Says Mark Chambers, Managing Director, Eden Hotel Collection: “Claire brings superb experience to the role of General Manager at Bovey Castle. We are delighted to welcome Claire on board to further enhance and shape the hotel’s future development and success.”
Since the Eden Hotel Collection acquired Bovey Castle back in 2014, the hotel has won numerous awards, the most notable of which is five red AA stars in 2017 for its exceptional hospitality – the AA’s highest accolade.
Set in 275 acres of countryside on Dartmoor National Park, the flagship Eden Hotel Collection property has 60 bedrooms, 22 lodges, an 18-hole championship golf course, tennis courts, an Elan Spa – complete with Art Deco swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, treatment rooms and a dedicated Gentlemen’s Quarter – and its own deer park.
On-site experiences include falconry, archery, cider and sloe gin-making and 4×4 off-road driving.
The hotel’s Great Western restaurant – the proud recipient of 3 AA Rosettes for its culinary excellence – is overseen by talented Head Chef Mark Budd, who also manages the hotel’s casual dining option, Smith’s Brasserie.
