“With more than 20 years experience in the hospitality industry, I started my career in big chain hotels such as Sheraton, Le Meridien and Hilton. As a Food & Beverage Manager for a Relais & Chateaux Hotel in Zurich I worked for a small luxury country house hotel for the first time and much preferred the attention to detail and guest orientated service to the bigger bedroom factories I’d worked for in the past. After moving to the UK I worked for some beautiful country houses such as Summer Lodge Hotel and Ettington Park, before I took on my first General Manager role on the island of Jersey.  Before I finally joined Burley Manor to head the team, I oversaw the opening of a Golf Resort in the USA.

As a General Manager I am always looking for a beautiful property in a great location and Burley Manor is just that – A wonderful restaurant & rooms in a very special location! I love the concept of a country house with a twist, it makes Burley Manor very special and I like to be different.

We strive to ensure that all of our guests have a memorable and enjoyable stay with us, so my biggest tip to people visiting would be to take advantage of the team’s skills & knowledge of the area and everything about the Burley Manor experience. I’d also highly recommend sinking into a sofa in our lounge or drawing room for afternoon tea or tapas – The ideal spot for a relaxing afternoon in the New Forest.”
