience in property maintenance and is a painter and decorator by trade, very handy when it comes to painting rooms!

He is a Cumbrian born and bred and lives locally with his family.

We are very pleased to have him onboard and he is already hard at work on his list of jobs.

So next time you come to see us, have a chat with him (although don’t chat too long, he has a lot to do!).

Ted’s Big Adventure – Mexico

So that’s Ted back from Mexico and what a time he had. He really enjoyed the Mayan city at Chichen Itza and went on a Jungle safari in a Dune Buggy. He also tried some traditional dancing and by that time he felt that he needed some time by the pool. He has come back for a rest although he is soon off to Blackpool, Edinburgh and then Malta.

So autumn is here and it’s time to clear up the garden. The flower troughs and baskets have been put away and the roses need cutting back. Here are Ronnie and Marjorie Dunbobbin (Head gardeners) with one of our assistant managers David and our new handyman Martin tidying up and I’ll think you’ll agree they’re doing a great job as these “before” and “after” pictures show

Staff Update

We have a new member of staff joining us although we have known her since 2010!

Moira Errington is joining us as a general assistant and the reason we know her already is because she was married here in 2010.

Moira has lived locally for the past 15 years and is originally from the Yorkshire Dales where she was a Nurse.

She has worked throughout the Dales in various Hotels and Restaurants for the last 10 years but has also worked in Hong Kong and has done charity work in Zimbabwe.

Moira is very involved with the local community through her work with Ageuk and is a Trustee of Saint Anne’s Hospital ( http://www.baldhiker.com/2014/05/06/the-almshouses-st-annes-hospital-appleby/).

She will be working mainly as a Breakfast Supervisor and a receptionist and we are really please to have her on board

The Cumbria Tourism Awards 2014 took place the other night and we were shortlisted for the Sustainable Tourism Award.

Although we didn't win we got a “Highly Commended” certificate, recognising all the steps we have taken to reduce our carbon footprint. Most recently we have reduced the amount of waste going to landfill by 75% and have started recycling or composting most kitchen waste which has been a great success. Providing our guests with a variety of activities locally without the need for a car has been very beneficial, and the active promotion of our electric bike rental has been an ideal way for our guests to experience the Eden valley.

End of an era...

We said goodbye yesterday to our Breakfast Manager Mike Hewitt who is retiring after several years. Mike has been a real favourite with staff and guests alike and he will be sorely missed both for his professionalism and his sense of humour. As one of our staff members put in his card “Mike, it’s been emotional”

Mike, Angela and all the management and staff wish him all the best of luck and we hope he enjoys his retirement. We are really going to miss him.

He is pictured with Mike and Angela Dunbobbin, owners of the Hotel and with some of his breakfast staff. http://ow.ly/i/5UqAR

Great news, we have been shortlisted for Cumbria Tourism's Sustainable Tourism Award!

The Hotel has been recognised before for the efforts it is making in sustainability from installing a Bio Mass Boiler to drilling our own Borehole which now supplies all the water for the Hotel. 

In our continued efforts, the Hotel has recently installed Volt meters which control the flow of electricity into the hotel and have also fitted a charging point for electric cars

Mike and Angela have said “We are delighted to have been nominated for this award and to achieve recognition locally for the work we have done to reduce our carbon footprint”

The hotel is beautiful, warm welcoming and the staff are very friendly... But it's overpriced, our room was out of date, and it has a feel of nursing home about it. (I'm guessing to keep out the riff raff) there is very little to to do once you are board of swimming and playing pool, don't get my wrong... It is a very nice place to be, I just felt it was a bit on the posh side, for old people with money to burn. There's nothing exciting happening in the local village, and eating is pricey in the hotel. No shops or attractions nearby, must drive for at least 30 mins to see any Won't be coming back. Can't say it's suitable for young people or kids. Very suited for the older generation that want to relax in a quiet place.
