What we offer our employees

The company ethos is “No request is too large, no detail too small” and is the key to delivering the exceptional guest experiences on which our reputation and success is based. 

We provide recognition programmes for outstanding performance so employees feel their accomplishments are valued and recognised. This includes the General Manager’s Tea Party and our ‘Catch a Star!’ programme celebrates achievement with public recognition and tangible rewards.

The highlight of the year is our prestigious Staff Appreciation Party in London. Employees from our hotels abroad are flown in to participate and be rewarded alongside those from the UK.
