Arriving from the Charlton House Hotel and Spa in Somerset, Lesage will work alongside No.15’s managing director Jonathan Walker during a one-month handover period.
Located on Bath’s grandest street, No.15 Great Pulteney was unveiled in December 2016 and its three Grade I Georgian townhouses offer 40 individually designed bedrooms, a cocktail bar, sitting rooms, a dispensary restaurant, and spa.
The hotel was bought by the family-owned and managed Guest Holdings in October 2019 for an undisclosed amount and Jonathan Walker continued in his role as managing director which he has held since December 2016.
Lesage has been the general manager at The Bannatyne Group’s Charlton House Hotel and Spa near Glastonbury since October 2017, while prior to that he held the same role at Exeter’s Hotel du Vin from February 2016.
Lesage said: “I am thrilled to be taking up my new role at No.15, it is such a stylish hotel with a character and energy all of its own that immediately made a real impact upon Bath’s hotel landscape.
“I am much looking forward to working with Jonathan in the coming month as he hands over the day-to-day reins and meeting the dedicated hotel team of 35 staff for a seamless transition. Bath is a fabulous, world-class city and I am also excited about becoming part of the community.”
Owners, the Guest brothers, added: “In Guillaume we are confident that we have found the person who can uphold all that has been so wonderfully created at No.15 to date and we now look to building on that success during 2020 and well beyond.
“We thank Jonathan enormously for his support and continued commitment to No.15 since last October and on behalf of the whole team at No.15, we also wish Jonathan all the very best for the future.”
