Barton Grange Hotel has welcomed three new managers and promoted another as part of its new vision to improve its service offering across the hotel.

Matthew Schenker joins the four-star hotel as Front of House Manager, following a similar role at The Nadler Hotel in Liverpool, whilst Laura Burgess returns to the hotel as Restaurant Manager, after an absence of four years.

Also joining the Barton Grange team is Eric Keary as Night Manager, from the Peckforton Castle, Cheshire, Eric will be responsible for the safe and smooth running of the hotel after hours. Finally, Leigh Walker has been appointed as Sales and Revenue Manager, a promotion from her previous role of Conference and Events Sales Manager.

In addition to the new appointments, Barton Grange has also rejuvenated its restaurant menu, as well as its wine menu, thanks to a partnership with local wine supplier, EWGA Wines from Warton.

The changes at the hotel were initiated as a result of new General Manager, Joseph Henry, implementing his long-term vision. Commented Joseph: “It’s a pleasure to welcome the new managers to the Barton Grange Hotel team, as well as promoting Leigh. These appointments will give the hotel a firm footing as we strengthen our offering to our guests and local community.

“As part of this new vision, the hotel is going to host a range of special events throughout 2019, including ‘Comedy Nights’ and a ‘Murder Mystery’ in the Barton Suite. We have also updated our Lounge and invite local people and businesses to take advantage of the tea, coffee and free WiFi, in a contemporary and professional environment.”
