Bailey has stepped down due to family reasons prompting a change of personnel which includes Marcin Kalinowski taking up the position of operations manager.
Clare Blakemore, managing director, said: “I have always been very proud of the fact that we have a loyal and dedicated team of staff…many who have been with us for years. The hospitality sector is notorious for staff turnover, so we are very happy to retain a steady team.
“Our sincerest thanks go to the Bailey family for their unwavering support, and we know that Theo and Marcin will continue to ensure that guests and patrons are afforded a wonderful stay with the first-class standards that are expected from our establishment.
Lakimov said: “Last year we launched our new Restaurant No 43 which has gone down a storm, and we also refurbished most of the ground floor areas. 2018 sees an ongoing investment programme with our largest function suite being refurbished, plus ongoing redecoration and planned bathroom refitting in our bedrooms.
“As well as running the hotel, I am passionate about promoting the career opportunities to young people considering hotels and hospitality as an option, and will continue to support the local university and colleges who are training the next generation of industry professionals.”
