Essex country house hotel, spa and estate, Down Hall, has announced today (16 June) the appointment of Linden Beattie as its general manager.
He has joined just as the property is currently finishing its latest round of refurbishments to the bar, lounge and terrace, following a £2.8m investment.
Beattie has over 18 years of experience in the premium hospitality sector with Down Hall adding he has a “strong record” in profit improvement, employee development and customer service. Beattie’s first task following the recent investment and development of the property will be to launch the F&B spaces at the property, as well as recruit and train, and “ensure an outstanding level of service across the board”.
Beattie joins Down Hall from The Waterfront Hotel, Spa and Golf Wyboston Lakes Resort where he reportedly progressed from hotel manager to general manager where he raised the hotel’s profile and customer service standards.
Beattie said: “I am thrilled to be joining Down Hall at such an exciting time for the property. I’m looking forward to leading the team as we navigate our way through a post-pandemic world and establishing Down Hall as one of the finest countryside hotels and wedding venues in the UK.”
