Managing Director - Red Carnation Hotels

Jonathan Raggett has worked in hotels since leaving Westminster College with a Higher National Diploma in Hotel Management. Jonathan joined RCH in 1998 as General Manager of The Rubens Hotel. In 2000 he was promoted to Managing Director, overseeing the rapid expansion to the 17 award-winning luxury boutique hotels and a country inn which RCH now operates.

"We are a family run small collection of five- and four-star hotels who fight the big chains for business. We will never have the same Sales and Marketing spend as these players, so it is my belief that we need to make an even better job of taking care of our guests."

Michelle Devlin

Egerton Staff - Michelle

General Manager

I joined The Red Carnation Group at The Chesterfield Mayfair in September 2005 in the capacity of Executive Head Housekeeper and was delighted to be promoted to Rooms Division Manager and then Deputy General Manager.

In March 2012 I embarked on the next step of my career with Red Carnation Hotels having been offered the position of General Manager at The Egerton House Hotel. It is a wonderful property with a highly dedicated team of professional people who take great pride in our little gem.

With my team, I enjoy taking a personal care of our guests from the first introduction to every stage of your guest experience, through reservations, a warm welcome on arrival, looking after you while you are at your “new home away from home” and saying goodbye to our new found friends. I do hope that I will have the pleasure of personally welcoming you to The Egerton House Hotel.

I am proud to be working with such a great team at The Egerton House Hotel and we will do our best to make your stay with us as memorable as possible. I look forward to welcoming you soon.
