Sometimes I have to sit back and reflect on how lucky I am.
As many of you will know, my career has mainly been in the hospitality industry, and therefore to continually work with Pride of Britain Hotels (as I have done for the last few years) is something I am extremely proud of.
Pride of Britain Hotels is a consortium of independently owned hotels in the UK – with an emphasis on great hospitality. Currently, there are just shy of fifty member hotels in the luxury consortium – and I’ve had the pleasure in visiting, staying at, or dining at about half of them! I consider myself very lucky. This year I had the pleasure in staying at Dormy House Hotel in the Cotswolds – following their £10m refurbishment. What a hotel! Simply stunning. No wonder it scooped the AA award for ‘Hotel of the Year’ this year (not to mention a number of other hotel and spa awards throughout 2014).
Next on my list is the beautiful Lucknam Park Hotel near Bath, which is the chosen venue to celebrate my 38th birthday in February 2015.
