He will now lead the 150-strong team at the Elizabethan-style hotel, which is part of the QHotels portfolio. Blyth, from Suffolk, will oversee operations at the property, which is set within 150 acres of parkland and features a pool, spa, health club and restaurant.
With 30 years’ experience in the industry, Blyth has worked in operations and general management in properties across the UK, most recently looking after Holiday Inn properties in North Bristol and Essex as general manager.
Blyth said: “I’m very pleased to have joined the team at the wonderful Dunston Hall. I’m relishing the opportunity to work within a luxury property that has so much to offer its guests.
“My passion is developing members of my team, so I’m looking forward to working with Dunston Hall’s first-class employees, who are all focused on giving guests the best possible experience, whatever the reason for their visit.”
