He will replace Louise Lewis, who has moved into a leadership role at Routescape, a travel company launched by Seren Collection owners Neil and Zoe Kedward in November 2018.
Additionally, Ferrante will also sit on the management board for the Seren Collection which includes Grove of Narberth, Coast Restaurant in Saundersfoot and Beach House Restaurant in Oxwich.
His most recent role was at the Phoenicia in Malta, where he was hotel manager, and he originally started his career as a kitchen chef before moving into senior management roles first at One Aldwych and then at The Berkeley – where he spent seven years as the food and beverage operations manager.
Neil Kedward said: “We are absolutely delighted to have found Thomas. He is a true career hotel professional with a fabulous management pedigree working in world class hotel venues widely respected for their levels of customer service.
“Grove of Narberth is a food led venue and so his strong F&B background and sincere interest in food at this level clearly set him apart. Thomas is a warm personality, hugely intelligent and loves change.”
Commenting on his appointment, Ferrante added: “I am really excited to be joining the Grove, a beautiful hotel in a stunning part of the world. It is a marvellous opportunity to work with the excellent team at the Grove to continue to deliver Zoe and Neil’s vision for this wonderful, warm and individual property.”
